French culture - special drinks
Have you ever picture yourself relaxing on a French café terrasse drinking your... No, no, no. Hold on. You are about to think "café". See I know you. I am sorry to break your vision, but this is so cliché. What I want for you is the real experience, and it will as good, if not better.
Well, let's start with a Panaché during a hot day of summer. What is that are you thinking. It is a half beer, half limonade (attention, it is a soda like Sprite).
Now, let's say you would like to make it more fancy and sweet. Order "Je voudrais un Monaco s'il vous plaît."
"Un Monaco, qu'est-ce que c'est ?" are you wondering. It is a Panaché mixed with grenadine sirup, most of the time made with red fruits.
Voilà. You are no longer dreaming of a cliché, you are living the real French life style.
In our classes, we cover a lot of culture. These special drinks are covered in chapter 11 of our self-paced online courses.
