Bartender’s tips and advice

  • Always try to use fresh squeezed lemon juice. Using fresh juices is key to preparing classic cocktails with a great taste. There´s at least 1 oz. (= 3 cl) of juice in every lemon.
  • The Florida Sling is a variant of the popular Singapore Sling. The main difference is replacing the soda water with pineapple juice.
