Blogmas 2020- Day 7: Drink With Memories

Do you find that drinks don’t get as much coverage when talking about past travels? Yet some of my fondest travel memories are drinks that I’ve tried, whether I had like them or not and where I was exactly when I drank it. Whether it be alcoholic, a delicious fruit smoothie or some sort of home brew.

Some drinks are hard to replicate back home due to limited ingredients or aren’t stocked in your home country. I’ve googled every mainstream liquor supermarket here to find Modelo beer but cannot find it! Perhaps that’s the beauty of drinks. They cannot be easily obtained at home and maybe by default leave such a positive impression in hindsight. The magic of travel is that you cannot bring it all back with you and maybe these happy moments are where they belong, scattered behind you where you once were.

Why not prepare a drink this month your own way that brings you back to a fond memory?

I’m off to Sevilla.

  1. Such an interesting thought! It’s true that we usually focus more on food recipes rather than drinks, even though each place has its own drink (or drinks), which has usually a lot of history behind it! Thanks for sharing and enjoy your trip to Sevilla! 😊

  2. Actually, I am a huge fan of vacation drinks – I try to have a special one every holiday I take.
    Even though I will not make it to London for the Christmas this year, my drink still be hot chocolate with marshmallows (it is hot in Singapore, but we will make do).

  3. You are right, drinks don’t get as much coverage when talking about past travels. I’m thinking about a drink I had last Christmas in Mexico called Michelada, which calls for Victoria beer. It is one of the most popular beers people drink in San Luis Potosi. Unfortunately, I can’t find it in the U.S. so I have to use another beer to make Micheladas.
