Slivovitz is a colorless plum brandy, usually made from Mirabelle and Switzen plums. It is usually drunk straight, but can add a fruity note to cocktails. If it is not available, you could substitute apricot, peach or cherry brandy- all fruits from the same family- but the cocktail will not look or taste quite the same.
4-6 cracked ice cubes
Dash of sugar syrup
1 measure Slivovitz
1 measure apple brandy
1 measure gin
1 measure orange juice
1. Put the ice cubes into the cocktail shaker.
2. Dash the sugar syrup over ice and pour in the slivovitz, apple brandy, gin and orange juice. Shake vigorously until a frost forms.
3. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
