Making homemade chocolate smoothies is another way to use cocoa powder and chocolate bars. Such drinks may be alcoholic and non-alcoholic. To make the latter, you can take milk, cream, ice cream, yogurt and even tea as the basis. Alcohol-containing drinks are not whipped, but simply mixed or poured into a glass in layers. For alcohol-free cocktails, a blender or mixer is most often required.
The history of the origin of cocktails
In our turbulent time of information technology, even children know that “cocktail” in translation from English means “cock tail”. But what started this habit of mixing different drinks? This is already known to fewer people. Someone does not even want to know this, sips a cocktail through a straw and enjoys life. To your health!
And for the curious, we’ll inform you that the history of the origin of cocktails began on the American continent in the 18th century. It was then that the Spaniards and the Portuguese fascinated the locals with a gambling spectacle - cockfights: bullies, representatives of the chicken detachment, mated with each other, multi-colored feathers flew in different directions, and the hot fans made bets. The loser was the one who retired from the battlefield. And here emotions beat over the edge. Fists scratched their hands with the fans, so the celebration of the win often ended in a fight. Forgive them that. After all, it was they, the brawlers, who were the first to mix the drinks that came to hand. The benefit of these drinks was a lot. The mixes turned out multi-colored, like cock feathers that were scattered around.
For cocktails, glasses and glasses of the most diverse shapes are suitable. However, there is one indispensable condition: they should be made of clear glass. Typically, soft drinks of this type are drunk from flat glasses of large diameter with a volume of 100-120 ml, “cocktails after evening coffee” or layered cocktails from tall narrow glasses, and strong cocktails from glasses of various shapes with a volume of 60–70 ml. Soft drinks, the components of which are not mixed, but poured in layers, are usually prepared directly in a glass of direct shape. Glasses for refreshing non-alcoholic cocktails can be of any shape, but always with a volume of 150-250 ml.
Recall that a cocktail is a cold drink. To enhance the feeling of coldness, give the glass a “frozen” look by placing it in the refrigerator for a while or filling it with crushed ice.
The “hoarfrost” along the edges of the glass will undoubtedly enhance the feeling of “frozen.” Depending on the components included in the cocktail recipe, make “hoarfrost” from coarse salt or sugar. To do this, rub the top edge of the glass with the juice of any fruit (most conveniently with a slice of lemon) and immerse the glass in a salty or sweet “hoarfrost”. You can make a sweet “hoarfrost” multicolored: mix sugar or coconut flakes with food colors, you can add cocoa, cinnamon or ground coffee.
