17 Extremely Weird Drinks You Would Think Twice About Tasting
Snake wine, Yogurt Pepsi, and Ranch Dressing are just a few of the weirdest drinks that actually exist in various places around the world. It won’t be easy to find them and when you do, you will think very carefully before consuming them since their description isn’t very enticing. However, they’re not dangerous to your health and many of them are actually considered to be beneficial!
Bright Side would like to introduce you to some of the craziest drink flavors that can be found around the world.
1. Snake wine
In Asia, it is quite popular for liquor stores to sell rice wine that contains snakes. The snakes get pickled while inside the wine and leave their unique flavor. There have been a few cases where people were attacked by the snakes that were still alive after opening the bottle.
2. Smoker’s Cough (Jagermeister + mayonnaise)
All you need to drink this unique shot is 30 grams (1 oz) of Jagermeister in a glass and a spoonful of mayonnaise. Enjoy!
3. Prairie Oyster
Prairie Oyster consists of one raw egg yolk, Worcestershire sauce, tomato juice, vinegar, hot sauce, salt, and ground black pepper. This drink has been referred to as a hangover cure and it has appeared as such in many films and TV shows.
4. Peanut Butter & Jelly Soda
Lester’s Fixins peanut butter and jelly soda isn’t your typical summer soda. According to this review, the drink tastes like nuts and has a slightly fruity taste. However, it doesn’t have a distinctive taste and doesn’t impress those who drink it.
5. Bilk (Beer + Milk)
Compared to the previous drinks, Bilk sounds quite normal, even if it combines 2 ingredients that are naturally completely different. This drink is being produced by a Japanese brewery called Abishiri, which sells it in beer bottles. Based on a few descriptions, Bilk has a fruity taste.
6. Mamma Mia Pizza Beer
Mamma Mia Pizza Beer might actually be interesting to try. It’s made of two things that everyone consumes during movie night and it all comes in a beer bottle! It was first created in 2006 by Tom and Athena Seefurth in their home brewery in Campton Township, Illinois and it continues to do well in the market.
7. Pickle Juice Soda
Grandpa Joe’s Candy Shop in Pennsylvania has been home to pickle juice soda since mid-2017, something that made quite a few people happy. The soda is made of pickles and real cane sugar, instead of corn syrup. Anyone interested can buy 2 bottles from Amazon for $35.99.
8. Yogurt-flavored Pepsi
Pepsi White is a product that exists exclusively in Japan and first appeared in October 2008. People who have tried it say that it is not all that disgusting and leaves a lemon and vanilla aftertaste. While being marketed as yogurt Pepsi, yogurt is nowhere mentioned on the list of ingredients.
9. Celery soda
Dr. Brown’s Cel-Ray has been around for more than a century, first appearing sometime in the 1860s. It has become very popular in New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore and South Florida and can be found in various Jewish delicatessens, proving to be a very popular yet unusual beverage. However, this drink is very hard to find in other places in the US.
10. Garlic & Onion Juice
A very popular drink in South Korea is garlic juice, which is made of black garlic. Black garlic increases the number of polyphenols and produces S-allyl-cysteine, a water-soluble sulfur-containing amino acid that isn’t found in fresh garlic. This means that although the drink may look and taste repulsive, it is actually very beneficial. Combining that with onion juice will definitely solve all your hair problems if you’ve got any.
11. Bird’s Nest Drink
Edible bird nests are very popular in the Chinese culture since they find them to be high in nutritional value and very tasteful. The nests are extremely expensive, being sold for $3,000 per lb. That’s why a bottle of a 240-ml bird’s nest drink costs $52. Apart from the drink, which is mainly exported around the world, most Chinese people consume bird nest’s soup, which can be either sweet or savory.
12. Avocado Honey Ale
Angel City is a Los Angeles brewery that decided to bring avocado into a bottle of ale. The ale is made of California grown avocados, avocado honey, cilantro, and lime juice. However, it is not a product that you can find all year round since it gets released every summer for the Avocado Festival in limited edition. Bushshack Brewery in Australia also produces an avocado-flavored beer for another avocado festival. Those who have tasted the beer say that you can’t really taste it, but the avocado gives the beer a natural bitterness and a creamy finish.
13. Curry Lemonade
Curry Ramune is a soft drink from Japan that mixes lemonade with curry powder. The label on the bottle says that ’’even Indian people will be surprised’.’ Luckily, Curry Ramune can be purchased on the Amazon website for just $212.
14. Ranch Dressing Soda
Lester Fixins is known for creating unusual soda flavors and the Ranch Dressing soda is one of them. According to one courageous taster, the soda smells like blue cheese and smelly feet. However, it tastes like sugar and coconut but the overall experience wasn’t something to repeat. If you’re still willing to try it, you can buy a 6-pack for $14.99.
15. Garlic Coca Cola & Pepsi Cappuccino
In 2017, garlic Coca-Cola was released in Japan and many people went crazy for it. The recipe is quite simple — just regular Coca-Cola mixed with some ground garlic. In the same crazy manner, Pepsi released a cappuccino flavor mainly in Russia, Romania, and other European countries. However, it has been discontinued and it would be impossible to find it anywhere.
16. Kumis (horse milk + alcohol)
Kumis is a traditional Asian drink that is made of a mare’s milk. Its taste is quite similar to Kefir, but a bit stronger, since mare’s milk leaves a stronger alcohol content when being fermented compared to that of a cow or a goat. To taste the original Kumis, you must drink it from the locals instead of buying it in a bottle since cow milk is usually used for industrial-scale production.
17. Cow Urine Drink
In 2011, the President of Cow Protection Department of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh of India said that a soft drink called ’’gau jal’’ would enter the market and it would contain cow urine, but it would not taste or smell like it. This is a product that aimed to substitute the various sodas that are harmful to the human health and even contain pesticides. A man said that since he started drinking cow urine, his blood sugar levels were kept under control, while others treat their stomach problems with it.
