Friday night cocktails

Friday night is a good time to enjoy a good cocktail.

Even though cocktails have never been more fashionable than they are at this current moment, we don't have many good cocktail bars in Helsinki. Of course many Helsinki restaurants and bars sell cocktails, but really skilled mixologists are a rare breed.

American bar in Torni hotel is my favourite, it's the oldest cocktail lounge in Helsinki; it's relatively small and has sophisticated atmosphere. Roger Moore, whom we all remember as Martini sipping James Bond in several films, enjoyed a Dry Marini there in May, 2009, while promoting his biography in Helsinki. "Excellent! Very good indeed!" was his comment... Well, if their Dry Martini is good enough for him, it's good enough for me...

If you happen to visit American bar, there is also another bar on the top floor of the hotel. The best wiev over Helsinki is from their ladies room.

We mix our cocktails mostly at home. Last week we enjoyed Gimlets.

Gimlet for one
2 oz. Gin
1/2 oz. Lime Juice
Combine in a shaker with ice.
Shake vigorously and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

This goes well with Gimlets.
