Apple Drink / Eppledrikk

A summer drink from “Summermat” (Summer Food) published by Hjemmets Kokebook Klubb in 1979
I know autumn has arrived in most places as far north as Norway on the Northern Hemisphere, but I thought there was room for just one more summer drink before we all head indoors. Besides I have visitors from Australia, quite a lot actually and they are just about to start the summer season – Ted

Summer Bowle / Sommerbowle

A recipe fom “Sommermat” (Summer Food) published by HJemmet’s Kokebok Klubb in 1979

From my rather extensive collection of family-, news- and women’s magazines from the forties, fifties and sixties (we’re talking several thousands here) I have gathered that bowles in lots of variations were very popular in Scandinavia back then. Partiqularly in the forties and fifties.

“Would you like a little something from the bowle”. It sounds so much more sophisticated  than than just mixing the odd cocktails don’t you think  – Ted 😉
