She has already done some research herself
Hmm. Apparently, you can buy Bison Grass Vodka in Poland, which is illegal here in the US. It has coumarin in it, which the FDA has said is unsafe as food. I guess drinking a precursor to rat poison isn't good for you. ... In the show [Three Sheets], they mixed it with apple juice, honey vodka, and something else.A little side note about coumarin - the rat poison precursor. There's actually substantial use of it for beer products in Germany and Poland. Coumarin is one of the natural additives of Sweet Woodruff, a flavoring syrup used in Berliner Weisse.
I have heard some pretty dreadful things about Polish brewing and I'm not sure I've ever had anything Polish (mostly Okocim, owned by Carlsberg, and Zywiec, owned by Heineken) that hasn't been on the "bad side" of "eh".
Vodka is more prevalent in Poland. Though, I can't imagine a Zubrowka ("Buffalo Grass") and Tonic would be particularly good. And Julie Powell (yes, of Julie/Julia fame) made a dessert called Souffle Rothschild that traditionally calls for a Polish herbal liquor with gold flakes in it called Goldwasser, (note: Goldschlager, the cringe inducing college kids drink, is a cinnamon schnapps from Italy),that was not particularly good.
So, I know readers of MBR are world travelers. Any ideas and travel advice for Mrs. MBR on her trip to Poland?
