"Hi. Russia may well be associated with hard liquor like Водка, but in this video I will be talking about our traditional soft drinks and non-alcoholic beverages." Part 1
[mostly juices] and Part 2
A few of the drinks mentioned, with tasting notes:
- Kvass - a strong sweet/sour beverage, with a definite flavor of rye bread.
- Tarkhun - very pronounced herbal flavor, delicately tart. Unmistakable tarragon flavor (close to anise/licorice but "greener").
- Baikal - tastes like a forest. Really. Strong evergreen and pine sap notes.
- Buratino [link goes to origin of the name] - golden bubblegum soda. [Bonus NSFW Buratino Weirdness]
