Hi everybody! :)

It’s been years since I started exploring the world of cocktails and unmixed drinks (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic) and even today I still get amazed by new discoveries I hear/read about or taste.

It is general knowledge that, for example, vodka is a Russian (and Polish) specialty, British hold on to their gin and scotch, while French enjoy their cognac and pastis, just like Greek enjoy ouzo… But then, there are many delicacies which aren’t popular or even known on such a large scale and still wait to be discovered :)

So I was wondering, maybe you’d like to present us all here some drink specialty from your part of the world…?

I’ll start :)

For example, here in Serbia, the most common “national” spirit is rakija slivovitz, distilled from plums. This fruit brandy originated in this part of the world on Balkans, namely on the territory of modern-day countries Serbia, and Bosnia and Herzegovina.

It is also quite possible that a guest will be served with home-made liqueur from sour cherries or walnuts, but these can’t be found commercially in Serbia, afaik. :)

    Seems the majority of England are now drinking not for enjoyment, but just to get drunk. If it contains a high level of alcohol, it’s acceptable.

    I’m part of a minority then because I’m a strict non-alcoholic. :P Instead, I drink orange juice, Lilt, Tango, and so on. My favorite drink of all is the sparkling Welch’s grape juice (the kind you find in what look to be bottles of wine but they’re really not.) Yum! :)
