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 different base...

Remember the Maine

This is a cocktail for lovers of rye. We are using Bulleit's rye, it's high on character and even the bottle itself looks good! In Remember the Maine the rye is mixed with a couple of peculiar ingredients. First of all, absint, an almost mysterious spirit adding licorice flavor to the...

Matcha Sour Cocktail

We bought a tiny jar of matcha green tea powder in London.

Matcha is actually quite expensive, but a little goes a long way. Less than a teaspoon creates an intensely green cocktail, making it look more of a potion. However, the tea taste is nowhere near as intense as...

Paper Plane – abano variation

The Paper Plane is made with equal parts bourbon, aperol, amaro and lemon juice. It's a bittersweet cocktail with both freshness (from the lemon) and depth (from the amaro and bourbon).

We like bitter cocktails, so the Paper Plane is definitely for us. If you're uncertain about if you fancy bitter...

Sazerac

Today we mixed a favorite of ours, Sazerac. Simple, but complex with a long history. It was invented in the late 1800s in New Orleans and contained cognac and bitter. Since 2008 the Sazerac is the official cocktail of New Orleans and modern recipes often contain whiskey. It also gets a fantastic...

Whiskey Sour

 

Whiskey Sour is a common drink, available at basically every bar all over the world. But that fact doesn't make this cocktail less interesting. The combination of the strong whiskey, the lemon juice and the simple syrup to balance everything is mouthwatering.

Angels Share

Sometimes crazy is good like "Angels Share", it could also be great. Looking in "Bartenders manual" in Swedish by Mathin Lundgren we found the most strange Manhattan. Combine bourbon with amaro and créme de cassis. Unexpected, yes, but it was quite exciting. You should try everything once, for this there might...

New York Daisy

New York Daisy is from the Swedish bar book "Bartenders  Manual" by Mathin Lundgren and mixes rye with lime and grenadine and finishes off with soda water. We don't usually make long drinks and was looking for something fruity and not too sweet. This tasted really good, dry and fresh.

Vintage Spirits & Forgotten Cocktails

One of our cocktail books taken out most often is Vintage Spirits & Forgotten Cocktails by Ted Haigh. This book is a treasure cove for fans of the American 1920's cocktail era. Most recipes in the book are very valid also today, and ingredients are surprisingly available. There is a lot...
