Details of how to make a cool honey lemon cocktail
Step 1: Prepare the ingredients
To create a delicious honey lemon cocktail, the first thing you have to do is thin the outer yellow lemon peel into small fibers. One thing to note is that you should be gentle during the peeling process, this will help not to break the white skin on the inside of the lemon.
Step 2: Boil water
The next step is to prepare a very clean pot so that the finished product is free of residue and the taste is not affected. Then you add the remaining ingredients, including cinnamon, cloves, dried cranberries, mixed with Le Vista red wine and chopped lemon zest, into the pot and boil this mixture on low heat.
When you see the wine boils and ripples, turn off the stove immediately. Note, at this step you absolutely do not let the heat be too high or cook for too long on the stove for the wine to boil because this will lose the distinctive flavor of the wine and evaporate.
Step 3: Finish and enjoy
You use a filter to remove all the residue so that the color of the wine is clearer and more beautiful. When enjoying, you just need to pour the wine mixture into a glass and then add a little honey to it.
Then, for the flavor to blend well, use a clean wooden spoon to stir. Note that you should use a moderate amount of honey and match the amount of alcohol to avoid it being too sweet.
For decoration, you can add some mint leaves or cinnamon sticks to the top, ensuring your cocktail will look more eye-catching and seductive.
So you have completed a honey lemon cocktail that is not only delicious and refreshing but also good for health with just a few simple steps. Don’t hesitate to enjoy the fruits and treat your family and friends.
Some facts about honey lemon cocktail
Cooking temperature is very important to determine the quality of the finished cocktail, because if the temperature is too high, it will destroy the esters in the wine, so the alcohol easily evaporates, leading to the loss of aroma and characteristic flavor of the wine.
The ideal temperature is in the range of 20 – 30 degrees Celsius. Use a specialized thermometer to accurately measure the temperature in the pot.
In addition, the honey lemon cocktail is not only delicious, but it also has health benefits:
