Make me a Mojito!

Cuban-born, the Mojito was one of Ernest Hemingway’s favorite drinks. A mojito is a refreshing drink that has a tart, minty, citrus taste that’s backed up with a punch of rum. This drink is made to cool you down during those hot summer afternoons.

What you need:

  • 1 1/2 oz. rum
  • 2 tsp sugar (can be less)
  • 1/2 lime
  • 12 leaves or 3 sprigs of mint
  • Club Soda

Then, combine the sugar and mint in a tall glass. Add some juice from the lime and slightly crush the mint leaves. Add the rum and ice (ice should reach close to the top of the glass.) Add club soda and ENJOY!

Real men know how to party

how-to-have-a-great-handshake-5_fotor

Arrival: First thing, greet the host. If you came with a guest (spouse, girlfriend, bro) make sure you introduce them as well. If this is a birthday party for a child, take a minute to wish the kid a happy birthday when you first arrive.

 

bringtake

What did you bring?: If you brought a gift, drink, or dish, bring that straight to the host. If you were asked to bring something, you better bring it. The host is counting on you. Men fulfill their obligations.

 

landscape-1427926702-football-party-cleanup-de_fotor

Helping: Offer your assistance to the host “What can I do to help?” They will most likely not need your help but will appreciate the gesture.

Drinking: It’s okay to pop a beer open (or two) at a kids party, any more than that and you become “That Guy.” If this is a more casual get together, just don’t get too intoxicated.

 

Clean up: Unless you have to leave early, don’t bounce out as soon as the cleanup starts. Offer to help out again with pickup up. It doesn’t take long and you’d appreciate that if you were the host.

10 Ways to NOT be “that guy”

drunke

Don’t show up trashed. You’ll probably show up to the wrong party anyway.

giphy

Don’t get trashed. You’ll never be invited again.

clean

Don’t leave trash. Don’t be a pig. Men leave places better than they arrived.

giphy-1

Don’t show up “fashionably” late. A few minutes is fine, but showing up when the food is cold shows disrespect to the host.

spaghet

Never be first in line to eat. Women and children first. Don’t let your only impression on people be a selfish one.

giphy-2

Don’t curse a lot. Big turn off.

giphy-3

If there are kids around and no water nearby, keep your shirt on.

tenor

Don’t stick your fingers in the food. Most people don’t want your fingers in their mouth this is just as gross.

giphy-4

Don’t leave without saying “bye” to the host. They took time to invite you, be polite, and let them know when you leave.

giphy-5

Don’t complain about the party. This is a fast way to never get invited to any party again because you’re the guy who complains about them.

How to make a simple Martini

cocktail-995574_1920

Origin: This history of the martini is still blurry. Back in 1863, an Italian vermouth (fortified wine) maker started marketing their product under the brand name of Martini, after its director Alessandro Martini, and the brand name may be the source of the cocktail’s name.

What you need:

rum-653336_1920

2 ½ oz Gin

½ Dry Vermouth

Olives or a lemon twist for garnish.

Finally, some people, and most notably, James Bond prefer a shaken Martini over a stirred one. But, shaking the drink breakdowns the ice, which leads to a watered-down drink. Some dilution is good because it softens the spirits so you can taste the botanicals better, and not just the sting of the alcohol.
What’s your favorite way to make the iconic drink?

How to make a Gin and Tonic

gin-and-tonic-507439_1280

This popular drink was born in the 19th century from British soldiers who believed that it would counteract malaria during their stay in India. They believed that the quinine, the bitter ingredient in the tonic, was effective against the disease (it wasn’t), but that didn’t stop them from enjoying this simplistically elegant drink.
