Afterwork Drinks

nachtmann Aspen

Sometimes, after a long day at the office, you just want to settle in a big comfy chair and enjoy a nice drink. Not just a beer or a glass of wine, but something a bit more refined. Whatever the beverage of your choice may be, we can guarantee it will taste better in an appropriate and classy glass, such as the Nachtmann tumblers.

The Bavarian company is famous for their crystal glasses. With more than 180 years of experience, skill and tradition, it is safe to say they make absolute quality glassware. Nachtmann is besides their quality also famous for their design. Their tumblers, long drinks and decanters have a beautiful classic design that will look perfect in the house as well. Each glass is uniquely cut out of unleaded crystal glass which make them a great addition to any dinner, table or bar. The hardened glass is scratch free and literally crystal clear. To inspire you, we have listed our favourite cocktails. Cheers!


Dark rum                60 ml dark rum
Ginger beer            150 ml ginger beer
1 lime                       30 ml lime juice and a wedge to garnish

Optional: a splash of sugar water and a slice of ginger.

A Dark ‘n Stormy might be the perfect autumn cocktail. The rich taste of the rum and the spicy ginger beer is a joy for cold and rainy days. The key to nailing a Dark ‘n Stormy is the precise ratio between the spice of the ginger beer and the richness of the rum. Depending on which brands you use, you may want to play around with the proportions. Combine the rum, the ginger beer, and the lime juice in a glass full of ice cubes. Stir and garnish with a lime wedge.


Gin Mare                50 ml
Tonic                       120 ml
Squeeze of lime juice
Lime wedge to garnish
2 thyme sprigs

A Gin&Tonic is always a good idea. But instead of going for the standard version of this classic drink, why not spice it up a bit? This version of the Gin&Tonic is made for autumn. Fresh but spicy and with a lovely taste. You could also try it with herbs like basil or rosemary. Fill a glass of your choice with ice cubes. Pour in the gin and top it off with tonic. Stir and garnish with a lime wedge and some thyme sprigs.
