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