Mongolian Fermented Horse Milk – November Gross-Out Bar Drink Of The Month

Delicious

To the Dome

Mongolia is famous for their horses, but that fame goes much farther than just for riding them. Mongolians also milk them, and this sweet horse milk is turned into an alcoholic beverage called Airag.

Tov aimag, July 2006

Once the mare’s milk has been collected it is stored in a container made from the stomach of a cow or from horsehide, where it is then hung outside of the entrance to a yurt. Here it will sit to ferment until it becomes a tasty beverage with about 5% alcohol content.

The traditional way to drink Airag.
