When it comes to fine drinking under the warm spring sun, there is no beating the classics.
So you think you can hit the cocktail scene on a warm afternoon and soak up on all the sun that you can handle? Okay but first make sure you are dressed for the occasion and you are ready to show the world your bold side by choosing a wild combination of bold colors and patterns that, in the end, creates an even, cool outfit.
Remember that color blocking is not just a two-tone discussion between colors. You can bet on two basic hues, like we did here with these red and blues, and then take it away with a mix in big, assertive prints, such as the ones featured on this fantastic Hawaiian shirt. By the way, this is the season to go out and choose the Hawaiian prints that will join you all the way to your sartorial maturity, as all the great fashion firms have come up with their very own, delicious incarnations of this classic.
Always find clever little ways of creating tiny details that speak volumes for your fashion attitude. For example, here we have toyed with the soles of the shoes, giving the reds on the shirt and the pants a lovely sense of continuum. And another little thing we did was an act of mischief, by isolating the pocket square and giving it a personality of its own. If you think about it, both moves, no matter how different, have the same effect!
50ml Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva
4 Fee Brothers Old Fashioned Bitters
3 Fee Brothers Peach Bitters
2 Peuchaud Bitters
15ml Monin Falernum
2 pieces fresh pineapple
In a shaker, we mash the pineapple with a pestle and then add the rest of the ingredients with ice. Shake vigorously and double-strain in a coupette glass. Pineapple and cherry will do the trick when it comes to garnishing your drink!
42 Bar Athens
42 is the answer to the ultimate question of life, according to Douglas Adams A Hitchhikers Guide to the Universe. Located in an atmospheric alley, with a shady plane tree and an intimate interior space, this successful bar has become a favorite in Athens, from the first day it opened. Luxurious, classy and non smoking, this is a bar that set the standards for fine cocktail drinking in Greece. Signature creations, international bar food and a divine jazz, hip-hop and soul soundtrack, create a fascinating answer to any of life’s big questions.
