Inside Copenhagen #3: mixologist Gromit Eduardsen on drinking in the Danish capital

Tell us about your invention, the Copenhagen Cocktail.
I wanted to make a modern cocktail with interesting twists that everyone could enjoy. And, I wanted to challenge people’s preconceptions about Cherry Heering liqueur – a drink Queen Victoria enjoyed as an after-dinner tipple. I decided to mix it with Bols Genever, the original form of gin used in cocktails in the 1800s; it’s a little off the radar these days. It’s been served at 1105 since we won; friends in New York, Sydney, London, Tokyo – and, or course, at bars in Copenhagen – serve it, too.

The Copenhagen Cocktail recipe

50ml Bols Genever
20ml Cherry Heering Liqueur
20ml fresh pressed lime juice
20ml sugar syrup (Monin)
1 dash Angostura bitters

Shake with ice, then strain into a martini glass. Carefully add a slice of organic orange peel so that it floats on top of the your cocktail.
