Sharing a Drink with Barack

This drink was enjoyed at a wonderful restaurant that I will tell you more about later. It was in Hamburg, Germany and the owner gave us each a drink of this before we left as a gift. It was sublime.

Barack ['buh-rutsk] is a type of Hungarian brandy (Pálinka) made of (or flavored with) apricots. The word barack is a collective term for both apricot (in Hungarian sárgabarack, lit. "yellow-peach") and peach (in Hungarian őszibarack, lit. "autumn-peach").
