Have you ever wondered what goes into creating a perfect cocktail? What sort of chemistry is behind the bar and how do bartenders have such an extensive knowledge of spirits and their flavours? ‘Molecular Mixology’ explores this world of mixology and the science that goes into it. –
Cocktail making has evolved from just mixing spirits with soda water or mixer to create a new concoction under the name of ‘cocktail’. It has become more about getting your technique right, mixing your own syrups, juices, and other ingredients to get just the right balance in taste, aroma and appearance for your drink.
Instead of simply pouring in readymade grenadine syrup or strawberry syrup from a bottle, today’s mixologist makes their own syrups from scratch using chemistry and molecular gastronomy techniques.
