Drinksemba is almost upon us and that means the alcohol will be flowing nonstop! For many people around the world, alcohol comes with a healthy dose of the strange and unusual. If you’re planning to travel, here are some of the weirdest alcoholic drinks you can try out all over the world.
How do you feel about snakes? Well, that’s what you’ll be drinking if you go for these weirdest alcoholic drinks. Snake wine is made by infusing corpses of whole venomous snakes in rice wine or grain alcohol. The belief is that as the snake’s essence and venom dissolves into the wine, it promotes vitality and heals certain illnesses.
It’s like regular gin, but with a very crappy start! According to the distillers, the idea of infusing the gin with elephant dung came from realizing that elephants eat a lot of fruits and plants and yet digest only a third of it. The dung is collected, dried out and cleaned until the undigested fruits and plants remain. This is what’s added to the gin to give it some flavor, so enjoy!
