This time I was in Malmö / Sweden. Things are different in Sweden. You can’t buy alcohol in the supermarket, there are special state shops called Sytembolaged. Rumor has it that this is why some Swedes make their own alcohol at home. I noticed something similar during my visit to the Care/Of cocktail bar here in Malmö. Bartender Kash prepared the wonderful Manzanas cocktail there. Everything in the Care/Of bar was also homemade. Mezcal infused with coccchi americano and macadamia nuts, homemade grapefruit oleo and pink lady apple juice. Even the ice cubes are made in the Care/Of bar itself. And that’s what you can taste! The Manzanas cocktail has a smoky, nutty aroma and the freshness of apple juice. A really great taste experience.

You will find the Care/Of cocktail bar in the city center next to the Malmö Live Konserthus at Fiskehamnsgatan 11C. There is indoor and outdoor seating with view of Malmö’s canals and the historic city center. The interior is elegant and modern and here too, the owner Stefan made many parts himself. It is a total work of art that you should definitely try on a trip to Malmö.
