There is a Chinese saying, “A banquet is not a banquet without liquor." Another one goes, “A banquet without liquor is a breach of etiquette.”
As such, alcoholic drinks are a must for a banquet. It is customary for Chinese all over the country to drink baijiu, a strong Chinese liquor which is distilled from grain. Famous brands of liquor include Moutai and Wuliangye.
Yellow wine (fermented from rice or millet), which also has a long history, is popular with the inhabitants in East China. Winc, beer, French cognac, Scotch whiskey, etc. are also popular with many Chinese people.
Nowadays, influenced by the Western lifestyle, drinking coffee has become a vogue among Chinese young people.
