Søbogaard's answer to good cheerful cuisine

Welcome drink - with elderflower

½ bottle concentrated elderflower juice
3 bottles sparkling white wine
½ bottle dry vermouth

Mix everything in a bowl with ice cubes and garnish with lemon slices, lemon balm or mint leaves. If strawberries are available, they look great in the bowl

Mint smoothie

1 half Orange
1 half Galia or other melon
2 dl Mint juice concentrate
1 dl Natural yogurt
1 dl Crushed ice
1 slice Lime for garnish

Peel the orange and dig the flesh out of the melon. Blend the orange, melon and mint juice. Season to taste with yogurt. Add crushed ice to a glass, pour in the mixture, garnish with a lime slice and a straw.


It's a fresh and light summer drink

Cranberry juice - with rosemary

Dilute 2 dl cranberry juice with 8 dl water. Warm it up a little with a rosemary stalk. Cool and serve as a long drink with ice cubes (the drink for the true rosemary lover).

Also try: Mix 1½ dl undiluted sour cranberry juice with 3-4 dl natural yogurt, 4 tsp ginger honey and 4 tbsp. icing sugar. Add 2 handfuls of crushed ice cubes

Duck breast

300 g Duck breast
1 tsp. Honey, (heather)
1 Orange for juice
Salt and freshly ground pepper
Peeled potatoes
Northern Lights jam

Stir together the honey, orange juice, salt and pepper. Turn the duck breast in the marinade and leave it in the fridge for 3 hours. Brown the duck breast in the pan and then roast it in the oven at 185 degrees for 20 minutes. Then let it rest for 10 to 15 minutes. Fry the boiled peeled potatoes in butter and sesame seeds, boil the carrots first and then briefly cook the broccoli.

Try replacing the juices selected in the recipe with a different juice variant.

Whisky on the blackcurrant

1 part Søbogaard blackcurrant juice
4 parts boiling water
1 part whisky

Pour the blackcurrant juice and boiling water into a mug. Add the whiskey and stir.

If you prefer a non-alcoholic toddy, you can replace the whiskey with 1 tsp. honey.

Elderberries with vermouth

The drink should be served immediately after preparation, as elderberry juice loses heat quickly. Try it also in cold form.

1 dl. elderberry juice
1 dl. water
1/2 dl vermouth bianco
1 lemon slice

Mix elderberry juice and water in a saucepan and bring to the boil. When the juice has reached boiling point, pour it into a mug. Add the Vermouth Bianco, place the lemon slice on the rim and serve immediately. Try not to heat the drink after the Vermouth has been added, as the alcohol will disappear.

Sorbet is

For 4 - 6 people

4 dl concentrated juice (your favorite Søbogaard)
1 dl water
1 dl white wine, not bone dry
1 cup pasteurized egg white

Mix the juice with water and wine, freeze the mixture for about 3 hours, stir and fold in the stiffly beaten egg white.

Freeze again, stirring repeatedly. Stirring is important, otherwise you will get a layer of juice at the bottom and sorbet on top.

Sorbet does not become rock hard, but has a nice creamy airy consistency. It is excellent to combine regular ice cream and juice sorbet.

Elderflower mousse

For 4-5 people

4 large eggs
4 tbsp. golden cane sugar
6 gelatine
2 dl. concentrated elderflower
1/4 l whipping cream

Whisk the egg yolks with the sugar. The soaked gelatine melted in a water bath is cooled before being mixed with the elderflower. Whip the cream and egg whites until frothy, then fold both into the egg yolk mixture.

Let it all set before decorating with whipped cream in small dollops and a little grated chocolate
