At those moments I start to think about cocktail recipes I could invent or I plan cocktail parties. In this case I came up with this drink related project and my motivation behind it. So here it goes: I dream up a lot of cocktail recipes and most of the time I don’t have the ingredients on hand, that means it takes a while until I get around to sample them. When I finally have the ingredients and can prepare them the odds are fifty-fifty if they work, or don’t.
If they taste good and get approved by my friends and family I can’t help but feel a little proud of myself for creating something “new”. But most of the times the story ends there. I make the cocktail a few times and after that the recipe disappears in a drawer and is forgotten.
I started this blog, to give me an opportunity to share my drink compositions with a broader audience. Moreover I will write about some recipes for homemade ingredients, which make drinks so much better.
Last but not least this project gives me the chance to combine three things I love: Drinks, photography and music. I think the last one needs a little context concerning cocktails. I draw a lot of inspiration from music. Most of the time it’s just the name for the drink, but sometimes it’s more than that. As a reference to that I am going to suggest a piece of music with every recipe, so that you can listen to it while sipping the cocktail.
I hope you enjoy my creations!
