The Greek summer is full of bright colors and images. As the day gets longer, our minds wander to the beaches, on holidays, and on beautiful, relaxing walks on some gorgeous islands.
But for some, the holidays and summer trips are yet to come and there are several alternatives that give us the coolness we need so desperately. For that reason, what’s better than an enjoyable drink with plenty of ice cubes that will make us relax for a while and reminisce about the most carefree summers of our childhood?
Yes, you guessed it! We are talking about the traditional sour cherry refreshment (‘visinada’) – the one made by our grandmothers and whose taste we will never forget! Sweet and tangy, served in a glass, with or without a straw but definitely with lots of ice to quench our thirst. The ‘visinada’ is still here and remains one of the must-have cold drinks of the summer!
