Have you ever thought how nice it would be to make your own cocktails at home? Not been sure exactly what the measurements are and how long to shake it around?
Award winning cocktail bartender Jacob Jackman is bringing you a masterclass designed to not only teach you interesting titbits of trivia, but to also leave you fully capable of whipping up a quality cocktail from the comfort of your own home.
In this episode you will be learning about rum, and how to make the perfect Daquiri. Known as the ‘holy trinity’ of rum drinks, the Daquiri is a staple across the whole world.
As well as the perfect daquiri recipe, Jacob will be teaching you the basic principles of balance, dilution and shaking, so that whatever cocktail you try your hand at you will be able to succeed!
Not only this but woven into the method will be some of the madness of rum, with stories of the inception in the Caribbean, why it was called “kill devil”, and the British Navy’s fascination with it.
For this masterclass you will need: One cocktail shaker, one drinks measure (or any old measuring jug), lots of ice, 1 bottle white rum, plenty of freshly squeezed lime juice and sugar syrup. For the best result we recommend you make your own syrup with one part water to one part sugar! Simply add sugar to water over a low heat and stir until all the sugar is dissolved. Voila!
Jacob Jackman is an Award Winning cocktail bartender from Brighton with a passion for the history of alcohol and years of experience slinging drinks in some of the best bars in the UK.
