TOTC 2015 – Events, Competitions and Tastings!

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 […]

The Satchmo Cocktail

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 […]

MIRACLE MILE BITTERS

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 […]

MIXING THROUGH GROG LOG 20 – Don´s own Planter´s

Time for a planter´s again! drink number 20 from Grog Log is Don`s own Planter´s. These are what i would call comfort drinks.

The history of the old Planter´s punch has been told many times and it´s not that long ago i did a post on it with eight different variations where Don`s own […]

So then tht […]

NEW ORLEANS COCKTAILS pt4 – THE MINT JULEP

Sip and dream..

The mint julep isn`t original to New Orleans though, but imported from the southern states where it was developed. Nevertheless it has become a very important New Orleanian Cocktail.

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

NAVAN – NATURAL VANILLA LIQUEUR

As a real vanilla geek i was happy to receive this vanilla liqueur – now i got a perfect excuse to indulge myself and everybody in vanilla flavored cocktails..

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 […]

FALL COCKTAILS

Its happening fast now, the fall is really storming in with sudden temp drops, strong winds, lots of cold rain mixed with sun, and a sudden color change on the leaves…which did inspire me to make these two fall cocktails.

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

THE MINT IS BACK! CELEBRATING THE MINT DAY

Yes really..the real mint is back, finally.

I have waited since the last vegetable markets closed down in the early fall. Since then i have had to live with those tiny under-light grown thin plants called mint – But its to me not real mint. Oh no..because real mint has much more […]
