MxMo: See You on the Flipside

Looking back at my archives I’m slightly shocked to find I last took part in Mixology Monday over a year ago in June 2009. 2010 was something of a fallow year for Oh Gosh! but I’m hoping to change that in 2011 and what better way to start than with the first Mixology Monday of [...]

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…

69 Colebrooke Row – Part III

69 Colebrooke Row – Part III

In our last visit to 69 Colebrooke Row Tony Conigliaro shakes up a Somerset Sour. An ode to West Country cider, the cocktail uses brandy distilled from cider apples, and a float of traditional English cider. Rounding off the apple theme is a vacuum-cooked apple slice infused with the essence of hay, for the true Somerset experience.
