Toast to Warsaw!
“Na zdrowie!” (Cheers) is an expression many foreigners visiting Warsaw soon learn, especially when there’s a chance ot pop out in the evening for a beer or cocktail. Beer-lovers will find a number of well-stocked multi-taps in Warsaw serving a large variety of craft brews from Poland and abroad. Many are brewed in small breweries using time-honoured, traditional methods.
Another high-proof Polish speciality are cordials, aromatic tipples obtained by steeping fruit, honey and/or herbs in strong alcohol.
Although vodkas and cordials are usually drunk alone or with small bite-down snacks, in recent years restaurateurs have taken an interest in them. Some have added selected types of noble tipples to their dinner menus. Such a proposal has been extended to guests by Restauracja Elixir by Dom Wódki, known for its especially well-stocked bar.
