Favorite thing: The most popular alcoholic drink in Sri Lanka is Arrak made from fermented coconut. There are different kinds called Old, New, Mendes,Blue,Special etc, each one has their own slightly different taste which is bit like rum. Arrak is very pleasant when drunk by itself or mixed with fanta orange, coke or ginger beer, but a word of warning don't mix different types of Arrak or mix with other spirits or else you will find yourself with a massive hangover, find the Arrak that you like the taste of and stick with it.
