Hints and Tips

You don't have to make your own sugar syrup, simply buy it from any supermarket. I prefer to make it as it lasts for month, super easy to make and I can use it for other cocktail recipes.
Invest in the good cocktail shaker and a few different measures. I prefer to use standard professional measures as you always get additional 15ml measure at the back of the original one.
Make 2 cocktails at the same time in one shaker, just double up the recipe. Don't try to make more than 2 at the time as it will over spill.
