Best Beverages in Maldives

If you are planning on dedicating hours in the sun to acquire the perfect tan, it will be worth your while to read-up on the best thirst-quenching beverages that the Maldives has to offer.


Mint Tea Over the Sea

This globally adored favourite is best served steaming hot. It is prepared by first swishing a small amount of hot water in a teapot and combining mint, green tea and sugar in the pot. The rest of the water is added and left to brew. After about 3 minutes the preparation is strained and served.


Arabian Coffee for the Soul

A global drink, loved by many this is made by heating water, coffee, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon and cardamom in a saucepan until foam is seen on the top. It is then served immediately, and in order to maintain authenticity, it is not filtered.


Simple Masala Chai (tea) in Naladhu

Imagine stretching out on a hammock over the ocean or on the sands of a small and exotic island while staying at a private resort such as Naladhu, Maldives. Order yourself a cup of traditional Masala Chai which is made by boiling water, sugar and tea together with ginger, cardamom, cloves and cinnamon. Milk and condensed milk is then added, the spices are strained, and there you have it - a perfect cup of tea to accompany the stunning views of the tropical sunset.


Lemonade on the beach

Relatively simple to make, this concoction consists of lime juice and sugar syrup which are combined together and cooled; the perfect antidote to a scorching day spend under the sun, this is guaranteed to cool you off even in the hottest of climates.


Chocolate Smoothie for a Sugar rush

Got a sudden craving for sugar? Order a chocolate smoothie to reward yourself with the perfect sugary treat. The popular beverage consists of ice, ice cream, chocolate milk and banana blended together into a perfectly smooth mixture. You could ask for a drizzle of chocolate sauce and a dusting of cocoa powder on top for that extra punch.


Basic Fruit Smoothie for a Refreshing Morning

If you are looking a refreshing and healthy breakfast item to have while on vacation, order a basic fruit smoothie. This popular meal replacement beverage is usually made with exotic fresh fruit of the season blended in with ice and a desired juice in order to form a deliciously hydrating concoction.


Mocha Delight for a Coffee Lover's Twist

If you need your caffeine fix on your tropical vacation, but you also want to try it with a twist go for a Mocha Delight. Strong black coffee mixed in with chocolate ice cream topped off with chocolate sprinkles and whipped cream. Mocha in Maldives...sounds delicious doesn't it?


Suji toShare with your Better Half

Conclude your romantic dining in Maldives with an order of this authentic local creation that can be sipped or spooned out depending on personal preference. Made of semolina which is known to have a cooling effect, the flavor of spices, dry fruit, milk and ghee complement each other perfectly. This drink may be a bit on the heavier side, so order one to share between the both of you.


Feyru Fani (Guava Juice) to Replenish

Guava is a tropical, exotic fruit known for its replenishing qualities. Packed with a variety of vitamins and medicinal benefits, a Feyru Fani or Guava juice could kick start your day or reinvigorate you after a grueling adventure in the sun.


Karaa Fani (Watermelon Juice); the Ultimate Thirst Quencher

Another popular among many tourists, this blend of watermelon and sugar with some ice or water could keep you going for hours. Go for that tan you have been dying to get armed with sunscreen, shades and a tall glass of this drink in order to remain well-hydrated.
