Peru has been voted the world’s leading culinary destination for several years in a row and has won too many awards to count when it comes to its tourism.
With so much diversity to offer—from its cultures, languages, ecosystems, climates, food, and more—it comes as no surprise that popular drinks in Peru are just as unique as the country’s other attractions.
From world renowned cocktails to warm herbal brews, there are countless drinks in Peru that could satisfy the taste of any traveler.
In this video, we take a quick look at some of the unique Peruvian drinks that we love and think the world needs to know about! Which is your favorite?
