Cocktail Foodpairing at ShakingSupper

Tatjana van Onna & Rita's Rose cocktails

Tatjana van Onna & Rita’s Rose cocktails

Matching food with wine has been done for centuries and even pairings with beer aren’t that refreshing nowadays. ShakingSupper is the first event in the Netherlands where we pair food with cocktails.

ShakingSupper

For over a year now I’ve been hosting ShakingSupper, my own foodpairing event at Supperclub in Amsterdam. They give me the freedom to create a signature night filled with lovely food & cocktail pairings and performers of all sorts. The beautiful dj’s Tamore and Sheila Hill are booked on a regular basis and Tatjana van Onna, the Dutch queen of pole dancing, has also been showing off some of her tricks in the past.

ShakingSupper is a night to remember with the dishes being served while you’re relaxing on the beds and pillows, sipping your cocktail and a massage therapist is giving you a foot rub. What is there not to love? Read More

There’s no Mexican Movie Night without Margarita Sours

Magic Margaritas Sours

Just the other week, I found myself on the couch together with my girlfriend, craving Mexican food and Margaritas. Back when we were in Bali, we’ve tried lots and lots of different Margarita cocktails and once home, I tried to fine tune my signature Margarita recipe. What I ended up doing was actually making a combination of a classic Margarita and a sour, so let’s just call it a Margarita Sour 😉

Missy Mint recipe

Albert Heijn Future Store

Last Wednesday my alarm went off very, very early. My ride, including the lovely Florence van der Poel, was waiting in front of my house at 7 am to take me to Eindhoven. 1,5 hours and some coffee cravings later, we arrived at the Albert Heijn XL Future Store. This new store was about to be opened and this wasn’t possible without some nice refreshments & bites on the side.

Dilmah Tea Cocktails

Dilmah has been available in Albert Heijn stores throughout the Netherlands for over a year now. To celebrate the occasion of opening up AH’s first Future Store, I’ve created a non-alcoholic cocktail with Dilmah tea to hand out to all the store staff and their customers. It’s a quite easy to reproduce at home recipe, so ‘do try it’! Read More
