Menu: German Christmas Dinner

See the Recipe
Braised Red Cabbage with Bacon
The secret to cooking this dish, a classic German accompaniment to a hearty meat course, is in keeping the pot covered, which helps preserve the cabbage's deep, purple hue. See the Braised Red Cabbage with Bacon recipe

Alpine Sour
The inspiration for this drink was a cocktail called the Trinidad Especial, which includes a full ounce of Angostura bitters. Boelte wondered, "How can I do something like this in the German-Austrian tradition, to reflect the menu at Prime Meats?" The answer: Asbach Uralt, a long-aged, full-bodied German brandy, and Underberg bitters, a German digestif that comes in adorable .75-oz bottles. Boelte has a friend who makes a delicious toasted orgeat syrup, but any orgeat will bring a floral fragrance and nutty almond quality to this warming combination of spice, sweetness, and toasty depth.
