Brew-ewwy !!!

Had a hard day at work come home to an ice cold beer  –  mmmm the good life . Or a lovely robust Cabernet swirling around in your glass .

Ever wondered how other cultures look at Liquor and its processing !?!? What , how  , when and who ?

Well in Cambodia they have one drink that is definitively creepy and crawly .

Tarantula Brandy !!!

It is an alcoholic beverage made from rice liquor and flavored with dead Tarantulas served in a tot glass , how very quaint .

Oh no wait that is no the strangest !!! I would take Spiders over Dead fermented mice any day .

In China a distilled rice spirit is filled with dead mice and fermented for one year . and do they remove the mice !?!? nope they stay in the bottle for added flavour .

In Vietnam and China  it is popular to flavour your wine with reptilian carcasses seen in Cobra wine , Scorpion and snake wine

In complete contrast on the other end of the world we flavour our wine with oranges and spices.

I think I shall stick to the vegetarian variety’s in my  liquor cabinet  such as wine from grapes  – fruit  , Frangelico from hazelnuts  –  nuts = Fibre and Protein , and beer made from Wheat hops and water = Carbohydrates and hydration  ,  Complete diet !!!



Snake and Scorpion Liquor


I hope I have given you something to ponder and peruse over .
