Leather Fashioned by Betty Kupsa
A classic never goes out of fashion. With her “Leather Fashioned”, bartender Betty Kupsa translates the love of minimalist design and highest quality into one drink – with winter aromas and red wine, the “Old-fashioned” is reinvented. The cocktail was inspired by the encounter between renowned bartender Betty Kupsa and fashion designer from Hamburg, Stefan Eckert, which took place during the “Hennessy Mixtalks”.
