  • The big mistake which turned into a beautiful drink.
  • Pt. 3/3 of the Black Caipirinha series from @cafeundbarnorah. The garnish on Norah's signature drink changes with the season, and in the fall she uses a physalis. Not only does it taste delicious, the tiny orange fruit feels like the perfect pairing with the changing weather behind the windows of the cafe.
  • It's called a Black Caipirinha for a reason 🖤🖤🖤. Norah, bartender, baker, and owner at @cafeundbarnorah sees her cocktail menu as a collection of memories and experiences rather than a list of drinks. After 10 years of traveling and living in Madeira, Portugal, Spain, Tunisia, and the Canary Islands, she returned to the very street where she grew up to build her own bar. She insists that if I want to find another Black Caipirinha, I'll have to catch a plane to Madeira 😏
  • A Black Caipirinha by @cafeundbarnorah in Berlin. A cafe and bakery by day, a cocktail bar by night, this beautiful space feels like a golden coastal refuge in Prenzlauer Berg. More to come on Norah and her Portuguese-inspired menu.
  • I took a break from mixing martinis to do some dragon hunting and visit perhaps the most impressive art gallery in South Africa. Click the link on my homepage to read the full article on the Martini Mandate blog.
  • Deep in the Black Forest! Good beer and good friends!
