We Ranked Local Nigerian Drinks

August 21, 2020

Today on Ranked! we take on the local Nigerian drinks. Are you looking to try any of them but don’t know which? This ranking is a nice place to start.

4. Pito

I don’t know if anyone knows this, but it was quite popular in the area I grew up. It was said to have health benefits, and that’s the only reason why it’s on this list. That, and the fact that it always comes handy in a very hot weather.

3. Zobo

I honestly dislike zobo. It gives me this burning/peppery sensation in my throat and I don’t know why. Maybe I’ve not tasted the right one. I wonder how people enjoy such a bottom tier drink. I only like it (small) when you add fruits to it and make a local chapman. Other than that, please throw that coloured acid away.

2. Kunu

Kunu has to be one of the best things to come out of Nigeria. From my experience, it goes well with anything, especially when it’s very cold. When it has a slight tinge of pepper or ginger, it slaps really hard.

1. Palm wine

You honestly didn’t think I would rate anything above palm wine, did you? Palm wine has been repping and will continue to rep. Let’s all rise to celebrate the undefeated champion, please.

BONUS:

Tiger Nut Milk

This is also kunu, but it’s called Kunu Aya/Tiger Nut milk. It seems Nigerians have just woken up to it. It’s on sale everywhere now.
