Carneval Drink

Today was a beautiful sunny day in Basel and I enjoyed the day taking in all the great costumes at the Fasnacht, i.e. carneval.

The different masks and costumes are marvellous!

Some are very traditional, others modern.

As I was busy doing my rounds at the carneval, I did not have time to cook. But I had time to mix the typical carneval drink called the Waggis. Waggis is a type of mask and nickname for the people from Alsace, the region bordering on Basel.

The drink is a white wine spritzer made with Schweppes tonic water.

I mix half and half and garnish it with some lemon.

Refreshing and tasty!
