Residents of the Czech Republic consume more alcohol than any other country in Europe, an average of 16.6 liters per person per year, according to the World Health Organization.
Although most of that is beer, the country also has a tradition of drinking stiff liqueurs, which are usually consumed straight up.
Among these is the herbal Becherovka, which is often mixed with tonic water and lemon to create a refreshing drink called the Beton. US tipplers may be familiar with the tall green-glass bottle because Pernod Ricard USA added the spirit to its portfolio last year and re-launched the product.
