Park Liquors - Massapequa Park NY 11762
- A chaser is just like it sounds...it's a drink that is used to chase down the alcohol after taking a shot. The chaser is a mixer of some sort that is usually non alcoholic however the term originates from the old bartender lingo "a shot and a beer" meaning take a shot of whiskey and follow it by a beer.
- A cocktail is a mixture of spirits, something sweet, and usually a garnish. Most cocktails are served before dinner and consist of a base of liquor, an accent such as triple sec or wine, a sweetener such as juice or syrup, and finished off with a garnish such as a lemon or a lime wedge.
- The Cooler is typically a drink that is served with ginger ale, club soda, or some other type of carbonated beverage. The cooler should have a lemon or orange garnish and the rest is up to the bartender. There are hundreds of different types of cooler style drinks that can be made using the base of a carbonated beverage and a citrus rind.
- Serving up a drink with lots of ice and club soda in a tall glass constitutes a highball. While you may use any carbonated beverage and the ice with the spirits, the addition of any other type of beverage such as a sweetener or a garnish will make the drink no longer considered a highball!
- A jigger is a bartending tool used to measure liquor.
It is usually 1.5 fluid ounce (44 mL), however bar jiggers come in other sizes and may not actually measure a fluid jigger.
- The lowball consists of spirits on ice which is better known as on-the-rocks! No other additions here, just the liquor and the ice to keep it chilled.
- The neat drink is a straight shot of liquor without anything else.
- While the on-the-rocks is also known as a lowball this drink consists of liquor poured over ice (hence the on-the-rocks term). The drink is served in a shallow or short glass such as an old fashioned glass.
- Shot Glass
- A shot glass is a small glass to hold or
measure a "Shot" of liquor,
which is either drunk straight
from the glass ("a shot") or poured into a cocktail.
A "shot" of liquor is not the same as a "shooter."
A shot is generally 1 1/2 ounces, but can vary
- The shooter is one of the most common drinks in any bar. Otherwise known as a neat drink, the shooter is just a shot of liquor served up in a glass. Many bartenders love to make shooters because they are so simple...can't screw this one up, all you have to do is pour some liquor into a glass and serve it up!
- The sour is served with lemon or lime juice, sugar and spirits of choice. It's a small drink usually a shot or served in a small glass such as an old fashioned glass.
- A tot is just the bartender lingo for a small drink. Not quite a shot
