After seeing various versions of #Baklava created on the #GreatBritishBakeOff, I thought I'd share a mouth-watering sweet Greek/Cypriot recipe. Shared by Nikki at
What's in a #BrandySour? Regular visitors to #Cyprus will be familiar with this popular long #cocktail in its various guises. Traditionally it should be made with #CyprusBrandy - #KeoVSOP is widely used. Originally the lemon element was a cordial made from the local bitter lemons distilled with sugar. Today everyone makes the recipe with lemon squash as it's easier. If your Brandy Sour is bright red in colour, it will have been made with Cyprus bitters which strangely make the drink too…

Where will you find the best #CyprusMeze? For a proper #Cypriot #meze in a traditional taverna, we recommend the popular #7StGeorgesTavern in #Paphos. Lovingly prepared food, genial hosts, each dish explained. This is definitely not fast-food.  Skip lunch... take your time ... and enjoy! A visit promises to be memorable for much more than just the meal.  And don't be afraid to ask for a doggy bag if you can't manage it all! Photo: Post: Nikki at…
#Muse restaurant, #Paphos... Great food, good menu choice and unobtrusive service. Combine this with fabulous architecture, location, lighting and stunning panoramic views over the city, and you have somewhere thoroughly deserving a place on the Paphos must-visit list.

With #FishingPorts all around the island, there are great seaside #FishTaverns. Our local is #YialosFishTavern - enjoy panoramic views of #PissouriBay while you dine on the catch of the day. Every village has at least one #CoffeeShop frequented by locals who love to take time and chat over their daily caffeine fix. A great place to try out your Greek #Kalimera. You're sure of a smile and friendly response if you make the effort. Photos: Post:

Story behind the #BrandySour? Devised at the #ForestParkHotel #Platres in the late 1930s - the heyday of the new Bauhaus-styled hotel when the jet set and glitterati were regular guests. Amongst the patrons was #KingFarouk of Egypt who wanted to secretly indulge in a tipple whilst entertaining, so the barman created a drink to resemble #IcedTea! The recipe spread, becoming a favourite with residents and visitors alike. Today it is seen as THE #CyprusCocktail. Post: Nikki at…
