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?
