1. Sip your pálinka
Either you chug down the Hungarian national snaps or you don’t deserve the warm feeling of it sliding down your throat. No real Hungarian would ever sip his pálinka. I am still not sure though, if it is better to feel the pain in my throat several times on an easily bearable level and to live with the mockery, or to feel it just one intense time and to save my face. Either way, once the pálinka has arrived in your stomach, a cozy feeling of warmth starts streaming through the center of your body and you immediately forget all your troubles.
