Are you a proud alcohol-connoisseur? Do you like to try different things while traveling around? Then, here is a challenge for you! All you have to do is taste the drinks that are easily available in different parts of the world. Sounds simple? Wait till you hear the names. I am sure you will never want to have deer penis or pig placenta in your glass. But then, I am someone who thinks even beer has a weird smell. So, do not take my word for it and check how many of these you can actually drink -
1. Horse milk - Because it's nutritious
Someone took the concept of ‘horsepower’ a little too seriously and invented ‘Kumis’. It is a drink made from a mare’s milk that is fermented. If you think it is off-putting, then let me remind you - we are just starting with the list. Though I agree it is surely among the weird non-alcoholic drinks.
Where? - Kazakhstan, Mongolia, Kyrgyzstan
2. Bird’s nest soup - Time to increase the libido
Let’s collect the bird’s saliva, dry it, dissolve it in the water, and call it a soup - said no one ever. Wait, that’s actually said by Chinese people! I can never understand how doing all this with bird’s spit will help you enjoy your love life.
Where? - China, Taiwan, Singapore
3. Deer penis wine - For the stronger you!
Chop off the penis when a deer is (preferably) alive, slice it, roast it, and soak it in an alcohol - Said the Chinese, again! It is the traditional medicine in China that helps in curing injuries and is also believed to be aphrodisiac.
Where? - China, Singapore, Taiwan
4. Gilpin Family Whisky - For the ‘different’ flavor
Do not be fooled by the regular appearance of this whiskey. It is made from the sugar that is extracted from the urine of the elderly, type-two diabetic patients. It is surely one of the weird alcoholic drink. So, if you think this whiskey is a little sweeter, you know the reason!
Where? - Rotating exhibitions
5. Bull testicle beer - For.. I have no idea
It was all an innocent April fool’s joke until Wynkoop Brewing Company decided to go ahead and make a beer from bull testicles. Today, it is loved all over Colorado and is gaining popularity with each passing day.
Where? - Denver, Colorado
6. Human toe shot - Only because it sounds interesting
If you like your drink garnished with a real, well-preserved, human toe, this one's for you! (Though I do not know a single soul who likes to see an amputated human toe in a drink.) Rules to follow? Do not ask questions and do not gulp down the toe.
Where? - Dawson City, Canada
7. Three lizard drink - To scare off the evil spirits
I cannot look at a lizard, live or dead, and people are busy drinking a liquor with three lizards in it! Chinese and Vietnamese believe that it is good for health and wards off the evil spirit. I am okay with all the bad spirits, just keep this bottle thousands of miles away from me.
Where? - China and Vietnam
8. Pig placenta drink - Good for pregnant women
Eating a pig is not enough, you have to wait for a female pig to give birth to piglets and then collect the placenta to make your drink healthier. I am so glad someone else is doing all the hard work so that I can get the weirdest drink ready in my hand. But, do they know that I can never in my life take a sip of this popular drink?
Where? - Japan
I knew people like to read everything that is weird. But, I never knew they also like to drink everything that is strange. Cheers? No, thanks!
