Suriname wouldn't be the tropical paradise it is without its a wide variety of great fruit juices. Even the well known orange juice is a sensational taste, but do not hesitate to try great tropical fruits like passion fruit known locally as 'markoesa' or soursap, better known as GuanÃ¡bana locally known as 'zuurzak'. Since locals have an appetite for sweet, sugar is added to most juices you buy in bottles. For pure juice it is best to ask for fresh made juice.
The Javanese have a pink and occasionally green colored drink called dawet, which consists of coconut milk.
Try to get a local 'east-indian' to make you a glass of lassi if you have the chance.
Beer: Try the local 'Parbo-beer', which when comes in 1 liter bottles is called a 'djogo'. In 2008 Suriname finally got Parbo beer in a can, which was somewhat of a major event in the country. Guinness is a popular import beer, and for that reason Parbo also brews a very decent own stout variant: Parbo Stout. Of course imported beer is also available.Rum: Borgoe and Black Cat.
