Slivovitz or Zwetschgenwasser Needed

  • 4

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!

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