Doctor Cocktail

Being Swedes, it's nice to sometimes do cocktails based on Swedish punsch. The Doctor is an equal-part-cocktail made also with gin and lemon juice, apart from punsch. We served the cocktail in glassware from Reijmyre, a Swedish glassworks company who have been...

Conference Cocktail

This is another nice cocktail from Death & Co's excellent book. The cocktail is made with a lot of ingredients, however all of them are common. It's still an unusual drink though, as it's made with both whiskey, calvados and cognac - hence combining two very...

Copa de Oro – variation

We asked for tips for more Cynar cocktails and Home Bar Girl came to rescue. Cynar is great to enjoy with only ice and soda but you can do so much more. To blend it with calvados is an excellent idea. On our Cynar road travel we tried to mix it with Aquavit in the...

Eeyore’s Requiem Cocktail

The Eeyore's Requiem Cocktail features an impressive lineup of ingredients. But in the end this is a Negroni variation where the gin is less dominant, and where rather cynar and fernet branca play the lead role. We added an orange zest twist in the finalized cocktail,...

Division Bell Cocktail

The recipe for the Division Bell is by Phil Ward and is found in Roberto Simonson's book A Proper Drink. This is a good mezcal initiation drink as the smokiness from the mezcal is very well balanced by sweetness from maraschino liqueur and fruitiness and bitterness...

Applewood Negroni

Can you smoke anything? Our answer is almost. A smoking gun is really cool to work with and we have previously smoked cod, tomato and popcorn. Hence the time was come to smoke our first cocktail! We wanted to try a cocktail that isn't smokey on its own (for example by...
