Off to Cyprus. To Paphos, to be precise. Paphos is not the largest city in Cyprus, it really doesn’t have the best beach in the world and the sights can be counted om one hand. But Paphos has probably the best cocktail bar in Cyprus – probably as compensation. And I was there. At Mr. Tippler in the picturesque old town of Paphos. There the bartender Greg welcomed me in a friendly manner at the entrance of Mr. Tippler to show me one of his signature cocktails: the Angel`s Grog. The bar is very modern and tastefully decorated and has many exceptional cocktails on the menu. And the staff is really great. If you ever come to Paphos, be sure to go to Mr. Tippler in Kosta Georgiou 3 and try some of the signature cocktails from Mr. Tippler. Perhaps one of the best things to do in Cyprus besides the good weather, and give Greg my regards.
- Crushed Ice
- Cool the clay pot with crushed ice
- Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice and shake.
- Shake well and strain into clay pot filled with new crushed ice.
- Add some more crushed ice to top of the glass.
- Garnish the Angel´s Grog!
- Cheers from Cyprus!
Two things make the Angel`s Grog cocktail something very special. First, the cocktail is served in a clay pot made exclusively for Mr. Tippler by a local Cypriot pottery. Second, the Mastiha ingredient. Mastiha is a sweet liqueur produced with the mastikha resin from the Greek island of Chios. It has a distinctive flavor, reminiscent of pine and herbs. It is claimed to have medicinal properties and to aid digestion.
