How do I know if a cocktail is strong?

A strong cocktail typically contains a higher proportion of spirits relative to mixers and generally has an alcohol by volume (ABV) content above 15%.

What is the best way to drink a strong cocktail?

Strong cocktails are best enjoyed slowly, to savor the complex flavors and to avoid over-consumption.

Can I make a strong cocktail with less common spirits?

Yes, you can experiment with various spirits, but the chosen spirits should have a high alcohol content to maintain the strength of the cocktail.
