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)

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 problem is much of it is so contradictory working out the actual history of the drink is rather difficult. With so many recipes around, which are worth making?

The Original Aviation

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.

What a load of Cobblers

Originally a drink that made use of two products very new to drinks of the eighteenth century – ice and straws – the Cobbler has undergone many iterations since the first recipes, changing base spirits and gaining ingredients. Here we look at three Cobblers from the original sherry-based recipe to a very modern interpretation.

Brooklyn

Brooklyn

During my trip to the States in July I sampled many a cocktail, but the Brooklyn really stood out amongst the others. A variation on the Manhattan that introduces Amer Picon and Maraschino to make things a little more interesting, I enjoyed it so much that while I only ever had one it has become the cocktail that reminds me most of my tours around the bars of New York.

Manhattan

August 21st, 2007

Manhattan

The Dry Martini and the Manhattan are the most famous of all classic cocktails. Most people, even if they have never experienced the joy of drinking one, will have at least heard their names in passing. As Robert Hess recently pointed out, despite first appearances the two drinks actually share a lot in common. Indeed, [...]
