Column: Cocktail of the week

Published on July 1st, 2008



One of my recent passions include writing a weekly column about cocktails. It is a voluntary project, but also an excellent reason to get a drink on a plain tuesday afternoon. The column is published almost every week on

Cocktails – the stronger the better! I generally prefer Martinis and martini-like cocktails, including (but certainly not limited to) Manhattans, Gimlets, (strong) Margaritas. I also love the old classics like the Sazerac.

The stronger the better!”

In my favorite Martini you find: stirred Plymouth Navy Strength poured in a chilled and Noilly Prat coated cocktail glas garnished with an olive and a lime twist and with just a single drop of Angostura bitters. If the omnipresent Plymouth is not available, I use frozen Tanqueray (just keep it in the freezer where it belongs). The olive, the twist and the vermouth can also be left out, if there is an emergency and no time to fiddle around.


The column was discontinued in 2009 and is no longer available.
