List fails without Cambodian Muscle Wine.

Horrid stuff.
 
2012-11-01 01:06:07 PM  
fails without cashew feni (sp?) - this was a liquor from India that had small pebbles glued on the bottle. It tasted like a melting piece of plastic. Truly horrible.

why the fark is moonshine on that list?

List fails without Coors Light. That is some weird freaky shiat.

I know it's a promo, but moonshine is "weird"? Hardly. It's just fermented grain liquor that isn't aged and intended to be drunk young. Every culture has some version of it. We just call it illegal since the manufacturers haven't paid the tax on what they produced.

/having said that, "Moonshiners" was a often funny. I guess I'm not rusty on hillbilly since I didn't need the subtitles.

Near as I can figure, it is the most basic form of distilled spirit. WEIRD!

Because TFA is actually an ad for the Moonshiners?

I've had bacon vodka but the list fails without snakeblood whiskey. Then again I suppose its a blend so it might not meet the criteria.

I used to drink habu sake every now and then in Okinawa.

Didn't realize how they got the snake in the bottle:

There are two methods of inserting the snake into the alcohol. The maker may choose to simply submerge the snake in the alcohol and seal the bottle, thus drowning the snake. Alternatively, the snake may be put on ice until it passes out, at which point it is then gutted, bled and sewed up. When the viper is thawed and awakens, it will quickly die in an aggressive striking manner, which are what most producers look for. The manufacturer will then put the habu in an ethanol bath for a month to preserve it.[5] To continue the process, the habu is put in a 59% alcohol mix for 40 days and finally put in a 35% awamori mix to prepare for consumption. Removing the intestines of the snake, as in the second method, is thought to decrease the drink's particularly unpleasant smell

/the shiat you do when you're 20
 
2012-11-01 01:13:15 PM  
That was just normal alcohol with weird things floating in it, alternating with normal alcohol combined with somewhat unusual for alcohol but otherwise normal ingredients. Even in the "weird things floating in it" category it fails without the Sour Toe Cocktail.

Truly weird would be alcohol mixed with DDT or alcohol distilled from fermented poop or something. Hell, absinthe (the real kind) is weirder than any of these concoctions.
 
2012-11-01 01:16:29 PM  
List fails because it includes too many novelty items.

What about such old standbys as Cynar an Italian artichoke flavored bitter liquor.

sorry, but several jars with snakes in them called "snake wine" kinda caught my attention before those silly words did...but as mentioned before, it's just the simplest form of distilling liquor there is...almost like saying oil is a weird source of energy
 
2012-11-01 01:18:39 PM  
SO apparently absinthe isn't weird by this website's standards.
 
2012-11-01 01:19:11 PM  
I've had both Pulque and moonshine, and I can't recommend either. Pulque tastes like thick, rancid Zima and moonshine just burns your taste-buds away. Seriously people, with the vast variety of high quality microbrewers in this nation, do we really need to waste our time and money on crap?
 
2012-11-01 01:20:58 PM  
What a crap list. I have a bottle of this in my cupboard for adulterating gin:

www.altacucinasociety.com

It tastes like Genghis Khan's cough syrup neat, but works very well in small (1/2 tsp.) amounts in certain cocktails.

Also, where's that Yukon drink that features a human big toe?

Many moons ago, buddy brought back his 5 bottles of rum from Jamaica (where he grew up). He bought this particular kind of rum because he remembers getting it as a kit, 'cause it was cheaper than gas to run his outboard and scooter motors off of...

That is the jagermeister of San Francisco. People do shots of it here like jager is done everywhere else. Both are awful.

List is incomplete without whatever that crap Bourdain drank somewhere, where the women chew on some plant, then spit it into a bucket where it ferments.

Gross.
 
