MUNICH: The blue hour is there to enjoy a cocktail or another summer drink in your favorite bar, and when I’m in Munich, I go to Charles Schumann. Either to the Hofgarten or to his Tagesbar, where barkeeper Flinn’s creativity fulfilled a special request and created new delicious cocktails especially for IRMA and her friends. Most of them are classics, slightly twisted with Finn’s creativity and some are especially made for IRMASWORLD to enjoy at home or with your friends at Schumann’s.
All you need is are the best ingredients, a selection of good glasses (BASIC BAR SELECTION by Charles Schumann, for Schott Zwiesel) and a few minutes to mix it all up.
