Stockholm bar reviews - Cantineros and AG
The bar scene in Stockholm is very much alive at the moment, there seems to be new cocktail bars opening all the time. I just hope that there's room for all of them, considering that Stockholm is quite small. Anyway, two great recently opened bars I want to share with you are:
|Bacon-infused Old Fashioned @ AG|
I also had the opportunity to take a sip of most other cocktails on the menu, but I definitely need to go back as soon as possible to try them out for real - especially the barrel aged Boulevardier. In conclusion, the new cocktail menu is a very nice upgrade for AG - and I can easily see myself stopping by for a cocktail or two on a regular basis, even though the location is a bit off for me. Well done!
The cocktail menu is quite extensive, mainly rum based, with different Daiquiris, Mojitos and lots of other fun stuff. Some of my favourites so far are La Choca Nostra (Tequila Old Fashioned with cacao liqueur), Mai Tai (true to the original but with a bourbon float), Tongue Tickler (Rum, Chartreuse, St-Germain, falernum and cucumber) and Parraty (Cinnamon-infused Cachaca, white peach and probably something else).
I can only imagine how great Cantineros will be in summer, when you can sit outside and sip on a cocktail perfectly executed by one of the suitably dressed up bartenders, but it's definitely a place to visit anytime you're in the mood for a great cocktail. Highly recommended!
