FAQ's

PREPARATION_TECHNIQUES

How do you properly shake the 'On The Floor' cocktail?

To properly shake 'On The Floor', fill a shaker with ice and add 30ml of coffee liqueur and 30ml of whiskey. Secure the lid or shaker top and shake vigorously for about 15-20 seconds. This ensures the mixture is well-chilled and slightly diluted, enhancing its flavors.

SERVING_SUGGESTIONS

What is the best way to serve the 'On The Floor' cocktail?

The 'On The Floor' cocktail is best served in a cocktail glass. Consider chilling the glass beforehand to keep the cocktail cold longer. Strain the shaken mixture into the chilled glass to prevent any ice pieces from entering, maintaining the smooth texture of the drink.

How does the alcohol content in 'On The Floor' compare to other cocktails?

'On The Floor' has an alcohol content of 30%, which is relatively high compared to many classic cocktails that typically range from 15% to 25% alcohol by volume. It's closer to the strength of a neat spirit than a diluted cocktail, making it a stronger choice.

What type of coffee liqueur is best for the 'On The Floor' cocktail?
