PATXARAN The Basque Liquor




“Patxaran”, a very popular liqueur in the Basque provinces of both Spain and France  is made with sloe berries. The only difference is that instead of using gin as a base, they use anisette liqueur. It is served cold or at room temperature, as an “aperitivo”, cold and with ice cubes or in a liqueur glass after coffee. A very interesting variation. –   The recipes date back to the late 17th Century and include the addition of essence of almond and vanilla.  Yum!
