22. Gatorade, United States

Gatorade makes you run faster, we heard, because losers could miss out on the after-race drinks.

Bad jokes aside, the sports drink originally created to replenish the water, carbs and electrolytes lost by athletes at the University of Florida has become a global success, with a 75 percent share of the sports drink market in the United States.

21. Eggnog, England

Bring in the eggnog and the otherwise long and torturous family gathering where everyone wears hideous sweaters turns into a joyous Christmas dinner. Or that’s the idea, anyway.

This sweetened beverage of milk and beaten eggs tastes like an alcoholic creamy egg custard. Best served warm.

20. Sex on the beach, United States

When a young Florida barman entered a competition to sell the most cocktails, he called his peach schnapps, orange juice, cranberry juice and vodka concoction Sex on the Beach.

Now he's also responsible for the most juvenile of bar orders: “I’ll have Sex on the Beach, please,” snort snort.

19. Es kelapa muda, Indonesia

This popular Indonesian drink loved by kids is essentially chilled young coconut juice with colored-syrup and coconut slices.

Fresh on the taste that lasts through your whole meal, es kelapa muda is Indonesian tradition at its finest and purest.

18. White wine, Global

You know when someone pays US$117,000 for a single bottle and stores it in a bullet-proof case that will only open to his fingerprint, the drink you’re talking about is something special.

Christian Vanneque, owner of the SIP Wine Bar in Bali, forked out for a bottle of 1811 Chateau d’Yquem earlier this year to fulfill a lifelong dream.

White wine may not be the most delicious drink in the world, but it appears to attract the most ardent fans.

17. Lemonade, Egypt

Lemons, water and sugar. Doesn’t sound like much, but this summer refresher, first documented in Egyptian writings around 1,500 years ago, turns kids into happy angels and adults into happy kids.

If you can ignore the five spoons of sugar in your glass, it can even be considered healthy: it’s been said to aid digestion, relieve heartburn and control diarrhea and constipation.

16. Anything from a hotel mini-bar, Global

It’s one in the morning and you’re dying for some bottled water. Or apple juice. Or a Heineken.

Whatever it is, when you’re willing to shell out US$8 for a lousy drink in an undersized can, it damn well better be one of the most satisfying chugs you’ve ever had.
