Every country has its own local spirit, in Argentina they drink Fernet, like Marmite you either hate or love it! It’s extremely bitter and people like to mix it with coca cola. In Peru you have Pisco which is used to make the infamous Pisco sours, a delicious cocktail made of egg white, lemon juice and bitters. It’s delicious and very popular in Chile and Peru. You can go visit the city of Pisco which is located a couple of hours south of Lima. Chile and Argentina are very famous for their wine, if you are looking for something cheap and cheerful Clos is your brick, in red preferably! The two countries cather for every taste and budget though so if you want to splash out go to Mendoza and embark one of the bicycle wine tours.
One of the worst drinks I have encountered in my life would be the Terramoto, meaning earthquake. It’s a typical Chilean drink made out of cheap white wine, lemonade and pineapple ice cream. If you are diabetic, please avoid at all cost or you’ll fall into a coma. I could not finish
Aguadiente, this is one of Colombian’s favourite drink. The base for this strong alcoholic beverage is absinthe so it tastes similar to your greek Ouzo or french Ricard. Mix it with plenty of water and ice.
