Wine Education: Sample Local Specialty Drinks Before You Travel
A little research makes traveling more fun and enriching. Just like you look up the local attractions so you won't missing visiting special museums and historic sites, you can also sample local wines and speciality drinks before you reach your destination. That way you can judge their popularity for yourself, and maybe pick up some new favorite things.
What happens when you don't know the local specialties: Most of us have very limited vacation days so you want to get the most out of them. If you practice at home, you'll know what you want to order when you get to a local hangout instead of trying your luck, and winding up with a drink that you might dislike. Plus, if you seem unsure of what to order, servers may try to be helpful and recommend something you're probably familiar with at home, so you could miss out on a chance to try something new.
What happens when you do know the local specialties: You'll probably have a better time when you feel prepared and confident about where you want to go, and what you want to drink. As an extra bonus, you may even make a better impression on the people you meet because it will be obvious that you took the time and effort to learn something about their culture. Maybe this will even be the start of a beautiful friendship with Peruvian Pisco Sours or French champagne.
