Where to drink Ocho this month
This is one of our long-time favourite bars, and an absolute must-visit when in Stockholm. It has been named Best Bar in Sweden for the last two years running and we are extremely proud to announce that Ocho is now their house tequila. This month, we’re drinking at Linje Tio/Tjoget !
What we’re drinking this month
For many, the go-to drink this festive season will be egg nog… Why not mix things up a little bit this year and go for a Death Flip cocktail instead?
30ml Tequila Ocho blanco
15ml Yellow Chartreuse
5ml simple syrup
1 whole egg
Shake all ingredients vigorously with cubed ice and single strain into a chilled coupe. Dust some nutmeg over the top and enjoy cold!
This cocktail was created by Chris Hysted at Black Pearl, Melbourne. While it may not look like it on paper, we can assure you this is one tasty holiday tipple!
Until next month – wishing you a tequila-filled festive season!
