First of all, drinking obviously isn’t done in an obnoxious way in Italy. A glass of wine, a beer, champagne — whatever it is you are drinking, it’s there to compliment the meal.
I have loads of photos to share with you of all of the bottles of wine we drank while touring the country. But I’ll save those for another day! Below are a few photos of a couple drinks that I really enjoyed. I typically drink Peroni, but one afternoon I introduced my dad to Birra Moretti, and he enjoyed it! It’s kind of like the “cheaper” beer over in Italy, but it’s nice and light and refreshing. The other drink I enjoyed was a small individual-sized bottle of Prosecco — an Italian champagne.
The funny part about these two drinks is I wasn’t drinking them at a restaurant or in our hotel room… In Italy you can purchase a drink and sip it while you walk the streets. (Don’t ever think about doing that in the U.S…) So on the way to dinner, some nights we would grab a drink and enjoy it on the way to the restaurant!
