Terrible Alcoholic Drinks From Around The World





In some parts of the world, regular drinkers are a little bit more adventurous. They add random and sometimes horrible things to their drinks, tempting fate and skirting death. To them, Americans are just amateurs in the world of beverages (although we have our own strange concoctions).

If you’re ever caught in a drinking game with strangers, be prepared to do battle with these strange drinks – or be prepared to run, at least!

1.) Mekong River Eel Wine

Eels are collected from the Mekong River and fermented with wine for a year before they’re ready to serve.

2.) Cobra Wine

This drink includes the full (venomous) cobra, poison and all. It’s also highly illegal in the U.S.

3.) Bacon Vodka

America loves bacon, maybe a little too much. Take a swig of this stuff and you might swear off bacon forever.

4.) Horse “Jizz”

Although actually made from equal parts milk and beer, locals hate the concoction so much, they gave it such as obvious nickname.

5.) Rice Wine With Baby Mice

Found in Korea and China, wine drinkers will find 2-3 day old mice in their bottle that ferment for over a year.

6.) Bacon Maple Ale

Inspired by Portland’s famous Voodoo Donuts, this Rogue concoction is a dark ale that tries to recreate the company’s famous bacon maple donuts in beer form. It’s an acquired taste, to be sure.

7.) Pizza Beer

Made from leftover pizza parts, this Frankenstein of beers is our greatest nightmare.

8.) Scorpion Vodka

Infused with edible scorpions that are rendered lifeless (and harmless), this is one drink that’ll put hair on your chest.

9.) Seagull Wine

Step 1: Acquire a dead seagull. Step 2: Put it in a bottle or some type of container. Step 3: Add water, close, and let sit until fermented.

10.) Lizard Wine

Similar to the mice wine, this takes a gecko, 12 months of fermentation, and BOOM! It’s ready for tasting.

11.) Kumis

This rare and precious commodity is made from mare’s milk, and only requires hours to ferment.

12.) Mescal

Famous for the “worm” you always hear people talking about, those bottles actually have a moth larva added during the bottling process. Guess you won the Lotto!

13.) Chicha

A traditional beverage for many South American countries and native populations, Chicha is a mixture of corn and human saliva. Community members will take the unprocessed corn, chew it up, and then spit it out into a shared depository. After fermenting, you have your “drink.”

14.) Lone Star Beer

Inside Texas, they can’t sell a bottle. But travel state lines, and all of a sudden it’s a forgotten treasure. (See its cousin, PBR.)
