How to make Polish Sliwowica

How to make Polish Sliwowica (Polish Slivovitz)


This is a basic recipe for Polish Sliwowica.

You will need:

  • About 5 kg (about10-11 lbs.) fresh plums
  • A fermentation pot and empty bottles
  • A distillation setup


Get whole, ripe or even overripe, fresh, good quality plums. Using right fruits is crucial for success! No dried prunes or things like that are allowed. Remove the stems. Wash the plums, when they’re dry cut them into pieces. Removing the stones is not recommended for a "real" Sliwowica. But you can do it if you want. The taste is going to be somewhat smoother then.


Kotlet mielony - recipe


How to make Polish Kotlet Mielony (a.k.a. Sznycel)


You will need:

  • 0,4-0,5 kg (11 lb.) meat: pork, turkey, beef (in equal quantities)
  • 1 stale bread roll (about 50-80g or 2-3 oz.)
  • 1 glass milk
  • 50 g (2 oz.) onion
  • 1 egg
  • salt, pepper, dill
  • 1 garlic (optional)
  • 20 g (0,7 oz.) breadcrumbs
  • Oil (vegetable oil, lard or margarine)


It is possible to prepare a Kotlet Mielony from just one kind of meat, say pork. However for best results you should use different kinds of meat at the same time.

Mince the meat thoroughly, add finely grated onion. Soak the stale bread roll with milk and squeeze it. Add the bread and egg to the meat.  Add salt, pepper, dill and grated garlic.

Zoladkowo-Gorzka Vodka (Special Herbs Bitter Polish Vodka)

Zoladkowo-Gorzka (Special Herbs Bitter Vodka) is a flavored vodka, prepared with herbs and dried fruits. To some extent it is prepared in a similar way to Polish nalewkas (infusions) – herbs are macerated in alcohol. The vodka is matured before it is bottled. Zoladkowo-Gorzka is rather sweet and herbal in taste, and brownish in colour (thanks to the addition of caramel). The sweetness is distinct but not overwhelming.

This herbs bitter vodka is actually quite pleasant to taste. As such it’s “easier” to drink than many dry vodkas. But on the other hand its sweet flavor makes it somewhat harder to pair with food. It will go well with desserts or meals which contain sweet sauces. Or it can be drunk just for the pleasure of it, of course. As every vodka, Zoladkowo-Gorzka should be served chilled or on the rocks with a slice of lemon.
