Hungarians are keeping up with their several 1000 years old tradition.

The cooked fruits with their alcohol touch received its name and began a life on their own called in Hungarian language … Pálinka.!

 „Firewater” … „Water of Life” … alias Pálinka! … but mainly called at the folksville „firewater”!

Last week-end after the past years  most common raw material fruits, as  the plum, pear, apricot, cherry, grape and strawberry the „Sour Cherry” Pálinka was to be on a medication tour on  the  Erzsébet tér  (Elizabeth Square)  at the Budapest’s Pálinka Festival.

Beside the visitors throughout the 3 days pálinka fest, the members of the professional jury were also present and admitted, not far behind from the visitors tastings, that the best-of-the-best pálinka blend of this year was  brought by Márton and his  daughters Pálinka House and it  was sold out the most.

Having the Pentecost weekend for many was a 3 days event to relax and finally enjoy the summer weather. Even though two evenings out of  3,  folks got socked, now not from the pálinkas but from the pouring so-called tropical rain storm  throughout Budapest. Never-the-less, that didn’t stop them from enjoying the grand flavors of pálinka and the yummies cooked at the open-air fire. Afterall, close to twenty thousand people visited the park during the 3 days festival.

This year’s pálinka festival came up with a new excellent idea and was highly appreciated by the visitors. The “Rézangyal” pálinka house held a blending course throughout the 3days, where individuals were able to prepare on the spot, blend according to their own taste. The final touch was to label  their bottle with a fancy name and take it home. They were told to lay  for a rest of two weeks before drinking it, cause as the expert said  time is needed for the different types of plums to be able to ripen together with the flavors. So the blending participants gave fancy names to their pálinka.

A bottle of blended Rézangyal pálinka was  labeled by the night  by ROLLINGINBUDAPEST !

A Chocolate parade were also present with  different 100%  fruity pálinka-filled chocolates. Taste gland have come alive. One of the  popular yummies out on the scene was the presence of the “Csöppentyő” … Of course not just being around watching how the delicousm and the perpare food looks like but  to have the heavenly taste which cannot be forgotten.

The Belmondo band playing Beatles songs in  their own interpretation and Ms. Bori Péretfy ‘s concert, the Ghanaian-born singer Sena, the Latino and gypsy musical  brought by the moving Intimate Gymnastics Illegál hit the road at the Elizabeth Square.

At the end of the festival, the mother of Viven expressed her thanks to the organizers and the visitors for the major donations gathered for the treatment of helping Vivien, her little daughter with lymphatic cancer.

The October Buda Palinka and Sausage Festival will bring alive the honor guest distillation of rum with pálinka under gastronomic specialties of the Caribbean, naturally the visitors again will receive a glass to do the tasting. The event will be held up at the Buda castle area.
