Hawthorn schnapps is a very delicious schnapps. Soft, round and aromatic. It's based on the hawthorn berries, also known as haws or thorn apples.
Serve the schnapps with smoked venison, salmon, trout, wild duck, pork, paté, terrine, desserts, cheese and cheesecakes.
Or add it to jellies, chutneys, fruit sauces, desserts, marmalades or jams -hedgerow jam, for instance.
Excellent as appetizer - - or turned into a liqueur.
Hawthorn schnapps blends very well with crabapple schnapps.
For best result, use freshly picked and fully ripe berries.
You can use almost any species or variety - so start with your favourite one, then try some others.
However, the singleseed hawthorn (Crataegus monogyna) and also the English hawthorn (Crataegus laevigata) are two species that are highly recommended.
Note: If for some reason you are not satisfied with your infusion, there are ways to adjust both taste and flavours - click here to see how.
Serve your hawthorn schnapps at room temperature in suitable glasses. And remember to keep your schnapps bottle tightly closed and in a dark place before and between servings.
