FAQ's

ALCOHOL_CONTENT_COMPARISON

How does the alcohol content of Liquid Codeine compare to other common cocktails?

Liquid Codeine has an alcohol content of 36.5%, which is relatively high compared to many classic cocktails. For example, a Margarita typically has an alcohol content around 20%, depending on the recipe. This means Liquid Codeine is stronger and may have a more potent effect in smaller quantities.

PREPARATION_TECHNIQUES

Why is Liquid Codeine stirred and not shaken?

Liquid Codeine is stirred instead of shaken to prevent excessive dilution and to maintain the clarity of the drink. Stirring gently combines the Sambuca and Jagermeister, ensuring a smooth blend without introducing air bubbles or cloudiness that shaking might cause.

INGREDIENT_SPECIFICS

Can I use black Sambuca instead of white Sambuca for a Liquid Codeine?

Yes, you can use black Sambuca instead of white Sambuca for Liquid Codeine. Black Sambuca will give the cocktail a richer, more licorice-heavy flavor and a darker color, which could make for an interesting variation on the original recipe.

SERVING_SUGGESTIONS

What is the best way to serve Liquid Codeine for a party?

For a party, serve Liquid Codeine chilled in shot glasses. You could prepare a tray of these shots ahead of time and keep them in the refrigerator. Serving them cold enhances the flavors of both the Sambuca and Jagermeister, making for a refreshing, potent shot that guests can enjoy.

CUSTOMIZATION_IDEAS

What are some creative ways to customize a Liquid Codeine cocktail?

To customize a Liquid Codeine, consider adding a dash of cream or a creamy liqueur for a smoother texture and softer flavor profile. Another option is to add a few drops of a fruity syrup, like cherry or raspberry, to introduce a sweet and tart contrast to the herbal and licorice flavors of the drink.
