The tropical wave continues, with fancy cocktails turning up in new iterations.

Unlike the regular pegs of rum, today’s upgraded versions are crafted with house-made syrups, fresh fruits and juices and garnishes that reflect the drink in it’s full glory.

Some bartenders are adding complexity with multiple spirits in one glass and we cannot get enough of the booze buzz!

So here are top 5 cocktails you can order to embrace the true spirit of the new year!

Long Island Iced-Tea

This cocktail never seems to go out of style. Popular amidst the millennials, this potent concoction of rum, tequila, vodka, gin and triple sec finished with a mixture of sweet and sour cola and lemon juice is the ultimate ‘tealicious’ drink. Tea isn't actually an addition to the drink but the ingredient used predominantly the cola, provides the profile of tea with much more flavour.

Pinacolada

This classic tropical cocktail has been winning hearts. More like a smoothie as opposed to a traditional alcoholic beverage, Pinacolada has a distinctive look and taste. The modest yet perfect blend of coconut milk, rum and pineapple juice has been a favourite throughout the years and is one of the most popular cocktails worldwide!

Margarita

This simple mixture of tequila, triple sec and lime juice is often blended with ice but is traditionally served on the rocks to jiggle your throat! The cocktail is generally presented in a salt rimmed glass topped with a slice of lime. Various fruity versions have been adapted from the traditional lime, such as raspberry, peach and strawberry and is a mass favourite beverage in parties.

Cosmopolitan

The sweet and tangy concoction of vodka, triple sec, lime juice and cranberry juice has managed to leapfrog the venerable Screwdriver as many vodka drinkers prefer the Cosmopolitan’s cleaner and slightly tart taste. The keys to the preparation of a Cosmopolitan are a good brand of cranberry juice and Cointreau Triple Sec.

Caprioska

Caprioska is a classic cocktail made with vodka and lime and this actually gets you groovy within 2-3 shots of it! Muddle the lime wedge releasing as much of the juice as you can to actually relish this refreshing nip!

Cocktails are the best refreshers when you want to enjoy a night out with your ladies or have plans for a cozy house party with your pals!These cocktails are super easy to blend as well so get the party started already!
