5 Hacks To Fix Sub Standard Cocktails

Next time at a bar nearby or at a friend’s party if at all you were served a cocktail that was below the bar and you wondered if there was anything you could do to fix it yourself or instruct the bartender, then this blog post is for you, for we are bringing you some quick fixes for various cocktails when not up to the mark.

1. Concentrated lime juice: While we always recommend using only fresh lime juice in your cocktails, concentrated lime juice has its own advantage, this sweet yet tangy syrup can instantly give you that citrusy punch in cocktails like Commodore. Also, it can upgrade the taste of any subpar beer.

2. Angostura bitters: Next time when you tasted a cocktail which is sweeter than it has to be, do not get upset and shout at the bartender, instead ask him to add a few drops of Angostura bitters, which can transform your sweet cocktail to a more superior taste.

3. Maggi seasoning: Whenever your Bloody Mary or Michelada is not spicy enough, just add a dash of Maggi seasoning, made from fermented wheat protein it has a meaty and a slightly smoky taste.

4. Hot sauce: Along with the Maggi seasoning you can also opt to add hot sauce to add that necessary kick to your Bloody Mary. Also if your whiskey sour is made bland a dash of hot sauce will make you discover a whole new flavor.

5. Salt: This is not just for the tequila shots or to rim your cocktail glasses. Salt helps to bridge the gap between sweet and sour cocktails which can then enhance its taste. Also, you can fix a bad negroni with a pinch of salt sprinkled over the top.

So whenever you are at a bar or a pub and want to try something more than your usual peg of Johnny Walker whiskey, or Antiquity blue, or a shot of Smirnoff vodka, then order a cocktail. Do not worry if it turned out to be less than the usual in taste as now you know how to fix it.
