What's the worst thing you've ever had to drink? Medicines, beverages etc.
Two things are prominent in my memory for being utterly ghastly.
The first I called “worm stuff.” It’s what our parents gave me as a kid when they suspected some intestinal wormage. I don’t recall the product name but it was a powder that came in satchets. The powder was disolved in tap water to produce a purple solution that had a uniquely vile taste and smell that filled your mouth, nose, ears and brain. It had my gag reflex going like a ungoverned steam piston *does a little sick in mouth and swallows*
The second, much more recently ingested was a radiographic contrast agent called Gastrografin. I was started on this about 16 hours before an abodominal CT scan and had to drink glass after glass. Absolutely f-o-u-l. There was a hint of aniseed but that failed to make it remotely palatable. Good lord – my uvula is twitching just thinking about glugging the stuff down.

Some #### once dumped a load of cayene pepper in my brew… oh hang on a moment… that was you Mr Starship.
On Scout camp many years ago due to an untidy patrol box and a lack of light me and my mate once made an ern of tea with 7 tea bags and a Brillo. Tangy.Posted 6 years agoPJM1974Member
At a recent cider festival I was given a suspiciously pale looking liquid in a pint glass that smelled like a tramp’s pee. I’ve never tasted tramps’ pee but I daresay it probably compares favourably with that cider.
And cinzano. At the tender age of sixteen I managed to get off with an otherwise unfeasibly hot girl at a party who’d been downing the stuff. The taste is still with me twenty one years later.Posted 6 years ago2hottieMember
A cement mixer one drunken night at the pub,
consists of one measure of Baileys and one measure of Cointreau in same glass.
Had to drink it but keep the horrid solution in my mouth and swill it for a minute! it turns in to a lovely past hence cement mixer.
Never again.Posted 6 years agomike_pMember
Stroh 80, some revolting Austrian rum that’s the same alcoholic strengh as aftershave. If you put ice in it the exothermic reaction between the alcohol & water makes the bloody stuff heat up – you can feel it burning all the way as it goes down! Then 15 minutes later the lights go out.Posted 6 years agoebygommMember

Pripsen, I’d agree there
Closely followed by a root beer float, can’t believe anyone would drink that for fun.Posted 6 years agoFortunateson09Member
Tibetan Yak butter tea. A big group of us had it thrust upon us, and everyone that drank it and wasn’t a Tibetan guide was instantly sick. It was pretty exciting.
Closely followed by some sort of fermented raisin, pigeon blood and mashed antler concoction – also in Tibet.
Closely followed by Deuchars IPA.Posted 6 years agoBigButSlimmerBlokeMember
Some home made bramble wine that was still fermenting.Posted 6 years ago
4 or 5 of us sat round, drunk wanting more to booze when someone suggested the demijohn of homebrew in the cupboard
“Don’t the bubbles mean it’ss till fermenting?”
“yup, but it means it’s got some alcohol as well”
