Tudor Cocktails!

Ever wondered what a "Katherine Howard" might taste like? Or a "Henry VIII"? I stumbled over this fun little post when I was browsing through the internet and of course you should enjoy it as well. Have a taste an pick your favourite.

The Henry VII:
Mix a bottle of Shiraz with 1 cup of orange juice, 2 cinnamon sticks, 1 sliced orange, 1 cup of sugar, ½ cup of cardamom and five whole cloves. Serve warm!

The Henry VIII:
Pick up a huge mug and fill it with two scoops of chocolate ice-cream. Pour cool Guinness over and enjoy.

The Catherine of Aragon:
Mix 1 bottle of white Rioja with 1/4 cup of sugar. Add 1 slice of peach, 1 sliced mango, 1 cup of sliced strawberries, 2 sliced apples and 1 sliced lime to a large punch bowl. Remember to cool it off with ice.

The Anne Boleyn:
You'll need a Martini-glass for this. Pour 2 oz of vodka, 2 oz ginger brandy and 1/4 cup of lime juice. Mix it!

The Jane Seymour:
Heat 1 cup of milk and 1/4 cup of condensed milk with with a pinch of cloves and cinnamon in a saucepan. In a different bowl whisk 2 egg yolks with 1/3 cup of sugar. Now you have to slow down - whisk VERY SLOWLY some of the hot milk into the egg mixture and then let it all float back to the saucepan with a sprinkle of nutmeg and ½ cup heavy cream - remember to whisk constantly!

The Anne of Cleves:
Pour cool Riesling into a tall wine glass and garnish with a lemon wedge.

The Katherine Howard:
Add a single drop of peach nectar to a champagne flute, top it off with either champagne or sparkling wine and let a few raspberries swim around at the top.

The Catherine Parr:
Add ½ cup of Frangelio to a hot cup of coffee. Top it off with whipped cream and add cocoa to the top.

The Edward VI:
Mix ½ cup of lime juice with 1 oz of tequila and a splash of triple sec. To add a special little special, salt the rim.

The Mary I:
Pour a dash of Angostura bitter and the same amount of water over 1 tbsk sugar, add 1½ oz whiskey and lemon peel for the top.

The Elizabeth I:
Pour 1½ oz of peppermint schnapps into a pretty glass. Add 1½ oz of Bacardi 151 and a splash of pomegranate juice.

The Lady Jane Grey:
Mix ½ oz of amaretto with 1 oz of Kahlua and a splash of cream - take as a shot!
