Stroopwafels (syrup waffles) are super thin treats perfect for a grab-and-go bite. The Dutch have been munching on these since the 18th century. If you've ever wondered what a Dutch double doozy cookie would be like, this is it. Two very thin waffles are held together by a decent layer of syrup. It is literally a syrup and waffle sandwich...awesome.

The Sherry-Netherland is concocted with the Dutch spirit Bols Genever, which is where the idea for gin came from. The Genever has definite aspects of gin, but it's more smooth and less in your face. Other ingredients include sherry, raisins, orange bitters, and curaçao (orange in flavor). The curaçao, blue in color, combined with the other ingredients make for a mysteriously black-colored cocktail. Try it out and let me know what you think!
