Tales of the black sheep

Cocktail sliders at last!

Cocktail sliders – thank god someone finally thought of it! Besides socializing going out for cocktails is about interesting taste experiences and a slider menu lets you have more of those for the price of one. That’s a winning bet if you ask us.

This three smaller drinks serving created by AJ Major is served with a cartoon as coaster offering af little tale for each drink. In short this is a little cocktail odyssey taking the a little sheep from a molecular mixology science bar through a classic Danish bodega to AJ’s place where a wonderful mix of beer and whisky makes him feel right at home.

Deconstruced cuba libra
2 cl Velvet falernum
2 cl Diplomatico anejo
1 drop of angostura

Stir to chill. Serve from a mixing glass with dry ice.

Small bodega beer serving
Well… beer. Preferably stale. Oh, and lots of pipe smoke.

Whisky & beer
Brown ale
Egg white
3 dashes of Mozart chocolate bitters
Honey and ginger syrup
Black Bush Irish whisky

Shake all ingredients except for the whisky for foam. Pour the foam in a frozen glass and long pour the black bush whiskey in after.

These are wonderful little servings. Even the ashy bodega beer experience if you accept it as it’s intended – it might not agree with every palate, but it will most certainly bring back memories of your first visit to a brown bodega.

Hopefully we’ll see more of those slider menus popping up around cocktail bars in Copenhagen soon.

I believe that true mastery eventually leads to original creation given the right conditions. I love creative cocktails that push the limits of flavor pairing. But I can't deny I have a personal preference for whisky and love everything that is clear and stirred.
