Blistering summer days are upon us, which means it’s time to test out some of the best cold drinks this world has to offer. Yes, I’m talking about cooling beverages from all countries around the globe: from Mexico to Italy and from Japan to India. Each culture has its own set of favourite ingredients to create refreshing drinks and, who knows, maybe one of these beverages will become your favourite this summer? Here are 10 cold drinks from around the world to try right now.

Horchata (Mexico)

Mexico is known for its scorching summers and spicy cuisine, so a classic cooling drink should be something absolutely different. And it is! Horchata is gentle, milky, frothy, and incredibly satiating. It can be prepared with or without milk, but the main ingredients are as follows: vanilla, sugar, rice, cinnamon, and almonds. You can add almond milk or cow milk into the mix and blend everything together. It tastes heavenly!

Neer More (India)

In countries with hot and humid climate like India cold beverages are often made using dairy. They are cold, salty, spicy, and offer the necessary escape from the sizzling heat that comes with summers. Neer more is mostly popular in the south of the country, where the climate is hot all year round. It’s made with buttermilk, lots of savoury spices, and a pinch of salt. Asafoetida can also be used in the mix. This simple drink easily quenches thirst and works as a great digestion booster as well.

Bandung (Malaysia)

If you still feel like sugary drinks make a better job of cooling you down, then go for the classic Malaysian bandung drink that’s prepared with evaporated milk. It has a very pleasant flavour due to rose water, looking bright and cheerful in the glass. It gets its pink colour from natural food dye, so keep it in mind in case you like your drinks to be 100% natural. Add some sugar, ice, and you’re good to go! It looks chic and tastes delicious.

Latte e Menta (Italy)

Italians are really crazy about latte, so it doesn’t come as a surprise that they would drink it even in summer, but with slight changes, of course. Latte a menta is fresh, frothy, and incredibly icy, which makes it one of the most favourite summer drinks in Italy. Basically it is ice latte prepared with some peppermint syrup and freshly ground mint. It’s tasty and beyond refreshing!
