For the second installation of my Dominican Food Week, here are some delicious beverages I have enjoyed in the Dominican Republic. Read part one here about Snacks of the Dominican Republic.
Dominicans love coffee – very very sweetened coffee. Cafe Santo Domingo is a popular brand, and is to my liking as it has a light flavor.
One of the best things about living here is the availability of fresh juices at very affordable prices. A cup of fresh natural juice usually costs under a dollar. My two favorite flavors are shown above – Fresa (strawberry) and Chinola (passionfruit).
When I lived in Santiago, my friends and I used to go to Square One, a popular diner style restaurant, to get snacks and milkshakes. They were amazing.
Bubble Tea was a huge deal in Binghamton, where I went to school, so for old times sake, I bought one at Agora Mall. This one was Green Tea Mango flavor with tapioca balls. True to form, it was overpoweringly sweet.
While I rarely drink alcohol, my favorite beverage at night is the Mojito – a mixed drink made with lime, mint, soda and rum. It is a very popular drink here and is affordable as well – about $3-4 USD.
I don’t know what these shots are, but they looked good.
Last but not least, the classic Presidente Beer, enjoyed by all. This light beer can be found everywhere on the island.
Stay tuned for the final installation of Dominican Food week! I hope you enjoyed this delectable post!
