Try this: 14 of the tastiest travel drinks

10 most popular soft drinks in the world

Sparkling water is a perennial favorite that has become an integral part of daily meals, whether it’s lunch, snack or dinner. As a rule, a non-alcoholic beverage includes water, flavoring and a sweetener, which is sugar or corn syrup. Since a carbonated beverage contains the lion’s share of sugar, it can be included in the list of 10 foods unacceptable for a good figure.

Sometimes the drink can be replaced by drinking water, which has a number of advantages. But today we present to your attention the 10 most popular non-alcoholic beverages.

Moroccan tea

The Tuaregs know their business: sugary-sweet hot mint tea, oddly enough – the best way to quench thirst. Black tea with a few sprigs of mint and sugar is brewed in a teapot or in a glass cup. The result is an incredibly fragrant and refreshing drink. We make such tea as soon as we can get mint.

Mulled wine / Austria / Germany

Another popular version of hot wine loved to drink in winter in Germany and Austria. Traditional mulled wine is made from red wine with citrus fruits (most often orange and lemon) and cinnamon. Sugar is needed to taste.

Sangria in Spain

In Spain, try chilled sangria with fresh fruit, the best end to a hot day. Tinto de verano, the “summer wine,” is a lighter version of sangria. It has a lot of ice, so the drink is not as rich and intoxicating as sangria. In the winter, sangria, like mulled wine, is drunk hot.

Mineral water

Photo from sensidelviaggio.it Artificially mineralized water is best avoided.

Benefits:

All mineral waters have a pronounced therapeutic effect. Both natural and artificial mineral waters perfectly saturate the body with moisture, important salts and microelements, restore water-salt balance, have a beneficial effect on the digestive organs, hematopoietic and cardiovascular systems. Mineral waters are subdivided according to their indications and if their composition is chosen correctly regular consumption of mineral water can significantly improve your health. In hot weather, when the body loses a lot of salts with sweat, drinking mineral water is preferable to regular water.

Harm:

If the artificial mineralization of water is carried out on poor equipment, with poor-quality dissolving of salts and non-compliance with world standards, such water can do more harm than good. There are many manufacturers of low-quality artificial mineral water on the market, so never buy water of dubious production.

Orange wine in Andalusia

Vino de naranja, or orange wine, captivated us from the first sip with its rich sweet taste and lingering texture. It is a sherry, and you can find it in Andalusia, particularly in Cordoba.

Vietnamese coffee

The drink is unforgettable – it makes you want to go back to Vietnam just for the sake of it. It’s the kind of coffee one wants to sing an ode to – it’s so delicious. It can be with or without condensed milk. White coffee is usually too sweet, but thanks to condensed milk it acquires a thick consistency. Beware: because of the Robusta beans, people who are not used to strong coffee can have side effects. Do not drink it more than twice a day.

Kvass favourably influences the digestive and cardiovascular systems, restores intestinal microflora, strengthens immunity and has a positive effect on general well-being. Refreshes, restores strength and relieves fatigue. All of the above properties apply to natural kvasses, of which there are more and more on the shelves of our stores.

Kvass is not recommended to drink to people suffering from urolithiasis and gout. Also, kvass is not the best drink for children under three years and adults with gastritis and cirrhosis.

Egg Coffee in Hanoi

It would seem that it is possible to make Vietnamese coffee even more delicious? Well, it turns out you can. Egg coffee with an insanely delicate texture was invented in northern Vietnam. We found it in Hanoi at the inconspicuous Giang Cafe, the entrance of which looks more like a slot. They bring it hot in a tiny cup that is placed in a bowl of hot water. The taste of the egg coffee is reminiscent of tiramisu.

Kalmykian tea

An unusual tea we tried in Kalmykia and Altai. It is specific and not everyone will like it: they brew strong black tea, then add milk, butter and salt to it. Very nourishing, it complements the heavy meat dishes very well.
