One thing to try when being in Colombia
A must do in Colombia is to try Aguardiente, but what is this? It is something to light up your life.
Aguardiente means Fire water. It is a typical alcohol drink. You can buy it in the supermarket or ask in a bar for a shot. If you are with friends then ask for a bottle;).
When you first try it you will experience fire in you neck. The after taste is anise. It contains 29% of alcohol. So be careful.
Very important: To avoid having a hang-over or embarrassing moments, then alternate a shot with water!
There is a brand per region. For example: my mom comes from Tolima and there they prefer Aguardiente Tapa Roja (red cap). My favorite brand is Aguardiente Antioqueno.
My friends Sasja & Jeroen tried it. Check their reaction:
