Crushed ice is an essential ingredient of cocktails that many people overlook. In addition to keeping your cocktails chilled and refreshing, ice adds some texture to your drink and dramatically improves its overall quality.
Crushed ice can make any drink a treat, but adding some crushed ice to your non-alcoholic cocktail simply gives it an ‘out of this world!’ taste!
As people become more aware of the harmful effects of alcohol, their cocktail preferences have also changed. The trend of non-alcoholic beverages and cocktails is here to stay.
According to the Bacardi Cocktail Trends Report 2022, about 58% of people globally are drinking more NoLo (non-alcoholic and low-ABV) cocktails than the previous year.
If you’re a sober-curious consumer who enjoys cocktail parties, you might have already heard about the Nilsson, an unorthodox tropical drink that freshens you up in the first sip.
Inspired by Harry Nilsson’s song ‘Coconut,’ the drink is a mixture of pina colada and daiquiri.
To make the drink, you simply need to grab some crushed ice from your ice machine and fill it up in a rocks glass. Fill two-thirds of a cocktail shaker and add some ice cubes, lime juice, pimento bitters, and coconut cream. Shake it well for up to 15 seconds and pour it over the crushed ice in your rock glass. Garnish the drink with a lime wheel, and enjoy!
Ginger and Pineapple Punch
If you’re tired of the typical whiskeys and cocktails, get ready to try something new this time.
Ginger and Pineapple punch is the best treat you can give yourself at the end of a hectic summer day to wash off all the day’s humidity and heat and delight your senses with its refreshing taste.
To prepare the drink, you need one lime, equal amounts of pineapple juice and ginger beer (750 ml, each), crushed ice, and mint springs. Strain the pineapple juice, crushed ice, lime juice, and mint into a blender container and blend it for a few seconds.
Take some fresh crushed ice from your ice machine and put it in a cocktail glass. Pour the drink from the blender container into the cocktail glass.
Now top it with ginger beer and garnish with mint springs. Your drink is ready to serve!
