Customs Clearance

A glass sent from a new friend, from across the ocean – inspired us to create this cocktail.

Devil’s Barrel

This cocktail is very much in season now during autumn. The whisky base means it’s a boozy and dark drink, that you’d want to sip on slowly.

21st Century

A tequila version of a classic 21st Century. Developed by Jim Meehan.

Friûl Libar

An amaro cocktail, the Friûl Libar is an interesting one. Very delicious, and very graceful.

Jai Alai Special

Two whole limes, in one single cocktail? Yep, this is the Jai Alai Special.

Prince of Orange

In the Prince of Orange cocktail there is orange marmelade. An unusual but fun ingredient in a drink.


Saint Rosalie

When the team behind Porter's gin kindly asked us to try out their gin we knew we wanted to use it in a long drink. Saint Rosalie turned out to be a great fit.


Union Club

This cocktail is bittersweet like Campari based cocktails tend to be. It's simply a gorgeous drink.


Ticket to Paradise

In Ticket to Paradise Swedish punsch is paired with tequila and slow gin, giving the drink both colour and flavour.



The very potent mezcal is paired with distinct flavors such as coffee, grapefruit juice and allspice! But just like in tiki drinks "more is more".


Means of Preservation

We just think there's something very elegant with clear cocktails. It's like you cant't hide something, so the cocktail ends up looking very pure.


Brace Position

The Swedish cherries are here, and we wanted that to permeate this post. While not using the cherries in the actual cocktail they made a perfect side snack to be enjoyed together with the drink.
