I can vouch for the Caipirinha.  It's actually made from green lemons instead of limes and yes it is delicious.  I brought home 4 bottles of Cachaca from my recent trip to Brazil.  It's good stuff.

A close second for tasty drinks in Brazil is beer, I had a couple of decent brews down there. Bohemian is really great and Skol is nice and light for the hot climate without being flavorless.

It's unfortunate. I would have liked to have read an article about exotic booze from around the world instead of a fratboy intern's blog about crawling around Wikipedia for half an hour.

Mantango in Cameroon, palm wine is prevalent all over Africa and Asia, and why not? Nothing like a big, tall bottle of warm jizz to cool you off after working in the heat all day.

Well Said.

tom servo bit me: Or the difference between "Baltic" and "Balkan?"


Yikes.


The closest thing we could find to an Algerian national drink (by searching on Wikipedia) is Turkish coffee.

I was going to say the same thing about Portugal and Port, so thanks for the non wiki-bro link.

The national drink of japan is decidedly NOT shochu. What most of the world knows as Sake (literally "alcohol") is actually called Nihonshu (literally "Japanese alcohol").  The freaking country's name is right there!  Shochu ain't bad, but it not nearly as ubiquitous, or revered, as Nihonshu.

How is this not Ecuador's national drink?

Jakesta: Germany = Beer

Italy = some sort of red wine
America = Bloody Mary ( no research was done to support this claim )

I don't know what brands they have these days, but I can remember from long ago that Brahma was decent, but Antarctica was practically water. Of course, I wasn't the best judge of beer back when I was fif... I mean, whatever the legal drinking age is there.

Caipirinhas actually are made with limes, but the variety grown in Brazil are different in color and flavor than what we've got up north. Three article also has the picture wrong; they mash the fruit beforehand to allow the juice to mix into the drink. Here, though, you're better off pouring margarita mix into a couple shots of cachaça.

I noticed that most of the South American drinks are aguardiente.  I'm not entirely sure their analysis of it is very good.  I have a bottle of a type of "aguardiente" from Venezuela called Miche Andino.  I call it "Bandito" because the bottle has a straw hat and a bandana around the neck.  It's a very bizarre alcohol.  I'm not quite sure what to make of it.  Or with it, really.  I mixed it into a drink once and the results were bizarre.  I mixed a variety of fruit juices (guava, papaya, mango, pineapple) with some fine venezuelan rum (Santa Teresa 1796).  When I added the Miche Andino, a strange thing happened.  It started to...."crystalize"?  Or atleast it started to become very cloudy.  And it spread slowly throughout the entire glass.  Which makes me wonder if it's just a coincidence that the place it was made in is Bosque Nublados or "Cloud Woods".  Either way, a very strange drink.  Certainly not "vodka-lite" as the article suggests.
