Home > Rosemary Schnapps
Rosemary schnapps - based on fresh rosemary sprigs - is strong, spicy, and very aromatic. But to most people, it's a little too overwhelming to be enjoyed on its own.
However, rosemary schnapps works excellent in many herbal schnapps blends.
And that's why this schnapps is one of my favourites.
Try for instance to blend it with...
Or try to make various combinations of some or all five schnappses.
Here you can see how to create your own schnapps blends.
You can also add a little melted honey if you like. It makes a fine schnapps.
Rosemary schnapps is a wonderful taste and flavour enhancer.
So use it in barbecue sauces, soups, stews, stuffings, salad dressings, herb butters, dips, teas, and dishes with lamb, veal, fish, chicken, venison meat, and duck. Or in any other dish, where you would normally use rosemary.
Or - use it to flambé various meat and fish dishes. It's just heavenly.
You can also turn your schnapps into a liqueur.
Use only fresh rosemary sprigs.
Pick them in the morning after the dew has disappeared. That's when they are most aromatic.
If you buy fresh rosemary, do make sure the plant is really fresh - organic if possible - and free from spots and insect damage.
Handle the plant with care - fresh herbs bruise easily.
And use the sprigs as soon as possible to get the most flavour and aroma into your schnapps.
Note: If for some reason you are not satisfied with your schnapps, there are ways to adjust both taste and flavours - click here to see how.
Serve your rosemary schnapps or liqueur at room temperature in suitable glasses.
And remember to keep your schnapps bottle or decanter tightly closed and in a dark place before and between servings.
