  8. Beautiful berries. I remember the Juniper drink (enbärsdricka) that was made by a local brewery where my grandmother lived. Tasted very good but I doubt it is made today. Thanks for comment at my bird blog! I wish you a good week!

    1. Thank you! I'm not familiar with the Juniper drink. I'm not sure if we've had it in Finland. Wikipedia says smaller breweries might still make it. Have a great week!

    1. Thank you Hannah! I'm not familiar with the drink, but we use the dried berries as spice in stews and such.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I will return your visit (if I haven't visited you already), but please be patient. I might not be able to do so until the weekend. Take care!
