The format for Desert Island Drinks is loosely based on a famous UK radio programme called Desert Island Discs – a music programme, where celebrities are interviewed about their music taste. On this show, the celebrity is asked ‘If you were stranded on a desert island, and had only 7 pieces of music to listen to, what would they be?’.
So, we do the same, but with cocktails!
This week, Morten Krag, a.k.a. thecocktail.blog is stranded on a desert island, and must pick his favourite cocktail to make and drink in 5 different scenarios.
So, without further ado, Morten, what would be your classic cocktail of choice?
A Dry Martini. It’s a great way to taste both spirits and new cocktail bars. If they master a Martini, I’m pretty confident they will master most classic cocktails.
Few ingredients, simple to make, but requires attention, patience and a whole lot of love to get it perfect, while demanding quality products.
The Martini template is also perfect to tweak and riff, and this version of it contains Sake and a syrup.
