The Gift of Giving

Bam, another week gone. Well okay, there is still some time left to muse which presents to place under the tree for your nearest and dearest.  We are happy to continue our round dance of inspiration and are dishing out some more fabulous ideas. Muschi Kreuzberg has created the perfect floor covering for all lovers of the big city and hackers of gentrification: Carpet Diem, a play and matchbox carpet in 200×150 cm that gives the Kottbusser Tor a new, softer side – a tad costly, but love has no price, right? Cork and Piñatex, a material made of pineapple leaves from the Philippines, is what the wallets, backpacks and make-up bags from henties are made of. Turning a by-product of the pineapple harvest into fashion that meets high standards. Sustainable, natural and new. Because leather is so yesterday. If you fancy such a make-up bag, send us an email titled ‚CORKY!‘ to And since we’re in a generous mood anyway: those of you yearning for a night for two in a historic train wagon should send us an email with the subject ‚RAIL REPLACEMENT TRANSPORT‘, also to Because there are five wagons waiting at the Alter Verladeturm in Groß Neuendorf an der Oder, their floor-to-ceiling panorama windows facing the river. That’s what we call functional accommodation at the summerly bosom of nature. And now: bottoms up people – but with style, please. Our lovely Judith swears by the following recipe: Selosoda, the fabulous caffeinated drink made from coffee berries, home-made cascara-white-tea-syrup, Hennessy VS Cognac, white port wine and lemon juice. Oh boy, it’s called Sleepless Panama and if you’ve ever tried it, you know why. Take that, Red Bull whatever! This and five other cocktails can be mixed up in a jiffy with the Whisky, Cognac & Cascara – Sleepless Panama & Elk’s Cordial Cocktail Set by the fabulous Drink Syndikat. Everything included, even the how-to. Cheers my dears!

Can drinking really be a sin?


Can drinking really be a sin?

Yes it can! And it is! Especially when it concerns cheap and nasty booze with a very high alcohol content mixed with an extremely sweet flavour enhancer as could be seen widespread and frequently in the past years. Without rhyme or reason the “well intentioned shot” thus turns into a disgusting sticky mixture somewhere between “sex on the beach” and “barfing in the pub toilet”. YUCK. Exactly! Thanks to bar mixer’s heaven the desire for quality in the consumption of alcoholic beverages appears to be widely increasing in the recent past. Meaning that everywhere classy bars are popping up in the big cities and provide growing numbers of discerning costumers with a gourmet choice in spirits. There is the BRYK Bar in Rykestraße for example, or the Booze Bar in Friedrichshain. Cocktails are allowed a price and Gin Tonic is not any Gin Tonic, long live the Green Fairy and all her disciples! The crowning glory for the solitary connoisseur or for communal consumption at home is now available from the Drink Syndikat. Selected spirits including a harmonious flavoured mixing beverage in wonderful packaging will be delivered to your home when signing up for a Premium Cocktail subscription. The small labelled bottles with instructions for mixing incredibly great cocktails are très chic to look at and one is inclined to leave them just as they are and only take the lid of the box for an occasional peek. That of course would be foolish, and so one begins to carefully mix the components, wondering if this is chemistry or just pure magic. The result is extreme enjoyment instead of simple boozing. We do recommend membership in the Syndikat without any reservation. May you enjoy it just as much as we did. And by the way, whilst we are in champagne – beg your pardon – cocktail mood, we are giving away a XYZ Box to the especially thirsty ones among you. Send an email titled LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT to
