Wine from the penis of a deer.

Chinese athletes have long begun to resort to eating exotic parts of animals for the sake of improving their results. In the 1990s, the coach of Chinese short trackers, Ma Yunren unexpectedly from unknown runners raised several world record holders. They said that for this he gave them a cocktail of turtle blood and mushrooms. The Anti-Doping Agency suspected that the illegal use of testosterone was being carried out, but nothing could be proved. But the most strange thing in sports medicine was the use of wine from the penis of a deer. Such a strange drink from a soaked in alcohol sexual organ is considered an indispensable tool that helps to recover from injuries. However, at the Olympic Games in Beijing in 2008, an unpleasant drink for the athletes was still banned. However, the ban appeared not because of love of animals. The fact is that many traditional Chinese remedies, including those from animal dildos, in the opinion of numerous sports federations contain ephedrine. And his appearance in the body of an athlete promises him a lengthy disqualification. There is a wine based on the penis of a deer and another dignity. It is believed that such a strange drink enhances man’s sexual energy. This is allegedly due to the influx of blood to the proper organ and organization of the flow of “chi”, the main life force in traditional Chinese medicine. There is a particularly powerful option, which is known as the wine of three members. In addition to the penis of the deer, the genital organs of dogs and seals are also used to make this drink. A member of the team of “National Geography” told that this drink tastes more creamy than the wine that is made from mice. This brew is also popular in Asia, it is considered a remedy for all diseases, ranging from liver disease and ending with asthma.

Rainbow beer.

The Japanese brewery “Abasiri” is famous for its line of brightly colored beers. There is a blue drink here Ryuhyo, red Hamanasu, green Shiritoko and purple Jyaga. The concept of the appearance of such a line is based on four seasons in Hokkaido, the northern island of Japan. That’s where the headquarters of the company is located. Hokkaido is located in the Sea of ​​Okhotsk, between Japan and Russia. The winter version is Ryuhyo, whose name translates as drifting ice. This beer is brewed with the help of water, obtained from icebergs, which float past the northern beaches of Hokkaido. The bright blue shade of this beer is obtained thanks to an extract of algae. They also give the green color to the Shiritoko variety, symbolizing the spring. Ruby tint of beer bears the name of “pear shoreline”. It is obtained from field flowers that grow in summer along the sea coast. Autumn the same “harvest” got its purple color due to the use of potatoes in the process.

Soda with kimchi.

Not only is Asian cuisine itself quite unusual, its specificity has even fallen into carbonated drinks. Ramune produces its colorful beverages with tastes of wasabi, kimchi, curry and teriyaki. For lovers of simpler options, other, but no less unusual, flavors are offered: chewing gum, blueberry, banana, white champagne. In total, the manufacturer offers 18 different original flavors.The very word “Ramune” is a Japanese adaptation to all the usual lemonade. But even more remarkable than unusual flavors is a glass bottle of soda “Cork Cod” with a plastic ring instead of a lid. Its name was received from its inventor. Englishman Hiram Codd lived in the XIX century and developed a unique method of bottling carbonated lemonade. A ball is inserted into the neck of the bottle, which is held in place by the gas pressure from the inside. To open such a bottle it is necessary to knock out the central plastic cover with your finger and use it as a piston to squeeze the ball into the bottle. The method is rather original, but at one time it was almost revolutionary. Many inexperienced customers suffer with such soda, trying to open it almost with a hammer, a knife or trying to melt a plastic ring.

Peruvian juice from a frog.

Lake Titicaca is the highest navigable lake in the world. At the same time it is the home for Telmatobius coleus, the main ingredient of the local beverage “Rana and poppy”. This juice is made from a frog and is considered a Peruvian Viagra. An unusual drink can be purchased in local markets. Prepare it very simply and not particularly humane – the living frog is removed from the aquarium, beat it until it dies or loses consciousness. Then on the abdomen, the creatures make a couple of cuts, taking off the skin. The frog is placed in a blender and ground together with a hot broth of beans, honey, aloe juice and poppies. The latter is a root, growing in the Andes. It is believed that poppies increases stamina and sexual desire. The result is a starchy “juice”, more like a milkshake. This liquid literally burns the throat. True, the demand for “Peruvian Viagra” led to the danger of destroying the entire species of frogs. But this threatens the entire ecosystem of a unique high-mountainous lake. To ensure the survival of frogs, the US Agency for Fishing and Hunting provided even a grant in 2010 for 25 thousand dollars. This money should go to a social company that must change local habits.

Smoking liquid.

