Pinsteps. Riga Black Magic
Places to visit in Riga. Languages: ru, he, en

Through the courtyard of the convention you can get to a very interesting place in Riga - this is a bar dedicated to the famous Latvian drink - the black Riga balsam. It is said that the formulation of the balm, initially as a healing drink, was invented by Abram Kunta. Moreover, they were or were not talking about the fact that Empress Catherine the Second, who was visiting Riga, was seriously ill. The only thing that could save her - this is the famous balm Kunze. This event gave life to the balm. No less interesting is the history of counterfeits, prohibitions and restrictions on the sale, the preservation of the fine line of a drink between an alcoholic beatter and a truly healing balm. Be that as it may, the recipe, restored in 1956, has reached our days. The only thing that is known for sure: the balsam is drawn on 25 different herbs. The decoration of the bar also corresponds to the history of the drink: it is something between a pharmacy and a tavern, something between a house of a medieval alchemist and an English tea salon. The menu includes a variety of hot and cold cocktails based on Riga balsam, wonderful coffee, wonderful tea and accompanying chocolates and cakes. From myself I can only add that nothing has not warmed me so much and did not make me happy on this rainy day, like this wonderful bar of the Riga Balsam! Translated with Google Translate
