AMSTERDAM COMES TO PROVIDENCE DURING THE GREAT BOLS TAKEOVER

By February 6, 2014Rhode Island, Top News

On December 16, 2013 at The Grange in Providence, The Great Bols Takeover took place, headed by East Coast Brand Ambassador Jennifer Ferreira. Her guest bartending shift included classic cocktails with a Dutch twist by use of Bols Genever, such as the “First Word,” where Genever replaces gin as in the classic “Last Word,” the “John Collins” and “Oude Fashioned,” spins-offs of the “Tom Collins” and “Old Fashioned.” Featured was a Dutch tradition of “Koopstje” which translates into “little head butt,” with Budweiser and a Genever shot. Ferreira explained that when drinking, the head touches the glass “to slurp from the top of the tulip glass; it is bad luck to spill any of the precious Genever.”
