Janosik's Letisko recipe
Scan me to take me with you
Borovicka is the national hard spirit of Slovakia. It is most well known as Spisske Borovicka from the SPIS (north east part of Slovakia) area. The most wide-spread version is the one from www.oldherold.com in Trencin (West part of Slovakia). Janosik is the national hero of Slovakia (kind of a Robin Hood) and Letisko is the Slovak word for Airport, hence the name. Semtex is the other national drink here and combined with Borovicka make this drink.
It is sweet, it is refreshing, you can't taste the alcohol...
Put 2 slovak units (1 slovak unit = 0,05l = 1.7 US ounches) of the hard spirit Borovicka in a typical 0,5l beer glass (that is what Pilsner is served in Pilsen!). Add one can of Semtex Forte (with CO2). Stir well. Can be consumed like a soft drink.. but hell...
