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.

Beautiful drinks cabinet

This weekend we are guests at a dinner party. The hosts have a beautiful drinks cabinet. Its content could produce a classic "French 75" without a problem.

To make one, just shake...

Pharmarium – Stockholm

At Pharmarium in Stockholm they make this cocktail called "Imaginarium". It's a vodka and amaro based drink with violet pearls served on a spoon in the middle of the drink. It's one of those instant hit cocktails you get to sample every now...

Le Lion – Hamburg

Time to try another award winning bar. On Bar Le Lion in Hamburg is ranked #19. The bar has been on the list for many years - completely understandable in our opinion.

It's been an exciting day as we were finally able to visit's top ranked #1 bar Artesian. So the big question is to be answered; is this truly the best bar in the world?


Enter through the hotel

Slightly surprising,...
