Culturally born, grown and aged in the northern countries of Europe, most notably Germany, Scandinavia, and Iceland, Schnapps are made from white brandies derived from the distillation of fermented fruits. While the original schnapps tasted bitter and does not contain any form of sugar, schnapps drinks today are typically flavoured and adjusted to the unaccustomed palate.
Schnapps generally have an ABV of 15% to 20%. However, if your mood warrants a higher alcohol content on your drink, surely a Schnapps gin can be easily arranged. Hopefully, schnapps miniatures are available for mixing. An Archers Peach Schnapps 5cl miniature is highly preferred to be taken with lemonade or cranberry juice. Still, if you’re in for a fancier expedition, you can add it to your flaming martini, spiked cocoa or, even add it to your morning espresso.
Whether you’re craving for Schnapps cocktails to match the heat of the evening or, to quench your thirst under the hot, summer sun, schnapps will easily find a place in your personal appetite for just a slight charge of alcohol stimulation perfectly balanced for your taste, made easy to take in any day. Remember there are more ways than one to enjoy your schnapps so go practice your creativity.
