Valentine’s Day is coming closer. The day where the tables for two in restaurants are completely booked, the day where red roses are mostly sold out in flower shops and jewelry stores sell loads of golden rings ;)
Eierlikör is a must-have for Easter. Many people say it is something only grannies drink, but I think it is really delicious and can be used in so many ways! And if you make Eierlikör yourself, it is even better!
I wanted to post this recipe some weeks ago actually – there were some days, where it was already very cold here in Berlin and a good shot of vitamins was necessary…. well then it got nice and warm again :P
I already made eggnog for Christmas last year – I know that is something you can buy in stores – except here in Germany ;) So making something like that makes sense if you want it and can’t get it elsewhere.
The Eierlikör on the other hand is something you can shop here year round in every supermarket – we Germans have a long tradition on drinking that (or better said nice old ladies have a long tradition on drinking that). Anyways, you get it everywhere, so why make it? Well… here comes my standard answer: Because you will get something much better than the stuff you can buy in the store! That applies for many things actually. Sometimes it is cheaper to make it at home, sometimes it is a bit more work to do than just go to a supermarket and buy it – but in almost all cases the result you get at home is much better than the pre-made stuff and you always know 100% what’s in it – which you can’t be with store bought stuff. So here is my advice – make more things at home. It is easy – as easy as making this Eierlikör :)
I lived for some time in the US when I was (a bit) younger and had the chance to celebrate Christmas over there couple times. As many probably know, Christmas Season starts pretty early in the stores, so you can buy all the stuff you need weeks in advance – if not even months ;) Same thing happens here in Germany now – but that is not the topic :)
Hi, my name is Marc. I'm a graphic designer.
I love my job, but in between I love to bake and try new things in the kitchen. A lot of my friends and colleagues encourage me to bake - for a very simple reason: they get the leftovers - and it seems they like it most of the time ;)
