Captain Ron, adapted by John Henderson, is supposed to be served at room temperature making it ideal to store in a flask and enjoy even when there is not a fridge or ice around.
We served the drink in a huge Cognac coupe to really get the feeling of an ocean. Better anchor the cocktail tightly before the first sip!
If this truly is the center of the galaxy, it’s indeed a nice place to be!
The Back to Basics cocktail by Irene Benjamin is really nice. The red wine and orange syrup contributes with flavour of mulled wine, and the orange in it means there is also a certain bitterness in the background.
We decided to call this original cocktail The Invisible Skier. It’s a milk cocktail gone vegan as we used almond milk as the base.
The Roman Holiday might not sound like a winter cocktail, but look close in the ingredients list and you’ll see the chili liqueur. And when this spicy spirit is combined with Cognac, rum and orange juice it actually feels like winter.
We like how balanced this cocktail is. It’s many different flavours compliment each other and create a boozy and stiff cocktail, that’s still so easy and enjoyable to sip.
This is a Mots de Caraïbes by rum enthusiast Brian Di Maggio. It’s a clever recipe, made up by equal parts of some high quality ingredients.
This recipe is another on from Death & Co. It’s truly the book that just keeps delivering!
There’s just something with fresh basil in cocktails. It’s herbal and earthy, and it adds a wonderful pale green colour when muddled with clear spirits like in this one.
The Dark and Stormy is normally made with rum (the dark) and ginger beer (the stormy). In Death & Co’s recipe the ginger beer is rather substituted with ginger syrup and club soda. It’s quite clever as this allows for individual decisions on how ginger-intense you want to go, and how much sparkles you want.
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!
