In a few weeks I'll be taking a business trip with stops in Amsterdam and Stockholm. I've never visited either city, and am looking forward to enjoying cocktails in the evenings as well as bringing back some bottles.
Any recommendations for either city?
For cocktail bars I'm interested in upscale places that can cater to my inner cocktail geek. On the spirits side I'm mainly hoping to find unique bitters (potable or not) and eaux de vie that I can't find in the US.
(Mods: I am posting here instead of the Europe board as there has been nothing on this topic on that board and I suspect that the experts on this topic hang out here, not there.)
