Spritzer Glossary

The seven most popular spritzer in Hungary

In keeping with Hungary’s wine and soda traditions, light wines with good acidity are usually mixed with soda water. Fröccs (spritzer) – a refreshing bubbly mix of wine and soda water in one proportion or another – enjoys universal popularity. So be warned! Making a fröccs with mineral water is a big faux pas because depending on the mineral content, the water has a taste of its own, which can have an impact on the taste of the fröccs itself.

Kisfröccs (small spritzer): 1 dl wine + 1 dl soda water


Nagyfröccs (big spritzer): 2 dl wine + 1 dl soda water


Hosszúlépés (long step): 1 dl wine + 2 dl soda water


Házmester (janitor): 3 dl wine + 2 dl soda water


Viceházmester (junior janitor): 2 dl wine + 3 dl soda water


Nagy házmester (landlord): 4 dl wine + 1 dl soda water


Sportfröccs (sporty spritzer): 1 dl wine + 4 dl soda water
