POLISH LIQUEURS WORKSHOP
During this Polish liqueurs workshop you will learn how to make 3 different mouthwatering alcoholic beverages – honey with spices, lemon, and coffee. Take home three 100 ml bottles (maximum on-board allowance). The class ends with a tasting, therefore make sure you do not come with a car:-).
The art of nalewki making has been known since the Middle Ages and practitioned by monks. Nowadays some Poles still produce them at home, using secret recipes passed from generation to generation. Many liqueurs take weeks or even months to mature, but some, like those, which you will make during our workshop, you can sample immediately after making. Not without scientific proof, they are commonly believed to cure illnesses and raise the spirit! You will, therefore, get a perfect remedy for most common illnesses:-)

Polish traditions connected with liqueurs
You may purchase commercial versions of nalewka everywhere nowadays, but, it goes without saying, that those homemade are far better. Nowadays some Poles still produce them at home (some of us even grow fruit specially to make liqueurs) using secret recipes passed from generation to generation. During the class I will use the recipes from the handwritten cookbook of my Granny Helena.
