Here´s a real nice gin which i`ve had the pleasure of reviewing – the Old English Gin.
This Old English Gin is made from a 1783 recipe, distilling eleven botanicals in Angela, the oldest pot still being used in England today. And by using recycled bottles, organic sealing and silk printed labels, all as [...]
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 [...]
I love these two wonderful old classic New Orlean cocktails…The glory that was the Sazerac and the grandeur that was Ramos gin fizz in the old days had people from far away dreaming about the city where these magnificient cocktails were made.
And rightly so…
Both of these cocktails are masterpieces and they are [...]
This is a gin from the Bitter Truth that i think was launched this fall. It´s pink, it´s spiced with bitters and it lives in a real beautiful bottle.
It started with sea sickness…that`s from where the tradition of blending gin and bitters began by the Royal Navy. And that`s why i now sit [...]

It goes perfectly with all kinda citrus fruits and traditionally its the lemon and orange that is used, naturally since that`s what`s growing in Italy – the home [...]
Let`s use some navy strength gin..
Here`s an old favorite that i don´t mix very often but i think i should because this classic cocktail is an art of balance and flavor when done properly. And that`s the problem – this drink is as much a victim as the Mai Tai or the Hurricane [...]
Its time to take a trip to Hawaii folks – with the 7th cocktail from Grog Log – The Blue Hawaii.
Its some romantic nostalgia here – in my mind i can hear the music from that Elvis movie and remember the incredible beautiful pirogue wedding scene pictured at Coco Palms Resort and even [...]
Vieux Carrè cocktail
Tales of the Cocktail may still seem far away but time flies and what is more fitting prior to the Tales than mixing up some genuine cocktails from the city where the cocktail was born and where the Tales of the Cocktail is celebrated each year since eight years [...]
