Bartenders Build Cocktails From Scratch Using The Golden Ratio

Bartending, a fine art, has a version of the golden ratio, a formula that ensures that all cocktails are crafted using an ideal balance of flavors.

This formula is expressed as 2:1:1, with the first number representing the base liquor and the second and third numbers referring to sweet and sour flavors, respectively.

The ancestral home of the modern cocktail, India invented the punch, a drink that provided the first known use of a recipe similar to what would be known as the golden ratio.

Nearly all contemporary cocktails adhere to the 2:1:1 formula. The golden ratio seamlessly blends diverse ingredients, resulting in iconic cocktails.
