In my town there are a lot of aloe vera plants is cultivated by farmers. Aloe vera is not only used as a material for beauty products, but also can be made in the basic ingredient for drink, tea, cracker, and candy.
Aloe vera drink is a refreshing drink, it takes a long time to make it. This drink is delicious when served with ice. :yum:
So, what is a typical drink from your city?

    In Bogotá the local brew is called chicha and it's made from corn. It's similar to beer (but much cheaper) and very popular with the locals.

    In my town or i would say in whole northern part of the country(INDIA) "Lassi" is in the list of one of the best drink.
  • mheredgemheredge Posts: 39,129 ✭✭✭✭
    What about chai @mohit_singh?
  • mohit_singhmohit_singh Posts: 2,202 ✭✭✭✭
    Yes! @mheredge ! You are right. If Lassi is in the list then tea is on the top of the list.you are correct mheredge.I think tea is famous in whole India.I think it would be even much more popular in nepal.isn't it?

  • mohit_singhmohit_singh Posts: 2,202 ✭✭✭✭
    Yes! @sammani you should be proud.Tea is not only popular in India and Srilanka but it is famous world wide.And you should be more proud when you know that probably 70 % of tea is been supplied by Asia to the world.And i think your country is also contributing a great on tea export.
  • BubblyBubbly Posts: 29,890 ✭✭✭✭

  • mheredgemheredge Posts: 39,129 ✭✭✭✭

    I like the tea from Sri Lanka @sammani. I visited the tea gardens there. It's a very beautiful part of the country.
  • sammanisammani Posts: 433 ✭✭✭
    @mheredge,it is really nice to hear my dear.
  • mheredgemheredge Posts: 39,129 ✭✭✭✭
    Colombia produces some of most outstanding coffee, though most of the good stuff is exported. I just saw a group of youngsters drink coffee, prepared with panela (sugar cane syrup) and cream. Too much of a coffee snob, I'm a purist who prefers it black without sugar!
  • AriemesAriemes Posts: 36 ✭✭
    Here in Italy I think that a very famous drink should be coffee (espresso).
    We are also the country which has so many good wines, indeed in my town we have several types of amazing wines. Ultil four years ago I produced my own wine in my grandfather's countryside.

    In my town, Teruel, a small city in Spain, we produce some of the best iberic ham from all over the country. This ham is made by rubbing salt all over the surface of a raw pig's leg, then you let it dry in a cool and dry place. 18-24 months later, you have a delicious ham!!
  • mheredgemheredge Posts: 39,129 ✭✭✭✭
    Oh @sunpvm! Iberic ham is soooooo good. This morning I bought mainly fish but I got a little bit of Spanish ham. It was supermarket stuff, so nothing compared to the 'real' mac, cut in slices from the animal's haunches. (I'm kicking my lips at the thought).
  • sunpvmsunpvm Posts: 27 ✭✭
    Yes, @mheredge I totally agree with you about the supermarket stuff, but, as the popular saying says here in Spain: With good hunger, ther's no hard bread (but the saying losses all of its magic when translated) :neutral:
  • mheredgemheredge Posts: 39,129 ✭✭✭✭
    Beggars can't be choosers @sunpvm. And they do say stale bread is more healthy.
  • sunpvmsunpvm Posts: 27 ✭✭
    Beggars can't be choosers. Yes, I didn't remember that! That's quite good! @mheredge
    By the way, I'm not sure I mention other users OK, for your names don't appear in blue color in my screen. Is it enough just by wrting @ and the name of the user?
  • BubblyBubbly Posts: 29,890 ✭✭✭✭
    These days we have a fresh drink of sugarcane in our city. It is really delicious. :)

  • azaaza Posts: 100 ✭✭

  • mheredgemheredge Posts: 39,129 ✭✭✭✭
    Italians are very fond of coffee. Bu they tend to drink it short and very strong. They laugh at me when I fill a 6-cup pot but I am not drinking more coffee, just more water in my coffee!
  • KhaliedKhalied EgyptPosts: 2,228 ✭✭✭✭✭
