Ingredients

  • 4 cl Scotch whisky
  • 2 cl sherry (Fino)
  • 1-2 cl honey syrup
  • 2 cl fresh lemon juice
  • 1 piece star anise

Preparation

This amber cocktail created by Schumann in 2006 is named after the men's fragrance of the same name by Werner Baldessarini, which Charles Schumann himself modelled. It's quite easy to prepare if you use the right ingredients: pour everything into a tumbler and stir over ice cubes, adding the star anise to finish.

Ingredients

  • 5 cl bourbon
  • 1 sugar cube
  • Dashes of Angostura bitters
  • Soda
  • Lemon
  • Orange
  • Cherry on a stick

Preparation

The Old Fashioned is deemed by its fans to be simply irreplaceable, and despite its name it'll probably never go out of fashion. This is how Charles Schumann prepares it. Soak the sugar cube in the Angostura bitters, then add fresh orange and lemon quarters and muddle together. Add the bourbon, stir well and add ice cubes. Top up with soda or water, stir again and enjoy in a tumbler.

Ingredients

  • 4-6 cl whisky
  • Water (or Soda)

Preparation

A classic for purists who know that you can make something great even if you start off with little. In its purity, the Mizuwari is very much a product of Charles Schumann himself: unswerving sense of style, self-confidence, concentration on the essentials. It's best to use a light Japanese whisky for this and mix it with a still mineral water that's not too soft, in an approximate ratio of 1:1 (or to taste).

Ingredients

  • 6 cl rye whiskey
  • 1 sugar cube
  • Dashes of Peychaud's bitters
  • Dashes of Pernod
  • Lemon peel
  • Water or Soda

Preparation

Many different versions of the Sazerac are popular, whether you prefer it with whiskey and brandy - or with Pernod, as Schumann interprets it. This is how you prepare it. Crush the sugar cube soaked in Peychaud using the bar spoon, then add the spirits. Mix everything well and sprinkle with lemon zest. Then top up with water or soda and serve in a tumbler.

Ingredients

  • 4 cl bourbon
  • 2 cl lemon juice
  • 1 cl sugar syrup
  • 1 bar spoon icing sugar
  • Cherry on a stick

Preparation

"The Whiskey Sour is the one reason why so many people dare to drink whiskey at all," says Charles Schumann. And of course, this cocktail is also a popular classic at "Schumann's". This is how you can make it at home. Mix the ingredients well in a shaker with ice cubes and strain into a tumbler - then add a cherry to finish off your little work of art.
