11: Blue Blood & Amber Drinks

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-mqbhm-8ffa55

It’s a royal edition of Crime by the Bar. In the lead up to King’s Day (a Dutch national holiday) we look back at some historical crimes involving royalty.

Jonatan shares the violent end for Alexander I of Yugoslavia who warned “if you want a regime change, you need to kill me”. You can guess how this ends but it makes for a very interesting tale.

Ana retells the Mayerling Incident which involves the Crown Prince of Austria and his mistress the many questions surrounding their deaths. What do you think happened?

Our drink this week is a ‘Royal Tea’ cocktail with whiskey, the Queen of Spices and rose syrup.

Our Dutch Ginger cocktail:

30ml genever (oude is better, but jonge will have a more neutral flavour)
30ml Bols Ginger (but any ginger liquer will do)
Cranberry juice

Fill a short glass with ice, add genever and Bols Ginger and top up with cranberry juice. Serve with a lime wedge.

Minisode 1: Antiques Roadshow

Later, Ana tells the story of the curious disappearance of Trevaline Evans who failed to return to her antique’s shop on a busy Saturday afternoon. Plus a bonus Welsh lesson!
