<![CDATA[Pisco Sour Mixology course demonstration]]>Wed, 07 Jun 2017 19:50:12 GMThttp://mobilecocktailsatl.com/blog/pisco-sour-mixology-course-demonstration
Here were are doing a mixology course for one of our corporate clients. You can see the other guests were really getting into it. This was a great group and a lot of fun. Here's the ingredients and preparation notes.

 Pisco Sour  -  In a coupe glass
2 oz. Pisco, ¾ oz. of simple syrup, ¾ oz of lime juice, egg white, Angostura bitters
Add ice and water to the cup to quick chill it. In your shaker add all the ingredients except for the bitters WITHOUT ICE, “dry shake” the ingredients very vigorously for ten seconds. (your goal is to emulsify the egg white) “break open the shaker” and add ice as if making a martini, dump the ice and water from the glass and pour the contents over a strainer into the glass. Drop four or five drops of bitters into the glass. (bitters are used for aromatics and not necessarily for taste so they should be suspended in the egg froth) Finally run a straw through the bitters making a fancy  / signature design. (the fresher the eggs the more congealed the whites will be and this is preferred)
 
This is also a pre or post dinner drink, it is a true classic found in fancy restaurants all over the world. Pisco is a Peruvian alcohol. Sours are more often done with whiskey or vodka.

<![CDATA[Pisco Sour]]>Tue, 10 Jan 2017 23:04:31 GMThttp://mobilecocktailsatl.com/blog/pisco-sourPisco sour often drank in the caribean actually started in Peru. It was likely modeled after the whiskey sour and was created in the 20's.

To make this great cocktail you will need Pisco, egg whites, sugar, limes, ice and bitters and a proper glass. I suggest a coupe, other glasses could be a low ball or martini glass. I have substituted lemon juice for lime juice with a great deal of success.

2 oz Pisco
3/4 oz simple syrup
3/4 oz lime juice
1 (can use more) egg white
3 dashes of bitters
1 lime wheel

Shake the pisco, simple syrup and lime juice over ice, strain into a glass. Using the same shaker, use the shell to strain the egg white and toss the yolk, also be careful not to get any shell into the shaker, shake the egg white vigorously for 15 seconds, pour the egg white emusion over the cocktail and then garnish with a lime wheel and finally drop three dashes of bitters over the whites.

<![CDATA[One tequila dream]]>Fri, 06 Jan 2017 22:00:28 GMThttp://mobilecocktailsatl.com/blog/one-tequila-dreamWe do at least one or two mixology classes a month. Usually we do these for small groups. Our classes are two hours long and we can do as many as 4 select / mixology style cocktails. Usually a guest or two will get up and make cocktails along side of our mixologist. Doing cocktail classes is a great way to bond with friends, family, or coworkers. Here is an example of a drink we created that has had an amazing reception among our guests.  #tequila @tequila @tequilacocktails@mobilecocktailsatl

<![CDATA[Go and ask your brother]]>Wed, 10 Aug 2016 22:08:56 GMThttp://mobilecocktailsatl.com/blog/go-and-ask-your-brotherSo the day of your wedding is approaching and you have to supply all the coolers, ice, Coke, and Sprite, limes and so on. Who has time for all that? Now imagine you have a small window in which to get in and out of your wedding venue. Who do you think will be carrying all that ice? That's where we come in. For $5 a head we will take care of all of that for you. (minimum 30 people) Do you want your brother who flew in from Arizona having to haul cases of soda from the van to the bar area in the sun, or the rain? It may be a luxury but it is worth paying for in most cases.
