Too cold to barbeque so we're going to continue out theme of "Wolf" from yesterday! Here's a selection of drinks that you might enjoy whilst contemplating your next foray into the great outdoors for a barbeque! The first is a latvian liqueur that uses caraway and aniseed to give it a unique flavour and taste. You'll enjoy sipping this delicious drink in front of a roaring open fire! It's used in several cocktails including the Foxhound one (Presumably because aniseed is used in drag hunts maybe!)
* 1 1/2 oz. Brandy
* 2 teaspoons Cranberry juice
* 1 teaspoon Kummel
* 1 teaspoon Lemon juice
Mix with ice, shake and serve after straining (You strain so the ice doesn't dilute the drink... but it should be nice and cold after being shook up with the ice!)
Kummel is known to be good with vodka too!
Again with the wolf theme - the Silver Bullet cocktail contains Kummel
* 1 oz. Kummel
* 1 oz. Gin
* 1 tbs. Lemon juice
Again shake with ice and strain to serve.
Enjoy this or a nice glass of Wolf Blass wine - Wolf Blass wine is from Australia and is a really good choice of wine if you're starting out drinking wine!
