Vermeire Sunset.

A drink by Ben Belmans in honour of Robert Vermeire. We particularly like the unusual combination of gin and tequila.

40 ml Gin Mare
20 ml Calle 23 Reposado tequila
10 ml Schladerer maraschino
10 ml Chartreuse Verte

Preparation: Stirred. Sprinkle with lemon zest.

We got to know the Vermeire Sunset at the Market Place of the Bar Convention Berlin 2014. It was created by Ben Belmans, who mixed it at this event. He named his drink after the Belgian bartender Robert Vermeire. The latter worked in London and published his book “Cocktails – How to Mix Them” in 1922. In the same year, he returned to Belgium and opened his bar “Robert’s”.

Hi, I'm Armin and in my spare time I want to promote bar culture as a blogger, freelance journalist and Bildungstrinker (you want to know what the latter is? Then check out "About us"). My focus is on researching the history of mixed drinks. If I have ever left out a source you know of, and you think it should be considered, I look forward to hearing about it from you to learn something new. English is not my first language, but I hope that the translated texts are easy to understand. If there is any incomprehensibility, please let me know so that I can improve it.
