Not all drinks are made equal, and some are certainly weirder than others. Here are 6 strange drinks from around the globe that may very well slake your thirst. ...Or on the other hand make them complete a spit-take.
Kumis (Horse Milk Alcohol)
Horse milk is the basis of an alcoholic drink called kumis, loved by the people in nations like Mongolia, Kazakhstan, and Kyrgyzstan. The milk is not usually consumed in its pure form because it is a strong laxative. It is no big surprise that Central Asian individuals have been fermenting and transforming it into alcohol for centuries: the earliest recorded notice of kumis dates from the year 5 BC.
Kumis isn't highly alcoholic, like beer in its quality and form of consumption. Be that as it may, it is nearer to wine in its creation, since the aging occurs from fluid sugars (fructose in wine, lactose in kumis) rather than grains. Of all the drinks on this list, it is by far the most reasonable.
Snake wine is basically what it seems like: rice wine that has a snake in it. This conventional drink has been consumed in China for centuries, and can still be found there, just as in specific territories of India and Southeast Asia. It was once served as medication, with the snake venom thought to have positive effects on the drinker. Try not to stress, however: the venom may not be restorative, yet it's neutrolized by the alcohol and holds no risk.
Despite this, numerous individuals would be put off by drinking wine with a dead snake in it. On the off chance that you are not one of those individuals, probably the best spot to discover snake wine is the unbelievable Huaxi road night market in Taipei, Taiwan.
If you think you've gotten the hang of this by now then check this out. Seagull wine isn't just a wine with a dead seagull in it, similar to its snake-based cousin. Seagull wine, which is made by the Inuit individuals of the far North, is the aftereffect of putting a dead seagull in water and leaving the entire thing to gradually ferment in the sun.
As indicated by one traveler who attempted the drink before being told how it's made, it "wasn't awful." That is most likely the best acclaim that seagull wine will get from anybody south of the Arctic circle.
