There's also grzaniec - hot mulled wine. You can find it in many bars. If you like sweet drinks, I recommend the hot cherry wine in Camelot on ul. Sw. Tomasza but it's 18% so stronger than wine...

I've also seen and tried hot beer. Some seem to like it but, for me, once was enough. Now, the hot mulled wine recommended by ewain is in a different league. One is never enough!

Hot beer with spices, orange slices and honey is fantastic but I have never seen it being served in other countries. I guess maybe that's because not many people like this drink ;) Mead can be found in France, Latvia and many other places but there are brands and types that can be found only in Poland as they are registered by the EU as a local delicacy.

Because you've gotta drink it before it gets cold!

This hot mead drink was being sold at the Christmas Markets in London last year. So it seems "the word is out". I'm off to Krakow in two weeks and a twisted part of me is hoping it's a little cold, so I can enjoy the hot alcohol.

Having a grzaniec in Scotland right now, just because it's snowing.

40 sleeps to go.

Hoping the sun will be out by then!
