A liquid alcohol distilled from fermented fruit juice.
Selecting and Buying
It is very easy to make homemade schnapps. Originally, you would distill it from a fermented fruit juice or whole fruit, but most parts of the world are embracing the act of distilling it from a fruit brandy, then adding artificial flavoring and sugar. You can simply steep your herbs together with the fruits in an alcohol base of your choice (such as Danish Schnapps, a pure grain alcohol or vodka) and sweeten it and flavor the end product as desired.
Preparation and Use
Drink alone or use in cocktails. May also be used to flavor cakes and other desserts.
Flavored schnapps can be taken anytime, either as an aperitif or an after meal drink. It can also be served with any kinds of dishes, both hot and cold, or added to drinks, coffees, teas and foods.
Conserving and Storing
Store with lid tightly sealed in a cool, dry place. Upright and away from any heat source. Has a long shelf life.
