A Traveling Mixologists needs your help ...

If you know what is behind  THE TRAVELING MIXOLOGISTS, I would like to ask you for help. I just pulled out my old bartenders traveling bag, which I used to use for this events and became a little bit sentimental...

And I realized that I have lost most of the videos and photos I had from our Traveling Mixologists events. I use to store all the videos at sevenload, which used to be the german youtube. But this b********* (swearword) at sevenloads have decided time ago to delete all old content and it looks like I somehow mist this notification. And because of severals mac changes and some harddisk break downs and one thievery I somehow realized that I missed most of the video, photo footage .... damn!

So, I would like to ask you: Do you still have Photos or Videos from our Traveling Mixologists sessions?

If so, I would be very happy if you can send them to me. Email, dropbox, wetransfer or upload to youtube etc... whatever. Please let me know at joerg {at.} jrgmyr.net or any chanel you…

R.I.P Charlie Haden - thank you for your help building my dream

When you build a bar, you need lots of things. You need money for sure. But that is just money. You need time, patience, luck, stainless steel, wood, pipes, light and paint. You need to fight against people. And you need to make a team. You need to find friends for your bar - people who love your  bar. Your day needs 28 hours. You need glasses, shakers, ice and people. You need humor and you need to laugh, best about yourself. And you need music.

And while you build your bar, you need to find the time to sit down, late at night, on your own, and listen to "your" music. You need to day and night dream and imagine how this all will feel when your bar is open and how you will run it. You have to close your eyes and dream it. While listening to "your" music.

When I build my barLe Lion • Bar de Paris I have very often listen to Charlie Haden. And very often to my favorite Album of all times.  "Night and The City" by Charlie Haden and Kenny Baron, Recorded at …

Sommer 2014 - Die fantastische Buttermilch Margarita und fünf weitere Tequila Drinks

Vorgestern hatte ich das Vergnügen einem alten Freund einen Gefallen zu erweisen. Chris Spake war in der Stadt und gab einen Workshop über "seinen" Tequila: Patron. Wir kennen uns nunmehr 6 Jahre, hatten uns lange nicht mehr gesehen, und so war es mir eine Freude, ihm mit ein paar Drinks zur Seite zu stehen.

Ich will ehrlich bleiben: Tequila ist nicht meine größte Leidenschaft. Ich mag Tequila. Nur ist der Löwe nicht gerade ein Schlachtfeld der Agaven-Experimentierfreude. Und so serviere ich in der Regel ein paar gute Tequila Klassiker. Meine Margaritas sind glaube ich durchaus trinkbar, die Tommys ein oft servierter "Everbodies Darling". Die Sazerac-, Old Fashioned- und Negroni Abwandlungen mit Tequila immer wieder gern gemixte Drinks. Und im Boilerman servieren wir,  zu meiner Freude sehr erfolgreich, einen perfekten El Diablo und wie ich befürchte den besten Tequila Sunrise, zumindest im Hamburger Grenzgebiet von Eppendorf zu Eimsbüttel.

Solides, gereiftes Tequ…
