Springtime in the Balkans

If my “Daffodils” post was too Western for you, here’s a more Balkan sign of spring: when the mulled wine stands in Zagreb turn into rakija and apple syrup stands. Once again, I made the mistake of thinking there were non-alcoholic options available, and asked if they sold apple juice. The woman’s mouth said “no,” and her eyes said, “amateur.” Touché, lady.

I’m still not sure why the apple syrup is popular this time of year. Any ideas? Answers?
