Around the World in 80 Drinks
North Conway restaurants and North Conway Bars offer some of the best food and drinks in the local area. There is plenty of variety to choose from, making it easy for you to get the drink of your choice at a price you can afford. Alternatively, you can drink in the privacy of a great room with a lovely view at Stonehurst Manor.
However, while you can settle for ordering your favorite drink (that you may or may not have had dozens or even hundreds of time before), it is always fun to try something exotic. The world has much to offer drink lovers and the following overview outlines just a few of the many options that you may want to consider trying out if you have the opportunity to do so.
If Latin culture is your thing, then try out an Aguardiente, Chicha or Guaro. These drinks are each different yet rank as some of the top 80 drinks in the world. Alternatively, those who do not drink alcohol but are looking for something to wake them up in the morning may want to consider trying mate, courtesy of Argentina.
Europe also has plenty to offer in the way of great drinks. The Absinthe from France, Austria’s Almdudler and the Koskenkorva Vinna from Finland are some of Europe’s lesser known yet great tasting drinks. However, if you want to play it safe, you can always go for Irish Whiskey or Russian Vodka.
There are also some original, great tasting drinks from the lands of Asia. Coconut Arrack from Sri Lanka is positively delicious, as is Mekhong Whiskey. Even the Middle East and Africa have some good beverages available, including the Kuche Kuche (from Malawi) and Arak (commonly drunk in Israel, Iraq and Lebanon – who knew that these countries could ever have anything in common?)
If humor is your thing, then consider drinking Shah Hawaash (from Somalia – Yes, it is a drink and not a person) or Mount Gay Rum (courtesy of Barbados). Imagine the looks you will get from people you tell about your experience.
The world of beverages is an exotic one. People from all nationalities and walks of life enjoy good alcohol combined with one or more choices of juices or sodas. There are also plenty of great teas available, thanks in large part to countries such as India, Northern Africa and the Middle East. At the same time, it is not just the exotic drinks that make the list of the world’s top 80 drinks. Coca Cola and Gin also make it on the list, thanks to their enduring popularity and universal appeal.
Cheers, or as the old saying goes, May we never be out of spirits.
