Apart from the local fruit drinks that are usually cool, the world famous Ceylon Tea is the number one choice for hot drinks here. Coffee too is available but not many prefer it over Tea.
Coffee nevertheless can be found mainly in hotels. Sri Lanka, the world’s largest tea manufacturer, is specialized, in producing the tastiest variety of tea. You can try different flavours with or without milk. As for local alcoholic drink, the popular kind among the locals is the arrack made out of coconut. And for beer admirers, it is the local brand “Lion” which is of a good quality.
