FAQ's

PREPARATION_TECHNIQUES

How should the ingredients for Save Yourself! be combined?

To prepare the Save Yourself! cocktail, start by pouring 60ml of whiskey into a pint glass, followed by 30ml of blackcurrant cordial. Gently stir to combine. Then, slowly add 275ml of cider and 275ml of lager to maintain a good mixture without agitating the carbonation too much. Ensure the ingredients are well mixed but not shaken, as the cocktail is best enjoyed when the carbonation is preserved.

SERVING_SUGGESTIONS

What is the best way to serve Save Yourself!?

The ideal way to serve Save Yourself! is in a pint glass, as specified in its preparation details. Make sure the cocktail is served cold to enhance its flavors and the refreshing quality of the cider and lager. No additional ice is needed unless the ingredients are not pre-chilled, in which case a couple of ice cubes could be added to cool the drink without diluting it too much.

ALCOHOL_CONTENT_COMPARISON

How does the alcohol content in Save Yourself! compare to other popular cocktails?

Save Yourself! has an alcohol content of 8.05%, which places it on the higher end compared to many classic cocktails. For example, a Margarita typically has an alcohol content around 12-17% depending on the recipe, while a Mojito has about 10%. Thus, Save Yourself! offers a moderately strong option, making it a suitable choice for those who prefer a cocktail that's less potent than hard liquors but stronger than light beers.

CUSTOMIZATION_IDEAS

Can I customize the Save Yourself! cocktail to make it sweeter or less sweet?

Yes, the sweetness level of Save Yourself! can be easily adjusted to suit individual taste preferences. To make the cocktail sweeter, consider adding more blackcurrant cordial or opting for a sweeter variety of cider. For a less sweet version, reduce the amount of blackcurrant cordial or choose a dryer cider. Additionally, experimenting with different varieties of whiskey can also alter the overall flavor profile, balancing the sweetness according to your liking.

DIETARY_CONSIDERATIONS

Are there any common dietary concerns with the ingredients used in Save Yourself!?

The main dietary concerns for Save Yourself! involve gluten and potential allergens. Given that both cider and lager are derived from grains, they commonly contain gluten, which might not be suitable for individuals with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity. Moreover, some individuals might be allergic to specific components used in whiskey or blackcurrant cordial. It's important for those with dietary restrictions to check the specific products used for any allergens or to look for gluten-free alternatives for the cider and lager.
