Known for its refreshing, tart personality, a Margarita is a simple yet satisfying cocktail. Made with just three ingredients, it’s a great choice for a hen party or a relaxing night at home.
The classic Margarita is made with tequila and lime juice, often topped with a bit of salt for contrast. Its sweet-sour balance is easy to achieve if you know your ratios.
For the most authentic margarita, you need to use tequila that’s 100% agave. Then, you’ll need a good orange liqueur, such as Cointreau or Grand Marnier, as well as fresh lime juice.
Tequilas are distilled from the blue agave plant and come in many flavors. Blanco tequilas have a peppery flavor and reposado tequilas are smoother.
If you’re looking for a slightly sweeter margarita, try swapping half of the orange liqueur for agave nectar. You can also add a splash of club soda for a little fizz.
Another great way to enhance the taste of a traditional Margarita is to mix it up with different fruits. Pomegranate, mango, watermelon, and even blackberries are all delicious choices for a frozen fruit margarita.
You can even make a mezcal margarita, which is a great option for those who want a unique cocktail that has a bit of a kick to it. Just be sure to keep the alcohol content low.
In addition to tequila and orange liqueur, you’ll need some lime juice and ice to make the perfect Margarita. You can also add extra flavors to the cocktail, such as coconut or chocolate, for a twist on this classic drink.
To avoid the bitterness of cheap tequila, it’s important to buy a high-quality bottle. Look for one that’s labeled “puro de agave” or “100% agave.”
If you’re going to be mixing up lots of margaritas, you might want to invest in some bar tools. A shaker and a cocktail measuring cup are essential, along with a quality lime juicer.
Once you have the necessary tools, it’s time to get to work! Start by rinsing out your glasses with a bit of salt and then filling them with the tequila, lime juice, and orange liqueur.
The Cosmopolitan is one of those drinks that are easy to make and you can serve them for a variety of different occasions. It is a perfect cocktail for hen party cocktails making because it is light, easy to drink and doesn’t have too much alcohol in it, meaning it won’t leave you feeling hungover!

Despite its age, it is still a favorite of many. This drink is a popular choice for those who enjoy fruity drinks and has become a staple in bars across the country.
It is usually served in a large martini glass and is very simple to make. The main ingredients are a high quality vodka, Triple Sec (or Cointreau), Cranberry juice and lime.
To make a cosmopolitan, simply add the ingredients to a cocktail shaker with ice and shake well. Once shaken, pour it into a martini glass. A classic garnish is an orange peel and a lime twist, but you can also use a lemon twist instead if you prefer a citrusy flavour.
There are a few variations on this classic, including the blue cosmo, which uses blue curacao and white cranberry juice. Another is the cosmocello, which replaces the lime juice with Italian lemon liqueur.
The cosmopolitan is an elegant and sophisticated drink that makes a great pre-dinner drink. This cocktail is a little sweet, a little tart and is just a perfect mix of flavours. It’s also quite a short drink so you can easily drink it without getting a headache!
3. Gin & Tonic
The Gin and Tonic is one of the most classic hen party cocktails and is easy to make at home. Using a combination of gin and tonic water, it is usually made with two parts tonic to one part gin but can be tailored to suit the taste of each person at the party.
When making a gin and tonic, it is important to use a quality gin and a quality tonic water. The right tonic water will not overpower the botanicals of your gin but will enhance them and add an additional element to the drink. Tonic water is a clear, effervescent soft drink that contains quinine from the bark of the cinchona tree. It is often flavored with sugar or other sweeteners and citric acid for extra flavor.
A good tonic will also be infused with herbs or spices to enhance their aromas and flavors. Adding fresh or dried herbs to your gin and tonic is a great way to create a cocktail that is unique and interesting.
Another great way to make a Gin and Tonic is to add a twist of lime. This will help balance the bitterness of the gin and give it an added kick of citrus flavour. Try running a lime wedge around the rim of the glass and squeezing it into the drink before topping it off with tonic water.
You can also try making a Gin and Tonic with a honey or simple syrup. Simmer the honey or simple syrup with thyme, rosemary and sage for about 5 minutes before combining it with your gin and tonic water. It is then ready to serve.

The gin and tonic has a very interesting history. It was first created by the British Army to help them prevent Malaria. It was found that quinine had a very harsh taste, so soldiers mixed it with water, sugar and gin to make it less harsh and easier for them to drink.
4. Bloody Mary
A Bloody Mary is a classic cocktail that’s sure to make an impression on your guests. This popular brunch drink is made with vodka and a mixture of tomato juice, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, hot sauce and horseradish. You can garnish it with anything from a celery stick to mini cheeseburgers, and it makes the perfect addition to any brunch menu.
The origins of the Bloody Mary are a little murky, but there’s no doubt that it has become an iconic cocktail. It’s a staple in bars around the world, and its story is just as rich as it is delicious.
It’s a bit polarizing as a drink, but once you’ve tried one, it becomes a favorite for many people. The savory flavors of the mix are balanced by the spiciness of the horseradish and the kick of the vodka.
When you’re preparing your Bloody Marys, make sure to get the best quality ingredients available so that they have an authentic taste. You’ll want to choose a high-quality vodka, as well as a tomato juice that doesn’t taste too watery or artificially flavored.
You can make your own homemade Bloody Mary mix, but it’s also easy to find a premade version in the grocery store. Just be sure to check the label and make sure it’s gluten free if you have a gluten allergy or sensitivity.
To create your own homemade Bloody Mary mix, simply combine a variety of ingredients in a large pitcher. You’ll want to add a splash of Worcestershire sauce, sriracha, and prepared horseradish, as well as some celery salt, garlic salt, and black pepper.
Once you’ve combined all of these ingredients, you can store the mix in a refrigerator for up to seven days. When you’re ready to serve it, just combine a cup of the mix with some vodka.
