It's no fun to be drinking your old favourite drink when you can make new favourites as you travel. Here are some signature drinks from across the world that should not be missed while you're travelling to these places next. 



This is one of the most popular alcoholic drinks you'll find in several European countries. Schnapps is a strong, distilled hard liquor that is blended with fresh fruit juices. The beverage is best-enjoyed solo. If fruity is your preference, Schnapps is your drink.  




The happiest accident—the Sbagliato, a variation of a Negroni means a "mistake". That’s because a bartender in Milan is said to have unintentionally used prosecco instead of gin when mixing a Negroni, making a new drink altogether. If strong is your preference, Sbagliato is your drink.  




Carthusian monks blended 130 herbs, plants, and flowers to create a minty and herbal drink called Chartreuse. This drink is often sipped neat as a digestif or can be added to cocktails.  If sweet & herbaceous is your preference, Chartreuse is your drink.  




The first cocktail was the Sazerac, a blend of whisky, absinthe, bitters and sugar. Created in New Orleans in the mid-1800s, this is one of the first cocktails recognisable by name and remains a favourite to this day.  If sweet, bitter & spicy is your preference, Sazerac is your drink.  




This refreshing glass must have been enjoyed by everyone on a hot, summer day. This exotic drink is traditionally prepared with white rum, mint, sugarcane juice, lime, and soda. A rejuvenating blend of herbs, mint, and citrus flavours in the classic cocktail makes it one of the most popular alcoholic drinks in the world If sweet & fizzy is your preference, Mojito is your drink.  


pisco sour


The national spirit of Peru, Pisco's vegetal, dry (and a little musty) nature when mixed with lime juice, sugar, egg white, and Angostura bitters for garnish, makes this punchy drink. This bright profile drink will keep you coming back for more, that's our promise! If sweet, silky & herbaceous is your preference, Pisco Sour is your drink.  


Aperol spritz


Made with Aperol, prosecco, and a dash of soda water, this spritz is one of the most famous drinks around the world. You have to taste it to understand why it's so popular. If citrusy, sweet & sour is your preference, Aperol Spritz is your drink.
