Slivovitz or Zwetschgenwasser Needed

dan.haggarty Oct 17, 2011 05:45 PM

Disaster!!!! Christine made a lovely Zwetschgenkuchen (German plum cake) and we're out of plum eau-de-vie, from Germany or elsewhere. What's the best alternative available at the LCBO?

Vielen dank!

Dan

    Good question. Depends which LCBO you are visiting?
    Obviously, the LCBO at Summerhill Royal York will have a better selection.

        I've been to the Royal York LCBO, and I've seen more than 5 brands of Slivovitz on the shelf easily
