Need to kick things up a little ? I’m sure these coffee cocktails will do the trick.
Coffee cocktails is much more than the classic Irish coffee or espresso martini, which I think must be the most well known coffee cocktails, but they also are for a reason, its really deilicious cocktails.
I want to show that there is much more to sipping coffee in drinks than making the classics, and therefore I have made four drinks with coffee which shows you can go in many different directions using coffee to kick up your sips with a little caffeine.
If you like me, love a good coffee and also cocktails. Then I’m sure you’ll love these cocktails with the use of coffee.
Cheers & enjoy!

Who doesn’t love good festive gin and tonics ? In this post I have made some delicious suggestions for you, on how to serve some festive gin and tonics that both taste and looks good.
Over the past years gin and tonic increased in popularity, and for a good reason, the market for both gins and tonics is wide, with many options to find the perfect taste just for you and your next bubbly treat.
A gin and tonic can take you in so many different directions, depending on the gin and tonic you’ll use. The botanicals which are used in the making of them makes a huge difference in how your gin and tonic will taste. I really like to experiment with the taste in a gin a tonic, using modifyers or a tonic that I think pairs well with the gin.
The visual appereace of the cocktail is important and can easily reach a wow-effect, either by building in layers, torching a sprig of herb or pouring in the tonic in front of the consumer (or the camera). Gin and tonic should be a festive, bubbly and delicious thirst quencher.

Cheers & enjoy !

The Negroni template is a template I really like and enjoy to experiment with in all kinds of combinations. In this post I have picked three negroni cocktails with different expressions and visual appearances, of this well known classic cocktail. I have served all three negronis in my squared glass.
I love to serve Negroni in my square glass. I get a lot of questions about this particular square glass, I bought in a second-hand store close to where I live. I often visit second-hand stores to find new glassware and bar gear. Second-hand is good for the global environment and they often supports a good cause.
My local second-hand store fight against poverty and support the vulnerable people in Asia, Africa, Middle East & Denmark. By shopping locally, I found the most popular and liked glass in my collection, and supported a good cause – What’s not to like?
