MxMo: See You on the Flipside

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 [...]

MxMO – Ginger

For Mixology Monday this month I take a look at the delicious Mr. Antoni, a cocktail based on the Penicillin from Sam Ross that uses the very special Paradyswijn Genever in place of Scotch whisky.

MxMO – Amaro

MxMO – Amaro

This month Mixology Monday features amaros – bitter liqueurs traditionally from Italy that are drank after dinner over ice. The Berlioni is a delicious Negroni variation that uses Cynar, an unusual amaro that is flavoured using artichoke lending it a distinct vegetal note.

MxMO – Superior Twists

MxMO – Superior Twists

For Mixology Monday this month we’re asked to look at superior twists. The Last Word is already an unusual, complex and delicious mixture, but Phil Ward’s Final Ward takes it one step further to make a truly superior twist.

MxMO – First Time

This month’s Mixology Monday asks us to consider first cocktails – approachable drinks for people who aren’t used to downing Martinis and Manhattans. This is an interesting subject for me as many of my friends don’t really drink cocktails, and trying to get them to like decent cocktails is a long, uphill battle I’ve been waging for several years.

Something oude, something new

Something oude, something new

The first Mixology Monday of this year looks towards New Horizons, and happily coincides with my visit to Amsterdam last weekend. Being in the land of genever and corenwijns I took the chance to explore this spirit I had previously paid little attention to and, now thoroughly sold on it, look forward to exploring more genever-based drinks.

MxMO – Spice

MxMO – Spice

Mixology Monday this month is on the theme of spice. Since first trying it last year Pimm’s Winter Cup has been a favourite spicy winter drink when warmed up and combined with apple juice and cinnamon. Here a comparison of Pimm’s Winter and Austin’s Winter Drink, plus the Winter Sidecar cocktail.

MxMO – Guilty Pleasures

MxMO – Guilty Pleasures

My “guilty pleasure” for this month’s Mixology Monday is a sickly-sweet mixture popular amongst students, hen parties and gentlemen who can’t catch. It’s pretty much the antithesis of the cocktails and the drink culture I usually write about, but sometimes, just sometimes, all that doesn’t really matter…

MxMO – 19th Century

MxMO – 19th Century

This month Mixology Monday looks back in time to 19th century cocktails, a topic already very familiar here on Oh Gosh!. After some searching around the classic cocktail books I settled upon The Delicious Sour, a mixture of applejack and peach liqueur taken from “The Only William” Schmidt’s 1892 book The Flowing Bowl.

MxMO – Local Flavour

MxMO – Local Flavour

For Mixology Monday this month we’re keeping things local with a look at the Gin and Tonic, an English classic invented in colonial India to help keep Malaria at bay in a tasty fashion. Made with Jensen gin and Fever Tree tonic water, nothing in the drink comes from more than twenty miles away. Well, except the lime…

MxMO – Bourbon

MxMO – Bourbon

Hosted by the guys at Scofflaw’s Den, this months Mixology Monday takes a look at Bourbon, one of my favourite spirits. Eager to find a new discovery I take a look at the Frisco Sour, an interesting mixture of Bourbon and Bénédictine that uses plenty of citrus resulting in a drink definitely deserving its sour name.

MxMO – Limit One

MxMO – Limit One

Mixology Monday this month looks at the incredibly strong drinks that some bars will only serve a guest one of to protect their sobriety. My drink is a delicious Old Fashioned cocktail made with barrel-proof George T. Stagg Bourbon and various bitters including The Bitter Truth Jerry Thomas’ Own Decanter bitters.
