While in Africa, a group of us ate at a local restaurant called The Boma. Fabulous food aside, we were all treated to a small gulp of their traditional beer.
Oh. My. Gosh.
It was awful tasting! I don't even know what to compare it to - it was sort of sour, salty, and I seem to remember it being a bit gritty, too. Certainly not the kind of beer I'm used to swilling! Nevertheless, it was another one of those 'when in Africa' moments.
So when I came across this slideshow this morning, The Boma immediately sprung to mind. While they didn't make the cut, see what other odd cocktails did!
Would you try Vietnamese snake wine?
Have you ever - or would you ever - try any of those cocktails?
I'd definitely give both Calimocho and Screech a try - they don't seem too awful. And maybe I would give the snake wine a try...mostly just for the bragging rights that are sure to come with it! :)
