Featured Post Manhattan

August 21st, 2007

The Dry Martini and the Manhattan are the most famous of all classic cocktails. Most people, even if they have never experienced the joy of drinking one, will have at least heard their names in passing. As Robert Hess recently pointed out, despite first appearances the two drinks actually share a lot in common. Indeed, [...]

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 [...]

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.

Chocolat

January 5th, 2010

Chocolat

As something of a chocoholic I’ve always been disappointed in the quality of both the spirits and the cocktails available. However Austrian distiller promises to change this with a brand new spirit that provides all the flavour of chocolate with none of the sickliness – Mozart Dry

Soixante Quinze

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.

Hot Gin Punch

Hot Gin Punch

Winter is really beginning to set in here in England, with temperatures this week plunging to minus figures even in usually warmer central London, so my mind has been on winter warmers lately. Hot gin punch, to be precise…

A toast to Admiralsbar

A toast to Admiralsbar

After a number of set backs Admiralsbar in Berlin has finally opened. To celebrate the occasion I make a cocktail created by the bar manager Gonçalo de Sousa Monteiro – the Paperol.

This is starting to get silly…

This is starting to get silly…

Continuing the theme of bitters heavy drinks, I take a look at two cocktails from New York bartender Giuseppe Gonzalez that make use of frankly insane amounts of Angostura bitters to delicious effect. What better way to celebrate Angostura bitters going back in to production!

Martini Bitter

November 10th, 2009

Martini Bitter

More than a year after coming across a cocktail that called for the mysterious ingredient “Martini Bitter” I’ve finally tracked down a few bottles. But was it worth the wait, and how does Martini Bitter stack up to its more famous rival – Campari?

MxMO – Vermouth

MxMO – Vermouth

It’s been a little while since I last managed to take part in a Mixology Monday, so I’ve celebrated this months MxMO on vermouth by talking mainly about rum. However the cocktail contains vermouth, and more than makes up for it.

A nod and a Wink

September 17th, 2009

A nod and a Wink

After much procrastination, last week I finally made it down to new London bar 69 Colebrooke Row, headed by Tony Conigliaro. After enjoying a delicious Oh Gosh! made by its inventor, Tony served me the Wink – essentially a Gin Sazerac.
