1Drink Alcohol With Caution
It’s a smart idea to be vigilant about alcohol in a country known for its strong potable culture. Any Eastern European spirits that contain more alcohol than other people believe and you don’t want to drink more than you can unwittingly manage. This is particularly important when you are an independent traveler.
The Latvian Spirit known as black balsam is 45% alcohol, which is 5% higher than other comparable spirits, according to the travel site Away with Maja. Try to be vigilant about drinking and still know just what you drink.
