Surprisingly, one of the best known Corfiot products and another trademark of the island is ginger beer (in Corfiot tsitsibira!). It was introduced by the British and became very popular with the locals. So popular that when the British left, they went on making their own tsitsibira! It’s very refreshing and has a unique taste.
Ginger beer is said to be very good for you: It is good for the stomach and it can cure diarrhea and nausea. Ginger may also decrease pain from arthritis and may have blood thinning and cholesterol lowering properties that may make it useful for treating heart disease.
Here’s a recipe to make your own ginger beer, the Corfu way:
