About this website
This is the personal website of Rob West, a .NET web developer base in Oxford, UK. I'm currently working for the digital agency Jaywing. You will find information on my interests which include cocktails, coffee, and the philosophy of cognitive science. Hopefully you might even find some of it useful if you have found your way here.
The Cocktail Database
There are some great books on cocktails and cocktail making, but one thing they can't do is tell you what you can make with the ingredients you have to hand. That's where my cocktail database comes in. You can simply search the cocktails or select the ingredients you have and it will tell you what you can make. Genius if I say so myself!
- La Bicyclette
- Invented by bartender Jamie Boudreau the cocktail is named in honour of the way the elderflowers in the St-Germain are delivered to market by bicycle. St-Germain is a great liqueur and works wonderfully in this cocktail.
- 1 1/2 shots Plymouth gin
- 3/4 shot Sweet vermouth
- 1/4 shot St-Germain Elderflower Liqueur
