A visit to Pulitzer’s Bar (Cocktail bar of the Year 2020 by Gault & Millau) will have to be postponed to a later time in the year. If you can’t visit the bar, bring the bar to you, right?
Head bartender Andrei Talapanescu (Entrée Best Bartender in the Netherlands 2020) shares his secrets. Try making one of the signature cocktails yourself and who knows, you might even improve your mixology skills so much that you’ll be the next guest bartender in Pulitzer’s Bar.
The current menu is inspired on Agatha Christie’s best-known crime novel, Murder on the Orient Express. The characters from the book are the main source of inspiration. The characteristics reflect each drink; the name, the ingredients as well as the taste notes.
Take The Governess for example. A delicious drink that can be defined as light, refreshing, citrusy and dry.
Ingredients The Governess:
- Porter’s Tropical Old Tom or a different Gin* 40ML
- Lemon Juice 30ML
- White Grapefruit Tea Oleo or Monin Red Grapefruit Syrup 15ML
- Fever-Tree Soda 50ML
- Fever-Tree Tonic 50ML
Build all ingredients in a long drink glass with ice cubes and top off with Fever-Tree Soda and Fever-Tree Tonic. Stir a little and garnish with citrus powder.
*Switch Porter’s Tropical Old Tom for 40ml Everleaf for a boozeless version.
