Learning how to make an island voodoo cocktail is great practice in mixology, and perfect for a beginner. The reason is because this drink is so unique, and a bit crazy if you ask anyone, that you will learn that not everything may go hand in hand. To make a great cocktail, you have to be willing to try new things, so here goes nothing.
To make an island voodoo cocktail, you will need:
- Cocktail Shaker, Ice Cubes
- Rye Whiskey
- To start the island voodoo cocktail, prepare your cocktail shaker by filling it half way up with your ice cubes. It is important to have this cocktail chilling before its even ready, simple things like this can change the way a cocktail may taste. So once your cocktail shaker is prepped, you are ready to continue.
- Now that you are ready to begin your mixology with the island voodoo cocktail, add your liquor. Start with adding 1 ½oz of your rye whiskey, 1oz of your Averna, and ½oz of your Limoncello. Now that everything is ready, shake your heart out. Make sure that this cocktail is good and mixed before you do anything else.
- Once you are ready get your chilled cocktail glass and your garnish prepared so you can enjoy this wonderful island voodoo cocktail. You can use an orange peel, or anything that looks best to you to garnish your cocktail glass then shake your cocktail shaker one last time for good luck and pour into your glass.
Don’t be afraid to add something or more of something if you feel like your cocktail could be better. Also, don’t be afraid to try new things, this could just be the beginning of your mixology, so enjoy. Drink responsibly and enjoy!
