Here is a little something special from the "BlueGrass" state. The home of Bourbon Whiskey and really fast race horses. Kentucky.


Bourbon!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bourbon_County,_Kentucky

And a fine example of same. Not a snooty, sippin bourbon to be sure. But well made, high proof and authentic.

yeah, it an infused drink similar to tea... check this wiki explanation:

Mate (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈmate]), also known as chimarrão (Portuguese: [ʃimaˈhɐ̃w̃]) or cimarrón, is a traditional South American infused drink, particularly in Uruguay, Argentina, Paraguay, southern states of Brazil, south of Chile, the Bolivian Chaco, and to some extent, Syria and Lebanon. It is prepared from steeping dried leaves of yerba mate (llex paraguariensis, known in Portuguese as erva mate) in hot water.
Mate is served with a metal straw from a shared hollow calabash gourd. The straw is called a bombilla in some Latin American countries, a bomba in Portuguese, and a bombija or in general a masassa (type of straw) in Arabic. The straw is traditionally made of silver. Modern commercially available straws are typically made of nickel silver, called Alpaca, stainless steel, or hollow-stemmed cane. The gourd is known as a mate or a guampa, while in Brazil it has the specific name of cuia. Even if the water comes in a very modern thermos, the infusion is traditionally drunk from mates or cuias.

Well, in the part of Germany I live in, we have this traditional food called "Töttchen" (yeah, I'd really like to hear you you guys try to say it wink.gif ). In the past, it was called "poor people's food" and it consisted of brain, lungs, liver, tongue from cattle. Nowadays they simply use beef...it doesn't look very delicious, and personally, I dön't really like it laugh.gif
Hm, I could think of so many other specialities from other german regions, but let's leave it at that...
