9 ways to quench your thirst this summer

9 ways to quench your thirst this summer

Summer’s hot. That goes without saying. And while a nice glass of lemonade might sound refreshing, we at EF Ultimate Break prefer something a little more… exotic; fruit skewers and drink umbrellas aren’t completely necessary, but they don’t hurt, either.

Our well-hydrated team of travel experts and Tour Directors compiled a list of our go-to drinks to beat the heat in these summer destinations. Check ‘em out and go sip one for yourself. Your taste buds (and internal body temperature) will thank you.

Life in Paris doesn’t get much better than popping champagne in front of the Eiffel Tower…until you add a baguette.


2. Fresh fruit juice in Belize

Just you, the beach, and the fresh flavors of Belize. And probably a couple monkeys, too.


3. A glass (or pitcher) of sangria in Barcelona

Get your daily serving of fruit sipping sangria in Barcelona. Your mom would be so proud.

Pour yourself some red and raise a glass, because when in Rome. Plus, you need to wash down all that pasta.


5. Beer in Munich

Nothing says #fresh like classic cars and cold mojitos, especially when you’re enjoying them in Havana while rocking a Guayabera shirt.


7. Horchata in Costa Rica

Sugar and spice and everything nice, horchata is a South American classic that Costa Rica does right.


8. A Guinness in Dublin

Going to Dublin without drinking a Guinness is all kinds of wrong, and you wouldn’t want to be wrong, right?  


9. Scotch in Scotland (duh)

Start remembering words like “peaty” and “smoky” because the moment you cross the border into Scotland, you’re a whisky person. Just let it happen.
