What to Drink In Other Countries? 8 Ways to Quench Your Thirst Abroad

And catch a buzz, if you wish.

by Madeline M.

Summer’s hot. That goes without saying. And while a nice glass of lemonade might sound refreshing, we at EF Ultimate Break prefer something a little more…exotic. Fruit skewers and drink umbrellas aren’t completely necessary, but they don’t hurt, either.

Going to Dublin without drinking a Guinness is all kinds of wrong, and you wouldn’t want to be wrong, right?

An assortment of Scotch bottles on the shelf at a liquor store.

Scotch in Scotland (duh)
