Köln – Part I

This year prior to arriving in Berlin for BCB I made a short detour to Cologne, a city I was eager to visit after hearing so many good things about its bars. On my first night I visited two bars – Al Salam and Shepheard.

Heaven’s Dog – Part I

Join Jackie Patterson at Heaven’s Dog in San Francisco and enjoy one of her original creations, the Fleet Street. Based on the classic Champs-Élysées cocktail, it replaces Cognac with gin and makes great use of The Bitter Truth Celery bitters.

Gran Classico Bitters

Hello? Is this thing still on…? A busy schedule of work, rest, and play has left Oh Gosh! a little neglected over the past couple of months. I can only apologise for the lack of updates, but hope to remedy the situation this month. Starting with a traditional Italian bitters I came across recently…

Singapore Sling(s)

With many classic cocktails it’s difficult to find any information about it at all. The Singapore Sling, however, has an abundance of information and history written about it.

The English summer means the return of one of my favourite long drinks, the Pimm’s Cup. A firm favourite here, it may just be the perfect drink for a hot afternoon.

Connaught Bar

London is famous for its grand hotels, and names like Claridge’s and The Ritz are synonymous with five-star luxury. Almost as famous are the bars these hotels house, honey pots to the rich and famous and many, like the Savoy, with a historic link to the cocktail. In the first of a new series, I explore the hotel bars of London and see if their reputations are deserved.

The Original Aviation

August 15th, 2007

The Original Aviation

A recent darling of the cocktail world, the Aviation is a wonderful mix of gin, maraschino and lemon juice. Until recently that was as good as it got, but now with the availability of crème de violette we can make the original recipe, which provides the beautiful blue tint that perhaps earned this cocktail its name.

Margarita

Margarita

The Margarita may well be the most popular cocktail in the world, but it is also one of the most abused. Most bars feature it on their menu, but the chances of getting anything resembling a true Margarita are slim-to-none. Learn the right way to make the drink, and find out what you’ve been missing.
