Unlike other latin-american countries, in Chile it's illegal to drink in unlicensed, public areas (streets, parks, etc.) The laws also restrict vendor hours depending on the weekday (in no case after 3 AM or before 9 AM).

Wine

Chile produces some excellent wines, competing with France, California, Australia and New Zealand for world markets. Notable are the Cabernet Sauvignon and Carmenere in red, along with whites from the Casablanca valley.

Borgoña

Red wine and strawberries.

Terremoto

("Earthquake"): a typical Chilean drink that consists in a mix of pineapple ice cream with pipeño (like white wine).

Jote

wine and Coke.

Chilean Pisco

Brandy made from Muscat grapes. Popular brands are Capel, Alto del Carmen, Mistral and Campanario.

Pisco Sour

One of Chile's most popular mixed drinks, this consists of Pisco mixed with lemon juice and sugar. It has a delicious tart sweetness.

There's a very known conflict between Chile and Peru about the origin of Pisco. Although Pisco was registered as a chilean drink for some countries in the last century, it is historically peruvian in origin for much longer. Further, chilean and peruvian drinks are not the same product, they have different manufacturing procedures, different varieties of grape and not the same taste.

Mango Sour

Pisco mixed with mango juice.

Piscola

Pisco mixed with Coke.

Beers

Cristal and Escudo are the most popular (light lagers). Royal Guard is a fair bit tastier, Kunstmann is on pair with European imported beer.

Schop

Draught beer.

Fan-Schop

Beer mixed with orange Fanta or Orange Crush soft drink. A refreshing alternative on a hot summer day.

Others

Mote con Huesillo

A delicous summertime drink made of wheat seeds (mote) and dried peaches (huesillos) boiled, sweetened, and served cold. Typically sold on sidewalk or park stands.
