@farmerman,
When I was in language school, out Romanian instructor was going thru an introduction to various traditional foods and drinks. After a numbing discussion on how many ways you can use eggplant in various dishes she told us about ţuică the traditional plum brandy that Eastern Europeans love. I thought she meant a flavored brandy, and she told me no, no, no you've never had ţuică?? So she promised to bring in some the next day. Lunch break the next day she rolled out these little tiny ham sandwiches on hard bread, and popped open the Tukoffs horseradish jar that contained the ţuică.......it was daytime but when that top came off the little bottle and she poured it into little metal cups the size of shot glasses.. vapor rose up from the liquid.

That stuff was as clear as water and I seem to remember she said her husband distilled it in their backyard. She told us (it was only me and this recently graduated French Major in the class) to take a sip then take a bite of the sandwich. I did take a sip but I think it was immediately absorbed thru my mouth tissue...I don't remember a taste, just an immediate realization that if I tried consume what seemed like 280 proof moonshine I would not be able to drive home. Now I have sampled some of the ancient Percy Flowers brew that my Father-in-law acquired and stored in the garage (because my mother-in-law would not allow alcohol in the house)..it went down hard, but at least I could drink it. Didn't much like that stuff either but it didn't scare me like ţuică....(pronounced Swee Kah)

This is a definition I found by a google search:

Romanian "moonshine"—often concocted in makeshift, charcoal-stoked backyard distilleries—is in fact the country's national drink. It's called ţuică, a clear and gut-warming potent spirit distilled from plums, one of the country's most bountiful crops.

I will never try it again.

You did it in the wrong order. First you down a bottle of I.C., then you consume the Harvey Wallbanger.

(note of caution: do not try this with I.C. Light)

Lapsang souchong tea?

Tried kombucha. That's pretty gross to drink fizzy apple vinegar.

@glitterbag,
It sounds a bit like slivovitz, but that’s quite nice. I had it in Prague.

I don’t like Lapsang either, for me it tastes like kippers.

I just remember being in college (now in college I was far from being a connoisseur but I did have some standards) - and this guy friend that was a little younger than us just under the legal drinking age came over to our on campus apartment.

He had already had a few. He went onto say how he had struck a great deal at the packie (for package store) (that is what we call them in Mass) - any way he said there was a special on Duke beer - I do not remember the sale amount but it equated to something like a quarter or something a can. He went on to say that he had never heard of Duke beer before but it had a picture of John Wayne and a horse on the can. I explained that I did not think it wise to put something into your body that cost less water. He was very proud of this purchase but I do not think he felt well the next morning.

At 17 years of age 3/4 of a fifth of Cuban rum. The aftereffects were devastating.

@Linkat,
Jägermeister happens to be vomit flavored cough syrup. Just stating the facts.

@tsarstepan,
Did you keep the Jäger in the freezer? I don't know what kind of vomit you are acquainted with, but I kind of like the Jäger stuff...every once in a while.

@glitterbag,
I can’t remember the name of it but there was another popular liquor among the under age crowd that also tasted like liquor. I remember going to a concert after consuming it and one of my friends getting sick at the concert me rubbing her back while all still watching and dancing ... she was trouper got up and danced after that.

It would probably be the "prison punch" I cooked up when I was in Vietnam. A couple of olive drab #10 cans of "Fruit Cocktail", some oranges, sugar, and water, left in a sandbag bunker for a week or two; it was quite putrid. Maybe not quite as bad as the bottles of Robitussin DM we chugged down in search of an artificial temporary paradise, but those weren't actually intended to be used as a beverage.

I think I can get a bottle of slivovitz over here.......it has to taste better than the high test moon shine I sampled back in the 80's. Our instructor was such a lovely woman, lots of curly blond hair and big blue eyes. She seemed happy all the time. She left Romania sometime in the mid 70's back when it was still under Ceausescu's regime. She was unable to take anything with her when she left, her family's home and any money had to be forfeited to the Government. Practically everything she or her family owned was designated property of the State and forbidden to leave the country,

Both of our instructors had to leave practically everything behind in order to be allowed to leave. I remember thinking its had to be nightmare living in Romania, couldn't imagine how corrupt it had become.........but then in 2016, the Electoral College placed Donald Trumps fat ass in the White House...

@farmerman,
I like drambuie, at one time my favorite cocktail was a Rusty Nail. I think I liked the name more than the drink......it's also good in strong coffee when your nursing a cold. The drambuie, not a rusty nail.

Gold Schlage is the worst tasting to me (Swiss cinnamon schnapps).
Retsina (Greek resonated wine) is pretty vile too. Tossup as to which one is worse.

@Ragman,
Goldschlager is what is the proper spelling.
Vile is what it’s smelling.

I am there with you! I was 16 and I don't think it was Cuban, but RUM it was and I have never touched it afterwards. Alone the thought of rum makes me gag....
