The Rest of the World in My Oven: Beverages
Thank you so much to all the bloggers who let me share their posts! I wish I could taste all of your amazing recipes, but they're on my list now and I'm sure they'll find a way into my kitchen soon!
|Sangria - from Minimalist Baker
A sweet wine and fresh fruits - the Spanish have been combining it for hundreds of years. Dana stayed true to the Spanish spirit of simplicity by using only 5 ingredients. Mix & match with your own fruits and enjoy!
|Sharbat 'e Sekanjabin - from Fig & Quince
A sharbat is nothing more than a cool, aromatic syrup-based drink. This one from F&Q is a minty honey syrup. Dilute in iced water and you've got a hot Persian Summer in a cup. It can even be used as a dip for lettuce!
|Michelada - from cupcakes and cashmere
It could be good for hangovers: this tart and savoury Mexican cocktail, but you can't be sure. What is definitely is, is a spiced beer, tomato juice & lime combination with a whole range of extra ingredients such as chillies and hot sauces.
|Bread Kvas - from Natasha's Kitchen
This might be the most interesting beverage of all of them - a drink made of bread, yeast and raisins. Kvas is quite a popular drink in Russia and Ukraine and should taste something like a sweet, non-alcohol beer. Will you dare try it?
|Shamrock Shake - from Two Healthy Kitchens
During Saint Patrick's day, for one day only, everything will turn green: including the drinks! Doesn't this green milkshake remind you of the green shamrocks in the Irish highlands? Obviously THK wouldn't be THK if they didn't health things up along the way!
|Fura da nono - from Dobby's Signature
Fura da nono is basically a spiced fermented milk-yogurt with several types of flours. It's the only beverage of the bunch that should be eaten with a spoon (does it still count as a beverage?), but will that stop you from trying this Nigerian drink?
|Iced Masala Chai - from indian simmer
It's a black tea with various Indian spices and herbs and topped off with milk (which is optional!). For those of you who love Masala Chai, but would die, melt or evaporate drinking a hot cup of tea in summer: indian simmer shares a lovely recipe for the iced version!
The ironic part here is that I was shocked I only shared 7 drinks, so decided to make an extra round-up and came up with another whopping 6 beverages. I'm sure in a world of roughly 196 countries, I'm missing out on a traditional drink or two at the moment.
But who knows really?
I hope you enjoyed the second round-up post I made ever! (two in a row practically counts as one!) Let me know what you think and I hope you have a lovely week!
