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.

#CyprusCoffee... Fresh finely ground beans brewed in special saucepans known as #mbrikia traditionally made of copper. Sugar is added to coffee and water mixture. Choose #glyko (sweet), #metrio (medium), or #sketo (no sugar). The mixture is heated to dissolve the sugar, then the coffee is boiled until a froth forms which begins to bubble up the pot. Cyprus coffee is served in small cups along with a glass of cold water to drink between sips. Post: Nikki at pissouribay.com.
