By Naturegirl321 @SharonTEFLTips
Peru has some amazing drinks, both alcoholic and non. Here are 5 drinks that you definitely have to drink if you're going to visit Peru.

5 Fantastic Peruvian Drinks

From Oster Haztelo Facil

Algarrobina
This alcoholic drink is commonly drunk in the north of Peru. Algarrobina is made from pods of algarrobina trees and is similar to molasses. Take that and mix it with whisky or pisco, milk, egg whites, sugar, and vanilla, and you're in for a sweet treat.

Chicha Morada Juice
Made from purple corn, this non-alocholic drink is enjoyed by children and adults alike. You'll need apples, pineapple, cinnamon, allspice, cloves, and lime juice. I've never made it since you can buy it cheaply enough in Peru ready made.

5 Fantastic Peruvian Drinks

From Coca Cola


Inca Kola
Inca Cola is to Peru as Iron Bru is to Scotland. This yellow soft drink beats Coca Cola and Pepsi in sales. It tastes similar to cream soda. Coca Cola

Maracuya Juice
As I mentioned in the post about Peruvian fruits, maracuya is also known as passion fruit. When I first got to Peru I heard people rave about how delicious they were so I went out and bought a bagful. At home I patiently tried to peel them. After a while I called a friend who couldn't stop laughing at me. She told me to cut them in half and scoop the inside out. I've always put them in a blender with sugar and water to make juice. Be sure to strain the seeds off before drinking. Spanish in Peru

Pisco
For many years Peruvians and Chileans have argued over the creation of Pisco, but as any Peruvian knows, Pisco is Peruvian. So what better place to try a Pisco Sour than Peru? Made with pisco, eggs, and lime it has a real kick to it.
