FAQ's

INGREDIENT_SUBSTITUTIONS

Can I substitute the Black Vodka in Dragon’s Poison?

Yes, you can substitute Black Vodka with regular vodka if the color is not a priority, or use another dark-colored liquor such as coffee-flavored liqueur to maintain the dark aesthetic of the cocktail. Just keep in mind that changing the ingredients may slightly alter the taste.

PREPARATION_TECHNIQUES

Why is Dragon’s Poison stirred and not shaken?

Dragon’s Poison is stirred instead of shaken to gently mix the ingredients without diluting the drink too much. Stirring preserves the integrity of the dense flavors from the whiskey and Black Vodka, and it prevents the cola from becoming overly fizzy and losing its carbonation.

SERVING_SUGGESTIONS

What is the best way to serve Dragon’s Poison?

Dragon’s Poison is best served in a pitcher glass over ice. The large volume and presentation in a pitcher make it ideal for sharing with friends. You may also garnish it with a slice of orange or lemon to add a touch of citrus aroma, which complements the flavors.

ALCOHOL_CONTENT_COMPARISON

How does the alcohol content in Dragon’s Poison compare to other cocktails?

With an alcohol content of 3.79%, Dragon’s Poison is on the lower end of the spectrum compared to many classic cocktails which usually range from 10% to 30% alcohol by volume. This makes it a lighter option, suitable for occasions when you prefer a less potent beverage.

CUSTOMIZATION_IDEAS

What are some customization ideas for Dragon’s Poison?

To customize Dragon’s Poison, consider adding a splash of grenadine for a sweet and tart flavor or a few dashes of bitters for complexity. You could also experiment with different types of cola or add a flavored syrup like vanilla or cherry to enhance the cocktail according to personal preference.
