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!

Mini Guide to Indonesia

Indonesia is the largest archipelago in the world with just over 17,000 islands. It has a population of roughly 261 million people, though over half lives on the island of Java. The nation has a long trading history with other Asian countries and has also been invaded by the Dutch and English Empires. Indonesia is therefore a melting pot of cultures with the largest Muslim population in the world, but also with strong influences from Hinduism and Buddhism, particularly in Bali. It’s also a nature lover’s paradise, with plenty of fauna, volcanoes, beaches, and diving sites.

Cuba is the largest island in the Caribbean at 109,884 square kilometers, and the second-most populous. It consists of the island of Cuba, Isla de la Juventud, and many small archipelagos.
