lillet-rose-cocktail-diy-de-quelle-planete-es-tu-05Ever since discovering Lillet Rosé at their launch party in Paris last fall, I have fallen hard for their cocktails. Lillet Rosé is a refreshing beverage with a bit more punch than your classic wine – it is what they call an aperitif wine – equally delightful when it’s on the rocks with a slice of orange or mixed in with other flavors and liquors to make for a fantastically crafted and peachy colored cocktail.

With Olivia on a Friday night in, we decided to add a few of our favorite things and make our own little fruity cocktail inspired by one of the classic Lillet Rosé cocktails.

We probably should have put the ice cubes in the mixer and the fruit afterwards, but hey, it’s all about learning! Also, add the tonic water at the very end for better results. Enjoy!

Sometimes a little cocktail on a week night does the soul good. If you’re looking for a place to get a delicious cocktail in a sublime atmosphere, I’ve got the place for you: The Club.

I discovered The Club a little over a year ago (shown previously here), and I must say, it is one of my favorite spots in Paris. The atmosphere is uncomparable – so tasteful – and boy are the guys that run it kind! They’ve even got some delicious bottled beers hidden in their black Smeg, including a personal Colorado favorite, Blue Moon!

I usually go for the Old Fashioned.

The-Cruise-Room-De-quelle-planete-es-tu-04One of Denver’s treasures is the ever so flappy Cruise Room. The Cruise Room is one of my step dad’s favorite places, and is the favorite for a lemon drop martini. With the fam we turned back in time one summer night, to this wonderfully 30s bar hidden inside the Oxford Hotel, for a cocktail and some good tunes.

The bar itself is claimed to be Denver’s first bar, opening after the repeal of the Prohibition in 1933. Believe it or not, it remains untouched, with its original art deco fabulously vintage decor. The lights, the walls, the glasses and the neon lights, the whole feel of being in the Cruise Room made me feel like I was in a 1930′s movie, out on the town.

Not to mention there is an actual jukebox.

Le-Kitsch-De-quelle-planète-es-tu-01Once upon a time when I lived in the Oberkampf area, this bar was one of my favorite places to go for Happy Hour. It still is today, even with a little bit of a treck.

Not only is the interior just the best and basically a knick-knack heaven at Le Kitch, but their cocktails have spunky fresh names. Even when not there for Happy Hour, and their drinks are very reasonably priced, and was a core spot while on my student budget when I first arrived in Paris.

I’d like to also add that this is the sacred location of the green nom nom cocktail that is named after Shrek. I’m not sure you can get much more awesome than that. So, obviously, when miss Rachel was in town, this was on our hit list.

Cold Hand Winery Launch at Le Forvm x PÜR FOOD PARIS by De quelle planète es-tu? :1
One of PUR FOOD PARIS‘s premium and innovative products available in Paris are from the Cold Hand Winery. Denmark’s Cold Hand Winery started in 2010 by Jens, a wine aficionado and fruit wine maker, and Flemming, one of Denmark’s best apple and fruit producers.

Inspired by a family history of wine making, apple growing, heaps of passion, and a dream to make some of the best fruit wines in Denmark, Cold Hand has started to make their dream become reality as many of their products have now won awards at various fruit wine competitions in the UK and in Denmark. Their latest title, for one of their latest experiments with sour dark cherries, was named the “best fruit wine in Denmark”.

On a chilly autumn night this past week at the oldest bar in Paris, Le Forvm and PÜR FOOD PARIS co-hosted the official launch of Cold Hand Winery: Les Vikings Debarquent. This Vikings-themed soirée was about introducing the Cold Hand Winery to the elite clients of Le Forvm in a convivial atmosphere, with a guest-star bartender, the world’s 17th best barman, Hasse Bank Johansen. Hasse competed with his Cold Hand Winery cocktails crafted from his bar, St Paul’s Apothek in Aarhus, Denmark, against two of Le Forvum’s top French barmen, Vincent and Germain, crafting Cold Hand cocktails with Le Forvm’s style and refined selection at the heart. The night was indeed a mixology show, with a a custom cocktail menu consisting of 10 unique opportunities to discover the incredible Cold Hand fruit wines.

The cocktail menu had a little something for everyone’s taste: sweet to sour, and unique combinations (dried fig? Yes please!). Their products, each made from Danish fruits, were the main ingredients in the cocktails of the soirée:

  • Malus X Masculine & Feminam, made from Ingrid Marie & Karin Schneider apples & housemade eau de vie
  • Ribes Nigrum, made from tart blackcurrants
  • Prunus Rosa, made from pure blue prunes
  • Pyrus X, made from 5 types of pears and housemade eau de vie
  • Prunus Nigra, made from acidic black cherries

I personally loved the “Malus X Old Fashioned”… it was the perfect classic bitter cocktail with a sweet twist thanks to Cold Hand’s Malus Masculine X fruit wine.

As for the homies’ favorites: Ana Clara adored the “Long-Stress Reliever” (a delectable mix of sweet and sour, with shaved carrots on top served in a beautiful crystal glass.), Sam enjoyed the “Lowball/Old Fashioned”, and Yann-Yves had the “Euphoric Enhancer” first (served in the most charming cocktail glass). Olivia and Audrey went all out with the “Millionaire” cocktail, suggested by Hasse as the cocktail to end the night (served in a cold glass smothered in cocoa).
