Stickl Open Air Concert /Music in the Mountains

This year on the evening 12 August, the mountains rumble with the sound of music. The nor-mally quiet Wirtshaus Cafe Stickl in Neuhaus hosts an Open Air concert showcasing many of our local bands. On the list for this year’s bands were “Vuizlaud”, “V:O:I”, “ Redwine Company” and “Facebarraxxx” and directing all the fun from behind his turntable, DJ Aka the Wolfman.

Lederhosen and biker leathers dance side by side as each band enters the stage. Grandmoth-ers and teenagers party together. It is just a gathering of music lovers. The energy was great and the talent is real.

This event is not your average grill party. The tree-covered biergarten of Stickl quickly fills up with music lovers of all ages. Tickets are available on the night and you will just need to follow the vibrating beats to find the location just behind Wirtshaus Café Stickl.

On the menu for purchase beyond the price of your 7€ entrance fee are coffee, cocktails and plenty of alcohol free options. If grilled meat and bratwurst don’t peak your interest there are al-ternative options like fish sandwiches, spinach ravioli and sticky doughnuts.

Carina Baumann, the boss of the Café, is new to the job starting January 2015. This was her first year organizing the event and I am sure this will not be the last. I highly recommend mark-ing your calendar for next August to start watching Café Stickl’s Facebook page for their 2018 Open Air Concert.

Seaside Cocktails and Alpine Sunsets

Located between the Vitalwelt Kurpark and the Schliersee tour boat dock, jutting out on its own little peninsula, sits the colorful cozy Kiosk am See. It affords you one of the most spectacular views across the lake and up into the mountains. Locals know this to be one of the magical spots to meet friends at sunset for cocktails.

Last week while out on an evening walk around the lake with a girlfriend we were drawn in by the warm breezes and twinkle lights. We were lucky enough to find an ambiance soaked table directly on the water but we could have enjoyed laying back in comfortable lounge chairs under tropical grass umbrellas.

What really brought us in was the talk of the amazing cocktails, and amazing they were. We ordered a drink full of ripe strawberries, tart limes and Prosecco. It was so light and refreshing and the color was divine. I highly recommend making a batch for your next BBQ with friends or if you in Schliersee make your way down to the boat landing and the Kiosk am See. If you are not an alcohol drinker they had plenty of alcohol free choices to enjoy with that spectacular view.

 

Ingredients

You can make your own strawberry purée very simply by mashing up a container of ripe local strawberries, reserving a few to decorate the rim of your champagne flutes, and squeezing fresh lime juice over the top. If your strawberries aren’t sweet enough add a teaspoon of sugar and store in the fridge. This purée can also be made with frozen strawberries as well.  If you can find it this purée is available as a drink mix in Rewe and many other stores.

  • 3 tablespoons fresh strawberry purée yield from about 2 large berries
  • 1/2 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1/3 – 1/2 cup pink champagne prosecco or other sparkling wine, well chilled, or regular
  • Additional strawberries lime wedges and mint sprigs for garnish (optional)

 

Instructions

1      Mix the strawberry purée with the lime juice and pour it into a champagne flute. Carefully top with the champagne and garnish before serving immediately.

ZUM WOHL and remember to raise a glass to another beautiful day in Schliersee.
