Nothing like a crisp gin gimlet to forget about life for a minute. My buddy @gregmayer always takes great care of me when I go in to @academiaaustin down on 4th. I like to throw him at least one curve ball a night and spring not-so-classic recipes at him but ultimately I come back to the tried-and-trues before I close my tab.
What about a classic Gin & Tonic?
In may of this year, we’ve attended the Gin & Rum Festival in Lucern🇨🇭
One of those moment when you can approach small producers, talk directly with the creators, and of course, try one and every bottle you encounter.
Through the visits, we’ve discovered one small producer which meant a lot to us. They grow the herbs in many different fields, and once harvested, there’s a distillery truck coming to their place to create a very unique Gin. It’s called Edelwhite 57, and they come from Lucern, Switzerland.
Despite a tremendous taste, this gin has another cool feature; when mixed to water or ice, it looses it’s transparency and becomes sort of white’ish.
So today’s Gin & Tonic is made of @edelwhitegin & Fever Tree Mediterranean Tonic 🍸
In an ice filled tumbler glass, add both ingredients an stir gently:
4cl of Gin #edelwhite
Top up with #fevertreemediterranean tonic
Garnish with a lime wheel 🍋
1.0 oz. Light Rum
1.0 oz. Dark Rum
1.0 oz. Lime Juice
0.5 oz. Cointreau
0.5 oz. Orgeat Syrup
Mint sprig for garnish
Lime wheel for garnish
Shake all the ingredients except the dark rum. Pour shaken ingredients into a glass filled with crushed ice. Pour over a spoon the dark rum.
We are not going to lie that this awesome drink by @thecocktail.blog is remarkable.
Not an (ad) or is it?🧐
I simply cannot find out anymore 😫with all the rules and regs that will for sure ruing the fun for most of us🤬
But I say not down here in Italy folks!💪🔆🇮
I am so grateful for all the love and support💙 I have been feeling down here, wishing me and my Family a wonderful trip - and boy has it been exactly that🏝
The weather, the food, the drinks, the mountains, the beaches, the pool, the new bottle discoveries; yes everything makes you wonder why one can’t do this for a lifetime - I would like to sign up right now📃
Have you engaged with your Holidays yet?⛱
Today I am showcasing my newly found (self bought-not sponsored) Amaro💉
As you might well know Amari are liqueurs created by infusing dozens of herbs and spices in alcohol, then sweetened and diluted to make them consumable neat–assuming you have a moderately adventurous palate - and please do mind Bitters and Amari are two separate things🤓
The Lucano name refers to Lucania, an ancient district of Southern Italy.
Although the exact recipe for Amaro Lucano is a secret (no surprise there, as every amari’s recipe is a closely guarded, apparently) the company does offer that it includes “wormwood, absinthe gentile, clary sage, achillea moscata, cardo santo, sweet orange, angelica, gentian, elder, rue, and aloe.”😋
The taste of this is rounded nicely, and have a nice balance between sweet and bitter.
If you know Averna, then this will feel very similar💡
Now to the cocktail;
In my “Travel-kit” I brought along some gin’s, and still not having found some “local” gin, I am still using these (not that it’s worse, just known)😊
Gin, Amaro and sweet vermouth? - Makes for a Hanky-Panky doesn’t it?😀

It's Gin o'clock people! No filter needed! Happy Monday! Enjoy the sunshine 🍇🍃🍈 This glorious Monday is calling for fresh lime, raspberry and mint with a good dollop of Pinkster Gin and Fever Tree Tonic 🍇🍃🍈
We would like to thanks @the_gentrybartender for letting us to reshare their special Gin And Hibiscus Swizzle for permitting us to share this post. “Gin And Hibiscus Swizzle”.
I love using hibiscus as a sweetener in a cocktail as it never comes across too sickly and also adds an element of sharpness and I’ve yet to find a gin cocktail that St Germain doesn’t work in.
London Dry Gin// St Germain// Hibiscus Syrup// Lemon Juice// Lavender Bitters.
Some rules need to broken sometimes.isn't it???!!!!
Who can say no to a strawberry??
We like to thanks @cocktaildetour for permitting us to share this post.
When Jillian Vose made a surprise visit to bar 20hundra5 in Stockholm last year, at the very same evening we were guest judges in a cocktail competition there, we were quite excited!⠀
Having previously featured several of Jillian's cocktails in our feed we've been holding on to this one, the Warehouse C, for a while. Because it couldn't be more fitting to post this one than today, on Swedish Midsummer Eve, the strawberry fiesta day of the year. ⠀
In the Warehouse C there might be only one single strawberry, but that one alone turns this cocktail into a summery temptation. Combined with orgeat, lime and cinnamon syrup it is almost a tiki drink. Sweet and refreshing at the same time.⠀
1,5 oz bourbon⠀
0,75 oz lemon juice⠀
0,25 oz lime juice⠀
0,25 oz orgeat⠀
0,25 oz cinnamon bark syrup⠀
0,25 oz ginger syrup⠀
1 dash aromatic bitters⠀
Muddle the strawberry in a shaker. Add all the other ingredients and shake with ice then strain into a coupe. No garnish Jillian says, we disobeyed and decorated with a strawberry. It is midsummer after all!⠀

Now you have something special to cheer!!Start your day with this RHUBARBED SKOT’ISH EDMUND by @thecocktail.blog
Some like it thick, some like it thin!
Yes, this could be the start of a very interesting conversation, but before things get out of hand, let me clarify😇
Either way you eat it - rhubarb is in season!!!🔆
When growing up my grandmother used to use rhubarb in her pies and pudding - the pudding was served with cooled heavy cream and sugar - such a treat🥣
I later found out that this vegetable is low in cholesterol and sodium, keeps the body cleansed and offers various fibers and vitamins (who cares when being a kid right?)👶🏼
Did you know that rhubarb was used as a medicine/healing ointment in earlier centuries?
And that the redder the stalk, the sweeter the taste?
And that the leaves attached to the rhubarb stalk are poisonous?
And that the word “rhubarb” can also mean “a heated argument or dispute” but not often used today?🤓
Consider yourself enlightened💡
All that talk about vegetables sure made me thirsty, so allow me to serve you a great Friday dish🍸
