Spirit Scene: DESTRUCTION’s SCHMIER’s favourite cocktail

Yes, you read it correctly. Thrash metal vocalist, Schmier, loves cocktails.  In our chat last night, Schmier stated that in Germany, “we have a big wave of cocktails with gin nowadays”.

Schmier’s favourite one at the moment is: “Gin, lemon, a little bit of lemonade, then you put some ginger in also and some rosemary, a bit of rosemary. And you make it round, you put a touch of caramel. A touch of caramel, then you have this spicy ginger, caramelly sweetness and then the freshness also of the little rosemary in there, amazing.”

On their upcoming tour don’t be too surprised to see Schmier behind the bar making us a cocktail or five. “I will do it no problem,” he states. “I’m a very good bartender. I used to have my own restaurant for many years so I’m experienced.”

However, I am positive that most Destruction fans would simply prefer him to be onstage.
