Hi guys! I hope you’re all safe at home! Talking of safe, I think it is safe to say that being in containment had sparked in many of us, an imagination we forgot we had. Thinking of new ways to stay busy, new games, recipes… I always thought that being limited is a good way to be innovative and I try to apply that concept in my cocktails once in a while. Today, I’m giving you some tips to be able to create delicious sour cocktails at home, using what you have handy. I hope you will like it! Don’t forget to tag us on Instagram if you give it a try. We would love to see what you will come up with. Stay safe my friends. Cheers!
Whether you’re cooking or making cocktails, for a living or as a hobby, it’s no secret that working with seasonal products makes a big difference in the quality of your recipe. For a long time now, many restaurants been offering seasonal/from farm to table menu and recently, some bars also adopted that approach. I find this very motivating. On the one hand, it’s a challenge to work with ingredients when they are in season. You have to build your inspiration around what’s available at the moment, but at the same time it gives you a direction which can help you in your creative process.
Surprised to see my name instead of Jean-Félix as an author in that cocktail section? That’s because I needed to talk to you about that place. As you already know, Jean-Felix is a bartender, and an AMAZING one. He got me really picky about cocktails. As I’m used to drinking what he does for me all the time, I’m not easily impressed anymore when I go to cocktail bars and this, no matter where we are in the world.
What’s up everybody! Valentine’s day coming and I’m sure many of you are looking for the perfect gift. Well, this might save your day. I just tried a new gin from Belgium and it’s INSANE!!!
I must say I’m not the one who usually like the “not London dry style” when it comes to gin, but in this case, the ingredients line up really teased me. I think the word “tease” fits perfectly the mood here since X-Gin self-proclaimed themselves an aphrodisiac gin. Well, I don’t know about that yet but the cocoa and vanilla in the mix, added to the marketing of the aphrodisiac property make of this gin, on top of being delicious, the perfect Valentine’s day gift. Don’t you think?
