The drinks I made ranged from straight up and boozy to lower ABV highball style drinks, with […]

RECIPE: Drinks of the Week (40)

This week was all about giving back. The ‘Drinkstagram’ community is an endless source of inspiration and brings new knowledge and ideas on a daily basis. With #TributeToTheGram I let people send in their own creations they were proud of and in return I chose seven (each with a different base spirit) to reshake. The […]

Ze vroegen mij om met Grand Marnier, de alomgekende sinaasappel- en cognaclikeur een cocktail te maken. Grand Marnier is een 19e eeuwse likeur die haar oorsprong […]
