COLOMBIAN FOOD GUIDE🌿
part 3 feat. drinks and sweets
* #ColombianCoffee comes first on my list. And I have already mentioned my favorite brand @juanvaldezcafe and their signature #arequipe (which is a Colombian version of dulce de leche), these drinks are served hot or cold in their coffee shops. What I haven’t yet mentioned is that in the airports around Colombia those drinks can also be spiked to your liking with a shot of rum or whiskey, and it just can’t get better than that ...
* Chicha is a fermented non-alcoholic drink made from grain or fruit, so I call it Colombian version of Russian kvas (not sure which one came first). I tried the pineapple chicha, we bought from a street cart on our way back from the waterfalls and I loved it! #chichacolombiana ⠀
* Moving on to alcohol. I’m sure everyone knows of Colombian anise-flavored liquor #Aguardiente , but during this recent trip I also discovered an alcoholic beverage called #Arrechon , which is a delicious mix of #borojo , #chontaduros , anis , milk, rum etc, from what I gathered the recipe varies, depending on who’s making it, but the final product is always a delicious creamy and sweet drink, which reminds me slightly of eggnog (sans eggs), as a bonus it is also a powerful #aphrodisiac ⠀
* #Feijoa jam, now I’m not gonna lie - I AM a jam person, but for the longest time the only two I ate were raspberry and currant, this Colombian fruit jam is the latest addition to my now top 3 and only three jams I ever eat.
