While they gear up for glory we're going to sit down to our second to last plate along the street food guide! This morning we're going to take a look at a great recipe for currywurst and the Bed of Roses Cocktail.

Currywurst is an extremely popular street food in Berlin. Steamed, then fried knackwurst (pork sausage) sliced and tossed in a curry sauce is all there is too it. The key to an authentic currywurst recipe is the sauce. This recipe for the sauce seems simple enough to execute and stays true to the curry ketchup phenomenon that is currywurst. The spiciness of the curry marries well with the concentrated tomato and slight sweetness of ketchup. This sounds like good game eats if you ask me!

The Bed of Roses cocktail features herbal liquors found often in the glasses of your everyday German. The main liquor is Josef Meiers which looks and tastes extremely similar to Jaegermeister. The "in your face" herbal flavor is sweetened by grenadine and brightened by lemons and limes. This drink may not be for the faint of heart, but it's worth a try.
