A Traditional Christmas Menu of Malaga
Borrachuelos ( Rummy dessert)
The word Borrachuelo derives from the same word we use in Spanish for drunkard and that’s because this dessert includes two different wines and anise liqueur among its ingredients. Filled with “angel’s hair” ( pumpkin syrup strands) is one of the most popular traditional pastries in Malaga. They are fairly easy to prepare but do require time and patience which is a brilliant excuse to have your loved ones close and enjoy their company.

It’s a pleasure to start a meal with a hot soup and a spoon in your hand. And such is the case with this traditional Spanish soup made of chicken, boiled egg, short noodles and most of the times a bit of serrano ham and a bit of peppermint.
