They say that first five days after the weekend are always the hardest. But it doesn’t always have to be that way. Each Monday we look forward to Thursday…because well, it gives an excuse to be “thirsty.” However, there are some drinks that we just don’t ever imagine consuming. Like these, for example. Here’s a roundup of the 5 weirdest alcoholic drinks to get a hold of this summer:

1) Bacon Vodka:

You can find bars that will serve bacon-infused vodka right in NYC, however now you can now buy it from Black Rock Spirits. Bacon for…breakfast, lunch and dinner?

2) Yogurito:

Produced in Holland and distributed in Japan, this alcoholic yogurt is super creamy and comes in plain and Strawberry. It can be used as a mixer as well. So…can this be classified as ‘healthy?’

3) Snake Whiskey:

Find these creepy alcoholic drinks in Asia. There are some health benefits to this mostly for men, including hair-loss prevention. Can we eat the snake after?

4) Kvass:

Popular in Russia, this beer is made with fermented black or rye bread. On a scale of 1 to bread, how thirsty are you?

5) Cynar:

Served as an after-dinner digestive in Italy and a mixer in Brazil and the United States (although I’ve never heard of it.) There are 13 different herbs and plants in this drink, artichoke being the most prominent. This drink is usually paired with lemon.
