Summer coctails

May 13, 2014

As summer is fast approaching, I am noticing a spring in my step and am starting to think about maybe gathering some friends together for some early evening cocktails.

A few hazy coctails in Copenhagen

I went to Denmark last summer , where we went to a cocktail bar in some cool part of town. I loved the way they served our drinks, very charming and best of all easy to replicate.

Just one more for the road

 

 

Garnish with a twisted lemon or you could use a lid; make a hole in the top to put a straw into it. You could even make a old looking label by using a brown post office lable and hand write the instructions. This is a nice thing your guests could bring back home with them at the end of the evening to remember the night by.
