50. Mango lassi, India
Some of India’s lucky workers have migrated into the air-conditioned confines  of its call centers and IT offices. For the rest, and for travelers there,  reprieve comes in the form of a cooling, sweat-beating summer drink that acts  like an internal sun screen.
Mango, yogurt and milk combine in creamy harmony making those sweltering  afternoons fighting stray dogs for the shade almost something to look forward  to.

49. Red Bull, Austria

OK, Red Bull is an acquired taste even on a good day. But nothing else in the history of drinks and beverages has made deadlines more hittable than this energy drink.

It doesn’t really help you grow wings, but when served chilled its fruit-punch flavor explodes in your face like a slap from a sugary, caffeine-marinated cod.

Feels like you're getting smacked in the brain by a fizzy caffeine wave.

48. Yakult, Japan

Drinking a carton of bacteria is hardly one of the world’s most marketable activities, however friendly they might claim to be.

But if you can get over that, a vanilla tongue soak awaits that’ll make you wish each serving was more than just 100 milliliters.

47. Guinness, Ireland

When you’re talking Guinness, perfection is 119.5 seconds. That’s how long it takes for a perfect pint of this ruby red (not black) nectar to be poured according to brand owner Diageo.

It’s packed with iron, it’s healthy (no really) and is one of the beer world’s smoother, earthier characters.

46. Pina colada, Puerto Rico

So good, someone wrote a song about it. Just looking at the drink brings you closer to a beach and sipping this mixture of coconut milk, pineapple juice and rum will send you directly to a hammock between palm trees in the Caribbean.

45. Cendol, Indonesia

Strictly speaking this is more of a watery dessert than a drink, and is served in a bowl, but at least that way you get to take bigger gulps.

The mixture of creamy coconut milk and sweet palm sugar chilled by shaved ice will is the perfect antidote to the hawkers on Kuta beach.

44. Sujeonggwa, Korea

Made from dried persimmons, cinnamon, ginger and peppercorn, sujeonggwa is essentially a liquid made of spices, boiled and steeped in a cup.

The cooking and cooling processes mean it can be hours before the final spicy, sweet and tangy flavors are ready for you. The brick-red extract is fragrant and appetizing, making the hours of preparation as agonizing as the result is rewarding.
