This week we welcome Andy Shannon, joint founder of Candra Drinks, who tells us all about the new website we think every home mixer should be checking out.
The Cocktail Lovers Podcast, Episode 3 – listen here!
Having headed up operations at London Edition Andy has now turned his attention to the home. In this episode he explains how his new website will help us all make better drinks at home, using limited ingredients and everyday kitchen equipment, from classics to clever twists like the Coffee G & T featured above.
We also open up our drinks cabinet to sample Aloha 65, a spirit infused with fresh pineapple, lemon, ginger, scotch bonnet chillies, herbs and spices, and savour Baldoria, a vermouth conceived in France and created in Italy.
This week’s pick from our cocktail library is the essential ‘Schofield’s Fine and Classic Cocktails, Celebrated Libations and Other Fancy Drinks’.
And as for where we’ve been… we share how we settled in at the breathtakingly beautiful Atrium Bar and its fun and funky sister Side Hustle in the brand new and oh-so sophisticated NoMad London, a must for 5-star drinks and dining. Read our full review here
