Last Tuesday I was invited to go on a trip... not just a normal trip...but a Cocktail Trip! Great way to break your week don't you think? So we started our trip in a bar called 'Vesper', located in 'De Jordaan' area of Amsterdam. I have never been there before but I'll definitely come back there with my friends, it's a very small cocktail bar but with a very unique cosy interior. The reason this trip was organised is because of the worlds best Cocktail shaker is 'Fjalhr Goud' and he's Dutch! To celebrate this we went from the 'Vesper' to 4 other cocktail bars 'Njoy', 'Feijoa', 'The Butchers' and 'Door 74'. And in every bar I drank the signature cocktail of the other top 4 cocktail shakers of the world..Let me tell you one thing.. me drinking cocktails and then try to remember what's in it..
OOH a challenge doomed to fail! I mean I didn't want to be rude and ask the cocktail-shaker to make me a virgin cocktail?! It's like asking a hairdresser to just comb your hair instead of cutting it! So give me a break... I HAD to try them all ;) I mean I didn't want to be rude you know ;) . One thing I DO remember is that they we're all very tasty and different than other cocktails I drank in my life.. They made cocktails with ginger, lime and even Cinnamon! How come that there isn't a real Cocktail-Culture going on here in Holland? I think Cocktails are like desserts..You crave for them always.. you can enjoy them any time .. and you just won't get enough of them...
What are you waiting for.. go get yourself a COCK-TAIL! WHUAHA ;)
