You should know the keywords of the wine list
The main ingredients of cocktails, usually used as base wines are brandy, gin, vodka, rum, whiskey and tequila.
Below, let’s popularize the most common base wine flavors: (make sure you understand at a glance)
Rum (Rum) Many feminine cocktails love to use rum as the base wine, there is a “tropical atmosphere”, that is sweet! Because it is a by-product of refining sucrose.
Vodka (Vodka) cocktails suitable for summer often use vodka as the base wine. It is colorless and transparent, as clear as water, and the prepared cocktails are often very pure. High alcohol content will produce a weak acid and spicy taste.
Brandy Brandy is a spirit, but it is distilled from wine or fermented fruit juice, so it will have a strong fruity flavor.
Gin Gin, also known as gin, generally has flavors of spices, herbs or fruits. Gin is the main flavor, and flavors such as lemon grass, cinnamon, ginger, citrus and coriander are also mixed.
Bourbon whiskey (Bourbon) produced in the United States Bourbon It is made from mixed grains, but the proportion of corn must be at least 51%, so Bourbon whiskey often has a distinct corn flavor.

Scotch Blended Scotch whisky is brewed with grains, but Scotch whisky uses peat (Peat, a unique product formed in ancient swamp environment, often used as fuel) when brewed, so compared to other whiskies, it will With a clear smoky smell. Very manly…

Choice and quantity control are where the bartender is. So it’s really not possible to mix two kinds of wine together to make a cocktail! A cocktail may have two or three kinds of spirits, and the liqueurs (Liqueur) added to the base wine are changed.
What is Creme de Cassis, Apricot Brandy, Kummel, Tia Maria, Crème de Cacao, Advocaat ), Bailey’s Irish Cream (Bailey’s Irish Cream)…… These inexplicable things can make the cocktail produce a rich taste.
Of course, in addition to wine, the change will also add something you can guess at a glance: such as fruit juice, fruit, mint and other vanilla…even cocoa powder, egg whites, skipping sugar (what are these ghosts?)

How is wine and chicken tail together?
Strictly defined, a wine made by mixing two or more wines is a “cocktail”. However, when you use wine as a song, have you ever thought about how “wine” and “chicken” are together? In fact, there is no official statement about the source of the cocktail. The two more interesting statements are-
Statement 1: During the American Revolutionary War, a general died in battle, and the general was deeply loved during his lifetime. Therefore, after his death, the subordinates “crowdfunding” the wife of the general who was good at winemaking and opened a bar in the military camp to help She makes a living.
In order to repay the soldiers’ care, the brave general’s wife sneaked into the enemy’s leader’s house on a dark night of the month, and grabbed the leader’s favorite rooster to prepare delicious dishes, and then collected all the good wines she had hidden. Mix it up and let the soldiers enjoy it. The soldiers happily put the rooster’s tail feathers in the wine glass to celebrate. The cocktail was born! (Innocent rooster…)
Statement 2: After the American Revolutionary War, in a bar in Kentucky, the United States often gathered a group of “cockfighting” drinkers. They discussed various interesting stories of cockfighting, and they kept adding wine, and finally the boss watched the wine. They were almost drunk, and they mixed the rest of the wine together and let the drinkers drink it for free. So there was the name of Cock (rooster) + Tale (story), and later tale evolved into tail (tail), and then the name of cocktail (Cocktail).
