Tuba, pronounced “tu-BAH,” is a Filipino wine made from coconut flowers, explains Sam Fujisaka. Unfortunately, he also says it’s not very good.

Eat_Nopal disagrees: “I have had very tasty Tuba in Guerrero that is satisfying to the soul in the same way as a good Tejuino or Tepache.” Eat_Nopal also advises that, if you taste tuba and expect it to compare with a fine wine, you’ll be disappointed. Best to enjoy the sparkling, lightly alcoholic drink on its own terms.
