What to drink in Morocco 

Social activity in Morocco often involves sitting down with a beverage, although usually a non-alcoholic one. While you won’t find bars (worth visiting, anyway), folks enjoy getting together to unwind, catch up and rehydrate over teas and juices.

Mint tea

Morocco’s signature drink is more than refreshing. Mint tea is served with reverence, as a gesture of hospitality and welcome that warms both the mouth and the heart. 

Orange juice

Citrus is big business in Morocco. While plenty of Morocco’s oranges are exported for eating and juicing around the world, the ones that make it into local blenders tend to come from small, traditional farms. The result? The juice equivalent of going from black and white to colour TV. Don't skip it!


It's important to stay hydrated while travelling in Morocco. However, tap water isn't safe to drink for travellers not accustomed to the bacteria. For environmental reasons, we recommend packing a reusable water bottle and filling it up with filtered water from your accommodation and/or carrying water purification tablets.

While not all Muslims abstain from alcohol, the vast majority of Moroccan Muslims do not drink it. Because of this, it can be very difficult to obtain alcohol in Morocco, and most travellers find it easier to abstain completely during their time in the country. While there are some bars, hotels and other accommodations that occasionally serve liquor in Marrakech, drinking outside of these places is considered very disrespectful.
