20 International Drinks to Spice Up Your Mood

If I had to pick one thing you can find just about anywhere in the world, I’d have to say alcohol. It comes in all tastes and colors and it’s made from very different ingredients depending on where in the world you are. So, what’s the local drink of the place you’re visiting?

1. Whiskey

Believed to have been first created by the Babylonians, whiskey is always a winner. Whether you drink the Scotch single malts, American bourbons or a classic Old Fashioned, you’re going to enjoy yourself!

2. Vodka

The beginnings of vodka are linked to Russia, Poland and Sweden. Some are made from grains, other from potatoes and even rice. I’d say pick your favorite and make yourself a White Russian.

3. Pisco

If you’re traveling around Peru I guarantee you’ll drink some pisco and possibly have a massive hangover. Make sure you control your Pisco Sours or you’re in for a bad time!
