The alpha and omega of mixology, seductive, intense and beautifully complex. If there is one cocktail-recipe to nail, it is that of the Old Fashioned. Traditionally made with Bourbon, the old fashioned has rightfully become a category of its own, showcasing whatever base-spirit is used to create it. Ours is composed of Angostura bitters, sugar and Bols Barrel Aged Genever, and it is every bit as tasty as you would hope.
Bols Barrel Aged Genever
Pour all of your ingredients into a rocks glass and add around four cubes of ice. Stir for 10 seconds, then add more ice to your glass. Stir for another 20 seconds. Now completely fill your glass with ice and use an orange zest to perfume and garnish your cocktail.

Rich and creamy with a hint of dark roast. A Martini so smooth, it will charm the cream off your espresso. It is said that the Espresso Martini find its origin in a 1980’s London bar, when a young supermodel asked a bartender to ‘wake me up and f*ck me up’. The bartender was cocktail-legend Dick Bradsell. The supermodel, eledgetly, none other than Miss Naomi Campell. To this day, the iconically smooth and creamy cocktail remains one of the most popular digestives in the world. The best part? You’ll whip it up in a jiff.
Tangy, refreshing and blue as the day is long. Arguably one of the world’s most famous cocktails, found in many different colors, shapes and sizes. Our version is of the blue kind, and carries the taste of aromatic oranges. A little confusing, but don’t be fooled, this Margarita means business. It is made with our beloved Blue Curaçao, lime and a good splash of tequila. It is meant for sunny days with friends, music and a splash in the pool!
Red Light Negroni
Bittersweet and beautifully complex. This Negroni is lined with botanicals and orange, with a smooth malty finish. Those who have fallen victim to the charms of this true Italian staple know it’s all about the delicate balance of flavors. Amsterdam might have a slightly less subtle reputation, but its rough-edged beauty and cut-to-the-chase mentality are admired by people far and wide. Our Red Light Negroni is an ode to two cultures, a perfectly complex mix of bitter, malty, sweet and fruity notes.
