Thanks to St Germain
and Renbjer Magnusson
, Sean Ware from Callooh Callay
in Stockholm on August 13th. During the day there was a workshop where he expressed his views on cocktail menu design, as well as showed some interesting cocktails and techniques. Later in the evening he did a special guest bartender appearance, also at Kåken, with his own menu of six cocktails based on St Germain. One of my favourites was Dram & Bass
which consisted of St Germain, Wray & Nephew, pineapple, fennel seeds, rosemary, simple syrup and lime juice. Another great drink was Queen Victoria’s Daisy
with bergamot-infused Bombay Sapphire Gin, Martini Rosso, St Germain, raspberries and egg white. After having tried all cocktails on the list, I was very happy – and the party continued elsewhere together with Sean and some other bartenders and spirits industry people. A big thanks to everyone involved for a great initiative!
