Salute: The Strangest Liquors in the World

Handing out homemade beer at a liquor store, Tom and Athena Seefurth, chefs based in Illinois, surprised several people with the smell of their beers-from garlic to tomatoes. They are also the inventors of “pizza beer.” They thought of creating beer that will match their favorite dishes perfectly, and so came up with pizza beer.

Like these two, people all over the world have created different kinds of liquors, which have become worldwide traditions. Wines have been used during the ancient times as medicine, and though people now no longer use them as such, the recipes have survived, and people continue to enjoy them. When in a foreign country, knocking down that glass of strange liquor is also a great way for you to get to know the culture of the people.

Today, experimentation with liquor is done by enterprising people in order to compete with and add flavor to the bottles and bottles of liquor we have become used to. This is a list of some of the strangest liquors you can find in the world.

Pizza Beer in Illinois, USA

Salute: The Strangest Liquors in the World

Pizza being their favorite dish, Tom Seefurth and Athena Seefurth created pizza beer in 2006. Chopping pounds and pounds of wheat crust, tomato, oregano, garlic and basil for their beer, they have sold bottles to people who have made this their favorite. Dont think that there are actual chewable ingredients inside your drink, though, as the ingredients are well filtered, leaving just the essence of pizza. You can find this at Sams Wine and Spirits, or at Top Shelf Wine and Spirits. It is available from over 200 retailers and restaurants across Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania.

Wine from Snake Bile in Vietnam

Salute: The Strangest Liquors in the World

Feeling gutsy? Try this fascinating drink served in specialty restaurants around Vietnam. The preparation itself is swoon-worthy, as a person to slice open a living cobra to get its gall bladder, and pours the bile to the rice wine. Locals swear by its health benefits, and that it makes men virile. Huang Rung Restaurant in Ho Chi Minh serves this, and so do others that specialize in exotic meats.

Chicha in Peru

Salute: The Strangest Liquors in the World

Chicha or corn beer was drunk during Incan ritual festivals and sacrifices. Today, though no longer used in rituals, Chicha still follows the traditional ways of preparation: women from villages in the Andean region chew the maize and then spit the pulp in earthenware jars filled with warm water, where it is left and stored to ferment. The result is a milky, yellowish liquid served in gourds that are hollowed out. Variations of this drink include pineapples, yucca, and plantains. You can find this drink in chicherias along Cuzco and Lima, mostly in central markets and rural Andean villages. To spot a freshly-made chicha for sale, a red or white flag hung above the doorway of a house will be your signal.

Lizard Wine in China

Top 12 Weirdest Traffic Laws Across the Globe

The basic of traffic laws is to stop when you need to stop, and remember speed limits if you are stepping on it. They sound pretty simple until you learn of the strangest rules that are strictly followed on the road.

Doing the Hook Turn in Australia

Being on the wrong side of the road is already scary when you are driving in Australia but wait until you need to do a hook turn in Melbourne. That will be more difficult that usual for us travelers but it is pretty simple for the locals.
Normally, you will be on the right late if you want to make a right turn but if you have to do a hook turn, you have to go to the outer left lane then on green you have to make a hard right to go where you intend to go. The hook turn was designed so the traffic on the central business district of Melbourne will not block the lines of the tram.

There are quite a number of intersections in the CBD where hook turn is strictly required. Be ready for a steep penalty of $75 if you are on the wrong portion of the road.

 

Environmental stickers in Germany

As 2010 kicked off, Germany implemented a strict rule that every car entering Cologne, Munich, Berlin, and about a few dozen more cities in the country. The stickers are priced between $7.50 and $30.

If you rented a car from France or Belgium and you are heading to Germany, make sure that you get the environmental sticker or you will be pulled over by the traffic warden. Failing to do so might cost you $60.
