Ok, prepare yourself for an absolutely unique and delicious drink! The Forty Thieves cocktail by Gino Pellarin kind of blew us away already on the first sip. There is so much going on at the same time, but somehow all those ingredients play very well together and marry into something quite spectacular.
The recipe we found in The Nomad Cocktail Book. Yes, we finally bought their cookbook just to get hold of the attached cocktail book. Actually just this single cocktail made it worth it, it's that good!
The Nomad in NYC was recently crowned the world's third best bar, and we are lucky enough to have been there not only one, but two times. The atmosphere in the bar(s) is very sophisticated, elegant and international. The main bar is one of the most beautiful we have ever seen, with hundreds of bottle on display. The cocktail menu is a mouthwatering and very tempting read. We can't wait to go back when visiting NYC again next year.
