Nytorget 6

On Thursday I met my friend Reicell, we went to her neighborhood restaurant- and cocktail bar called Nytorget 6 where it is also located. The kitchen, I’ve heard, is amazing! The cocktails and the staff too. We got seats at the bar and behind it  I found both Fredrik and Peter. They’re friends and colleagues from Berns and I havn’t seen them in ages. They really took care of us and while we decided on what more to drink we…

IRISH COFFEE <3 ?>

IRISH COFFEE <3

I LOVE COFFEE DRINKS! One of the best is of course the Irish Coffee. A modern classic that has got a bad reputation for being rather tacky and among bartenders it’s kinda a bitch to have to make on a busy night. But nonetheless it’s a delicious drink really. I mean. Coffee is awesome. Whiskey too. And cream! I use cream in my coffee sometimes and for that a friend called me an old lady, but I just see it…

Christmas: Berlin vs Stockholm

So I celebrated Christmas with friends from Twinpigs in Berlin on Saturday and tonight with my mom and dad in Stockholm – or outside at their country house in Gnesta but anyway.

LAST MINUTE XMAS SCHNAPPS

If you’re a procrastinator like me, or just thought about how fun I’d be to make your own schapps for the weekend, here’s some quick booze infusions I recommend for the Christmas celebration that will only take one day. The pink one only takes a few hours actually I use Our/Berlin Vodka because it’s smooth and locally produced, and also I think vodka is the most suitable spirit for infusions when you want to really get the flavour out of…

ICE! ?>

ICE!

Don’t forget about the ice. Why ice is the most important cocktail ingredient I love the sound of ice, and to look at it too. Proper cocktail ice – the one you see bartenders carve from big ice blocks – can be as pretty as diamonds you.   💎 💎 I found this ice reminder on Trader Magnus Facebook page. Check it out, he’s always up to date about cocktails and the bar scene.
