Default Slivovitz

We have about 4 gallons of this going on the bar. With all the added sugar it's making additional alcohol so she ordered special lids so the jars don't explode.

Here is an article you might enjoy on making old world slivovitz. I have had the pleasure of drinking some superb Croatian slivovitz made by the brother of one of my 86 year old customers. It has a very, very pale blue hue to it, and is some of the best I have ever tasted. When in do work for her, I always get a small sample, as it will qualify you for a DUI if you drink much more! LOL

She used New Amsterdam Vodka. I stay away from Everclear due to a purple passion party with some gals in college back in 69.

We must have 10 gallons of various fruit liqueurs going right now; current, black berry, red raspberry, and now plum.

The mrs started bottling her Italian plum slivovitz today.
It;s a slow process as she is running the brew through
coffee filters to make sure it's a clear product.

I had a half shot and it's a bit sweet with a long finish
and will make a nice aperitif.
