Launching the new ‘Cocktail Professor’ Cocktail Menu at Ovolo Southside, Hong Kong

A few weeks back I was working on a project for Cocktail Professor, setting up a cocktail menu and training the staff at Ovolo Southside Hotel in Hong Kong. Me and Tony were there for two weeks and on our last night the hotel hosted a neighborhood party launching the cocktail menu! The menu has been made in advanced and when we’re on site we make the drinks and adjust whatever needs to be adjusted according to local equipment, ingredients,…

Two weeks ago today, me and Tony hosted a workshop on bartending for a bunch of Hong Kong food- and drinks bloggers at soon-to-re-open Komune restaurnat & bar in Ovolo Southside Hotel, Hong Kong. We made an Ovolo Mule for the bloggers to enjoy, before they got to come around the bar and mix a drink from the signature cocktail menu that Cocktail Professor created for the hotel. The Ovolo Mule is a twist on the Moscow Mule which is…

Training Day 2 – Ovolo Southside ?>

Training Day 2 – Ovolo Southside

Yesterday was the first day on training the staff at Ovolo Southside Hotel in craft bartending. Basically we covered some cocktail history and the importance of stimulating the five senses, and not just the sense of taste, when creating a concept; cocktails and venue. We discussed what it means to be a bartender and to be part of this industry, and we simply had a really nice day together. Today we started with spirit knowledge. Tony is just brilliant! He…

Semi-secret sneak peak pre-taste of the cocktails at Gordon tonight!

No BCB for me this year.. but I’ve got something else cooking: We’re doing a sneak-launch of the cocktail menu at Gordon tonight.

Come and let me know what colour you prefer!! 19.00 – 00.00 at GORDON – Allerstraße 11 (u-bahn Leinestraße in Neukölln) It…

THIS IS SO FUCKING EXCITING! We’re building a bar!!!! Or my bosses are, I’m not helping with the construction exactly, but I’m helping them building the concept.

Levande Charader in Copenhagen ?>

Levande Charader in Copenhagen

What makes the perfect party, really? 

 That was the main question I had in mind when I followed the event business Ljudpoolen and party collective Levande Charader from Stockholm to the street festival Distortion in Copenhagen last week, where I expected to help out with the bars, not to be embraced as a future bar-boss at their events – which of course was an incredible outcome! Nils Wikland, one of the founders of both operations, took me under his…

Cocktail Workshop ?>

Cocktail Workshop

Last night me and Celina held a cocktail workshop at Melody Nelson, it was this company who gave it to their members of staff as a little holiday treat. If you wanna learn about cocktails and bartending and mix some drinks yourself with you friends, staff, support group or who ever, I can teach you everything from what a cocktail really is to shaking techniques and booze knowledge. It’s a win win – you’ll get to drink some nice cocktails…
