5. DAIQUIRI, CUBA
Cuba is one place I would love to visit. One drink that is popular all over Cuba is called Daiquiri. The main ingredients of this particular drink include rum, lime juice and sugar. You can use an alternate sweetener if you don’t prefer sugar of course. There are many different versions of the drink but the most famous ones are served at the El Floridita bar in Havana, Cuba. There is a classic by the name of The Fine Art of Mixing Drinks and it is listed as one of the six basic drinks there. There is a cocktail quite similar to Daiquiri that is famous in Brazil; it is called Caipirinha (discussed below).
4. RED STRIPE BEER, JAMAICA
You have not experienced the beaches in Jamaica if you haven’t had a few of these. It is a lager beer from Jamaica. Desnoes & Geddes Limited are the ones the brew this particular beer. Red Stripe contains 4.7 % alcohol by volume. Unlike all the fancy drinks discussed in the list, this simple beer is the drink of Jamaican beaches but just as all the other drinks, it is worth a shot.
3. MAI-TAI, POLYNESIA
This particular drink comes from Polynesia with basic ingredients including rum, Curacao liqueur and lime juice. It is said though that the drink actually originated at a restaurant in California in the year 1944. A rival of the same restaurant claims to have created this drink in 1933 in Hollywood, but of course we do not have sufficient data available to put our fingers down. The word actually is Maita’I which means ‘good’ but the name for the drink is written as two separate words. Polynesia comprises of one thousand different islands and the drink is very famous in those regions.
2. CAIPIRINHA, BRAZIL
This happens to be the national cocktail of Brazil and it is made with cachaca, which is a sugar cane rum, sugar and lime. It is a distilled alcoholic beverage and needless to say, it happens to be the most famous in Brazil with popularity on constant rise in many parts of Europe and United States.
1. PINA COLADA, PUERTO RICO
The drink is sweet in nature, comprising of rum-based cocktail, cream of coconut and pineapple juice. It is usually garnished with a slice of pineapple at the rim of the glass. It is the official drink of Puerto Rico and has been the same since the year 1978. Non-alcoholic versions of this particular drink are also available, but let’s be honest, there is not point. The drink itself was created at the Caribe Hilton’s Beachcomber Bar in San Juan, Puerto Rico on the 16th August of year 1954.
