Three cocktails to love during the festive season

Surprise your loved ones with a delicious cocktail – here are some recipes from the bartenders of Société Bar

The bartender of Société Bistro & Bar, Réka Horváth, and the bar manager Zsolt Tarjányi have selected three of the Société Signature cocktails to brighten up the holidays.

There is always a smile on Réka Horváth's face. This cheerful love for life was incorporated into his cocktail called "Chupacabra", which is recommended for ladies especially. Mezcal is kind of a mystical drink - it's tequila's rich, strong and wild brother. This power is softened by the spices, vanilla and clove give the drink a festive feel, which is complemented by a fruity note, given by the cherry.



3 cl Mezcal
2 cl Heering Cherry
3 cl lime
2 cl vanilla syrup
3 dash cloves bitter
topped with smoked maldon salt and vanilla

Zsolt Tarjányi created a really cool cocktail called "This is America" with smoky, slightly salty, strong flavors. The sweet taste of the bourbon is balanced by the saltiness of the bacon jam, the figs smuggle a little fruity into the drink, while Peychaud's bitter anise notes evoke the sultry world of New Orleans. This cocktail will chase away the cold days for sure.


4 cl Bourbon
2 bk bacon jam
6 cl of fig puree
3 cl agave syrup
2 cl lime
2 dash Peychauds bitter



Réka and Zsolt common creation "Red Monkey," which evokes scents and flavors of mulled wine thanks to the gingerbread and red wine, but the added whiskey makes it remain a serious cocktail, which can be a great favorite for winter nights.


3 cl Monkey Shoulder
3 cl Cabernet Sauvignon
1 cl lime
2 cl Gingerbread syrup
