Linden Schnapps Recipes

Nastoykas (Tinctures)

   Linden schnapps - based on fresh flower buds from the small-leaved linden tree - has a fresh, fruity taste with notes of green apples and gooseberry. It's a highly aromatic schnapps with a wonderful aroma. Very good as aperitif or after-dinner drink. Serve with light foods, desserts, cakes, cheese and cheesecakes.

Linden Flower buds
Unflavoured vodka - 40% alcohol content (80 proof)
If wet - dry the flower buds in the shadow on a piece of paper towel. Use a clean glass jar with tight-fitting lid. Fill the jar with flower buds. Cover well with clear, unflavoured vodka - 40% alcohol content (80 proof). Let steep for 1-3 days in a dark place at room temperature, 18-20°C (64-68°F). Shake lightly and taste it from time to time. Strain and filter your infusion into a clean glass bottle or jar with tight-fitting lid. Store (age) for a couple of days in a dark place at room temperature before serving. Can be stored for almost one year. After that the taste and flavours tend to fade out.
