6 Things You Can Drink Anywhere You Travel (Slideshow)

To avoid unwanted illnesses when traveling, opt for these 6 safe drinking choices

Coffee

Hot drinks are generally a safe option, as temperatures above 60 degrees Celsius kill most organisms. If you can, drink your coffee black, or make sure that the milk product used is pasteurized, as un-pasteurized milk products are known to possibly cause foodborne illness.

Tea

Like coffee, tea is a good drink choice, as boiled water gets sterilized and is generally safe to drink. An even better option is tea brewed from bottled water.

Bottled Carbonated Beverages

Canned or bottled carbonated beverages, such as carbonated water and soft drinks, are safe drinking options, as the carbonation assures that the bottle has not been previously opened and refilled from the tap.

Bottled Water

Bottled water is a safe drinking option, but make sure to check the seals on bottles to ensure they have not been refilled with tap water.

Beer

Beer, if served from a closed bottle or can, is a safe drinking option when traveling, though should clearly be consumed in moderation (and only be enjoyed if you are of legal drinking age, of course).

Wine

Like beer, wine is usually safe to drink if served from a closed bottle, though it too should be consumed in moderation (and only be enjoyed if you are of legal drinking age).
