Cut the peel off the
lemon but do not use the white part. Press the juice out of the lemons,
heat it and dissolve the sugar. Put this syrup in a glass pot, together
with the brandy and the lemon peel and stir. Close the pot and leave
it for at least 2 weeks before drinking and strain before use.
Fladderak was invented
by Anthonie van Fladerack in 1572 and the Groningen based firm Hooghoudt
took over the production on a larger scale. When it threatened to stop
the production in the 20th century, there were so many protests that
they kept producing the liqueur. You can use this liqueur to prepare
the winter drink Pierewaai.
