Can Cocktails Be Made With Pálinka?
In general pálinka is best to drink on its own. Its unique character lies in the fact that it’s only made with top quality fruit. Because of this, and the fact that it contains no additives, making cocktails out of this noble spirit is akin to adding Coke and ice to a 25-year-old single-malt scotch whiskey.
Hungarians as a whole prefer pure pálinka, but others, including many in the U.S. like variety in their liquors. This lead to pálinka cocktails becoming more and more popular. And we have to admit, after having sampled a few, that they are really nice!