2012-11-01 01:39:04 PM  
List fails without Salamander Brandy, but whatever the fark is the effect from that it's certainly not alcohol. I got all excited to drink it after a year of sourcing a bottle and ended up trying to rub myself off on a doorknob that seemed entirely too sexy at the time. I was fortunate enough to have my girlfriend at the time show up and had a lovely afternoon, I got rid of the bottle sans four shots and buried the poor critter that had been drowned in it. Apparently spontaneous development of new sexual fetishes is pretty common. All I know is that I wanted to fark everything within twenty feet of me and it eliminated any kind of refractory period, I was a rock until it wore off. I imagine it'd be worse for most people, I don't have a very strong sex drive to begin with which was why I decided to have a few shots alone initially.

Those aren't even weird, they just have animal additives. As "weird" as moon-shine is I came from a family of runners, it's still easier to go to the liquor store and buy a mason jar labeled "White Lightning" than it is to get out to Kentucky and hit up some of my family members. You want to get into weird alcohol, start finding stuff that uses psychoactive additives. I made a mash from sinicuichi(Hemia salifolicia) and distilled it to fortify a raspberry wine. That was a farking weird alcohol, I wasn't expecting the actives in the sinicuichi to hit so suddenly, but it was kind of cool to have a wine around that made the walls burst into patterns and was almost impossible to get angry on. Or the liquor we added brugmansia essential oil too(bad idea, don't do that, it took almost a year to sort out that mess). For most of human history, "strong beer" meant "other crap than alcohol in it." It's a good time playing with it, I've made bottles of Mescal with high doses of mescaline in them, tried fermenting anything I can get my hands on, and like to go for medieval recipes that include psychoactive plants.

But hell, it's a sponsored link. Anything that puts what is essentially young whiskey at the top of a list has an agenda.

/seriously, don't touch Salamander brandy, cobra whiskey is alright though. 'specially since the ethanol preserves the snake enough you can skin it when you're done. The tanning process is a bit different though...
//if you have a wife and unresolved fetishes on the other hand it might be helpful.
///Probably not though, with two people on it it's likely you'll have an amazing experience farking the couch while your wife is screaming out the name she just gave the showerhead. Or the sink. Or the doorknob. Or your remote. Or your favorite pen. Or something not remotely phallically shaped she's having orgasms rubbing up on. It's all the scare stories told to soccer moms about E rolled into one.
////It's pretty goddamn awesome if you have an open minded woman around through, my ex had entirely too much fun with me that afternoon.

Read "Chasing the White Dog" - the author goes into some detail about the modern moonshine business including the retail side (i.e. shot houses or nip joints): Places where a (very) poor person can get drunk for only a few dollars on horrible sugarjack. People that can't afford to go to a bar and pay $10 for a drink or $5 for a beer.

/made with just white sugar instead of grain since it's cheaper and easier to obtain.

I've had bacon vodak before and it is goddamn nasty. Seriously people, eat your bacon and drink your vodak. Hell, use a crisp piece of bacon as a swizzle stick in your vodak if you want, but do not drink bacon vodak.

I've had this in a bloody mary just for shiats and giggles, and it wasn't bad. That's literally the only application I can think of for it, though, and like you said, a crispy bacon swizzle stick is a better idea for that anyway.

There is also salmon vodka, which is GREAT in a bloody mary, and much more efficient that sticking a whole smoked fish in there.

There was one drink I had in the Dominican Republic that was pretty wierd, It was rum infused with grass and charcoal or something. I like peaty scotch, but this was the smokiest, strongest rum I have ever had. Pretty disgusting actually. Anyone know the name of it?
 
2012-11-01 04:19:04 PM  
Worst list ever.
What is considered weird is entirely SUBJECTIVE.

If you've grown up around Pulque or any of the others, then they won't seem at all weird to you,
but you may look at the PBR in the hand of some hipster and (rightly) think:
www.thenextbarstool.com
"WTF is that weird thing!?!? And why is it drinking a disgusting PBR?"
 
2012-11-01 04:39:02 PM  
List needs...

I had a bottle once. The stuff is distilled and condensed onto the hanging dead body of a chicken. The booze really tastes vaguely of chicken. And this is a good thing.
