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…

Some of the best things in life are happy accidents... #CaféFrappe or #IcedCoffee was invented accidentally in 1957 when Greek Nestlé rep Dimitrios Vakondios wanted to make himself a coffee at Thessaloniki International Fair. With no water boiling facilities, he grabbed a Nesquik shaker, filled it with Nescafé instant coffee and a little cold water, and shook it vigorously. Thus the frothy tall cold drink, also known as the #GreekFrappe was created. Post: Nikki at pissouribay.com.

Greek frappé (Café frappé) (Greek: φραπές) is a foam-covered iced coffee drink made from spray-dried instant coffee. It is very popular in Greece especially during summer, but has now spread on to other countries.

★ #SpoonSweets: a little taste of Cyprus ★ In Cypriot tavernas portions are generous (to say the least), so you may not have room for a full dessert. To accompany your post-dinner coffee or #Filfar (orange liqueur), why not order this syrupy treat? Our fav is walnuts. More info about this and other Cypriot specialities: http://bit.ly/2gxHXR0. You can even watch them being made at Katerina's Doros village factory. And a jar is a great souvenir to take home from your Cyprus holiday.

#Apricots galore: How do you preserve yours? #Jam or #SpoonSweets? The June apricot harvest brings the usual dilemma. A lovely Cyprus tradition is the preserving of seasonal fruit and nuts in syrup. These #GlykaTouKoutaliou or #SpoonSweets are an end of dinner coffee-time treat (when you have no room for a bigger dessert), or delicious served with Greek yogurt.  They also make a good holiday souvenir! Photos: #KaterinaCyprusSweets. Post: Nikki at pissouribay.com.

What are those candy sausages? Known as #Soutzoukos in #Cyprus, variations are made in #Greece, #Georgia, #Turkey, #Armenia, #Azerbaijan and #Russia. In Cyprus, almonds form the centre of the sweet. After threading onto a string, they are dipped into a thick syrup of boiled grape juice and flour flavoured with rosewater, cinnamon and mastic. The sausages are alternately dried in the sun, then dipped in syrup. After a longer drying, they can be kept for Christmas. Post: Nikki at…
