World’s ghastliest alcoholic beverages. If there is one thing that is an absolute in the world of alcohol, it is this: You can take anything, mix a little sugar and yeast into it, and if it ferments there will be somebody to drink it.

You could even let a fish ferment — the Swedes will eat it and call it surstromming…
