Maibowle

Although today's weather here didn't exactly suggest the beginning of May (more like early February if you ask me), I celebrated Beltane aka May Day with a couple of glasses of Maibowle. 
Maibowle or May wine is a traditional German drink for this time of the year. If you would like to try it, simply add a some fresh strawberries to a bottle of chilled white wine and infuse with a few sprigs of sweet woodruff. Go easy on the woodruff as it's slightly poisonous and can be overpowering - about 12 sprigs per bottle is enough.





Hope you all had a good May Day. Enjoy the rest of it.


Blessed be.
