It is the basis of cocktails such as Bloody Mary, Cosmopolitan and Screwdriver. Gin is made from white grain and flavored with juniper berries predominantly. It is the main ingredient of original martini. Rum is prepared by fermenting and distilling sugar cane products. They are aged in oak and barrels to create a golden color. Light rums are used to create cocktails. Dark rums went through a slower process developing a stronger taste and are usually drunk on the rocks or neat. Tequila is primarily produced from agave plant and the main ingredient in Margarita. Those with added sugars used in the fermentation process are called Mixtos.
