[FONT="]50. Mango lassi, India[/FONT]
Mango, yogurt and milk combine in creamy harmony making those sweltering afternoons fighting stray dogs for the shade almost something to look forward to.
38. Mojito, Cuba
It’s named after a Cuban seasoning, or an African amulet; it was invented by the Cubans, or in honor of Sir Francis Drake; it should be made fresh and simple, or you can change it up whatever your whim. All depending on who you ask.Everyone has their own take on the mojito, reportedly Ernest Hemingway’s favorite drink, so that the mix of white rum, lime, sugar, mint and soda water, can turn you into the life of the conversation, or a flailing, wailing drunk.
36. Martini, United States
34. Champagne, France
Champagne is the diamond of the drink world, taking its place on the podium as the beverage to have when celebrating pretty much anything.
[FONT="]28. Chocolate milkshake, United States[/FONT]
This artery-clogging third musketeer (after burger and fries) of the fast-food world gives a sweet ending to all family meals out.And it may not even be as fattening as you think -- the amount of energy spent trying to slurp this thick sludge up the straw must burn off at least a few of those calories.
[FONT="]18. White wine, Global[/FONT]
White wine may not be the most delicious drink in the world, but it appears to attract the most ardent fans.
[FONT="]17. Lemonade, Egypt[/FONT]
Lemons, water and sugar. Doesn’t sound like much, but this summer refresher, first documented in Egyptian writings around 1,500 years ago, turns kids into happy angels and adults into happy kids.If you can ignore the five spoons of sugar in your glass, it can even be considered healthy: it’s been said to aid digestion, relieve heartburn and control diarrhea and constipation.
[FONT="]16. Anything from a hotel mini-bar, Global[/FONT]
It’s one in the morning and you’re dying for some bottled water. Or apple juice. Or a Heineken.Whatever it is, when you’re willing to shell out US$8 for a lousy drink in an undersized can, it damn well better be one of the most satisfying chugs you’ve ever had.
[FONT="]9. Gin and tonic, England[/FONT]
Trust the Brits to make a medicine (the quinine in tonic water was used by the British East India Company to prevent malaria) more palatable by throwing in some booze.Still, we’re glad they did, as the clink-clink, glug-glug, fizzzz of a gin and tonic being poured is about as perfect an introduction to a balmy evening as it’s possible to find.
[FONT="]8. Red wine, Global[/FONT]
Thank the Georgians. The region in what is now known as Eurasia is credited with the first wine production 8,000 years ago.Thanks to them we now have such enjoyable pairings as beef and Merlot, tuna and Pinot Noir and drunk Scottish students and Buckfast.
[FONT="]7. Orange juice, United States[/FONT]
O.J. earns a spot on our list just for reminding us of our childhoods. The refreshing, tangy, wholesome drink, first mass-produced and distributed in the United States around 1915, has always reigned king over its try-hard cousins, apple, watermelon, pineapple and tomato.
