FAQ's

ORIGINS_HISTORY

What is the origin of the Tia Mia cocktail?

The Tia Mia cocktail is a modern creation that takes inspiration from classic tiki drinks. It blends the smoky flavors of mezcal with the tropical notes of rum and the sweetness of orgeat syrup, creating a unique twist on traditional tiki cocktails. Its exact origins are a bit murky, but it's known to have been popularized in cocktail bars seeking to innovate on classic recipes.

INGREDIENT_SUBSTITUTIONS

Can I substitute a different type of rum or mezcal in the Tia Mia?

Yes, you can substitute different types of rum or mezcal in the Tia Mia, although it may alter the flavor profile of the cocktail. Using a different type of Jamaican rum or a smokey mezcal can either enhance or soften the cocktail's smoky and tropical characteristics. It's suggested to stick with high-quality spirits to maintain the balance and depth of the original recipe.

INGREDIENT_SUBSTITUTIONS

What is orgeat syrup and is there a substitute I can use?

Orgeat syrup is a sweet syrup made from almonds, sugar, and rose water or orange flower water, lending a distinct nutty and floral flavor to cocktails. If you're unable to find orgeat syrup, you can substitute it with almond syrup, though the latter might be slightly less complex in flavor. Homemade orgeat can also be made for a more authentic taste.

SERVING_SUGGESTIONS

How should I serve the Tia Mia to best enjoy its flavor?

The Tia Mia should be served in a lowball glass, ideally chilled to enhance its flavors. While the cocktail is not traditionally shaken or stirred, it's important to properly mix the ingredients with ice before straining into the serving glass. Garnishing with a lime wheel or a sprig of mint can also add to the visual appeal and aromatic experience of the drink.

FAQ

Is the Tia Mia suitable for those who prefer less alcoholic cocktails?

With an alcohol content of 21.72%, the Tia Mia is relatively strong compared to other cocktails. For those preferring a less alcoholic drink, you can adjust the proportions of the spirits downwards and increase the non-alcoholic components like lime juice or sugar syrup. However, doing so will alter the original flavor profile, making it lighter and possibly sweeter.
