I nya TWWP delar jag med mig av en liten glimt från mitt hem, och hur jag gör min favoritdrink – Dirty Martini. Här är några av frågorna och svaren, enjoy! Och skaka ihop en egen ikväll!
Why is Dirty Martini your favourite drink?
”It’s chic and strong but not too perfect. Like me!”
When was your first Dirty Martini moment?
”It was at the restaurant Les Halles in New York in 2003 before I had dinner. A fillet de boeuf that I remember to this day.”
For which occasions is a Dirty Martini the best drink to have?
”It really boost your appetite, so to have one before you eat great. But I also love to just have one at home before I go out, or actually whenever.”
How do you make yours?
”I’ll chill a martini glass with ice and water. Then I’ll put 5 cl gin, 1 cl vermoth and 1 cl olive brine and ice in a shaker and shake for about seven seconds. I do like to shake my martinis since it’s fun! Then I remove the ice from the glass and stain the drink into it. Sometimes I’ll add more brine, it depends how salty I want it. Sometimes I also add a few drops of lemon juice. I very seldom put lemon zest into the coctail, though. Then I’ll add three, always three, olives. I have a house rule: Anybody that comes into my apartmant is offered a dirty martini, no matter what time in the day. Most recent it was the metal band Mayhem who stopped by for a cocktail before their Stockholm gig. They wanted it extra dirty, which made me very happy since that’s the way I prefer them myself.”
What do you add?
”That’s the great thing – the olives are already there. Drink and snacks in the same cocktail!”
Best company for a night out?
”Great shoes that makes you feel hot, but won’t make your feet hurt. My best buddies is Manolo Blahnik’s BB-pump. There’s not a high heeled shoe with a more comfortable fit out there. Hear me, ladies!”
How about your amazing decorating style.
”I like wood, I like black. I add things I love. Plants are important, especially mother-in-law’s tounges. And always dark floors! In the early 90´s I came across Juergen Teller´s photographs, probably in i-D, and I got so into them. When I got myself my first apartment I bought one of his books, found my favoruite pic and just blew it up. It has been in my home ever since. When my son was younger he used to point at it and say ”Mummy”. I truly wish I had had my ass photographed by Juergen Teller, but unfortunatley … No.”
Best fashion buy?
”My Cabas bag by Céline is worth mentioning since I probably used it every day since I bought it three years ago. I use it for work, to the gym, when grocery shopping, when travelling, when going to the beach … It’s just a great bag and I haven’t grown tired of it even though I’m using it so much. But then again, I’m not that interested in bags. I’m a shoe girl.”
Do you have a style icon?
”George Powell, Stacy Peralta and The Velvet Underground.”
Do you have a philosophy you live by?
”I´ll quote Fleetwood Mac: ’Go your own way’.”
When are you the happiest?
What do you fear?
”Well, let’s just say that I’ll probably never going to have a stroll around the harbour of Tangér ever again.”
