This Grapefruit Gin & Tonic is a delicious variation on the original Gin & Tonic. By adding grapefruit, the cocktail gets its pretty colour and an extra bitter bite. (more…)
Munich is one of those places everyone should visit, at least once in their life. The view from the Olympiaturm, a stroll through Nymphenburg Park and a beer at the Hofbräuhaus are obvious musts when you travel to Munich. However, for lovers of Rock ’n Roll, retro, cocktails and Tiki, there are a lot of other really cool things to do in Munich!
This is our top 5! (more…)
If it’s up to us, we’ll celebrate éverything. We love parties! We regularly put together something fun for our friends and gladly pull out all the stops. Last year, we celebrated the Greaser’s birthday with a Rock n Roll beer tasting. This year, we treated him and our friends to a tropical Tiki Cocktail party!
You probably noticed we love Tiki: we have a nice collection of amazing Tiki mugs, we have a palm tree in our living room, our balcony is a Tiki paradise and we regularly overindulge with a great Tiki cocktail. However, you might be surprised this was our very first Tiki party! Wait, what..?! We know…
The reason is quite simple: when we throw a Tiki party, we want to do it right. Which means; with the right music, great outfits and of course with utterly delicious fresh cocktails, made by the Greaser. In order to do this, we needed space. Which is why we awaited the arrival of our beautiful cocktail bar, before putting together our first Tiki party. The Greaser was having a great time behind our new showpiece in the living room, all night. Of course the bar needed a warm welcome: time for a Tiki party!
Mai Tai means “good” in Tahitian, and that’s exactly what the Mai Tai is! It’s my favourite cocktail. Since Victor Bergeron, better known as Trader Vic, invented the Mai Tai in 1944, people have created countless of variations. This version resembles the cocktail you can still order at Trader Vic’s!

Surprisingly, this well-known Tiki cocktail was not invented in a Tiki bar. The Hurricane was discovered in the 40s at an Irish pub named Pat O’Brien’s in New Orleans. Nowadays, you can still order a Hurricane there, but you can also make it yourself using this recipe! (more…)
It seems like only yesterday we were putting together a list of our plans for 2016. The year has flown by and so much has happened! The world is shaking, but we prefer to focus on the positives in life today. Because wow – what a year it’s been.
At the beginning of the year, after celebrating a ridiculous luscious Christmas with our family and friends, we posted our plans for the year to come. It’s fun to look back at this, as this post has truly been our game plan for the year.
As you may know by now; we are planners, we pay a lot of attention to detail and we love it when a plan comes together. And boy, did our plans come together. 2016 has been a year of a lot of hard work, but it paid off! We are incredibly proud of what we’ve accomplished and of course beyond thankful for your support!

It’s no secret; I’m anything but a chef. But I LOVE Christmas and I’m always happy to bring something tasty to Christmas parties. Last year I showed how you can make my famous melted snow man cookies. This year, I’m showing you more happy Christmas cookies.
Read on to find out how you can make these adorable reindeer cookies! As well as for the snow man cookies, you don’t need (baking) talent. With a little bit of preparation, you can put out something Christmassy in a minute! Just like the melted snow man cookies these treats will put a smile on everyone’s face. (more…)
Two years after Jack Daniel’s released their Sinatra Select, they announced an even more exclusive Sinatra Whiskey. On December 12th 2015 Ol’ Blue Eyes would have celebrated his 100th birthday. To celebrate this milestone, the whiskey manufacturer from Lynchburg released the Jack Daniel’s Sinatra Century.
Aside from being a huge Sinatra fan, I – like Frank himself – am a Jack Daniel’s fanatic. After purchasing the Sinatra Select in September 2015, which I discussed here, the Sinatra Century could obviously not miss in my collection. (more…)
