Yes, even the Norwegians like to carouse. The best place to do it in Bergen is the No Stress bar (mentioned in a previous post). Once you find a place like that, you must return—even if it is Friday night.

The bar was way more crowded and raucous, and I am not sure that the people behind it were not stressed. But boy was it fun.

They are almost out of Pappy van Winkle 20. Alas.

We also had a Pisco Sour, a Last Word, and some fernet branca—all classics. Video and pictures through google glass.

Isaac Staflin created a challenge cocktail we’ll call the First Time (since it has cherry and is Gøran’s first cocktail):
2 cl Heering
2 cl Gin (try swapping in Genever for more complexity)
2 dashes simple syrup
2 cl lemon juice
Rinse the glass with a smokey whiskey and angostura bitters. Shake and serve up. Flame a lemon peel and drop in. (Could also use a real luxardo cherry in the bottom.)
