Thank you everyone who has cheered on us throughout the year, it’s been so much fun. Until next year, cheers and thanks!
Let us mix a Paris is Burning cocktail, created by the talented Leo Robitschek from Hotel Nomad in NYC. In the little black cocktail book from Nomad several of Leo’s creations are featured, but today the Paris is Burning seems most tempting to make as it captures everything we appreciate from a true craft cocktail;
We’re approaching Christmas quickly, and today we are making our first hot cocktail of the year. This is the Spicy Santa, a Cocktail Detour original, inspired by several other hot chocolate cocktails out there.
We created a Tonic Margarita. There is a noticeable difference between tequila and mezcal. The latter one has more of a smoky profile, not completely unlike a smoky whisky. It’s a really good cocktail ingredient which this particular drink proves.
We used honey from Sweden. And that’s one of the things we think is so awesome with cocktails. Ingredients from totally different parts of the world can be mixed into the same glass, and create something amazing.
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.
Unusual cocktail ingredients is always fun. In the Domo Arigato by Ran Duan there is sesame oil . . . and it’s paired with mezcal! Check out this awesome recipe.
Thanks to the Aperol this cocktail gets a very appealing orange/pink color. The taste however is more dominated by the smoky mezcal, a spirit that we love, so this is definitely our type of cocktail.
A fresh and slightly unusual cocktail. Perfect to sip outdoors.
