Hello everyone, as some of you know me, I've shared a lot about cultural differences about Food, People, Couples, Clothes ect.
It's time to know what famous amazing drinks these countries have to offer us, (in this case alcoholic), I will list famous drinks from around the globe that you might want to try and that are worth trying ...
Don't come at me with " I DRINK WATER " i know you do ... so chill with that comment I'm too old for that.
Anyways, enjoy and as always pick your favorite drink, and share with me your thoughts on this, and which would you love to try?
(Please don't drink and drive, don't even drink to get drunk, just drink to enjoy your day and enjoy the taste - Quote : NATURED)
1. Italy (of course)
Ingredients: Gin, vermouth, Campari, orange slice or rind. Italy is not always about pizza and spaghetti, we also have some amazing drinks to offer. Don't mess with our wines because trust me they are delicious. Cheers in Italian is "Salute".
Ingredients: Vodka, coconut liqueur, lime juice, simple syrup, soda, ginger, lemongrass, Kaffir lime leaf, Thai chili pepper, lime to garnish. Cheers it Thailand is ชนแก้ว "chon gaew" which means hit glass...cute ain't it?
Ingredients: Pimm's No. 1, lemonade, lemon juice, cucumber, orange slices, crushed mint, strawberries. I don't know about you guys but this sounds so freaking delicious, and the best part? You can munch on the gin-macerated bits of fruit when the last drop is gone. Cheers in U.K ... just Cheers...
Ingredients: Tequila (preferably blanco), grapefruit juice, soda, salt, sugar syrup or honey (optional). This Mexican drink is a simple drink, more than anything a vehicle for great tequila (Mexicans & Tequila .. DUH )— the kind you sip instead of shoot though ... Cheers in Mexico: Salud!!
5. Finland & Sweden
Glögi in Finland (or glögg in Sweden)
Ingredients: Red wine, blackcurrant or red grape juice, vodka, sugar, cinnamon stick, vanilla pod, whole cloves, cardamom pods, candied orange peel, raisins, blanched slivered almonds. It's steaming, fragrant, and ideally served with a couple gingerbread cookies, reminds me of cold winter days, this drink would definitely warm you up. Cheers in Finnish, Kippis and in Swedish, Skål!!
Ingredients: Vodka, Mott's Clamato juice, hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce, celery salt, salt and pepper, celery stick, lime wedge. This is Canada's most consumed mixed drink. Might not really be everyone's taste, but for people who actually don't like sweet drinks and like sour or salty ones, this is the right drink. Cheers in Canada, cheers ...
Terremoto (means earthquake)
Ingredients: Pipeño (a sweet white wine), pineapple ice cream, bitter (usually Fernet). It starts sweet but finishes with a bitter acidity — and don't be fooled by its bright, dessert-y colors. This drink will mess you up, trust me... Cheers in Chile, Salud!!!
I wish you all an amazing day, and I really hope to see some nice drinks and/or cocktail ingredients that according to you can top one of these. I love cocktails in general, as long as they are light ... because yeah I'm lightweight so the Terremoto will most probably kill me...
Until next time and Cheers!
Oh.... and my favorite drink ???
