Some cocktails are known for their delicious taste, while others are better known for their distinctive appearance. The Midori Sour cocktail combines the best of both worlds — a sweet, fruity taste and a fun green color that can add a festive touch to any party. Best of all, you don’t need to be a mixology expert. Midori debuted in 1978 at Studio 54, the notorious New York nightclub, which was a fitting venue for the bright and showy liqueur that stands out among all other bottles on a back bar.
30 ml / 1 oz. Midori melon liqueur
30 ml / 1 oz. vodka
15 ml/ ½ oz. freshly squeezed lime juice
15 ml/ ½ oz. freshly squeezed lemon juice
Add all ingredients except the soda water into a Collins glass with ice.
The Horse’s Neck cocktail is a classic cocktail that originated at the end of the 19th century and, as a typical highball, belongs to the long drinks. It is made from Cognac (sometimes Bourbon Whiskey) and Ginger Ale. Optionally, you can add 1-2 dashes of Angostura bitters to give the cocktail more depth. The drink owes its name to a thinly sliced, long lemon spiral, the end of which protrudes from the glass and is reminiscent of a horse’s neck.
45 ml/ 1½ oz. Cognac
120 ml/ 3 oz. Ginger Ale
Dash of Angostura Bitters (optional)
Pour Cognac and Ginger Ale directly into highball glass with ice cubes.
Tommy’s Margarita is a variant of the Margarita cocktail. The Tommy`s Margarita is made withTequila, lime juice and agave nectar and served in a cocktail glass. It is distinct from the Margarita cocktail in its omission of orange liqueur and its substitution of agave nectar.

15 ml/ ½ oz. freshly squeezed lime juice
2 bar spoons of agave nectar
Pour all ingredients into shaker with ice.
Shake well and strain into cocktail glass.
The cocktail was conceived in San Francisco in 1990 by Julio Bermejo at his parents’ restaurant called Tommy’s. Bermejo had been recently introduced to agave nectar as an ingredient, and, although it was still expensive at the time, he used it to enhance the a agave flavor of the cocktail instead of using orange liqueur to highlight the citrus flavor in the original Margarita recipe.

The Masturbating Butterfly cocktail has a strange name because it is a strange cocktail. The taste of the melon mixed with the herbs from Jägermeister and enhanced with vodka and a few other ingredients, giving the cocktail an unmistakable taste. Well and the name is also a matter of taste.

The John Collins is a Collins cocktail – that is, a long drink stirred with ice and topped with soda – made from London dry gin, lemon juice, sugar and carbonated water. The John Collins cocktail was attested to in 1869, but may be older. It is believed to have originated with a headwaiter of that name who worked at Limmer’s Old House in London around 1790–1817.
3 parts / 45 ml/ 1 ½ oz. Gin
2 parts / 30 ml/ 1 oz. freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 part / 15 ml/ ½ oz. sugar syrup
4 parts / 60 ml/ 2 oz. carbonated water
Pour all ingredients directly into highball glass filled with ice.
Garnish with lemon slice and marshino cherry.
Add a dash of Angostura bitters.
Difference between Fizz and Collins. It is difficult to distinguish between a fizz and a collins because both drinks are sours supplemented with soda water. The recipes are often the same or differ only in details. The “official” recipes for a Gin Fizz and a John Collins differ, for example, in that the Gin Fizz is not “built” in the guest glass, but the sour mix is shaken separately with ice and only then filled with soda in the guest glass. In addition, it is served in a tumbler, while the Collins is served in a Collins or long drink glass.
Off to Cyprus. To Paphos, to be precise. Paphos is not the largest city in Cyprus, it really doesn’t have the best beach in the world and the sights can be counted om one hand. But Paphos has probably the best cocktail bar in Cyprus – probably as compensation. And I was there. At Mr. Tippler in the picturesque old town of Paphos. There the bartender Greg welcomed me in a friendly manner at the entrance of Mr. Tippler to show me one of his signature cocktails: the Angel`s Grog. The bar is very modern and tastefully decorated and has many exceptional cocktails on the menu. And the staff is really great. If you ever come to Paphos, be sure to go to Mr. Tippler in Kosta Georgiou 3 and try some of the signature cocktails from Mr. Tippler. Perhaps one of the best things to do in Cyprus besides the good weather, and give Greg my regards.

Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice and shake.

Add some more crushed ice to top of the glass.

Cheers from Cyprus!
Two things make the Angel`s Grog cocktail something very special. First, the cocktail is served in a clay pot made exclusively for Mr. Tippler by a local Cypriot pottery. Second, the Mastiha ingredient. Mastiha is a sweet liqueur produced with the mastikha resin from the Greek island of Chios. It has a distinctive flavor, reminiscent of pine and herbs. It is claimed to have medicinal properties and to aid digestion.
