Today’s question comes from Betty, one of my Facebook followers. Betty says: “I’m going to Spain in a few weeks and I’d like to know how to order drinks in Spanish. Can you help me?”
Being able to order food and drinks in Spanish can make your vacation a lot more enjoyable. And, the good news is, you only need to know a small set of words, and a few sentences, to have a truly memorable experience.
Drinks in Spanish: 10 drinks
Today I bring you ten everyday drinks in Spanish, and 3 very common sentences with those words. So you can start ordering drinks in Spanish today.
First, we’re going to practice saying the ten words. Let’s hear them. Repeat after me:
el agua :: the water
la botella :: the bottle
el café :: the coffee
la cerveza :: the beer
la copa :: the glass
el hielo :: the ice
la leche :: the milk
el té :: the tea
el vino :: the wine
el zumo :: the juice
Let’s say those 10 drinks again. Repeat after me.
