French beverages include a large variety of drinks, alcoholic as much as non alcoholic ones. Wines of course represent an important part of every French meal, and some of the varieties are famous world wide. Among the white ones, there is the Chardonnay, Sauvignon, Pinot gris, Ugni blanc and Muscadelle. Red wines include Merlot, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon as the most famous ones. Liquors, coniages, and French champagne are also specific beverages served especially in restaurants. Local dinners will also serve large varieties of beer. Flavored beverages include pastis, aniseed, cider drinks and mint tea. Figutte is a traditional French beverage, made of juniper berries and dried figs, and can be served almost anywhere, since it is representative for all country’s regions. Shakes, light coffees, sodas and cocktails are available in many flavors and variations, but usually are not served in fancy restaurants. You can have them at local dinners or you can prepare them yourself.
