Sometimes you need a little cocktail or long drink at the end of the day. Right? Whenever your day was stressful, you’re allowed to treat yourself. Not every evening, of course. That would make you an alcoholic ;P If you come home from work stressed out every evening you should perhaps consider changing jobs and not make cocktails every evening. If you do it only sometimes everything is fine. I guess. Now and then sipping on a little Frozen Watermelon Mojito with your bestie on the balcony? Absolutely OK, I think!
What would you say if we have a little glass of liquor along with today’s Cookie Friday cookies? Can’t hurt, right?! I mean… the weekend almost started. Come on! ;) Maybe some liquor in the cookies as well? That would be even better. Luckily I am a forward-thinking baker and got that covered already. These little Chocolate Snowballs got some Baileys* inside ;)
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 think I made a little mess when I was trying to prepare a Bloody Mary the other day… Can someone call an ambulance? I think that would be a good idea…. the knife? I don’t know what you mean? What do you mean with “…a Bloody Mary is a drink”? What are you talking….?!
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 :)
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 ;)
