Know more about Brewed Cocktails

The world is going abuzz with the terms “cocktail brewing”. Mixologists are coming up with several types of brewing to offer one-better-than the other taste of cocktails. Several ingredients of the best quality are used in this process.

What is brewing? It is the process by which beer is made. A brewery is the building where beer is produced dedicatedly by a brewing company. When it is brewed home domestic use in home, it is called home brewing.

Beer is made when a starch is turned into a sugary substance called wort. The starch usually comes from malted barley. The actual beer is made from the fermentation of the wort as affected by yeast.

When starch is made into a sugary type of substance known as wort, beer is made. Affected by the yeast, the wort is fermented and then the actual beer is made. A process called mashing produces wort. Here the starch is mixed with hot water in a device known as a mash tun. The process of mashing requires around one- two hours. It is during this time that the starch gets converted to sugar. The sweet part of the wort is then drained off of the grains, and the grains themselves are washed in a process called sparging.

The next step which is followed is called wort separation. In this step, the spent grain is separated from the wort and sparge water. This can be separated through lautering, where the grain bed is used for the filter. There are several breweries which prefer to use filter frames, in order to get a more finely ground grist.

A device known as kettle or copper is used to keep the sweet wort that has been collected from the process. To evaporate away the water, the wort is boiled for around an hour. This leaves behind the sugars and other wort component materials. By this process, hygiene is also maintained by killing bacteria.

While boiling, hops can be added to the beer to draw out bitterness, aroma, and flavor. These hops can be added at any point during the boiling process, and can actually be added multiple times, depending on the recipe. The earlier that the hops are put into the boil, the more bitterness they will exude, but they will also become less distinct in taste.
The hopped wart is now ready to be made into beer. Before that however some brewers do like to put the substance through a small vac filled with hops, in order to add more hops flavor to the beverage, as well as to filter it.

Yeast is added to cause the wort to ferment, turning it into beer. The fermentation process can take anywhere from one week to years to complete depending on the process. As the beverage ferments, the yeast, as well as all stray particles in the beverage fall to the bottom, leaving the alcohol clear of impurities. In some cases the beer is taken through a second fermentation process when it requires a longer fermentation, or greater clarity.

The final product is packaged in either casks or barrels, or individual bottles or cans, and made ready for delivery through various distribution channels.

How about knowing about some brewing cocktail now?
Brewing Distil’s own spirits with spices, herbs and dehydrated fruits is an amazing way of preparing something heavenly. It is a process which adds incredible flavour but is a tedious one. It can take as long as four hours, which is very few mixologists do it.

Distil – Brewed Cocktail
The brewing begins with the spirits and other additives have to be brewed together in a copper distiller. After this, they become the base for the gently flavoured cocktails, each of which is presented with The Shaftesbury presentations.
The Shaftesbury mixologist says that the process is extremely complex and involved and he brew all the ingredients himself to assure that the quality is maintained. The integrity of the brand is important when you are pouring Absolut 100, Havana Club Selección de Maestros, Plymouth Gin, Olmeca Tequila and Chivas 18.

Some of the popular brewed cocktails are:
Gravity
Cold-infused Pu-erh 2006 vintage aged tea shaken with Absolut 100 brewed with vanilla tea, defused dehydrated lemon and wild honey, placed in a tea press with crushed dry ice, making the alcohol sparkle, the drink colder, and pulling the liquid up to the top chamber; shaken and served in a frosted martini glass garnished with dehydrated lemon peel.

Genie in a Bottle
What do you do with a genie in a bottle? You rub it! First we brew Havana Club Selección rum with cinnamon and cloves, then shake it three times counter-clockwise with spice liqueur and house-made apple pie syrup, add a touch of Cohiba cigar smoke, rub the cork out, and Presto! It is ready to be served with the aroma of Havana wafting through the air and a garnish of dehydrated pineapple.

Chef’s Negroni
Inspired by the multitalented chefs at The Dome, this culinary mixology masterpiece calls for Plymouth Gin brewed with Spanish saffron, Campari with macerated sage, and cold-infused sweet vermouth with cloves served in three separate mini bottles and a glass with frozen yin yang pebbles on a mini-wooden tea tray with orange incense burning underneath to arouse all senses.

The aristocratic Crabbies Scottish Ginger Beer has been brewed since the early 1800’s and enjoyed worldwide! Simple and refreshing, this cocktail can be premade in a pitcher and enjoyed during the warm days to come.

Apart from these, the sunny-bright cocktail, Weissen Sour, is quite popular. It has lemon juice, a white ale and bourbon orange marmalade. In fact, basically it is a whisky sour with beer.

El Matador, Black and Tan, Summer Hoedown, Honeydew Hefeweizen Smoothie, Hangman’s Blood, Beer’s Knees and Side walker are some other cocktails which make people go gag a over the taste.

The ingrained bubbles and array of flavours offered by beer, arrange the refreshment and versatility you always crave for.

London- The Perfect Anti-Depressant

Of all the major illness, whether it is mental or physical, depression has been one of the toughest to subdue. Depression has tragically claimed lives of many. Be it common people or celebrity, depression has swallowed maximum people.
According to the age old Greeks, spleen was the origin of depression. With the passage of time, some started blaming it devilish possession for an individual’s continuing melancholy. But today the actual reason is known to the doctors.

