2 cocktails from Albania

The 21 Bar-Cocktail


In August 2019 I was in Albania. I took the ferry from Corfu in Greece to the port of Sarandë in Albania. Arrived in Sarandë, the bartender Klajdi from the 21 Bar was already waiting for me. In the 21 Bar Klajdi showed me the production of two different cocktails. The first cocktail has the same name as the cocktail bar: 21 Bar Cocktail. The second Cocktail is called Mrs PINK You can find the 21 Bar in Sarandë in the Rruga Skënderbeu near the harbor and the waterfront. The decor is very exceptional and made with love. You can sit inside and outside. And the cocktails are really excellent and the staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. So let’s go to Albania!.

  • Ursus
  • lime juice (freshly squeezed)

Mrs. PINK Cocktail


In the 21 Bar in Sarandë I really liked it. That’s why Klajdi showed me a second cocktail. His name is Mrs. PINK and tastes wonderful. Which maybe was because I love Sambuca. So if you ever come to Sarandë, I highly recommend the 21 Bar.
