Top 10 Latin Drinks You MUST Try This Summer
The summer is here, and there is nothing better than a refreshing alcoholic beverage on a hot day! Today we have our Top 10 Latin Drinks you need to try this summer!
1. Pisco Sour
The Pisco Sour is the national drink of both Peru and Chile, and is so famous that there is even an annual public holiday to celebrate the drink in Peru! The drink is made with Peruvian/Chilean Pisco, with fresh-squeezed lemon juice, syrup, ice, and sometimes egg whites and Angostura bitters. It sounds perfect for a hot summer day!
2. Chili Guaro
The Chili Guaro is a traditional Costa Rican drink that already sounds pretty intense. The drink is made with Cacique-Guaro Liquor, a squeezed Mandarin Lime, tomato juice, salt, and Tabasco peppers. This may be a little different than a typical summer refreshment, the Chili Guaro has proven to be one of the people’s favorites!
This drink is a fruity cocktail from Uruguay that’s perfect for any summer day. The drink is made with strawberries, oranges, and papayas, in a complex process that masterfully mixes white wine, sugar, and soda water with the fruits.
4. Fernet Con Coca
One of the signature drinks in Argentina, this drink is typically made with extremely high alcohol content. Its taste is a mix of herbal flavors and licorice, and is often consumed alongside a Coke drink, hence the name “Fernet Con Coca.”
5. Cuban Mojito
One of the most well-known drinks on this list, the Cuban Mojito needs little introduction. Made with lime, mint, sugar, muddle, and rum, the ice cold minty and citrusy drink is sure to brighten up any summer day! Plus, you can make this easily at home! Check out one of our favorite recipes here.
The Caipirinha is the national cocktail of Brazil. Although almost everyone makes it differently, it is typically is made with Cachaca liquor, sugar, and lime. The drink is simple, yet perfect. Make sure to add some ice, and give it a try this summer. (Maybe just make it at home!)
7. El Macua
The El Macau is a national drink of Nicaragua and is a little different than the citrus cocktails mentioned in this list so far. The drink is typically made with White Rum, Papaya, and a little bit of lemon served with ice. Sugar, and/or guava juice/nectar is also often added for taste, but either way, the drink is tart and perfect for the summer!
Paloma is the most popular tequila drink in Mexico. The drink is made by mixing tequila with fresh grapefruit juice or grapefruit flavored soda and is often served with a lime wedge garnish. Some grapefruit flavor sounds perfect for the summer, doesn’t it?
Another super popular drink in Mexico is the Tepache. This drink is the only one on this list that uses Pineapple peels and rinds and is made with cinnamon, and brown sugar or piloncillo. Although this drink is typically fermented for several days, it usually doesn’t have too much alcohol content. Although it’s a little harder to make at home, you should definitely ask if Tepache is served when you visit a Mexican restaurant this summer!
10. Morir Soñando
We had to end off the list with one of our favorite drinks from the Dominican Republic. This drink takes some skill to make and is made by mixing orange juice, natural milk, ice, and sugar. We don’t recommend trying to make this at home, because it’s easy for the milk to turn the drink into a weird curd-like texture. But whenever you have a chance to get your hands on the Morir soñando, do not pass it up!
