It`s fun at the Tales! so many tastings, so much to try and so many events and parties…..well you can only do so much…..and you will STILL be uber busy…. When I try to remember all the things that we did it all get`s a bit confusing, but here are as a sort of Tales […]
Well here`s something right up my alley…a twist of the Sazerac containing absinthe, gin and campari…
And not only that but it also uses a strong spicy bourbon while the classic Sazerac uses rye or cognac or both.
I`m a huge fan of the Sazerac – THE quintessential cocktail of New Orleans, or shall […]
During Tales there´s always some bitters going around and i now have five new bitters to play with and first out are 2 bitters from Miracle Miles – Chili-Chocolate and Yuzu.
Miracle Miles bitters are locally made artisanal bitters that started just over a year and a half ago. Louis Anderman – the maker […]

Without doubt, a good Mint Julep is a true Southern pleasure. On the first saturday in may is the Kentucky Derby Day […]

Navan is made by Grand Marnier and is made with natural ingredients and as we know vanilla isn`t the cheapest spice. The quality of Navan […]

I`m lucky to have a very beautiful walkway to my work along the shores with […]
