Last night we went to Náncsi Néni, which is a fantastic little Hungarian kitchen in the Buda hills. I will write more about it in another post, including some tempting food shots, but this post is about something more important: my Mom’s first pálinka shot.
Pálinka is a very common welcoming drink in Hungary.
It is fruit brandy, and can range in flavors and strengths. At our table, Györgyi ordered us plum and apricot pálinka.
It took a minute for her to react.
I call this the pálinka shoulder shake.
And you probably wont’t believe me,
but after it was over, she had another one. And liked it!
