“Zapiekanka” is a most popular Polish street food, and my favorite one. You will find it in almost every city, usually in places that are open 24h., which makes it easy to grab even after a long night of partying 🙂

What I love about Zapiekanka is that it’s simple, super tasty and looks gorgeous. It’s the perfect finger food for a party—and because of its fame, you’ll find it in many tasty combinations. But in my opinion, the best way to enjoy Zapiekanka is to discover its traditional variant first.

The “apple pie” cocktail is among our most iconic cocktails, prepared with Żubrówka®, a brand of Polish bison grass vodka. This cocktail owes its cute and tasty name to its second ingredient, the apple. 

Żubrówka vodka has been made near the Bialowieza Forest (Puszczy Białowieskiej) since the 16th century. The nobility believed that blades of bison grass were an aphrodisiac, which is why, by the 18th century, pure Żubrówka became a favoured drink among nobility (szlachta) and peasantry alike. 

There are plenty of delicious Żubrówka-based drinks, but let’s begin with the most iconic!
