Dark and Stormy

Dark and Stormy is a classic cocktail from around 1860 in Hamilton, Bermuda. The two Gosling brothers produced their Gosling Black Seal Rum in Bermuda, and ginger beer was also produced here. Hence, it was obvious that these would end up in the same glass and thus be the start of this classic drink.

Moscow mule

Moscow Mule was born in the beginning of the 1940’s and there are different stories about how it was created. One of the stories tells about a bartender who allegedly needed to clear his stock, and this resulted in the base of the cocktail we know today. Another story tells how an importer of Smirnoff and a ginger beer producer had the idea of mixing their products. No matter what the truth of the origin of this cocktail is, it was a god idea.

Paloma

The details of the paloma’s origin are a little murky. Unlike many classic cocktails, which predate Prohibition, the paloma didn’t arrive on the scene until after 1938. It is the most popular tequila-based cocktail in Mexico. Some believe that it is named after La Paloma ("The Dove"), the popular folk song composed in the early 1860s.

White Russian

Despite the name, the cocktail is reportedly created by a Belgian bartender who included “Russia” in the name as the cocktail primarily is based on vodka, which of course is associated with Russia. First the Black Russian, which exclusively consists of coffee liqueur and coffee, was created in 1949. Eventually he added cream and hence the White Russian was born. The Cocktail was popular in the 60’s but the popularity decreased until in 1998 where the film classic “The Big Lebowski” was released. The main character drank throughout the film 9 White Russians, and this inspired the fans of the film to also drink them in abundance. The popularity of the drink increased and today it is one of the most popular cocktails.

Americano

This cocktail was originally created in Italy by Gaspare Campari in the 1860’s. Even though we know it with soda today, it was originally made without. He called it the “Milano-Torino” as a tribute to the places from which the ingredients originated: Campari from Milan and Vermouth from Turin. Over time soda was added and hence it became the bubbly version we know today. It was popular among expatriate Americans and thus got known as “Americano”. Also, this is the very first drink ordered by James Bond in Casino Royale, the first book of the Ian Fleming series, and several times throughout later books.

Negroni

A widespread story about the origin of the cocktail is that it was created in Florence in 1919. The story is that Pascal Olivier Count de Negroni asked the bartender if he could make his favourite drink, Americano, stronger by replacing the soda with gin. To highlight the fact that it was a new drink, the bartender also replaced the classic lemon garnish of the Americano with orange peel twist, which still is the classic garnish for a Negroni.

Bramble

Bramble is a British drink invented in the mid 80’s by Dick Bradsell, who worked as a bartender in Fred’s Club in Soho, London. He wanted to create a British cocktail and especially his memories of picking blackberries on the Isle of Wight became a big inspiration. So he mixed the classic British spirit, gin, with lemon juice and sugar sirup, and topped the drink with blackberry liqueur (also known as crème de mûre) with those memories in mind.

Espresso Martini

There are several claims about the origin of the Espresso Martini. One of the stories, which recur often, is that in the late 80’s Dick Bradsell invented the drink as a young woman asked for something that “will wake me up, then fuck me up”. Bradsell served drinks next to the coffee machine, so since both coffee grounds and aroma filled the air around him, it was also on his mind. At the time people mainly drank vodka, so the obvious choice was to mix this with the coffee. And so, the Espresso Martini was born.

50/50 Martini

The Martini did begin life as an equal-parts drink. But those parts, in the late 19th century, were Old Tom Gin, a sweeter form of the spirit, and sweet vermouth. It wouldn’t be until after 1900 that a 50/50 Martini with dry gin and dry vermouth would appear. The exact origin of the martini is unclear. The name may derive from the Martini brand of vermouth while another popular theory suggests it evolved from a cocktail called the Martinez served sometime in the early 1860s in San Francisco

Corpse Reviver no.2

As the name alludes to, The Corpse Reviver is one of a category of "pick-me-up" that were prescribed by bar keeps of old revive those souls that appeared in their bar feeling worse the wear from over indulgence in the same place the night before. Perhaps more a "kill or cure" than a "hangover cure", this category of cocktail emerged in the mid-1800s. Corpse Reviver no.2 became popular after appearing in the revered 1930 "The Savoy Cocktail Book" where Harry Craddock stipulates "Four of these taken in swift succession will unrevive the corpse again

Champagne Cocktails

Death in the afternoon

The cocktail, which is also known as "Hemingway" or "Hemingway Champagne", was invented by Ernest Hemingway and 3 officers from H.M.S. Danae and shares a name with Hemingway's 1932 book. The recipe was published in "So Red the Nose, or Breath in the Afternoon", a 1935 cocktail book with contributions from famous authors. Hemingway's original instructions were:
"Pour one jigger absinthe into a Champagne glass. Add iced Champagne until it attains the proper opalescent milkiness. Drink three to five of these slowly."
The Cocktail is as hefty as the name suggests as is neither for the weak of heart nor for nipping at the New Years party. Paradoxically, or perhaps precisely because of this, it consists of the bar's two absolute opposites, the fresh sparkling wine and the hard absinthe.absolutte modpoler, den friske mousserende vin og den hårde absint.

Pornstar Martini

The Pornstar Martini was created by Douglas Ankrah of the famous Lab Bar in London, while he was formulating the menu for The Townhouse Bar in Knightsbridge in 2002. The cocktail was inspired by a drink Ankrah tried at a "louche gentlemen's club" called Mavericks while visiting Cape Town in South Africa. Ankrah wanted to create a drink which was bold, sexy, and playful. Ordering one is fun, and a little naughty. Drinking one transports you to a gentle breeze rustling the straw roof of a tiny tiki bar on some distant, sun-drenched tropical beach.

French 75

One of the first recorded recipes for the French 75 comes from The Savoy Cocktail Book (1930), but the true nature of its origins is, as often happens with alcohol, slightly muddled. It is also known as a "75 Cocktail" or in French simply a "Soixante Quinze" (75). The inspiration for the name was apparently a 75mm Howitzer field gun used by the French and the Americans in World War 1. The gun was known for its accuracy and speed, and the French 75 is said to have such a kick that it felt like being hit by just such a weapon.
