In Quechua, the name of this drink is translated as “liana of spirits” or “liana of the dead”. Its glory is that it causes hallucinations. This drink is made by the native inhabitants of the Amazon from a melon vine, which is called the vine of spirits. Indians believe that with the help of ayahuasca, the worlds of the dead and the living can be invisibly linked for a short time. And there is nothing to be surprised at here – the drink has a powerful psychoactive effect, which along with beliefs in the existence of the afterlife and spirits will direct the hallucinations in the right direction. As a result, people can actually see their deceased ancestors. Prepare this charming in the literal and figurative sense of the word drink so. First 12 hours of cooking vine pruning and a bunch of leaves of other plants, acting as spices. They say that ayahuasca has an interesting effect on the body – a momentary purification from the parasites that live inside.
Under this name is sold Swiss strong (alcohol here is 53.5%) schnapps with cinnamon. Its uniqueness lies in the fact that the composition of the drink includes the finest, but still visible flakes of real gold. A liter of goldstone contains about 15 mg of gold. Especially for this snaps are produced sieves with tiny holes that can hold the largest gold flakes. But most snobs who allow themselves a bottle of a drink with gold for $ 300 prefer not to filter it. But small particles of metal can easily damage the gastric mucosa. There were even cases when gold remained in the stomach for several months. As a result, the gourmet began to experience nausea, burning and discomfort. Even the release of gold from the body can become a problem – a precious metal can get stuck in the rectum, damage it and cause suppuration.

Even in Korea itself, this drink is not very popular, which is not surprising, given the composition. This is a local traditional wine, which is created from the feces of man and medicinal herbs. All this wanders 3-4 months in alcohol. Sly journalists decided to test an unusual drink on three Chinese women who do not know anything about its composition. Naive girls praised the taste of Tsongul. They said that the drink is very tasty, easy to drink and leaves a pleasant aftertaste in your mouth. The participants of the experiment stated that this wine can become a real discovery for those girls who adore sweet alcoholic drinks. But when the participants learned what exactly Tsongsul consists of, they changed their mind dramatically. Chinese said that the drink from Korean feces and taste like shit.
This African swill is considered the most dangerous beer in the world. For the production of Fijjtu, foul water is used, in which parasites are swarming.

Under this awesome name, the world’s strongest beer is produced. It is produced by the Scottish brewing company Brewmeister. The name of the drink seems to promise that the beer will make a real Armageddon in the stomach. It’s hard to believe, but in a foam drink, the alcohol content is an incredible 65%. Hell’s swill was stronger than vodka or whiskey. And although the drink did not hit the Guinness Book of Records, as the world’s strongest beer, it’s only a matter of time. After all, the closest competitor, the drink “The End of History” is inferior to “Armageddon” in the fortress as much as 15%. One of the founders of the company Brewmeister Lewis Shand says that the composition of a strong product is still closer to the liquor, and not to beer.

It should be noted that a strong drink is very popular. After all, one of his bottles is enough for the whole company to quickly get drunk. That’s why the manufacturer warns that you should use this beer very carefully and in small doses. The brewer from Brewmeister John McKenzie said that to produce beer with such a high content of alcohol had to create a special method of fermentation, called the “ice”. Because of this, the beer turned out to be much thicker than traditionally. Here’s how this technique works. Beer is created using crystalline malt, oat flakes, wheat and pure Scottish spring water. It is frozen during the brewing process in order to increase the alcohol content. After all, unlike water, it can not freeze. As a result, excess water in the form of ice is removed, and the output is a strong drink with an alcohol content of 65%.
This drink can be safely called the most vile in its taste qualities. Under this name is known Scandinavian schnapps from wormwood, a fortress of 35%. They say that one sample of the drink will be enough. The taste of the mollort is described with exceptional epithets – “terrible abomination”, “real poison” and so on. But the impressions will surely remain for the rest of their lives. Even the smell of this drink is specific. There is a whole set of unpleasant odors.

This alcohol is one of the cheapest in the world. Prepare moonshine to Kenya, it is quite popular in African slums. It is believed that changa is very destructive for the body. Those unfortunates who have sat down on this drink, live already not for long. The literal translation of the drink means “kill me quickly”. This fully reflects the essence of the drink, because each of his pile will take several years of life. And this drink is obtained by distillation of such cereal crops as sorghum and corn. Although it sounds good, it is worth taking into account that local moonshiners know nothing about sanitation and quality standards. That is why in the final product there can be everything, everything – from sand to man’s feces. Also, the creators of changra, wanting to present their product profitably, form its taste and smell with the help of special secret ingredients. It can be jet fuel, liquid for embalming, battery acid.To get drunk with such a drink, only 300-400 grams is enough. Then the person simply loses consciousness. The next morning he wakes up with a severe hangover, accompanied by a severe headache and nausea. It is believed that eating changaa can discourage a person from memory. Remember that what happened during a drunken frenzy is simply impossible, although, maybe this is for the better? Miracle cough drink.
It turns out that in the XIX century heroin was considered an excellent cough remedy. From 1898 to 1910 it was possible to buy a drink with it, which was sold as a substitute for morphine, and as a child’s cough medicine. Today it’s scary to imagine, but at that time children were treated with heroin. Of course, it does not help with a cough, but the harm from it is enormous. Simply in those days, heroin was considered something of a harmless aspirin, which can save a boring disease.
Cocktail with a rotten toe.
Often they write about exotic alcoholic beverages, which are insisted on different animals – snakes rats, seagulls. These terrible drinks are popular in Asia, but in their horror and they are inferior to what is served in one Canadian bar. In the north-west of the country there is a town called Dawson, where a cocktail is served at the Sourtoe Cocktail Club. Its name is directly connected with a rotten finger, and it’s not an exaggeration – it really uses amputated fingers. There is a cocktail about 5 dollars, the composition can vary, but one ingredient remains unchanged – the human finger from the foot. According to the rules of this club, the drink was prepared initially – a finger dropped into the beer mug, champagne was poured in. The contents of the mug had to be drunk and touched with the lips of the finger. However, the rules have changed over time, now you can pour everything, anything, even non-alcoholic drinks. However, the finger must be present without fail. Only after passing the rite of consecration with the help of such a cocktail can you become a member of a local club and even get a certificate of it. The club was founded in 1973 by a certain captain Dick Sivens. According to the legend, the tradition of drinking with a finger in the glass appeared accidentally – one joker threw a frozen finger into his glass. Since then, some members of the club bring their fingers with them, while others use the fact that they rent out the institution. As a result, some limbs have been used many times. But is it possible to embarrass the bold and insane person, who in principle is ready to drink with a liquid floating in it with a particle of the body of a stranger?
