Top 10 Drinks from around the World

What better way to start the weekend than looking at the world’s favourite drinks. Get some inspiration for your night out or your next holiday to one of these great destinations.


1. Tequila – Mexico
Tequila comes in different colours, sizes and strengths but generally, a night with tequila is a good night! The old routine of Tequila, lemon, salt; is more than enough to get your taste buds tingling! So be sure to enjoy your tequila whether it’s in a cocktail or as hardcore tequila slammers!


2. Martini – America
A popular drink, martinis are usually made with gin and vermouth, then garnished with an olive or a lemon twist! A sophisticated beverage, martinis were created in America and are now loved by people all around the world. If you’re ever in a swanky bar and in doubt about your drink, always go for a martini! Try it James Bond Style (shaken not stirred) or traditional if you prefer.


3. Tea Sri Lanka
After water, tea is the most widely drunk beverage- in the world! With thousands of variations and flavours, tea is the perfect drink when feeling tired, ill, stressed, hung-over and thirsty! Tea is widely produced in Sri Lanka and you can enjoy tours of the great tea plantations!


4. Mojito – Cuba
Tantalise your taste buds with this tangy number. A mojito traditionally consists of white rum, sugar, lime juice, sparkling water, and mint.  This refreshing concoction is a perfect drink in any situation but created on a Caribbean island, this zesty number is especially great for relaxing under the sun!


5. Sake Japan
Sake is a traditional Japanese drink, made from fermented rice, sometimes referred to as ‘rice wine’. Sake is an integral part of Japanese cuisine and perfectly complements Japanese food- normally more salty foods, and is just as tasty when sampled on its on at a bar for example. Enjoy it hot or cold to suit your taste buds or culinary experience!


6. VB Beer Australia
Victoria Bitter is one of Australia’s favourite beers! Brewed in the state of Victoria (and of course aptly named), Victoria Bitter has long been the preferred option for Australian’s to cool down in the sizzling sun. Light in colour and big on flavour, try a Victoria Bitter at any pub, bar or restaurant that you come across! Or take a cooler to the beach and enjoy a cold one while firing up the barbie.


7. Caesar Canada
A Canadian classic, the Caesar cocktail is a home favourite in ‘Maple Leaf Land’! Much like a Bloody Mary but with a different twist, the Caesar contains Clamato juice which is a mix of tomato juice and clam broth! A tangy option that’s sure to excite your palette, a Caesar is smoother than a Bloody Mary and tends to just slide down! Great for the morning after....


8. Caipirinha Brazil
Brazil’s national cocktail, Caipirinha is a cheeky combination made with cachaça, which is Brazils most distilled alcoholic beverage with sugar and lime. Originating in Sao Paolo, Brazil has favoured this cocktail for a long, long time but now people all over the world enjoy a tasty Caipirinha!


9. Lassa India
Lassa is a traditional yoghurt based drink enjoyed widely in India. Yoghurt, spices, water and sometimes fruit or cumin are blended together to make either a sweet lassi or savoury lassi. Perfect for a hot weather treat, especially to accompany lunch or while you are out and about.


10. Mekhong Whiskey – Thailand
Mekhong is Thailand’s first branded golden spirit that they have domestically produced! Launched over 30 years ago, it’s still the favourite amongst many Thai’s. Slightly crossing over two borders, Mekhong is quite close to being considered rum! Pour yourself a glass on the rocks and experience the flavour for yourself!
