Nalewka (Polish term) or nalivka (Russian term) is a traditional Polish and East Slavic category of alcoholic tincture. The alcoholic beverage is usually 40 to 45% alcohol by volume and is made by maceration of various ingredients in alcohol, usually vodka or spirit. Among the ingredients often used are fruits, herbs, spice, sugar or molasses.
This is what I had to drink tonight. We had a little European tour. It started off in Hungary, went through Italy and ended up in Germany. From herb Unicom, to peach, to amaretto type nut Nalewka, we had a lot of fun tonight. All this was with my uncle who just loves to collect alcoholic beverages from every place that he goes to, and let me tell you he travels A LOT!
