Rowan Schnapps Recipes

Nastoykas (Tinctures)

 
   Rowan schnapps - based on fresh and fully ripe rowan berries - has a unique, sweet-acid and slightly bitter taste with notes of crabapple, rose hip, and a little strawberry. The color is pale red. Excellent as appetizer or in combination with honey schnapps. Serve with venison meat, other game dishes, pork, poultry, desserts, cheese and cheese cakes.
