Amsterdam & door 74

Perhaps most famous for certain other intoxicating substances, Amsterdam has a small but growing cocktail scene. The latest bar is door 74, a small pseudo-speakeasy hidden away on a busy street close to Rembrandt Square. Join Jay at door 74 for a Super-Dry Martini Doble made by our esteemed host, Mr Philip Duff.

Ranglum

While I love exploring old cocktail recipe books and trying out new drinks that catch my eye, sometimes I find myself wanting to try a new drink without the risk of running in to a dud recipe.

Programming resumes

Last year whilst at Tales of the Cocktail and Bar Convent Berlin I regularly found myself at events, sessions and bars that I wanted to write about, but knew would be very difficult to do so without turning in to a seven year old writing about their holiday: I did this, and then I did that, and then this happened, and, and, and. Photos, too, could only tell part of the story – it was clear what I really needed was video…
