Curtain Club Amsterdam | Cocktail season is open!

comment 0

So it’s almost the end of April, and it’s freezing and hailing. When it feels like we’re stuck in a neverending winter, what are we supposed to do?

You read my mind. Drink cocktails, of course!

Put aside, for the moment, the cozy comfort of coffee or tea. There’s nothing like a fruity cocktail to transport us to a warm and sunny climate. Think caipirinhas in Ipanema, pina coladas in Puerto Rico, or margaritas in Mexico.

Cocktail Season

To officially kick off cocktail season, that’s exactly what the folks at De Kuyper did. For one night, The Curtain Club in Amsterdam was transformed into Flamingo Paradise, a fantasy land filled with tropical vibes, killer beats, and of course, amazing cocktails. Totally my kind of place.

World Flair Bartending Champion and De Kuyper ambassador Nicolas Saint Jean also showed off his smooth moves while making some amazing cocktails. I’ll have to work on my flairtending at home, but practice makes perfect right?

Want to run away to Flamingo Paradise in the comfort of your own home? These easy cocktail recipes from De Kuyper should help you escape in just a few shakes of a cocktail shaker. Definitely cheaper, quicker, and yummier than booking a flight to the Bahamas. Have fun!