This unusual drink did not last long, but managed to be remembered. “Smoking liquid” was produced by the Dutch manufacturer “United Drinks and Beauty Corporation”. As the name implies, the company produced drinks that were designed to provide a person with beauty. “Smoking liquid” according to the manufacturer’s statement was to remove the acute craving for nicotine, increasing it from one to four hours. In the Netherlands, this drink even became popular, and in 2008 it appeared on sale in the UK. The manufacturer believed that this liquid would have to be stopped because of the ban on smoking in public places that has entered the country. The general director of the manufacturer, Martin Hartman, said that his product does not contain nicotine. And the desired effect is achieved due to a mixture of South African plant roots, which have a slight tonic effect, followed by sedation and relaxation. Despite this, as well as a modest 21 calories in a 275-ml jar, “Smoking Liquid” was criticized, largely because the design of the bank was too much like a pack of Marlboro cigarettes. Today the manufacturer went bankrupt, even the site does not work.

Tea from pandas.

One Chinese entrepreneur hopes that pandas will do for tea about the same thing that civets do for coffee. Professor of Calligraphy An Yansi from the University of Sichuan patented a special method of preparing green tea, which previously goes to feed pandas. Sichuan is a famous panda house of the species Ya’an Bifengxia, which contains about 80 animals in captivity. And this drink is sold under the name “Ecological tea from pandas”. There are three varieties, and the release is limited to twenty-one 50-gram sachets. The product of the highest class costs 72 thousand dollars per kilogram, which is 10 times more expensive than the rare, a batch of 1960 boxes, Wu Yi oolong tea from Hong Kong.

The remaining 70 percent of the nutrients come from feces. Thanks to this unusual processing, tea from pandas becomes very tasty and nutritious.

Cow water.

About four years ago, a leading Hindu cultural group developed a new drink, “Cow Water”. It was presented as a healthy alternative to popular non-alcoholic beverages. Hindus have long worshiped cows, which are very helpful to people with their vital dairy products. But the Ayurvedic tradition says that bovine urine with excrement can be used to treat various diseases, from liver problems to diabetes and cancer. Representatives of the Department of the protection of cows have declared the radical nationalist organization “Rashtriya svayamsvak sangh” have already stated that a new non-alcoholic drink should get its chance in the market. Hindus need the opportunity to enjoy the healing properties of cow’s urine, it is guaranteed that the drink will not look and smell like this waste of life. This drink did not reach the American market, but in Italy it can be found under the name “Acqua Di Vacca”.

Drink from a bird’s nest.

Instead of building a nest from branches, some species of salangans (genus Swifts) use for this purpose their long strands of sticky saliva. They freeze, forming a woven bowl, according to the strength comparable to cement. In China, these nests are valued as a delicacy. It is believed that eating it is good for health, such food makes the liver stronger, increases immunity and improves the skin. After washing, which removes droppings from their nests, the product resembles a sponge created from thin white strips. Usually each such bird creation is sold by a gourmet at a price of $ 500, but it weighs no more than a pound. Even less often on sale there are bloody nests. They are so called because of the reddish hue, which is obtained because of the blood contained in the saliva of the birds. These jacks are already selling for 1300 dollars apiece. And in order for the advantages of such a delicacy to be available to ordinary consumers, some companies sell this product in the form of a drink. It has a mineral flavor and a sweet, floral fragrance. However, the texture of the drink is jelly-like and rough, with tiny nest particles floating in the liquid. Global pollution and human intervention affect those rocks where Swifts-Salangans live. As a result, it is becoming increasingly difficult to extract nests – prices are rising.Some people collect even just built nests or even with eggs. It’s amazing that people are ready for the health of their skin to drink liquid as a matter of fact from mucus and vomiting of rare birds under threat of destruction.

Placenta 10000 and Placenta Pro.

Women are so concerned about their aging that they are the best and most interested consumer of products based on the placenta. This substance comes out of the body of a woman after the birth of a child. The placenta supplies oxygen and nutrients to the growing body through the umbilical cord. It contains a high content of iron, as well as vitamin B-12 and hormones. It is believed that its use generates energy, and for a young mother it allows you to increase milk production, reduce postpartum depression and bleeding, and, moreover, just look better. But the benefits of the placenta are also interested in those who are not going to give birth. In the market there was a product “Placenta 10000”, looking in the form of jelly with a taste of peach. It was prepared from a placental extract of pigs. In fact, there is no need to worry about this replacement of a person with an animal, because the benefits of using the placenta have not been scientifically proven at all. Nevertheless, many manufacturers continue to sell funds based on the placenta, as a rejuvenating ingredient. There are many products on the market based on such a component – from beverages to even chips. And for those who do not think the pork placenta is a strong enough tool, there is always a product called “Placenta Pro”, created from an extract of the corresponding tissues of horses.

An unusual cocktail was presented at one of the contests, whose composition included cheddar cheese, tomatoes, some beef, pickles and even a fraction of rum. The creator of the drink, Trevor Burris, believes that his offspring will have to taste real fans of meat. But the best thing is not just to drink it at dinner, but to eat some other meat meal. So you can eat steak and eat it with a cheeseburger, only in a liquid form.
