In real estate the mantra is location, location, location but in mixing cocktails its technique, technique, technique. Most home bartenders tend to just throw the ingredients together and serve the drink and in a lot of commercial establishments they do the same thing. The way a drink is prepared can make a big difference in how it tastes and in the atmosphere created.

Chilling a Glass

Pour some liquor into the prewarmed glass and heat a smaller amount over a flame or in a saucepan on a stove. Light it with a match and then pour it into the glass being used very carefully. This will cause the rest of the alcohol to ignite. Be careful, flames can jump up qu...
