Pinkies up! Botaanik is our favorite cocktail bar in Tallinn. Like the name implies, the drinks are quite floral in nature, made from organic ingredients and fresh syrups handmade by the botanist, Andres Siem, himself. We were swept off our feet by the vintage furniture and charming interior design – and then we took a sip of our first drink. The rosemary strawberry vodka sour tastes of summer, of fresh berries bursting in your mouth; it’s tart and refreshing with a wonderful savory note from the rosemary. We also loved the Mediterranean vodka gimlet, with bergamot, kaffir lime, vodka, and lemon. For the negroni lovers – you’re in good hands. Siem has a whole page of creative variations on the Italian classic, including one made with Japanese umeshu (plum liqueur).
