How to read Master and Margarita

http://cr.middlebury.edu/public/russian/Bulgakov/public_html/Varenukha.html

Ivan Savelyevich Varenukha

The theater manager at the Variete. The name Varenukha comes from a vodka based berry drink.

Varenukha: Ukrainian Hot spiced vodka

Unlike the Russians, who insist on chilled vodkas, the Ukrainians prefer warm brandies and vodkas, which as they so quaintly put it "make a carnation bloom right inside your stomach." For centuries varenukha - which means "boiled" - was the favored tipple of the fearsome Cossacks, fueling their warrior bodies by day and making them merry by night. It should be served warm.
