Cocktail Lexicon - Lifestyle

The term "lifestyle" denotes a certain attitude towards life that is characterized by certain attributes. As an image for a relaxed lifestyle, for example, one could visualize a deck chair on a palm tree beach in which a sexy-looking lady is lying. On the table next to her is a cool-looking drink with a slice of lime on the rim of the glass. This image has an immediate appetizing effect in several respects. One would like to swap places with this beautiful lady or at least be allowed to flirt with her. The seduction in this picture is of course achieved by many photographic and compositional components - but the actual relaxation factor lies neither in the beautiful lady nor in the drink -but in what they are supposed to symbolize. The real statement of the picture is: Here someone has time, the necessary ambience and enough leisure to enjoy all that exists around him.

You can prepare such drinks at home just as easily as you can enjoy them in a hotel bar or at a reception.
