After years of failed experimenting and pre-drinking, there comes a time in every young person’s life when they finally learn how to make the perfect cocktail while sober. Not only is the achievement a rite of passage on the path to full adulthood, it’s a feat of restraint and refinement that screams, “Yes, I can enjoy a nice glass of alcohol without downing five other afterwards.”
It’ll also be the reason why you’ll ask your future spouse for mini-bar when you finally get around to finishing your basement. (You got to show off your skills somehow, right?)
Thanks to YouTube user HowToBasic, this rite of passage may be even closer than you think. The YouTube guru was nice enough to share a party favourite cocktail.
After you have finally mastered the art of bartending, make sure to take a look at HowToBasic’s other helpful tips on how to make sushi and how to change a nappy!
Warning: Too much fun may get you kicked out of any good party and a scolding from aforementioned future spouse.
Martinis taste so much better when the production value is as high/higher than Tom Cruise a la Cocktail. For example, I prefer my martinis shaken not stirred and BTW I also want an entire four minute juggling performance choreographed to Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit.”
This Ukrainian dudes name is Alexander Shtifanov and he appeared on Ukraine’s Got Talent this year. All I can say is, he’s got to earn some big tips. Then again, if you’re really hankering for a quick martini you might be thinking “sorry, I ordered my drink three minutes ago.”
