The most popular soft drink sold in Peru is the yellow-coloured Inca Kola , a fizzy drink ( gaseosa ) so popular that it outsells even Coca-Cola. It is a true cultural icon which is drunk by virtually everyone and found everywhere, especially in the Chinese-Peruvian restaurants (called " chifas "…). Other main national drink is the chicha morada , a sweet drink made of boiled purple maize to which pineapple, sugar and ice are added. Other drinks in Peru include such national drinks as refresco de camu camu , a non fizzy drink with the flavour of the camu camu fruit. Refrescos usually refer to non-fizzy soft drinks and are available in other, more common, flavours such as orange. Apart from that, all main international soft drinks are available, as are various fruit juices and carbonated and noncarbonated water, which can be bought from corner shops, supermarkets and in restaurants. Drinking unpurified tap water is not advisable. Of the teas and mates (herbal teas) widely available are tÃ© de uÃ±a de gato (tea made from cat's claw, a plant known for its healing properties), manzanilla (chamomile), menta (mint) and mate de coca , tea made from coca leaves. The amount of cocaine in the tea is extremely low, so it won't get you high, but it will help with the acclimatisation to high altitudes as it increases the absorption of oxygen in blood. Consumption of this tea is very common in Peru, especially in the Andean regions where it is used for medical and religious purposes. Coffee is also widely available, and Peruvians mostly drink it instant. In some restaurants you'll be provided with hot water and NescafÃ©, while in others a liquid concentrate is served which you can dilute with hot milk or water. In the more cosmopolitan cities you will find cafÃ©s that serve espresso. Of the alcoholic drinks, the most popular, and internationally famous, is Peruvian national drink pisco . Pisco is a kind of brandy made of grapes that dates from the 16th century when the Spanish created it in an attempt to produce an inexpensive version of the Spanish brandy Orujo. Today one of the most popular cocktails in Peru is pisco sour , made from pisco, lime (or lemon) juice, egg white and sugar. Peru even celebrates the National Pisco Sour Day on the first Saturday in February. Of the other alcoholic drinks, there are wines from many different regions of the country: most famous for its wine production is the Ica region, where Tacama, Ocucaje and Vista Alegre are produced. Popular local beers include Pilsen Callao, Brahma, Cristal, and CuzqueÃ±a, which is exported worldwide. ArequipeÃ±a and Trujillana are regional beers and are mostly served in and around the cities of Arequipa and Trujillo. Limited mostly to the Andean region is the homemade chicha or corn beer. It is made from fermented maize through a process which has remained unchanged from pre-Hispanic times: the corn is chewed and spit into a vat which is then sealed for several weeks while the corn ferments. Different aromatic herbs are also added, depending on the region. It tastes very bitter and can be found usually only in small markets and private homes. ( Full Answer )
