Madroño

Yesterday afternoon, me and a few friends were wandering around La Latina in the beautiful 70 degree weather, and stumbled upon the famous El Madroño bar, where they serve the ¨shot of Madrid,¨ a shot of the Madroño liqueur. El oso y madroño (the bear and the tree of Madrid) are the famous symbols of Madrid, and the fruit from the Madroño tree is distilled into a sweet liqueur which is served in a wafer shot glass lined with chocolate. We tried the shots (yumm) for only 1 euro each. I can check one more thing off my Madrid bucket list 🙂
