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, [...]

Dutch East Indies Daisy

September 8th, 2009

Dutch East Indies Daisy

Until recently I had written off Batavia Arrack as an odd tasting spirit with little potential for use in cocktails. However on a visit to The Connaught Bar bartender Erik Lorincz served me the Dutch East Indies Daisy, a cocktail which caused me to take another look at this unusual Indonesian spirit.

Le Martini Dijonnais

September 2nd, 2009

Le Martini Dijonnais

Liqueurs come in all manner of weird and wonderful flavours. From orange liqueurs to crème de menthe there aren’t many tastes you can’t find in alcoholic form from someone. I thought I’d seen it all, until I received a bottle of mustard liqueur…

The Laphroaig Project

August 19th, 2009

The Laphroaig Project

Sometimes a cocktail recipe is so intriguing you can’t help but mix one up. Sometimes a cocktail recipe is so bizarre you’re frightened to even put the ingredients together in case the mixture results in some horrifying science-fiction-esque accident might occur. The Laphroaig Project is both of these.

Ransom Old Tom

Ransom Old Tom

One of the things I love about travelling is the chance to get hold of rare and exotic ingredients, and top of my list when I headed over the the US for Tales of the Cocktail last month was Ransom Old Tom. But was it worth the effort?

MxMO – Ginger

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.

Signet Padovani

June 5th, 2009

Signet Padovani

A few months ago I visited Le Lion, a small bar in Hamburg, Germany. Without doubt one of the most memorable drinks I had there was the Padovani, a simple mixture of St. German and Scotch whisky that is made superlative by a rather expensive ingredient – Glemorangie Signet.

MxMO – Amaro

May 18th, 2009

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.

Mint Julep

May 2nd, 2009

Mint Julep

As a Brit the Kentucky Derby doesn’t interest me a great deal, but its signature drink the Mint Julep certainly does. This delicious drink is perfect for a hot summer day, and I’ve recently learned of a great addition to the drink that makes it even more perfect – Fernet Branca.

MxMO – Superior Twists

April 13th, 2009

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.

Bywater

March 20th, 2009

Bywater

Without doubt my favourite bar in New Orleans is Arnoud’s French 75 Bar. Last year after Tales of the Cocktail I enjoyed many superb drinks there made by bartender Chris Hannah. After trying his Bywater Cocktail there I set about trying to recreate it at home, and eight months later have finally managed it.

Citadelle Réserve

March 15th, 2009

Citadelle Réserve

One type of gin that, until recently, has been fairly overlooked is yellow gin, where the sprit has been aged in barrels generally for a relatively short period of time when compared to other aged spirits. Citadelle aims to change this with Citadelle Réserve, a dry gin that is aged in oak for six months.
