It’s All In The Tools

A bad maker blames his tools. So don’t be that guy. Be prepared and keep your tools ready before you start making your cocktail. Ensure that you have a cocktail shaker, a strainer, a lowball rocks glass or tumbler and a muddler or spoon for muddling. If you’re on a budget then don’t worry, use the things you have lying around your kitchen as substitutes.

Create And Concoct

Take the fresh mint leaves and drop them at the bottom of your cocktail shaker. Use your muddler or the back of a spoon to gently twist, press and muddle the mint leaves which results in the release of their flavours and oils. Next, pour in the vodka, fresh lime juice and syrup (sugarcane or simple) into your cocktail shaker. Now fill the shaker with ice and shake all the ingredients thoroughly, until well mixed. About 15-20 seconds should do the trick to give you that perfectly chilled temp.

And That’s A Serve

An often overlooked part of making a cocktail is how it is served. Make sure that you pay as much attention to serving your delightful concoction as you did to making it! Take your lowball rocks glass or tumbler and fill it with some crushed ice. Next, with a fine mesh sieve, strain your punchy cocktail mix into the glass, over the ice. Garnish your drink with a sprig of fresh mint or a lime wheel. A truly unique touch to your sugarcane smash would be to use a thin and long sugarcane stick as a stirrer, to truly drive home the flavour and authenticity of your drink. It will serve as a fun element to further enhance your cocktail.

This sugarcane smash cocktail is a crowd favourite, especially in the summers as it refreshes, along with giving the consumer a complex depth of flavour. So create, concoct and drink responsibly!
