Drink in Lima

  • Pisco Sour is the national drink of Peru, made with Pisco, a brandy made of grapes. It is highly recommended that all adult visitors to Peru try this drink at least once before exiting the country. Visitors might be amused to learn that a controversy exists between Peru and its neighbor Chile over whose country really created the Pisco Sour, although the Chilean and Peruvian recipes are somewhat different (Chilean people like to argue that Pisco is a Peruvian spirit while the Pisco Sour recipe comes from Chile, when in fact both the main ingredient and the drink were created in Peru). Variations include Maracuya Sour, Coca Sour and Chicha Sour and are offered in several bars around town. Just be careful with it; the fresh and sweet flavour makes easy to drink too much, and you can get drunk so easily.
  • Inca Kola is the most popular soft drink in Peru, one of few sodas that Coca Cola couldn't defeat (until they bought the company). It's a yellow-fruit flavored drink that tastes like cream soda.
  • Jugos You can find great fresh fruit drinks all over Lima. Starting from 0.50 soles for a fresh orange juice at the market to some more expensive ones. Surtidos, containing several different fruits are quite tasty.
  • Chicha Morada A non alcoholic refreshing purple corn drink high in antioxidants.
  • Lucid Lima Pub Crawl is a great option if you want to party with other backpackers & locals on the cheap. Starting with an all-u-can-drink session it hits up bars and clubs in Miraflores every Saturday night
