36. Martini, United States

You could try bastardizing this sacred cocktail with various pollutants -- Appletinis? Chocolate martinis? Please stop! -- but nothing is ever going to change the magic that gin, vermouth and olives do to a long day.

35. Yerba Mate, South America

Made by steeping the leaves of the South American rainforest holly tree in hot water, yerba mate ranks among the traveling world’s most surprising and pleasing discoveries.

Served in a hollow gourd with a metal straw, the caffeinated bevvie is so much a part of the South American scene -- popular in Argentina, Paraguay, Uruguay and southern Brazil-- that drinking it there instantly turns you into a debonair local.

34. Champagne, France

You may love F1 drivers for their glamorous lifestyles, but you have to hate them for wasting all that Champagne every fortnight.

Champagne is the diamond of the drink world, taking its place on the podium as the beverage to have when celebrating pretty much anything.

In fact, take a gulp and you could almost imagine that a thousand little diamonds are bursting on your tongue, as the crisp, light fizzy beverage gets to work.

33. Carrot juice, Global

Healthy enough to feature in diet plans, but sweet enough to be enjoyed by kids, carrot juice is a jack of all trades.

Don’t get too attached though. Drinking too much carrot juice has been known to turn the skin orange.

32. Baileys Original Irish Cream, Ireland

The benevolent wizards who make Baileys credit “38,000 of the top-bred Irish dairy cows grazing on approximately 1,500 selected Irish farms mainly on the east coast of Ireland” for producing the rich cream that makes their god-like elixir the top-selling Duty Free liqueur brand in the world.

Complements everything from coffee to Cointreau, but mixes best with the opposite sex.

31. Tequila, Mexico

If Tequila says to you hot, hazy nights with salt, lime, buxom waitresses and facial grimaces all blurring together, this entry’s not for you.

The 100 percent blue agave Tequila requires no accessorizing; just sip, savor and repeat.

30. Sparkling water, Global

Tap water? What else you got on the menu tonight, monsieur, boiled hot dogs and bread crumbs?  

Sparkling, carbonated, fizzy, with gas … whatever you call it, the mere addition of bubbles transforms plain old H2O into a stylish “beverage,” conferring upon you instant élan.

At least till you start burping it all back up.
