Classics that date back to the early days of the golden cocktail era often consist of no more than a spirit stirred up with a liqueur and some bitter over ice. In such a mix the quality of the spirit, the measures and the expertise of the bartender matters quite a lot as you don’t have heaps of juice or soda to hide the flavor of the spirit and make it resemble whatever readymade product you’re used to pull off the shelves in the super market. Instead you work with the spirit as a back bone and add other ingredients to enhance its qualities and find intriguing synergies of flavor. This is the reason why classics are often preferred by bartenders, connoisseurs and seasoned cocktail enthusiasts.
