Brandy is drunk for one's health, as well as as a remedy for when you are sick. It is said that brandy is for "God to forgive" the dead and for the welcoming of guests. Brandy goes well with various appetizers.
Let us offer you some popular winter appetizers for brandy:
Bean salad with onions
Preparation: Pour out the beans from the can into a strainer and wash it under a trickle of running water. Place it in a bowl. Chop the onions and parsley finely. Add them to the beans and season with vinegar, olive oil and salt. Stir and serve with a glass of cold brandy.
Sauerkraut with paprika
Preparation: Chop the sauerkraut leaves finely. Pour olive oil over them and season with black pepper and paprika.
Oyster mushrooms with butter
Preparation: Put the butter and a cup of water in a saucepan and stew the salted mushrooms. Remove them from the stove once softened and add the spices with the finely chopped dill. Before serving, sprinkle with grated cheese.
Roasted peppers with olive oil and parsley
Pour olive oil over the finely chopped roasted peppers. Sprinkle finely chopped garlic and parsley on top.
Mixed pickles remain a classical appetizer for brandy.
Sliced bacon, seasoned with paprika or black pepper is a fantastic brandy garnish.
Of course, brandy also goes well with sujuk, lukanka and other similar delicacies. If you can't prepare them yourself, you can always buy them at the supermarket. The taste and quality might be different but veteran drinkers always say that after the third glass of brandy, the difference is not noticeable.
