World Cocktail Day 2022: lift spirits with these six drinks


The rise of mocktails 2:28 (CNN) — We’re in for another Friday the 13th. In a world full of trouble, who needs more?
Fortunately for the superstitious (at least for those who like to enjoy an alcoholic drink from time to time), May 13 is also World Cocktail Day 2022.
What better way to stay in a good mood than to have a delicious drink or two to ward off bad luck? CNN Travel has raided its own liquor cabinet, so to speak, and brought out some of our favorite cocktails from around the world in recent years to celebrate this day. Mint Julep You don’t have to wait for the Kentucky Derby to enjoy a Mint Julep.

The Julep, Mint and sugar mixed with crushed ice and spirits like bourbon and rum have been a staple of the American South since the early 1800s. The link between juleps and racecourses dates back to at least the 1820s, when there are references to sterling silver julep cups being presented as trophies to the first-place horsemen. “It unites two of Kentucky’s most well-known industries: horse racing and bourbon,” says Chris Goodlett, chief curator of collections at the Kentucky Derby Museum. Pisco Sour At Chipe Libre, in Santiago de Chile, they make drinks with pisco from Chile and Peru.
Credit: Chipe Libre The Pisco Sour is a classic South American cocktail. And, like many food and drink favorites, it has a long and disputed history behind its creation. With a lively mix of citrus and earthy pisco that practically dances on the tongue, of course everyone wants to take the credit. This version is served at the renowned Chipe Libre pisco bar (José Victorino Lastarria 282, Santiago) in Santiago de Chile, which diplomatically serves both the Peruvian and Chilean versions of the drink. Chipe Libre Pisco Sour 3 ounces of pisco 1 ounce of lemon juice 1 ounce of simple syrup Combine the ingredients in a cocktail shaker, fill with ice, shake vigorously and strain into a chilled glass. Peruvian Pisco: when Pachamama says present 2:36 Hurricane David Hurricane David has a great impact.

It is labeled “Grade 5” and comes from Basil’s Bar on the private island of Mustique. (That’s in St. Vincent and the Grenadines, in the Caribbean.) A classic beach bar, it’s a place where music floats through the windows on the waves, but you can recreate the experience at home with this recipe: Hurricane David 1 ounce strong white rum (Wray & Nephew brand, if you can find it) 1 ounce vodka 1 ounce dark rum ½ ounce Kahlúa ½ ounce lime juice ½ ounce simple syrup Combine ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice Shake vigorously and serve in a glass with ice and a slice of green lemon. Miami Mojito The mojito is a staple of Miami nightlife.

Back in 2017, CNN went to Miami to learn the secrets of the mojito from the master, producer and Grammy-winning musician Emilio Estefan. Estefan’s edition uses four local lemons, a sprig of mint, and a homemade sugar syrup. The ingredients are mixed and Estefan is generous with the rum. But sugar cane is the key ingredient. Bénédictine / Montecarlo Will a Montecarlo achieve “popular drink” status in your social circle?

And while they’re famous for their wine, the French also know a thing or two about cocktails. Bénédictine is a French liqueur that has been around for half a millennium. It is a digestive made with almost 30 herbs. Although the exact mix is ​​a secret, it contains angelica, hyssop and lemon balm. Try it in a Monte Carlo. Montecarlo 2 ounces of rye whiskey ½ ounce of Bénédictine A couple of drops of Angostura bitters. Put the ingredients in a mixing glass with ice and mix for about 30 seconds until they are well chilled. Then strain into a chilled old fashioned glass over a large ice cube.

Singapore Sling The Singapore Sling has been around for over 100 years.

The original recipe has been lost, but there is a more recent one given by Raffles’ head barman in 2015: Gin (30ml) Cherry Brandy (15ml) Cointreau ( 7.5ml) DOM Bénédictine (7.5ml) Angostura bitters (a splash) Grenadine (10ml) Pineapple juice (120ml) Lemon juice (15ml) Shake well and strain into glasses filled with ice. Other Drinking Opportunities If you can’t join the World Cocktail Day celebration this Friday, May 13, you’ll soon have another excuse to toast: May 21 is World Whiskey Day. — Christopher Ross, Elizabeth Wallace, Francesca Street, Lia Picard and Gillian Rhys contributed reporting.
