We humans love to intoxicate ourselves from time to time, especially over the weekend, and then come out of it with a colossal hangover to nurse all through Monday. However, these few borderline illegal and downright absurd drinks exist only to melt your brain in all the wrong ways.

1. Absinthe

Absinthe - Most Dangerous Drinks in the World

A drink made famous by pop-culture is known worldwide as being the brand diplomat of illegal drinks all around the world. Made out of wormwood and anise, it is considered to be a extremely alcoholic beverage. Apparently, it drove people crazy and caused epilepsy and tuberculosis, and hence was banned in the 19th century. Albeit, due to recent changes in the rules and system of food and beverages, there has been a revival of Absinthe culture and it is back in the market.

2. Mezcal

Mezcal Most Dangerous Dinks in the world

Mezcal is a distilled alcoholic beverage made of a form of agave plant from Mexico. What makes it special? As a marketing gimmick in the 1940′s, the producers started put a young insect in the bottle, a larval form of the moth Hypopta Agavis that lives on the agave plant. The trend caught on and to this very day Mezcal is sold with a visually disturbing worm inside it!

3. Scorpion Vodka

To everyone who considers vodka to be the ladies’ poison, think again. Vodka is a strong concoction, and the Russian’s love it. Albeit this time around they have in use it to the next level Scorpion Vodka has full-length scorpion preserved vodka in it. And is used as an aphrodisiac in south-east Asia and for therapeutic uses such as back and muscle pain. Oh, and the scorpion is edible, along with its stinger.

4. Three Lizard Liquor

Want to feel powerful and avoid evil spirits from messing with you? Just have a sip of this umber-awesome drink, liquor stuffed with three lizards! The Three Lizard Liquor originated in China and Vietnam. It is believed that the lizards are a source of power and are capable of repel evil spirits and are hence consumed by the masses.

5. Snake Wine

Snake Wine - Most Dangerous Drinks In the world

Yet another drink originating from Vietnam, this one’s a rice wine with a snake in it, a very poisonous snake to be precise. The characteristic taste doesn’t come from the snake’s meat, but the poison itself. Thankfully, the ethanol kills the poisonous effect of the venom and reveals the protein-rich spirit of it. This one too is considered to have various medicinal qualities.

6. Baby Mice Wine

Baby Mice Wine - Most Dangerous drinks in the World

Hate rodents? Despise them? Want to render their existence meaningless. Stuff all the live baby mice that you can grab into a wine, maximum three days old, mind you. Let them drown till their miniature lungs are filled with wine, and leave them for fermentation for a year, and voila! You have your very own Baby Mice Wine, and you have a mice-free home too. Radical indeed. This one originates from China, and like others, has therapeutic qualities.

7. Seagull Wine

Seagull Wine - most Dangerous drinks in the world

This one has to be the manliest drink around. Invented by the Eskimos to brave the cold arctic climate, this one is made by mutilating a seagull; chop it into pieces or storing it whole in a bottle of water, and leaving it in the sun for a prolonged period of time till it ferments.

8. Purple Drank

Purple Drank - Most Dangerous drinks in the World

If you’re familiar with Rich Boy’s “Throw Some D’s,” you might already know about the “S-Y-R-U-P” craze that’s taken hold in the Southern hip-hop community. But just in case: They’re talking about purple drank, a mixture of prescription-strength codeine and promethazine cough syrup flavored with something sweet, like Sprite or Jolly Ranchers. While that may sound charming, the drank-related deaths of DJ Screw and Pimp C will with any luck scare the kids into realizing that it is not, in fact, as cool as it sounds.

9. Four Loko

Four Loko - Most dangerous drinks in the world

Already dubbed “badness in a can” by Harvard University Health Services and the subject of a breathless Frank Bruni essay, Four Loko is a so-called “alcopop” containing up to 12.5 percent alcohol, the equivalent of five cups of coffee, and some nasty fruit-flavored soda. The potent combo has led to several hospitalizations, but we doubt that’ll deter college kids from buying it.

10. Unpasteurized Milk

Unpasteurized Milk - most dangerous drinks in the world

It might be true that pasteurized milk gives you indigestion and rushes kids through puberty before they learn how to tie their shoes, but the alternative is much worse: Before the pasteurization process was discovered during the industrial revolution, milk was a harbor for all sorts of diseases from salmonella to tuberculosis.
