We all get amazed with the work of bartenders adding magic of flavors to our favorite drinks. Whenever we go out to drink, it is always delightful to surprise our taste buds with different relishes. But why to go for monotonous styles at home. The recipes of cocktails require many ingredients which are not always readily available at home. To make this easy, here are some of the easiest and effortless cocktail recipes with slight changes in the original ones which you can try any day.
Please remember to keep the alcohol content not more than 60ml in a glass. All of us have different tastes, so you can add the flavors and sweeteners as per your taste. Even if you are counting calories, you can start with one cocktail followed by regular ones with water or soda only.
