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.

This is how to make a Rock and Rye Cocktail

Fill a shaker halfway with crushed ice.
Add the rock candy and lemon juice and rye whiskey to the cocktail shaker.
shake vigorously for 20 to 30 seconds.
Strain the contents of the cocktail shaker into a chilled old jam jar.
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.
There are some beautiful jars out there
