"Schnapps" is a German term for a strong alcoholic drink, flavored with fruit or herbs and spices, either through the distillation process or by mixing ingredients with a neutral spirit. Flavors such as peach, apple, peppermint and cinnamon are especially popular. Due to the wide variety of flavors, schnapps have great versatility in cocktails and desserts.
These terms commonly appear on schnapps labels. For further information about schnapps, please ask the staff at your Virginia ABC store.
