It has been attributed as the cause of many things, from Latvians' tall stature and fair hair to their somewhat introverted and reserved emotional nature, but whatever the truth of such claims, one thing is sure: for any self-respecting son (or daughter) of the forest, nothing says 'April is here at last!' better than a bowl of Cold Pine Cone Soup (Priežu čiekuru auksta zupa).
Baltic fields, meadows and forests may not bear mangos, papaya or pineapples, but they are home to other tasty local fruits and berries. And a special tree that swells with a healthy elixir in early spring. All of them provide the raw material for simple, organic and natural drinks that are widely popular in the Baltics and also enjoyed abroad.
