Best Cocktail Bars
It depends on which neighborhood I’m in... If I am in the Pijp or Oud-Zuid, I go to The Butcher. But if I am somewhere in the center or on the West side, I go to Vesper. But when it is 4 or 5a, I know I can still go to Door 74. But, I have to be in the neighborhood. Otherwise it’s too much of a hassle to get in.
For a long time, my favorite cocktail was a Dark and Stormy. For a really long time. Then, I dunno, I got really over it. I was done with the ginger beer. Now my go-to is a Monkey and tonic. It’s like a gin and tonic, but a very good one using a new gin from Germany mixed with lavender bitters and a bit of orange zest to add refreshment. When I give a workshop, it’s what I recommend.
