What Do We Drink On Christmas Eve And On Christmas Day Here In Portugal


pera-mancaLast week I wrote about what we eat, today I will write about what we drink:

Usually we drink red wine and Portugal has excellent red wines – Barca Velha and Pêra-Manca are the most famous, but their high price does not make them accessible to the majority of us (a bottle can cost around 400 dollars ) But fortunately for less than 3 dollars you can already buy a good wine.

The desserts are accompanied by Oporto wine (prices can range from about 5 dollars to over 4 thousand …) or by Whiskey or even by Portuguese Brandy or Madeira Wine, with prices ranging from affordable to almost impossible ….

Of course we also drink water and tea (the most famous is produced on the island of São Miguel in Azores since 1883 with the brand Gorreana and its price exceeds 35 dollars per kilo).

No matter what we drink or  eat, Christmas is very special for almost all of us.
