Fröccs 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.
