Seafaring favourites. Liqueur coffee and eiergrog.

Once the signature drink of the Frisians, pharisäer is now enjoyed right across Schleswig-Holstein. This hot coffee mixed with rum and sugar and topped with whipped cream is just the answer on a cold day. It originated from the North Sea island of Nordstrand in the mid-19th century. Just as popular, if not more so, is Heligoland's eiergrog, a hot drink of egg yolk, sugar, rum and water. While some warn it will knock the socks off even the strongest mariner, others think it's simply delicious. Either way, raise your glasses and say prost!