Depression begins and ends in your brain.
Noted doctors have observed that depression is a syndrome that possibly emerges from many different brain processes which differ among patients. If it is put simply, no two brains are exactly the ilk. The hidden reasons of depression differ from one person to another.

Mental health researchers have begun their journey of uncovering some of the most common brain traits and conditions shared by depression sufferers

The Emotion Connection
A noted doctor observed that patients suffering from depression often have escalations in activity in significant emotion-processing regions, when compared with people who are mentally healthy. Brain structures such as the amygdala light up more actively among depression sufferers. Other studies have connected an uptick in amygdala activity to states of sadness, anger and fear.

There are also researches which connect depression with the thalamus. It may be mentioned here that the thalamus is a part of your brain that helps manage your responses to sensory information. According to the research, the thalamus of the people suffering with certain kinds of depression might trigger their brains to produce unpleasant feelings in response to normal or benign external data.

Beyond the Blues
People mainly target on emotions when they are speaking about the blues. But, one’s ability to think, learn, and memorize also suffer as a result of depression. There are several researches going on all over the world. One such research has connected depression symptoms to a drop-off in a person’s ability to store new information. No surprise since mental health experts have known for a while that depression can boost your brain’s levels of stress hormones like cortisol, and studies have found that cortisol can damage or even shrink certain areas of your brain by stalling the production of new neurons and nerve connections.

It is interesting to note that Hippocampus, an area of the brain, which plays a significant role in learning and long-term memory, was found to be 9 to 13 percent smaller among women with a history of depression. Another research has found that brain “plasticity,” takes a backstage as a result of long-term depression. All of this could hurt your ability to learn and process new information.

The Long Term
Several research efforts have shown that people suffering from persisting depression evolve problems with setting priorities, planning and decision-making as well as enduring issues connected to memory and learning. Long-term depression has been linked to crippling brain conditions such as dementia and Alzheimer’s.

Different research attempts have been showed to aid depression patients stop or overcome the negative effects of their condition. New advancements in tracking the brain activity of sufferers could eventually help doctors better identify the best treatment programs for individual depression patients. But because of the syndrome’s complexity, depression is—at least for now—something that can be treated, not cured.

Doctors and medical researchers say that one of the most effective ways to deter depression is going on vacation. And when the question of vacation arises, what place can be better than the historically rich and at the same time ultra-modern vibrant city of London. A collage in itself of various characteristics, the capital city of London has lots to offer to its tourists. The Big Ben, London Eye, Buckingham Palace, Hyde Park, Madame Tussauds and Westminster Abbey are some of the several attractions which captivates the hearts and refreshes the mind.

A visit to these places not only gives a break from the daily routine but also refreshes the mind. Especially for people suffering from depression, refreshment is extremely important. Pampering oneself is also another significant way of overcoming temptation. Pampering oneself with luxury in the plush city of London will surely help someone suffering from depression. There are several luxury hotels in London offering varied services. But finding the one suitable for your requirement is important. It should also be borne in mind that London is one of the most expensive cities of the world. Thus finding the right kind of accommodation without paying like a king but enjoying like a king is a smart move.

The Shaftesbury Hotels in Central London is one of the best accommodations in London. Here, one can stay like a king without having a hole in his pocket. The hotel chain has several hotels under it, all located at strategic positions. Because of the convenient location, all the major attractions of the city are within close proximity of the hotels. The hotels are very well connected to the major airports, railways and bus terminals of the city. Thus travelling is not at all an issue.

The guest rooms are very comfortable and are well equipped with latest facilities and technologies. Meant for the ultimate comfort, each of these hotels are the perfect examples of lavishness and warmth. The hotel staff are very cordial. They are multi-lingual and thus one will have absolutely no problem in communicating with them.

From delectable and mouth watering food to amazing drinks, the restaurants of the hotels have it all. The breakfast is complimentary. Nothing can be better than the fresh and awesome tasty breakfast. One can have the best of assorted wine and tipple and spirit in the trendy and sleek bars of the hotels.

Affordable Family Holiday Offers in Delightful London

Nothing is better than a family holiday. For me, the best part about travelling with my family is that I will not need to explain to them through pictures and otherwise, whatever adventures underwent on the trip or which places I saw and how it really was being in that place. Of course going on a trip with friends is a different affair altogether and travelling alone teaches you a lot, but when you are on a trip with your family, you build some amazing memories which help strengthen the bond between you even more.

London is one of those few cities which offer a wholesome family holidaying experience. It has a lot to offer when it comes to shopping, which is ideal for my wife. My kids have always loved being to the museums and so have I, which is perfect because London has some of the best museums in the world like the Natural History Museum, British Museum and the entertaining Madam Tussauds’ Wax museum. Whenever I used to come to London on business tours, I used to love hanging out around Central London, where I fell in love with the quality and sheer variety of food.

During my business tours, I always used to stay at London Shaftesbury hotels. Over time I developed a nice relationship with them and so I decided it was the best place to take my family to. Moreover, London Shaftesbury hotels were offering nice family discounts and packages at that time at several of their establishments, so our timing was perfect.

I would suggest that if you are travelling with your family, do not compromise on comfort even one bit. Stick to the hotel which has the highest ratings amongst family hotels but if you are offered a nice discount or deal like an extended stay after 3 or 4 days or you are offered special privileges as a guest and access to lounges and other luxuries, you should consider because not only do these things can make your stay more comfortable, you will save some money and the kids will love the freebies and presents offered to them.
