Default Strange Drinks

What's the strangest drink you have come accross? I ask as I met a bloke last night who used to drink whisky and grapefruit juice, which sounds as unlikely as Baileys and lime juice.

I'd never heard of Jack Daniels and Ginger beer, but it's amazing.

Strange drinks? Water aside I'd say anything without alcohol is strange.

Do you just chuck Tang powder into gin and stir it up, then?

I got my barman to make me a bourbon mojito, not that strange but rare I'd say. Only ever get it served it 1 bar when I'm back in Manchester of all places.

Tuak - Indonesian palm flower wine - it has the look of foaming dishwater as it is generally served from the tub while still fermenting, typically drunk from a beaker made from a bamboo stem...it also has the bonus of being dirt cheap

Guinness & Rioja. Not mixed, but sip and slurp. Used to drink these at the Metropolitan Bar at Baker Street. Only cure for that particular hangover is a huge English breakfast at the underground pub at Smithfield Market.

Every evening I drink chilled red wine with extra ice. This is also accompanied by chilled cadbury's chocolate from the fridge.

Religiously followed.

Another drink from the old days was pernod and coke (not sure of this is still common or unusual but thought I would mention it anyway).

I like my red wine chilled, too, although I haven't tried it with ice. Especially light Italian red.
