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.

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.
