When people first learn I have a passion for mixology they often ask me what my favourite cocktail is, a question I’m never quite sure how to answer. On certain evenings though, under certain circumstances, I do have a temporary favourite. Tonight that drink is a Manhattan variation that for one day at least, is my favourite cocktail.

RotLC – Apricot Brandy

The third round of Raiders of the Lost Cocktail, the semi-regular event that aims to find lost cocktails made with forgotten ingredients, draws to a close tomorrow.

Blackberries must be in season somewhere in the world right now, as the supermarkets are currently packed with them at pretty reasonable prices.

Cachaça

A busy weekend in London flat-hunting has meant I haven’t had much time to dedicate to cocktails, so my drink of choice has been a simple, but very tasty, Brazilian drink, the Caipirinha. The drink makes use of Cachaça (pronounced ka-sha-sa), the most popular spirit in Brazil which the average Brazilian drinks three gallons of [...]

Oh Gosh!

Oh Gosh!

I thought I had better explain exactly why I named this site “Oh Gosh!”, and at the same time give myself an excuse to make one of my favourite summer cocktails…

The “Oh Gosh!” is a little-known cocktail created by Tony Conigliaro at the now defunt Isola bar in Knightsbridge, London. According to Difford’s Guide to [...]
