The Italian Job

It’s a very visual cocktail, and it definitely tastes as good as it looks. The four ingredients are quite distinctive all on their own, so in one way it’s surprising how well they work together without one overpowering the other. But hey, isn’t this the magic of cocktails, how the sum can be bigger than it’s individual parts!

Off-White Negroni

Suze is a liqueur made on the roots of the gentian plant. This means it gets a bitter taste, but obviously in a good way. Normally you would be tempted to pair it with something sweet or acidic, but here it is rather paired with only Cocchi Americano and gin.

Grapefruit Old Fashioned

We’re almost half way through Old Fashioned Week and we are excited to contribute with this Grapefruit Old Fashioned. It’s a riff on the classic, with added flavours from grapefruit and tonic.

Red Viper

Mezcal is so good! We can’t get enough of that smokiness, that really comes through also in this cocktail. It’s a very sophisticated spirit that everyone definitely should try, especially tequila lovers.

Have At It

This cocktail was really enjoyable! Not very sweet, rather a bit dry from the sherry and a bit tart because of the gin and grapefruit. You could sip quite eagerly on it without getting too affected

Pomegranate Martini

Just like cranberry juice, pomegranate juice is a bit bristly on the tongue and it’s actually a pretty cool thing in this cocktail. It is not a sweet drink but rather a well balanced one with both acidity and fruit very present.
