Spring is here: Salt & Silver on twisted Gin & Tonics

Sponsored by Tanqueray

Gin and Tonic is rightfully one of the most popular drinks around: its concept is simple and straightforward, and can easily be upgraded by adding one or three ingredients. However, I think it should always be based on a high quality gin with distinct botanical notes. Tanqueray was launched in 1830, and is still produced after a fiercely guarded recipe. Its key botanicals are juniper, coriander, angelica root and liquorice, with a strong juniper note. In order to explore the possibilities of G&T, Jo and Cosy, the two creatives behind Hamburg’s uber-popular food pop-up Salt & Silver, traveled country. Inspired by Charles Tanqueray’s six years of developing the perfect London Dry Gin, they joined forces with local chefs and bartenders to reinvent the classic drink and pair it with locally inspired dishes. In Munich, beer liqueur and sweet mustard were used to make a real Bavarian version, in Hamburg, Paola Labansat added grapes and citrus thyme, which was served with ceviche, fish tacos, and basil ice cream. Read on to find out how Berlin did in this challenge and get some inspiration for your next G&T creation…

Bold in Berlin: Bread & Butter by Zalando

While we’re currently deep into summery sleepiness and holiday talk, there’s nothing like the sweet anticipation of September, when the city reawakens with loads of events and parties. And this year we’re in for a treat:: the second instalment of the now better than ever public Bread & Butter by Zalando is coming up, this time the Festival of Style and Culture has a banging motto: BOLD. And while fashion is still the main focus – with brands like Viktor&Rolf, Topshop, Jil Sander Navy, Nike, and more –, music  – Bilderbuch, Hannah Faith, Yung Hurn and Quay Dash – and FOOD will make things even more exciting. A best-of street food vendors from Berlin, Germany, and Europe will feed us burgers and baos, coffee and ice cream, and loads more during the three day festival from Sept 1st to 3rd. Check the full program here, and don’t forget to order your tickets now! And for those who can’t attend: All fashion shows, talks, and selected music highlights are live streamed on B&&B’s channels.

Coming Up: Warm Up 3

Winter is coming and, in Berlin, winter is shit. It’s awful, unnecessary, and too long, and it generally makes life very hard (and complaining easy). Of course I say this as a person who is actually able to afford a decent coat and a cosy house to cuddle up in when temperatures drop below bearable, but there are too many people who are simply not that lucky. Many lack the funds to buy warm clothing for all their family members, and many don’t even have a house with working heating. Which is why I am delighted to announce a new round of my beloved clothing-donation rally: Stil in Berlin’s WARM UP 3!
