cranberry-orange-cinnamon infused vodka

by Eva Felis on November 30, 2015

Yesterday was the first advent, it’s officially Christmas season! It’s the time we have to go through awkward company Christmas parties, but furthermore the time to invite family and friends and be jolly or whatever vodka does to you. For that reason I had been making infused vodka like a maniac lately. Why not flavor Weiterlesen



appled dark ‘n’ stormy

by Eva Felis on November 17, 2015

Who is afraid of the dark? Torrential rain? Thunderstorms and lightning? Anyone? Bummer! I would raise my hand, because it’s the best excuse and occasion to enjoy this appled dark ‘n’ stormy. This cocktail is named after the “color of a cloud only a fool or a dead man would sail under”. At the time Weiterlesen



blackberry-thyme-lemon infused vodka

by Eva Felis on November 9, 2015

Halloween had been just the start of the fall parties, and the holiday season is upon us! Those colder months are my favorite time of the year! The days are getting shorter, the nights longer, and that means more time for parties and to get together with friends. It’s the season for red wine, bourbon Weiterlesen



tipsy black cherry shake

by Eva Felis on July 31, 2015

Sorry kiddos this one is for grown ups only.  Although this tipsy black cherry shake looks innocent like a virgin, it’s boozy. And not overly sweet at all.
Getting into business with this tipsy shakes is like opening Pandora’s box, once you started and there is still vanilla ice cream in the freezer, there will be Weiterlesen



nonni – orange liqueur and prosecco cocktail

by Eva Felis on July 20, 2015

One of Henry James’ famous quotes is: “Summer afternoon—summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.” Add “happy hour-happy hour” to this and you have my favorite idea of summer afternoons. It has become a thing around my house to have a Friday-afternoon-hell-yeah-it’s-weekend cocktail on the Weiterlesen



rosy strawberry cooler

by Eva Felis on May 12, 2015

For the last month my life’s motto would be this quote from Erich Kästner: “You can build something beautiful from stones that are put in your way.” He was one of my favorite authors growing up and still is – still growing up. I wrote down his quote on a slip of paper and put Weiterlesen



white wine sangria with blackberries and rosemary

by Eva Felis on July 25, 2014

A certain sign and kind of proof that I drift from adolescence into adulthood is the change of my taste. Obviously also a change into bad humor, as I should rather say: senility lies in wait. Growing up nothing could be sweet enough and I had been able to eat bags of candies. Nowadays the Weiterlesen



bad reputation

by Eva Felis on June 23, 2014

Some moons ago we celebrated Mr. F’s birthday at Holeman & Finch Public House. We always enjoy their food, in fact they score high on every best burger list nationwide. Today we are not here to talk burger unfortunately, I would love to lay my hands on their recipe… We are talking about a cocktail: Weiterlesen



Iced Pharisäer- a cold hypocrite

by Eva Felis on May 27, 2014

Once upon a time on the little island called Nordstrand in the North Sea someday in the 19th century… A festivity took place, the occasion had been a christening. A peasant called Peter Johannsen had become father for the umpteenth time (historians say it might be the sixth or the seventh?) and he had Weiterlesen



greyhound meets elderflower cocktail

by Eva Felis on April 2, 2014

I obviously missed the peak of grapefruit season by a couple of weeks. Yet it’s never too late for a good recipe and too early for a bracing cocktail. Thus I am right on time somehow…
