Anybody ever hear of tata z mamą? AT least in the Lublin region this was a 50-50 mixture of spirytus and cherry syrup. The loinger it stands the mellower it gets. Very nice but packs quite a kick!

I reckon it's called tata z mamą when no water is added. May be a regional thing limited to eastern Poland's Lublin region.

My cousins live in Zielona Gora and they say that this drink is popular over there.

Rather odd name for a drink. It means "daddy and mama" in English.

What part of the city do they live? I have been there many times.

When in high school, I went to a village near Krakow to spend a few days at my rustic classmate`s place. One evening we went to a local wedding and rural boys brought spirit. They diluted it with water but in the wrong ratio, don`t know why - drunk mixer or lack of water - I suppose like 70 to 30. It was extremely strong and burnt the throat like hell. But we drank it anyway as nobody wanted to chicken out and look like a sissy.
