Cocktail O’Clock with Njam & Grohe

Hi guys!

It’s Friday! Time for some fabulous Cocktails!

A little while ago, I was invited to a Cocktail workshop with Manuel Wouters from Njam and Grohe. That last one presented their newest product to us: Grohe Blue Home. It’s a super innovative tap that gives you fresh, filtered water. Sparkling or not. How cool is that! πŸ˜€ With just one push, you can choose which one you want. Don’t like still water but not a fan of strong sparkling water? No problem, just press the sparkling button first and then push the other one. Tadaaaa: medium sparkling water!


How that’s possible? The Grohe Blue Home tap comes with a small reservoir you can easily put away under the sink – and still have room for other stuff. The reservoir contains a filter and a bottle with CO2 for the sparkling water. Bottles empty? Just send them back to Grohe and they will give you new ones in return. Good for you, good for the environment πŸ˜‰ If our tap breaks down, I’m definitely getting myself a Grohe Blue Home!

You can use water to drink or to make some fabulous Cocktails! And then drink πŸ˜‰

Manuel Wouters from Njam made us 5 different Cocktails and Mocktails I’m happily sharing some if them with you guys! It’ll be the perfect start of your weekend AND they’re all made with normal ingredients you probably already have or can buy at your local supermarket. Yes!

I chose this cocktail to be the third because I didn’t think I would like it. It has Bourbon Whiskey in it and let’s just say my trip to Scotland didn’t end with liters of Whisky xD It wasn’t really my cup of tea. The cupcakes in Edinborough however… Let’s not get carried away here Sarah! Focus.

What we need for 1 glass:

  • 3 cl pear coulis
  • 2 cl lemon juice
  • 2 cl liquid sugar
  • 4,5 cl Bourbon Whiskey
  • 3 cl fresh water
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • mixing glass
  • shaker
  • strainer
  • ice
  • cocktail glass (tumbler)

How to:

  1. Put all ingredients in a with ice filled mixing glass
  2. Put the shaker on top and shake for about 10 seconds
  3. Fill the cocktail glass with ice
  4. Strain the cocktail over the glass
  5. Garnish with the cinnamon stick
  6. Serve

Which one would you like to try? I think the last two are perfect for Fall. The first one is just perfect for any season πŸ˜‰ You will probably disagree on that but I just loved him so much I could drink it any day.

Thank you Manuel, Njam & Grohe for this awesome day and recipes! All pictures belong to Njam.

Have a delicious day ❀
