Reflections Weekend--rakia bottles

This little bottles filled with Serbian plum brandy are called cokancici (CHO-kan-chee-chee)and will be favors at my son's wedding on July 25th...perhaps many will be downed before being taken home. I filled about 160 of them and touched nary a drop, since I don't care for brandy! Pass the wine!

See more reflections at Newtown Daily Photo's Reflections Weekend.

Beautiful set of bottles.

That's a very nice "favor"! I would guess "most" of them will be gone before the party's over! Sounds like you'll have bunch of folks celebrating with you.

Ah, and fill one of these glasses with your favorite wine, slip it in your purse, and no one will be the wiser. Especially after they had one of two of the cokancici!

I'm not much of a drinker, but plum brandy sounds pretty tasty. What a nice favor the wedding guests.

Waiting also to see the little jars for the lady guests! :)

After drinking Cokancici, I bet you can't pronounce Cokancici.

Good thing you didn't ask me to help you fill the bottles—I love brandy. :~} They do make some lovely reflections too. Am looking forward to pix of your son's wedding

Cute bottles and lovely capture! I'm a wine drinker too, but I'd enjoy to taste this brandy.

You didn't have to touch a drop. In filling 160 of these, you'd get high just from the fumes!
;-D
