Tizana. Venezuelan Tropical Fruit Salad Drink

In Venezuela, a Tizana is so common, yummy, and healthy treat. We call it Tizana but it’s actually like a tropical fruit salad and a fruit punch juice =D.

I personally love it. It’s refreshing and so purifying. During Summer it’s the perfect treat.

To calm the typical heat of the summer days, I love preparing a Fruit Tizana, and feel closer to my beloved Venezuela.

It is a very refreshing mix of fruits, juices or citrus fruit juices, and crushed ice. We usually drink it at any time of the day. In my case, I would buy a “mini” (½ liter) of Tizana from Fruits for breakfast, and boy did I have breakfast!

In any corner or on the beach of my country you will find a “cart” and a nice gentleman who sells Tizanas. Also, in breakfast or coffee shops, you can find tizanas. This to say it’s a tradition.

Why is this recipe special?

Well on one hand, it is something different and uncommon outside Venezuela, it is not an actual fruit salad or a fruit punch, this Fruit Tizana has more liquid and if you want you can add a little Rum or Geneva to its preparation.

For this occasion, I have served her in these cute ice cream glasses but you can serve it in any glass or even a bowl if that makes you happy.

It’s SO easy to make that you can make it any time with any fruit you like. You don’t need to have all the fruits I’m mentioning but of course the more the better =D. You can have this treat at any time of the day. Yummy

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Tizana made of?

The drink must have its origins in Spanish sangria, but a tizana lacks the red wine and is prepared with a wider variety of tropical fruits. The key ingredient is grenadine (granadina in Venezuela), which gives the tizana its distinctive purple/red color.

What is Venezuela’s favorite drink?

Tizana is a Venezuelan drink. As you may or may not know, in Venezuela we have summer-like weather all year long, so this drink is very popular. It’s refreshing and delicious. It is made with juice, tons of different chopped fruits, and grenadine.

  7. HI Cami! I’m hopping over from Let’s Get Real to check out your fruit salad. It really looks delicous. I just love fruit salad the juice is my favorite.

I really like that you added extra juice and served it in a bowl so you don’t have to worry about the extra juice.
