Soplica Pigwowa - Quince Flavored Polish Vodka
I thanked my colleagues, brought the bottle home, and then didn't open it for months. When I finally did, the flavor took me for a loop - I mistakenly attributed it to cherry cough syrup and it made me wince. About a month later, I had another sip, and I realized... this wasn't cherry, it wasn't quite pear... it was like a pear crossed with a raspberry. The bottle sat around for months waiting to be blogged about... and DDF wanted to jettison the old bottles, so this is the first of several beverage posts this weekend.
When I googled the Soplica Pigwowa today, I came to realize it was Quince flavored, and now in hindsight, I appreciate it more. It really was smooth drinking throughout the Spring and Summer.
Now, if I visit Warsaw next January, my dilemma is what to take the Poles? I don't want to show up empty handed...
