Learning how to make a top hat cocktail is quite interesting, and very rewarding. This drink is not very well known yet, but is catching on more and more, and is starting to be loved my many. If you like sweet but smoky flavors then you will love this fruity drink.
To make a top hat cocktail, you will need:
- Cocktail shaker
- Crushed ice
- Seville orange juice
- Red currant nectar
- Rye Whiskey
- Chilled cocktail glass
- To start your top hat cocktail you must have a shaker. The shaker is very important because just mixing this drink will not do the job, nor will it taste the way it is suppose to. Now that you have your shaker all dusted off, fill about half way with your crushed ice. Always add your ingredients in a shaker with the ice already in it.
- Now that you have your shaker ready to add the ingredient, do just that! First starting with the bourbon add about 1 1/2 oz. then 1/4 oz. of honey, of course your 1/2 oz. of your Seville orange juice, 1/2 oz. of your red currant nectar, and finally 1/4 oz. of your rye whiskey.
- Shake. Now that you have everything combined in your shaker, shake very well for at least 30 seconds.
- Get your chilled glass out, and pour the contents of your shaker inside. You can add garnish, but you do not need to feel obliged to if it’s just for you. You can use an orange peel, or anything else for that matter.
Now that you have your top hat cocktail, sit back, relax and enjoy your delicious fresh drink. Feel free to add more of any one ingredient to your glass if you feel you should, but be careful because if you add to much you could be changing the name of your cocktail. Drink responsibly, and enjoy!
