Rakia is Bulgaria’s national spirit, tasting somewhere between whisky and a fruity brandy. Here in a secret distillery in a village in the Balkan Mountains, I’m learning how to make my own… over the course of 14 hours we managed to produce 40 litres of apple Rakia, weighing in at roughly 60% alcohol!
The Tipsy Nomads: Darmon from The Bohemian Blog has sent us in this great action shot of alcohol in the making. Very unusual and interesting and I love it. Thanks for taking the time to send it in. If you are looking for a blog that is a bit different, check out Darmon’s site. He went to Australia and spent 5 weeks exploring underground tunnels and drains! Some great pictures there as well.

This XX beer was the thirst quenching prize at the end of a 10 mile long Tough Mudder. They spent 5 hours running up and down a mountain, jumping off cliffs, rolling through mud and getting electrocuted- all for a beer! Worth it? Definitely.
The Tipsy Nomads: Wow! Just Wow. That sure is a tough way to earn a beer. It must have tasted pretty good after all that exercise. What better way to celebrate than with a beer!
Jay has sent in a picture of Clara and Candice on their deck.
It is located at the Osa Peninsula in Costa Rica. It is sunset with the local beer, Imperial.
The Tipsy Nomads: Thanks for sending in the picture. What a perfect spot to enjoy a beer as the sun goes down.
Katie McGrain has sent in a great picture.
She writes : My family took a drinking trip to Dublin in March 2012. My siblings, parents and I spent 2 days literally drinking our way through Dublin. We drank beer for breakfast, snacks, lunch, dinner and dessert. It was fantastic. This is my sister and I at the top of the Guinness Brewery enjoying our very first Irish Guinness. I was too excited I couldn’t even wait to pose for a picture. Disclaimer: Drinking a Guinness in Ireland is like drinking a milkshake. No other places beer compares!

The Tipsy Nomads: What a fantastic idea! You have great taste as Guinness is a wonderful drop. I wouldn’t have waited either!
Autumn Standing from the travel blog Standing In Argentina has sent in this fabulous picture from Pipa da Praia, Brazil. It is at the Praia do Amor, which means ‘Love Beach’. She is just lounging around on a February day and drinking with class.
The drink is a typical Brazilian drink, a Caipirinha.
Sooooo much lime.
The Tipsy Nomads: What a wonderful shot! Love the lines and vectors in the picture, as well as the drink which is taking centre stage. Thanks for sending it in Autumn, love it.
Mac and Steve enjoying a Saigon Red Beer in the backpacker area, district 1 of Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
The shops just put plastic chairs and tables on the street when the sun goes down and serve drinks
Beers are about 55 cents and is drunk with ice.
Thanks for the pic, it looks like a lot of fun.
Jenny from Jenny RTW has sent in a picture from Amsterdam.
She is drinking (or rather slurping) Jenever, a Dutch Gin.
Traditionally they fill the little glasses so full that you can’t pick them up from the bar without spilling them.
So everybody has to lean down and slurp the first sip, it’s really fun!
Thanks for the Picture Jenny, you sure do have a knack for finding bizarre drinks wherever you go.
