What are your favorite adult beverages when you are in Croatia? We will be traveling in and around the country for a couple of weeks -- a week on a boat/bike tour and another week driving - Dubrovnik, Zagreb, Split, and points in between.
Can you talk about the wine served in Croatia? Have you tried Croatian wines, or do you opt for Italian or other wines? Is it "safe" to order the house wine in Croatia the way it is in Italy? (I've never had a bad house wine in Italy.)
I have heard that everyone in Croatia has their own homemade cordial. What is it called? Is there glass-raising or clinking and a traditional word or toast beforehand when drinking this or other adult beverages? Cheers? Salute? Cincin? LeChaim? Would love to know the custom.
Or do you instead have a favorite brand of beer to recommend? I would really appreciate the benefit of your experience. Thanks!
