So I asked the lady at the liquoria…

… what people in Bolivia drink, she led me to this bottle.

Singani is the popular local spirit, a lightly aged brandy made from two different Bolivian types of muscat grape. I picked up the bottle she recommended and the bottle of ginger ale she added to my basket and headed home to drink alone.

The label on the singani was nice enough to include the recipe for “chufly”, basically two fingers of singani and fill with ginger ale. I mixed up a chufly and gave it a whirl. It’s… uh… interesting. The funky muscat notes in the brandy plus the ginger spice in the pop are…. a thing?

Yeah, I sipped the singani neat after that one chufly.
