The Culture of Beverages in Spain

The quality, creativity, and above all, flavour of Spain’s cuisine have earned it international fame and it is now one of the country’s main tourist attractions.

In Spain the custom is to go out for tapas with friends, wandering from bar to bar to enjoy the specialities each one has to offer.

It is safe to say that food and drink go hand in hand in Spanish culture.

One does not exist with the other!

Whether you’re cooking up a delicious Spanish feast or thinking to mix and match between cuisines, a Spanish nonalcoholic beverage is a no-brainer for the menu! 

A Glimpse Into Traditional Spanish Drinks

Spanish gastronomy is indulgent. It would be a sin to say no to luscious nonalcoholic drinks that you can sip on while tucking into a long lunch.

Here are some traditional Spanish drinks for your inspiration!

Not something to order in a round of drinks, but this homemade broth or consommé is perfect if you want something to warm you up on a cold day and don’t fancy a coffee.

You’ll spot lots of bars with signs saying ‘hay caldo’ especially in the cooler months and you should give this consommé a go at least once. 

If you fancy, ask the barman to pour in a small drop of ‘jerez’ as sherry goes especially well with caldo.

You have to try this whether you are on an alcohol-free trip or not.

The horchata in Spain is made from the chufa or tiger nut (not to be confused with the rice milk of the same name from Mexico).

It’s a summer drink that is served cold, thick and creamy often with some cinnamon dusted on top.

Modern Twists on Classic Drinks

If you’re in a luxurious setting and want a little more glitz, you should try the cocktails without alcohol or “cocktails sin”, sometimes referred to as “cocktails virgin.”

As lovers of mojitos, we usually order a mojito-sin, but occasionally we’ll ask for the house special when we notice a fantastic assortment of fresh fruits. 

Spanish bartenders will gladly make a non-alcoholic drink for you and your children! 

Seasonal Selections

As the weather changes, so do our orders! 

While frappuccinos aren’t widely available in Spain, the country’s residents have long had a summertime remedy.

You can request a café with hielo (or café con leche y un vaso con hielo) and receive both your coffee and an ice-filled separate glass.

Once you adjust the coffee’s sweetness, pour it over the ice and enjoy!

Nothing compares to the hot chocolate and churros combo from Spain.

It’s not very sweet, not overly milky, and lusciously thick.

You can add sugar and milk to taste, but it’s usually best to just use whatever is given to you.

Even though chocolate can appear like a kid’s snack, people of all ages can be found indulging in it in the afternoons and even in the wee hours of the morning following a large night out or village fiestas.

Don’t leave Spain without trying one!

Pairing Non-Alcoholic Spanish Drinks with Food

Consider the flavor profile of the food you are preparing.

The secret is to determine which flavor is the most prominent.

It’s not always the meat; sometimes it’s the accompanying sauce or vegetables.

Pair any drink from our list of favorites to create a cracking combo! 

Spain is one of the leading exponents of the Mediterranean diet, which is based on olive oil, fresh vegetables, and other fresh seasonal food.

Another feature of the Mediterranean diet is that every meal can be a social occasion.

So we say, make it an occasion and sip on some lovely non-alcoholic drinks while.
