Guyana is an ideal destination for people who want to experience the ambiance of the Caribbean style. Sitting at the beach and staring over the clear blue waters with a cocktail drink in your hand is a nice way to enjoy your stay in the country. Apart from cocktails, here are some other drinks you can try out.
Peanut Punch is a drink that you will find in almost every gathering of people in Guyana. A visit to the island without having a taste of this drink is not a good idea at all. Peanut Punch is a popular non-alcoholic beverage that is prepared from shelled peanuts, nutmegs, condensed milk, and coconut milk. Due to the high energy level it yields from the high protein and fat content, the drink is often regarded as a man drink. It can also be found in other Caribbean countries, including Jamaica.
There’s nothing more refreshing like an iced soda from a bottle. I-cee Soda is a popular drink that you can find in any grocery stores throughout the country. It comes in six different flavors, which include Cream Soda, Banana, Pineapple, Orange, Big Red, Tangerine, and fusion flavors such as Pear, Green Crush, Pink Grapefruit, Apple Strawberry, Fruit Punch, and Ginger Beer. The drink is known as a favorite of people in the country, especially those living in the villages. You should definitely have a taste of it while on holiday in the country.
Just as some drinks are served on a regular basis, there are also drinks for special occasions or seasons. Ginger Beer is a light refreshing drink made from ginger. It is mostly served during Christmas time in many Caribbean households. It is prepared by soaking grated ginger and various spices in water and then stored in a cool place to ferment. The mixture is then strained, sweetened, and then served over ice after the fermentation process. You will find the homemade version simply amazing because of its fresh taste, but it can be found in local grocery stores throughout the country.
A drink you wouldn’t want to miss out while visiting Guyana is Tamarind Drink. It is a sweet, tart, and highly refreshing drink that is good for you. It is an ideal drink to quench your taste on a hot summer day definitely. Tamarind juice is mostly served in dinner parties and family gatherings. The drink has an instinctive taste, almost like a juicy acidic sourness with a slight tangy sweetness. You could also sweeten the juice if you are not comfortable with the taste.
Although known to be a popular beer in Guyana, Corona Extra has its origin from Mexico. The drink is seen as a favorite beer among people in the country because of its tantalizing taste. It served mostly in bars and pubs around the country where you can stroll in and settle for a bottle. It is also the perfect drink to keep you company while spending time on the beach.
