When in Holland you must try the famous Dutch bitter balls. Cameron Diaz and Antonio Banderas just loved it: they ate them in front of the cameras while doing a TV interview for talk show presentator Jensen.
4 tbl. butter or margarine
1 lime (not lemmon) / 1 or 2 tablespoon granulated sugar / 1/2 cup cachaça / ice cubes
Directions: Cut the lime in quarters then cut them crosswise. Put lime and sugar in a tall glass and mash with a pestle (or a wood spoon, rolling pin, etc). Add the same amount of liquor on the lime juice and stir it up. Add ice and mix it up again.In Brazil, the guys that sell it at the beach put another glass upside down over it, hold both with one hand and shake. Great trick at parties.
Or maybe only with the stone girl bought in Elise Chauvel's store (see previous post) ? Hummm...
