Unusual vodka with scorpion can be purchased in one of the British online store's strange products. The producers assure it is not only safe for health, but even useful. It removes toxins from the body, normalizes blood pressure and even increases the potency. Scorpions are not caught in the wild, but specially cultivated on one of China’s farms. Before being bottled, the scorpions undergo a special treatment that removes the poison.

Mescal with a caterpillarIn 1940, the Mexican alcoholic beverage manufacturer Del Magve began adding a caterpillar of the guzano butterfly to the mescal bottle. This was purely to confirm the high quality of the product - insects do not decompose in good alcohol. Well then, there were legends that such a drink is good for men. Guzano caterpillar comes in two varieties - white and red. Red is much rarer, and therefore, and mescal, in which it is added, is more expensive. But it is difficult to determine the color of the caterpillar in the bottle; the alcoholized insect becomes colorless.

Wine with miceIn Korea and China, wine with mice is very popular. It is recommended to take it for cold and sick liver. And the mice should not be over two or three days old until they have had time to grow a hairy coat. The poor mice are infused with rice wine, then the bottle is put away in a dark dry place and kept for at least a year.

Salmon-Flavored VodkaThe Alaska Distillery, located, as the name implies, in Alaska, established the production of smoked salmon-flavored vodka several years ago. The vodka is red in color and has a distinct fishy taste and smell. Alaskans themselves drink it with gusto, saying that salmon is an integral part of their diet. Therefore, there is no need to buy vodka and fish, all in one bottle.

The Strongest BeerThe Scottish brewing company Brewmeister makes the strongest beer in the world. The strength of this drink is 65 degrees. It consists of spring water, wheat, malt, and oat flakes. The beer is frozen during brewing; the alcohol does not freeze, and the excess ice is simply removed.

The Inuit (Eskimos living in northwestern Canada) came up with an original recipe for free wine: a dead seagull is taken and poured with water. This eerie mixture is put in a warm place for several days. Then it is filtered and boiled a few times. That’s it, the wine is ready to drink. The travelers who have been to the Inuit and have taken the risk of trying this drink assure us that the taste is comparable to that of liquid from a carburetor.

Milk BeerSince 2006, the brewers on the Japanese island of Hokkaido have been producing milk beer. The traditional frugality of the Japanese is telling, so milk is not wasted. The Abashiri Beer Company began adding it to their products. The new beer was called Bilk (beer + milk), which means beer + milk. But in English-speaking countries am wary of it, because Bilk is translated from English as “cheating”.

It is time to stop collecting recipes for strange alcoholic beverages from around the world. Let’s talk better about the Russian drink with the name “lampopo”. It is believed to be a joking anagram of the word “half. The drink “lampopo” is mentioned by many Russian writers of the nineteenth century, while no one names the exact recipe. Composition of “lampopo” could include kvass, beer, wine, champagne, as well as - lemon, sugar and breadcrumbs. Not for nothing, the drink got such a name. They poured into one bowl all that was at hand in equal proportions. “Lampopo” is even mentioned in the Dahl dictionary, according to which it is a drink of cold beer with lemon and rye breadcrumbs (croutons).
