Local liqueurs include herbas secos (dry) and herbas dulces (sweets), both are based on aniseed and packed full of herbs.
Another popular liqueur uses oranges grown on the island - almond liqueurs are also available using nuts grown throughout Majorca. A distinctly Mallorcan aperitif is a drink called Palo - made by mixing sweet caramel with bitter chinchona bark.
Spanish and imported beer (cerveza) are available everywhere - for draught beer, ask for una caña. Sherry is always fino - dry and chilled. Spanish brandy (coñac) comes in a bewildering variety of bottles and is added to coffee at any time of day. Leading brands include Fundador, Magno and Soberano. Gin is manufactured on Menorca - ask for Xoriguer brand.
Tap water is safe but everyone drinks mineral water - con gas is sparkling, sin gas is still. Freshly-squeezed orange juice (zumo de naranja) is refreshing and delicious. An unusual local drink is orxata or horchata, almond milk. Cafe solo is a small shot of strong black coffee; cafe con leche comes with hot milk and carajillo has brandy added. Tea (te) is invariably a tea-bag and if you want something less stimulating, ask for manzanilla (camomile) or poliomenta (peppermint tea).
