Time to revisit the Coconaut which is a very nice Tiki drink. I wrote about it long ago and now its the 13th drink from Grog Log i stumble over. It contains only three ingredients – rum, lime and coconut cream (not cream of coconut which is a different thing)

I like the coconut in [...]

Many flavours naturally fits together and after a while with trial and errors you [...]

After a visit to the Cocktail Chronicles this spring reading the recipe for the tequila libation ”Flor de Jalisco” made by Death & Co bartender Joaquin Simo, this cocktail caught my attention and sparkled my appetite. I made [...]

COCKTAILS WITH MEZCAL part 1 – Old Ancho Cocktail

I`m going to start a new series – cocktails with mezcal. The reason for doing this is that i think mezcal deserves to be used much more in cocktail mixing, its such a nice spirit. Actually its used quite much now compared to before and that is a good thing, but i have never [...]
