In many food, liquor, and gift shops you'll spot the distinctive green bottles with the yellow-and-blue labels that hold Becherovka, the 76-proof herbal bitters manufactured in the spa town of Karlovy Vary, and if you want to know what Czechs are drinking besides beer, this is it, with a very distinctive taste with strong notes of juniper and ginger.
