If you’re staying home and missing cocktail bars as much as we are… then perhaps it’s time to learn a few new tricks that you can try at home?  Here are four cocktails you can make yourself this weekend.

We spoke to Jacob from the iconic cocktail business Liquid Infusion, and he taught us some delectable cocktail recipes beyond your mojito and espressotini repertoire!

If you’re in need of some equipment, they offer “free cocktail equipment consult at the St Kilda venue Ellora, its staffed everyday till 8pm and they have everything you need right there, parking is easy and they also have a bottle store” so you can go home and practice together.

Want to try making your own creations?

if you’re making your own cocktail concoctions, Jacob recommends to “always think about your taste, sour or sweet or a good balance of both, stick to measures so you have a great tasting drink”. If you want to ensure it’s a beautifully finished, having the right glassware and beautiful garnishes are important touches. If you’re not sure what to use as a garnish, Jacob suggests using “anything you can eat and is fresh! Flowers, orange, the sky is the limit, edible gold even”.
