A Copenhagen Cocktail please!This summer Copenhagen has had a cocktail named after it, the Copenhagen Cocktail. At a competition arranged by VisitCopenhagen a number of cocktails were created and tasted, and the winner, with the right to be called the Copenhagen Cocktail, consisting of these ingredients, was chosen:
- 5 cl. Bols Genever
- 2 cl. Cherry Heering Liqueur
- 2 cl. freshly squeezed lime juice
- 2 cl. sugar syrup (eg Monin)
- 1 splash of Angostura Bitters
Shaken with ice cubes. Served without ice.
Peel a slice of orange and decorate the cocktail with it, to make the orange flavor float on top of the cocktail.
You can be sure to find the Copenhagen Cocktail at 1105,
Umami and the bar of FIRST Hotel Skt. Petri.

Larger picture sizes in Copenhagen PicturesUser statistics show that visitors to Copenhagen Pictures have increasingly large screens, and this means that the pictures' size on Copenhagen Pictures can be increased. The number of visitors using dial-up connections is also very low, most people use cable or some other high speed connection now, so pictures' size can also be increased when it comes to kilobytes.
One such new page with larger pictures is the Rosenborg Castle - Rosenborg Slot page which was added to Copenhagen Pictures yesterday. The top or first picture is slightly smaller than the rest to allow space for the ad block next to it, but otherwize the picture width has been increased from 600 pixel to 800 pixel, and the portrait pictures are now 400 pixel wide and 600 pixel high.
This is still something of an experiment and if you have an opinion on how the larger pictures work, please leave a comment here, it'll be read with much interest.

Credit card payment costs get loweredFrom July 1 2008, the credit card transaction cost when shopping in Denmark will be lowered. Today the cost of a credit card transaction can be up to 5.75% of the purchase including VAT, after July 1 it will be a maximum of 3.75%. The price for using debet cards wil be a maximum of 0.3% of the purchase or a maximum of DKK 4 per transaction.
Danish shops and businesses have been somewhat reluctant to offer payment by credit cards till now because of the high transaction cost, and today about one in every three shops offers to take credit cards as payment. The lowered price is expected to bring this figure up to every two out of three shops.
