Sometimes a guests walks into the bar for a cocktail not feeling like reading the entire cocktail menu through, not able to figure out how the cocktails on the menu will taste, or maybe have chosen a cocktail based solely on the name (and been disappointed subsequently) too many times, and instead give the bartender free hands and some key words to what he or she is looking for and want.
The challenge is not to invent a new cocktail, but based on the keywords to propose a classic cocktail, a classic cocktail with a twist, a cocktail from the current menu, or perhaps a new cocktail the bar or bartender are currently working on.
Burak has been in the industry for years and is currently managing Castenskjold in Aarhus. Before that he worked behind the stick at Fidels also in Aarhus. We challenged Burak to give us his suggestion based on the same keywords as Simon Sjødahl from Mash, Odense was faced with. “Suggest a cocktail that is bold, fresh and fruity – preferably without dairy products.”
“All bartenders loves whiskeys, bourbons etc. After a Really long rough shifts We all bartenders looking forward to finish our shifts,sit back and enjoy a cocktails or something on the rocks. i wanted to make something that is fresh and available in any market. Cheers !”
