Featured Post Sidecar

May 12th, 2007

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.

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 [...]

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…

Exploring the Borough

Exploring the Borough

The Brooklyn is one of my favourite cocktails, and there are many great variations on the drink named after Brooklyn neighbourhoods. Vincenzo Errico’s Red Hook started the trend, and drinks inspired by the Red Hook like the Greenpoint and Bensonhurst soon followed.

Funkin’ For Jamaica

February 3rd, 2010

Funkin’ For Jamaica

One of the best products I sampled at Tales of the Cocktail last year was a new rum from Haus Alpenz. A traditional Jamaican rum with a flavour profile similar to that which was prevalent in the early 20th century, Smith & Cross isn’t exactly a sipper but does work wonderfully in drinks like the Montego Bay.

Geranium Gin

Gin is cool once more and a torrent of brands are rushing to take advantage of the renewed demand for the classic juniper elixir. It’s easy to loose track of all the new gins appearing at the moment but Geranium is one of a handful that really stand out above the noise.

Soixante Quinze

If you had to pick a drink that sums up Christmas and New Year Champagne wouldn’t be a bad choice. While a glass of Champagne on its own is nothing to complain about, sometimes something with a little more perk might be wished for. And when it comes to Champagne cocktails I think it’s hard to beat the French 75.
