Sbiten – a great drink, relevant in the cold season. In addition to being tasty, it can also be made as useful as possible. It is about this – extremely useful shot – I want to tell today.
Sbiten with medicinal herbs (St. John’s wort, chamomile, sage, mint) drank in Russia not only for mood, but also for health promotion. On hot days or in the bath, they drank cold, because this drink perfectly quenches thirst. In the cold season it was the best warming and toning option.

In general, there are many options for making this drink, because besides the main ingredient, honey, you can add something that will add brightness to the taste. And this, in turn, can be berries and fruits, spices and spices, citrus, or, as in today’s version, herbs and wild rose.

In general, Sbiten, this is a good option for a cloudy, rainy autumn and snowy frosty winter. I will say even more: some recipes for this wonderful drink allow for the addition of alcohol (mostly, these are recipes with spices). So, after a hard day’s work, after slushy windy streets, you can prepare such a magical drink before bedtime.
