Hervido de Piña Nariñense( Colombian Pineapple Hot Drink)

Hervido is a traditional hot drink from the Nariño department of Colombia. Hervidos are made by boiling fresh fruit juice, such as pineapple (piña), passion fruit (maracuya) or blackberry (mora) with sugar, and then the hot juice is mixed with aguardiente, an anise flavored liquor from Colombia. Hervidos are a wonderful cocktail for the cold weather.

If you want a nonalcoholic version, feel free to try them without aguardiente. I make that version for my kids and they love it.

Buen provecho!

    Looks and sounds fabulous! In your country, one can get so many wonderful fruits and I could see myself switching to a diet of 75% fruits and fruit drinks such as this one.

    I tasted aguardiente when I was in Colombia. My memory is that it was like drinking anise flavored fish hooks. The beer was good though and, although I’m not a rum drinker, I’m told that Colombian rum is absolutely the best.
