Cocktail story

Inspired by the lifestyle of bartenders, and what is for us a standard – moon – so the name is derived from a shinto god of moon. Sleeping during the day, working nights, moon is our friend and follower. I created a futuristic twist on an improved genever cocktail to portray the refreshing nights after a good shift at work. This deep tasting twist emphasizes the maltiness and citrusy freshness of Genever 21 through refreshing notes of lemongrass, with nocturnal tones of prunes and pomegranates.

Heat 3


Alchemist highball started as a simple highball drink. Upon some contemplation upon the topic, I realized that each guest have their own preference when it come to even the classic and simple drinks. The beauty of the BOLS Genevers in styles is the perfect star for the stage of this highball. I have taken it as a challenge to explore more drinks, and what my guests love about them in order to be able to modify Alchemist highball to each guest style, mood, feelings that they brought to the bar.
