As in other countries, during festivities and meetings between friends and relatives, Vietnamese people ordinary drink alcohol one of Vietnam drinks. Alcohol in Vietnam is classified into a great number of categories, depending on the material used for processing (rice maize, potato, fruit, etc). Rice alcohol, specifically sticky rice with yellow flower alcohol, is the best. However, the most popular alcohol in Vietnam is the ruou trang from ordinary rice.

Alcohol production involves many steps: rice cooking, blending with a yeast, and distilling.

Alcohol is ordinarily kept in jars, big or small, with a stopper made of a few banana leaves to preserve the alcohol. When drinking alcohol, it is poured into small china bottles and sometimes into gourd and then drunk from small cups (buffalo-eye cup). In ancient times, alcohol was drunk in four rounds. The expression “tea three, alcohol four” comes from this practice meaning that when drinking tea, one drinks until the third cup, and when drinking alcohol, one drinks until the fourth cup.
