Alcohol, no matter what the variety, can definitely tickle anyone’s taste buds (and eventually, their brains). In fact, liquor in the Philippines alone can definitely tantalize both local and foreign drinkers; and speaking of that, alcoholic beverages hailing from faraway lands can definitely hold their own torches.
Each variety of alcohol from different corners of the globe have something to show off, hence their widespread recognition from their respective countries. If you’re up for a little trivia about alcohol, here are some of the best drinks from different countries around the world:
1. Lambanog (Philippines)
This drink is definitely the Philippines’ biggest pride. With an alcohol content of over 80 to 90 proof, this coconut wine can definitely turn some heads around. Indeed, dirty jokes and drunken mishaps run afoul with every sip of this drink.

In fact, this is one of the most famous drinks for any grand occasion to date, whether it be a successful corporate meeting, a wedding, or even those occasions where you just feel like cracking open a bottle and enjoy the fizzy goodness.
One of the best things about champagne is its taste and flavor. Winemakers who specialize in making this very beverage add just a bit of sugar during the fermentation process, which in turn creates the sweet flavor everyone knows and loves. Just be sure to be extra careful when opening up a bottle as the pressure inside can be a bit frightening.

Sangria is the drink of the summer. Not only is it suited for that particular season, but pretty much any occasion you feel like it.
