Five Drink Everyone Should Try on Their Pub Crawl

Pubcrawls has become a trend amongst young people and tourists everywhere, including Barcelona. With these spontaneous nights-out, exploring the culture of a country can be quite hectic, but not out of the realm of possibilities. When it comes to nightlife, Spain is one of the best destinations you can choose. Unlike other places, here you can go clubbing and drinking until early morning.

Here are the top 5 drinks everyone should try when they are on a pubcrawling spree in Barcelona.

BEER

From the smallest, least expensive beer that a bar will offer you – caña, to the largest glass they’ll have, normally about a pint. Most bars in Spain will only have one beer on tap (though some will also have a non-alcoholic version, or a dark one).

SANGRIA

Commonly made from red wine, fruit juices, soda water, fruit and sometimes brandy. This refreshing party drink is a true staple in Spanish culture and you must try it at least once while here!

SIDRA

In its most basic form, cider is simply fermented apple juice. Because it’s low in alcohol, it is easy to consume. Watch as your waiter lifts the cider bottle three feet above your head and pours the drink into your glass.

CHUPITOS

Meaning shots of alcohol in Spanish. Spain offers more than 200 different shots, they most definitely have something that fits your taste! The creativity of the owners is truly unique!

ABSINTHE

Only for the most daring. This highly alcoholic, anise-flavoured spirit has often been portrayed as a dangerously addictive hallucinogen and at one point in the 20th century had been banned in the United States and in much of Europe.

Pub crawls are definitely turning strangers into friends. Therefore, make sure that you try these drinks when in Spain. The only thing to remember is: Beer is your friend here. Shots are your enemy.

And if you are interested in exploring the nightlife of Barcelona, remember, barcrawls take place every night of year!
