During the dark winter time, the locals have found several wonderful ways to spend their free time and to keep warm when the temperature drops below zero degrees. To warm their souls, Alūksne inhabitants actively take part in various social activities – they dance, sing, play mind games and, without any constraints, share the information on anything, even about the people in the town and outside it. The best way to warm the body is from the inside, and Alūksne people discovered this well-known method a very long time ago. There is a hot and tasty drink that helps them keep warm and also cheers them up during the cold winter season. The drink can be simple and innocent but for those who are always freezing there can be also a little dollop of alcohol added.
The Alūksne cocktail has a gently sweet taste supplied by almond syrup but a slice of lime provides the necessary dose of vitamins that together with orange peel help to avoid all the viruses. The well-known cocktail ingredients whiskey and apple juice together with fragrant spices – a cinnamon stick and a star anise will give a light dizziness, captivate with its taste and aroma and bring cosiness in any company.
Enjoy responsibly in the cafes of Alūksne!
