Eeyore’s Requiem Cocktail

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,...

Applewood Negroni

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...

Lucien Gaudin cocktail

Lucien Gaudin cocktail

This is a classic cocktail, and the recipe is widely available. We found ours in favorite cocktail book Vintage Spirits and Forgotten Cocktails by Ted Haigh. The cocktail is named after a fencer who received gold metals in the 1924 and 1928 olympic games. There are...

Alaska

Alaska

But while it’s easy to make, it’s still a surprisingly complex cocktail tastewise. The Chartreuse on its own is so full of flavour, and when it is combined with the semi sweet old Tom gin and the bitters a snow angel is indeed born.

Yuzu cocktail

Yuzu cocktail

Yuzu is an asian citrus fruit, in the middle of a lime and a mandarin. Its juice is very fresh and fruity, and the zest is amazing in both food and cocktail. This awesome fruit is however still relatively hard to get in stores in Europe. Hopefully this is about to...

Hotel Room Mix – Kullamust & Gin

Hotel Room Mix – Kullamust & Gin

In between bar visits in Malmö (Sweden's third city) we wanted to do a cocktail of our own at our hotel room. In the mini bar was a locally produced juice - Kullamust - made of apples, raspberry and mint. Extra nice that there was no added sugar to this juice. We also...

Modern Manners

Modern Manners

We finally bought a bottle of drambuie and were excited to try it in a cocktail. On the drambuie webpage we found a cocktail called Modern Manners and decided to give it a go. Extra nice was the fact that this recipe also contains kirschwasser, a cherry eau-de-vie,...

Hanky Panky Cocktail

Hanky Panky Cocktail

The Hanky Panky is a classical cocktail. It only uses three ingredients, so pick the brands carefully, it's nice to use high quality spirits here. It's also a little bit funny there is an underwear brand actually called Hanky Panky. They make underwear in lace, in all...

White Lady

White Lady

The White Lady is one of those instant great drinks. Made with only three of the most common ingredients in a bar, basically anyone should be able to shake up a White Lady. As usual with this few-ingredients-type-of-cocktail, it's extra nice to use high quality...

Arsenic & Old Lace

Arsenic & Old Lace

Found a dussin of recipes online for cocktails with Pasts. This is "Arsenic & Old Lace". Pastis is very dominant and tend to take over when in cocktails. This is what also happened to us with this cocktail.  The taste divides us between okay to undrinkable. One...

The Abbey Cocktail

The Abbey Cocktail

With The Abbey Cocktail we once again revisiting the 1930 cocktail book by Harry Carddock "The Savoy Cocktail Book" for inspiration. We generally don't like orange juice in cocktails as it often takes over but here we'll give it a try. The original recipe says: 1/2...

Book: Death & Co

Book: Death & Co

Death & Co by David Kaplan, Nick Fauchald and Alex Day is obviously the book with recipes from the corresponding bar in New York. While we have yet to visit this bar, several of the recipes we've already tried at home. And this is big book! There are several...
