1.) BABY MICE WINE :
Baby mice wine is a traditional Chinese health drink, which is brewed by drowning alive baby mice, maximum three days old, in rice moonshine and letting them to ferment in the bottle for about a year. According to local Chinese belief, mouse wine is a cure to just about any illness imaginable, including asthma and liver problems among others.Very popular in China and Korea, baby mouse wine is a considered a cure for anything from the common cold to liver problems. Think of it as cheap remedy and rarely seen in practice except in Korea.
2.) SCORPION VODKA
There seems to be no end of people pickling animals in alcohol and serving them as refreshing beverages, but whilst you’d expect scorpion vodka to come from Thailand or China, this brand is in fact produced and bottled in England, where a single ’farm raised’ scorpion is added to every bottle.
The website claims it’s ‘the ultimate shot’ and that by serving it, you will ‘impress your friends and everyone around you’. It also advises you serve it with a ‘scorpion garnish’. However, we suspect if you returned from the bar with a scorpion in place of a lemon slice, your date might make a sharp exit.
3.) SNAKE WINE
Produced by infusing a whole snake in rice wine or grain alcohol, snakes have long been considered good for vitality and health in South East Asia, and proponents say a shot or two can cure all ailments from baldness to impotence. Snake Village, an area of bars and restaurants in Hanoi, offers customers the chance to try freshly made snake beverages prepared right in front of them. A ‘beating heart’ shot apparently slips down smoothly, and afterwards you can fill up on snake steak and crispy snake skin too.
4.) LIZARD WINE
It might sound repulsing, but lizard wine is a very popular drink in China. It is prepared by adding ginseng and Geko lizards into a clay vat, full of fermenting rice wine. After 12 months, the mixture is strained and green liquor is obtained.Lizard wine tastes a lot like brandy and is said to improve eye-sight and ward of evil spirits.
5.) SEAGULL WINE
Limited somewhat by their chilled environment, the Inuit didn’t have much to work with when they wanted to create a fine vintage. So the recipe for this wine is simple; stuff a dead seagull into a bottle of water then leave in the sun to ferment for a while. We can’t imagine this wine winning any awards, but it reportedly does get you drunk. As it’s yet to reach the shelves of your local off licence, you’ll need to head towards the North Pole to try it.
6.) SQUIRREL BEER
You’d expect a lot from a bottle of beer costing $765. What you get is 55 percent alcohol and served in a squirrel.
According to Scottish firm BrewDog, “The End of History” is the “strongest, most expensive and most shocking beer in the world.”
Just 12 bottles were made and the company has already sold out. They will be shipped out to buyers in the United States, Canada, Italy, Denmark, Scotland and England next week.
The dead animals which were used to create the beers’ unusual appearance were four squirrels, seven weasels and a hare. All were roadkill, James Watt, co-founder of BrewDog, told msnbc.com.
The name of the blond Belgian ale is taken from the title of a book by philosopher Francis Fukuyama, “The End of History and the Last Man” which the company said had been chosen to imply “this is to beer what democracy is to history.”
7.) BACON VODKA
We love making our own flavored spirits at home, but properly capturing bacon is a bit of a challenge. Now, thanks to Seattle’s Black Rock Spirits, we have Bakon Vodka! This is an unusual premium spirit with a familiar flavor; Bakon is the only vodka on the market that captures the meaty, peppery flavor of just-cooked bacon while maintaining a crisp, clean profile. Perfect for making a rich Bloody Mary, it also begs for experimentation with creative mixing.
