War is over

Must confess - I've never been a huge fan of cocktails. For one they tend to be overcomplicated and I can never decide which one to get, plus almost always they give me a huge hangover. Luckily every now and then one's convictions are challenged and one may be forced to do a 180. After all these years I finally understood why I suffered from the aforementioned afflictions - as simplistic as it sounds; I have never been to a good bar. 

A couple of weeks ago I was asked to photograph the newest range of cocktails for Bar am Lützowplatz. It's not what I usually do but, hey, why not? I used to assist a great food photographer who has taught me a lot of the tricks of the trade and a shoot like this could be a nice exercise, I thought. It was brilliant. Not only did I get to work with people who are absolutely passionate about what they do and learn more about the art of mixing, but also got to try some of their delicious cocktails. I'm happy to declare that my war with cocktails is officially over and I will definitely be going back for more.
