FAQ's

PREPARATION_TECHNIQUES

Why is The Undecided stirred and not shaken?

The Undecided is stirred rather than shaken to ensure a smooth texture and maintain clarity in the drink. Stirring gently combines the ingredients without introducing too much air or ice particles into the mixture, which is particularly important for cocktails with clear liquors like gin and blue curaçao to preserve their elegant appearance.

SERVING_SUGGESTIONS

What type of glass is best suited for serving The Undecided, and why?

A whisky glass is recommended for serving The Undecided. This choice enhances the aesthetics of the cocktail and provides a comfortable grip for sipping. The wide opening of the whisky glass also allows the aromas of the ingredients to be appreciated more fully, enhancing the overall drinking experience.

ALCOHOL_CONTENT_COMPARISON

How does the alcohol content of The Undecided compare to a standard gin martini?

The Undecided has an alcohol content of 21.11%, which is slightly lower than a standard gin martini, which typically ranges around 30% ABV. This difference is due to the addition of non-alcoholic ingredients like cranberry and lemon juice, which dilutes the alcohol concentration while adding volume to the drink.

INGREDIENT_SUBSTITUTIONS

Can I substitute another liqueur for blue curaçao in The Undecided?

Yes, you can substitute another liqueur for blue curaçao if you wish to experiment with different flavors or colors. Triple sec or orange liqueur can be used for a similar citrus profile without the blue color. For a different taste with a visual twist, try using a raspberry or blackberry liqueur, noting that this will change the final color and flavor profile of the cocktail.

OCCASION_SUITABILITY

What occasions are best suited for serving The Undecided?

The Undecided, with its unique blend of flavors and striking appearance, is perfect for occasions that call for a creative and sophisticated touch. It's well-suited for cocktail parties, celebratory events, or as a vibrant addition to a summer gathering. Its refreshing and bold character makes it a conversation starter, especially in settings that appreciate inventive mixology.
