First Pálinka

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!
