For the perfect salt rim, liquidize sea salt to make it finer, then run a lime wedge around the outside edge of the glass before dipping the rim in salt. Rimming only half the glass with salt gives the drinker the option of enjoying the cocktail with or without salt.
Great when made with freshly squeezed orange juice, this cocktail is very similar to the Buck's Fizz, which tends to have a higher proportion of Champagne. Also see the Grand Mimosa, basically the same drink charged with orange liqueur.
Grand Mimosa (Difford's)
As the name suggests, the orange of Grand Marnier heavily influences this drink. Basically a Mimosa or a Buck's Fizz (orange juice and champagne) with added oomph.

Few bartenders bother to shake this simple drink, instead they "build" by simply pouring ingredients into ice-filled glass and then briefly stirring to mix.
A layered version of the Seabreeze emerged and became popular in London during the 1990s.

The flavor of agave is king in this simple Margarita, made without the traditional orange liqueur.
Devil's Share (Difford's)
This cocktail is really smooth on the toungue because of the maple syrup. The citrus from the lemon and sugar from the maple syrup give a great sour flavor profile. One of my favorites, mostly because of the maple syrup.
Dopo Cena (Difford's)
Under the white head lies a dessert cocktail with aromatic cherry and marzipan flavours.
Hot Toddy with Cognac and Lemon (Difford's)
Warms the cockles with cognac and a good dose of citrus.
A really simple Mexican toddy. The agave nectar and tequila really give it a different flavor then you normal toddy.
