New Year Cocktails

This blog post contains advertisement

New Year’s Eve is approaching, do you have your new year cocktails ready ?.

The book “2020” is turning it’s last pages, and what a year it’s been! I think we can all agree on that.

The biggest topic of them all in 2020, have been the COVID-19 pandemic, and for many American citizens the US presidential election as well. Even though I live in Europe, I followed the election from distance and found it very interesting.

People and companies all over the world, have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and it has been tough for many industries. Working full time in the hospitality industry, I’ve seen how the pandemic have impacted this industry. I’m happy to see the how companies, bars and restaurants have invented new creative ways to make sales and help each other to get through these difficult times.

Hopefully we are entering the final stages of the COVID-19 era, so things can get back to “normal” and we can see “the light at the end of the tunnel” (go get drunk at bars).

New year, new beginning, new goals

Many of us have New Year resolutions. Whether yours is dropping weight, start exercising, or something else, a new year is a great opportunity to start chasing your dreams. I hope that you will achieve all of your goals for 2021!

I’m wishing you, your friends and family all the best for 2021!

Exclusive event

Ferdinands – The vermouth cocktails edition

This blog post contains advertisement

Recently I was invited to an exclusive online event by Ferdinands gin called “The vermouth cocktails edition” hosted by Denis Reinhardt and Mario Kappes.

During the event we were introduced to some great cocktails, all with Ferdinands dry saar gin and their line of vermouths in full focus.

Mario had prepared a line-up of some rather simple stirred vermouth cocktails for us. Find the recipes below.

When the Event started I was full of excitement. and ready to uncork the flavour of the saar.

The sound of “jingle bells” in the background from all the bar spoons stirring up cocktails

After a short introduction the liquids quickly started floating. Cocktails were mixing. The sound of “jingle bells” in the background from all the bar spoons stirring up vermouth cocktails, made the atmosphere just perfect. During these Corona times, it was pleasant to feel the cocktail passion and meet online with fellow bloggers.


Throughout the event Mario kept us entertained and educated with background stories accompanied with information about the products in scope.

“I like to have fun”

– Mario Kappes

It didn’t take long, before I had my hands full of delicious vermouth cocktails.

The cocktail that surprised me the most was Mario´s martini. I’m not very fond of martini´s in general, but this one must be one of the best I´ve ever had – if not the best!

Negroni is one of my preferred classic cocktails, especially when it contain Ferdinands red vermouth. I simply just love the vermouth and I sure loved this negroni too. I really recommend you to try the Ferdi Negroni, (recipe below).

The cocktail Bijou happily surprised me. It’s been a while since I last had a Bijou, and I don’t recall this cocktail being so good. My guess is the red vermouth from Ferdinands, made all the difference.

My favorite cocktail of the event was without a doubt; the Vesper royal. The Vesper royal looked appealing, crisp and delicious. I loved every sip of it! For me all the flavours harmonized perfectly, like an orchestra playing all the right tones, making the crowd smile, applaud and leaving the evening with a big smile on their lips.

During the event it was mentioned, that it´s quite some booze to put us through, but as Mario said “I like to have fun” and we sure did have a fun time.

All in all; a fantastic event in great company.
