As most bartenders around the world, our Bar Manager, Yiannis Karavias is understandably reluctant when it comes to sharing his cocktail recipes. “Making a cocktail is an artform and I’ve been crafting and testing flavors and mixes all year in order to provide Canaves Oia guests the best cocktails” Yiannis says. One of the signature recipes of Canaves Oia bars is Copper Bullet that can be easily made at home. Here, rye whiskey makes way for bourbon in this update on the original cocktail, the Old Fashioned. Grab a shaker and by adding a homemade simple syrup, ginger water and lemon juice, you can enjoy a proper Copper Bullet on a lazy afternoon!
