Mixing drinks

Originally uploaded by mincaye.

My cousin, Ronny, celebrates his 20th birthday today. His family dropped by last night, and at about midnight we celebrated with cocktails and fruit cake.

I made him a Kamikaze (two measures of vodka with a hint of lime cordial), and two Daiquiri (not sure if it has a plural) for Leanne and me (a measure of rum, nearly a measure of lemon juice, and a little sugar; I ended up using pandan syrup as the castor sugar was nowhere to be found).

The amounts were just right, and filled the cocktail glasses nicely. (I think I'm getting better at this!)

Actually, I'm beginning to feel that I enjoy these 'elegant' cocktails more than the fizzier ones. Somehow the ones that are mixed in tall glasses with drinks like ginger ale and tonic, just don't taste as 'cocktail-ish.'
