Add ice to your highball glass
Just before you start to make a Grateful Dead drink, you should grab a nice and presentable highball glass. Open your freezer and take out an ice cube tray. Check if the cubes are properly frozen and are ideal for your drink. Take a couple of ice cubes out of the tray and put them in the highball glass before you place the tray back in the freezer once again.
Add ingredients to the cocktail shaker
You should now put the gin, vodka, Chambord liqueur, tequila and light rum in your cocktail shaker, add in a couple of ice cubes, and shake the shaker, to ensure that the liquids are thoroughly mixed.
Having shaken the required quantity of ingredients in the cocktail shaker, you should now strain them into the highball glass slowly. While straining, you should be careful in order to avoid spilling the drink.
Your drink is now ready to be consumed. If you are going to serve it to a guest, you can make it more presentable by adding a strip of lemon rind to the rim of the highball glass.
