Nubbe – ice cold spiced vodka
(Glad Midsommar = Happy Midsummer)
Midsummer Eve is a day of tradition, food and drink. In the old days it marked the summer solstice and was a pagan tradition. For more information see Anne’s post from this morning or this page here .
Last year we had a party with our friends, this year we had a calm and romantic dinner at home and then took a long walk in the centre of Gothenburg which was rather empty. For dinner we had all the traditional food: pickled herring, fresh potatoes with sourcream and chives, meatballs (vegetarian for me) and of course nubbe (ice cold aqvavit which is spiced vodka). For dessert we had fresh Swedish strawberries with whipped cream, just like all other swedes today :-) Glad Midsommar to you all!
