These are almost impossible questions to answer,as in any bar in Liverpool people will be drinking different things.All spirits are branded in some way,if you mean labels that you know from the UK then you will be paying at least twice as much (might be worth checking place of production though) Every establishment will have it's own house wine. As for lager,everywhere will have a spanish brand on tap,some better than others most are,superior to the pee poor likes of Carling etc, also more head friendly than the dubious Stella.

One proper local drink you should try is Hierbas, a shot or gently over ice.

Happy hour is up to you!

you don't need to be worrying about expensive drinks in san Antonio bay. you'll find completely reasonable prices there and even top brands will be cheaper per litre than in the hotspots of Liverpool.

your spelling of the drinks indicates you've had too many of them.

here's my tip for a pre dinner aperitif - palo, crushed ice, mint and a wedge of lime, not only does it taste good, but it will help with malaria if you have it!

Just back and we paid between 1.60 and 2.70 for a beer and tapas right on the front at Playa den Bossa and cheaper as we moved inland.

Bottle of house wine from 10 euro's to 14 euros for a reasonable rioja.

Fortunately the hierbas comes free in most restaurants at the end of each night and if you play your cards right, they will leave the bottle with the bill, pays to be nice to the staff, it has its rewards, a handsome tip if you are going to return is also a great help.
