Plum Brandy

When I lived in South Bend, one of my roommates, Tommy Utah, had a bottle of plum brandy. I don't know why he had a bottle of plum brandy or where he got it, but despite our adventurous natures and general bibulousness, there was something so abhorrent about the idea of plum brandy that I don't think the bottle was ever opened, and it was the subject of countless jokes.

It turns out that the aforementioned plum brandy, known as slivovica here, is the national drink of Serbia and it is served as an apertif at virtually every formal dinner.

It is also quite delicious.
