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…

Sidecar

May 12th, 2007

Sidecar

The sour family of drinks contains many of the true classics like the Margarita, Daiquiri and of course the Sidecar. Allegedly invented during World War I, the drink has a simple recipe that belies its amazing flavour and complexity. If you like sours but want something a little more warming, the Sidecar may be for you.

Margarita

The Margarita may well be the most popular cocktail in the world, but it is also one of the most abused.

It’s Pimm’s O’Clock!

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. Pimm’s isn’t the only fruit cup around though, so how does it compare with the competition, and just what fruit and mixers should go in to the perfect Pimm’s cup?

What a load of Cobblers

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.

Corpse Revivers

January 5th, 2008

Corpse Revivers

Corpse Revivers are an old family of cocktails which were traditionally consumed as hairs of the dog – drinks to refresh you after a heavy night. Personally the idea of drinking even more alcohol when hung over sounds awful, but that doesn’t mean the cocktails aren’t tasty libations you can consume when not hung over.
