Caipirinha is a cocktail originally from Brazil, made with lime, brown sugar, Cachaca (sugar cane distillate), and lots of crushed ice. Its name derives from the diminutive of the Portuguese word caipira (simple, humble) with which the inhabitants of the remote countryside of Brazil are called, a country in which Caipirinha is served in all places as it is very representative of the place. Its simplicity and sweetness have made it one of the 50 best drinks in the world.
Caipiroska is a fairly modern reinterpretation of Caipirinha, a "historical" cocktail, originally from Brazil, based on Cachaca (sugar cane distillate). The preparation and ingredients of the two cocktails are essentially the same: change the alcohol base (dry vodka for the Caipiroska, Cachaca for the Caipirinha) and the addition of strawberries in the Caipiroska. The Caipiroska can also be prepared with other fruits, according to taste, by adding the crushed fruit (or smoothie) or its syrup; we will have like this: Caipiroska with strawberry, mango, banana, etc ...
White Rum, Coke, Lime Juice, Ice, Lemon.
One of the easiest cocktails to make is Cuba Libre, so easy that it can also be brewed at home. The ideal glass to make it is the tumbler glass (this glass is cylindrical or slightly flared truncated conical shape, suitable for cocktails, but even if you have another glass that's okay) filled with two or three ice cubes, the juice of half a lemon and one and a half parts of White Rum. The rest of the glass should be filled with cola and decorated with a slice of lime and two straws, not one more, not one less.
Campari, Orange Juice, Ice, Orange.
Campari Orange is a classic drink born in the fabulous 60s and immediately entered the myth of cocktails. It is prepared with bitters and orange juice, a few ice cubes and some orange slices to garnish and is ideal to open your appetite or to start a sparkling evening at the best.
Gin, tonic water, lemon, ice.
Gin tonic is a long drink based on gin and tonic water, known thanks to the British East India Company division, in the eighteenth century. The variant is vodka tonic, often served with ice and lime or lemon. I have a memory about this drink, which brings me back to my friend Carlo. He was a good taster and when he was on a diet, he went into our favorite place in Rome, the “Wine Time” and ordered a “gin tonicsssss” to gratify himself. It was actually a large glass of sparkling water, with lots of ice and lime. The barman now knew and served it.
Cuban white rum, cane sugar, angostura, 8 leaves mint, ice, crushed or cubed, sparkling water, lime juice.
The Mojito is a famous alcoholic cocktail (long drink) of Cuban origin, based on white rum and scented with crushed mint leaves together with cane sugar, and lime juice, ingredients to which angostura, ice and soda must be added . It seems that the name Mojito derives from the voodoo term "Mojo" (spell) and therefore means small spell.
Campari, red vermouth, soda (a splash), ½ slice oranges, lemon zest, ice.
A cocktail that conquers at the first sip thanks to its special texture and the extraordinary combination of flavors. Its origin is unknown but there are several legends that accompany its history. In fact, it seems that the American was born in the 1930s and that his name is dedicated to the Italian boxer Primo Carnera, very famous at that time in the USA. Considered the "father" of Negroni, the cocktail, however, owes part of its success also to cinematography where it has often cut out important frames. The role we all remember?

Gin, Bitter Campari, Vermouth, 1 slice of Oranges, Ice.
Negroni is an alcoholic pre-dinner cocktail with a typical dark orange color, made with red vermouth, Campari bitters and gin. It was conceived in Florence in 1919-20 by Count Camillo Negroni. Today Negroni is considered one of the most famous Italian aperitifs, and is known all over the world simply as "Negroni". The simplicity of the Negroni cocktail is disarming: 1/3 of Gin, 1/3 of Campari bitters and 1/3 of red vermouth. A few simple ingredients for a magical, very fragrant blend, where the bitter taste of the bitter blends perfectly with the pungent aroma of the gin.
