You can’t have a big night in without traditional Maltese nibbles…
Looking for a savoury snack? Maltese bread is the national comfort food which is perfect for picking at throughout the night.
If you can’t get your hands on traditional Maltese bread, try getting a crusty loaf from your local shop or bakery, cut it into chunky slices and garnish with extra virgin olive oil, tomato paste and a pinch of salt and pepper. This traditional tasty snack will leave you wanting more. You can even add capers or tuna for a truly delicious bite!
If you’re a fan of pasties, then you’ll love the Maltese national treasure that is pastizzi.
Usually filled with rich cheese, these pastry bites are perfect for a satisfying snack, and are so easy to make! Combine ricotta, parmesan and mozzarella with an egg, wrap it in puff pastry, seal and cover with egg wash and pop in the oven (220°C/200°C) for about 20 to 25 minutes until golden brown. Yummy!
Need a bit of
Dutch Maltese courage to get you up dancing?
The ‘Maltese’ cocktail is sure to get your feet moving. Mix 30ml of white Sambuca, 30ml of lemon juice, top up with 230ml of soda water and voila – a refreshing local cocktail!
Prefer a fruity mocktail? Combine 4 tablespoons of grenadine, 350ml of orange juice and top up with sparkling water together with some ice. Then, pop some grapes and blueberries on skewers and place them in your glass to make a truly beachy beverage!
For those who aren’t cocktail fans, if you’re lucky enough to have somewhere nearby that sells Cisk, grab yourself a bottle or two as it’s the national beer of Malta.
If your local shop doesn’t stock a range of international goods and you need an alternative, look for a lager that is light, refreshing and has a gentle taste, so you can still create the feeling of enjoying a nice cold beer on a warm evening in Malta.
