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.
