http://news.airwise.com/story/view/1306245920.html Hungarian Airport EU Success With Brandy Machine Hungary, which holds the European Union's rotating presidency, has used every tool in diplomacy to impress visiting EU officials. The most memorable touch however, may be a parting shot of fruit brandy at the airport. In the EU Presidency Lounge of the Ferenc (Franz) Liszt Airport in Budapest, protocol workers have installed a novel machine that distributes Palinka - a fiery fruit brandy native to Hungary - in crystal glasses. For free. After a busy summit day, dozens of delegations pass through the lounge, said Peter Horvath, a foreign ministry protocol officer. For the 40 minutes they spend in the lounge waiting for their planes, "the box" becomes a hit.
