Worst Drink Ever

In Atlanta, my wife and I went to the World of Coke which is right across from the aquarium.  Not really that exciting but they do have a tasting room with 65 flavors of drinks from around the world that they produce.  By far the most disgusting thing I have ever tasted is Beverly from Italy.  Seriously, my wife gagged and said it was awful and I still took a drink and had the same feeling.  I guess it is quinine flavored though the guy there told us it was grapefruit rind flavored.  I don't know if it is intended to be mixed with something but straight up it is undrinkable.  Go to youtube and put it in the search and you will see a lot of people's reaction to it. 
 
Has anyone else ever tried it or even maybe like it?  Also, has anyone been to Italy and can confirm if they drink it straight or as a mixer.  Just wondering

    Hansen's makes an excellent diet grapefruit soda.  Love it.  The tangerine lime is good too.

    At EPCOT in Disney World Orlando, they have a small shop in the front half of the park, near the gift shops before you go across to the world Showcase.  Same concept, they have a whole bunch of coke dispensers with probably 50 or 60 different countries to try.
     
    I think I've had that Italian concoction, not very good IMO.  It's funny how different countries have different tastes.  I'd like to try a place like that for beer or wine, of course there would have to be someone limiting intake.

    Coke has a tasting exhibit at EPCOT. It's become a tradition to con first time visitors to taste that stuff and wait for the reaction. It is god awful! Maybe it makes grappi taste palatable?

    I had the same stuff at the Coke Museum in Las Vegas.... It was awful.  I really couldn't imagine that people drink that stuff on purpose. 

    I actually stayed in the tasting room for quite awhile longer than I would have, just to watch people's reactions to tasting it.  I can't think of one positive response to tasting it.

     @Mar52,

    Do you like ginger ale? I recently started drinking cel ray with my pastrami sandwiches after years of not being willing to try it. To me, it tastes pretty much like ginger ale, with maybe a somewhat fruitier/vegetably-er flavor.

    Wow! I didn't realize that there were 65 different flavors made by Coca-Cola. It surprises me that the grapefruit one would be so bad. After all, I'm sure they make flavors that you wouldn't want to drink in plain juice form. But grapefruit juice is pretty tasty!
    According to the Wikipedia entry for the Beverly drink, it actually IS flavored with quinine. Why??
    Here's a photo of the Beverly dispenser at the World of Coke. Some of the comments under it are pretty funny.

    BigAl72,

    I'm a big fan of Ginger Ale.  I've given Cel Ray a few tries and can't do it.

    However, I like Moxie and Pelagrino Aperatif.

    I've got to agree with the Dr. Brown's Cel Ray, pretty nasty stuff.

    The Moxie on the other hand is one of my favorites.

    Here's a good site if you have difficulty finding it.

    The local General Store in New Hill, NC got a big assortment of new Yoo-Hoo flavors. Several of us  got Chocolate-Banana thinking that it was the original Yoo-Hoo flavor (the bottle labels were nearly identical). We all thought that the stuff had spoiled. Nasty!

    Big surprise - the same General Store started carrying Hispanic sodas. I tried Sugarcane Soda. It didn't have much flavor, but it did chunks of sugar cane suspended in it. I got a bunch of stringy fibers stuck in my teeth. Living near an old service station that had a huge collection of junk found in still full soda bottles - cigarettes, cracker wrappers, bugs and a mouse - made me nearly spit it out on the floor.

    The Little Rebel Drive-in in Stateville, NC had a fountain soft drink called the "Witch Doctor". This was all of the sodas mixed together (Coke, Sprite, Orange, Grape, and Root Beer) with sweet pickle juice and served in a milkshake cup with ice and a sweet pickle spear. It didn't taste that bad, but was an indescribable muddy brown color.

    By far the most disgusting thing I have ever tasted is Beverly from Italy. 

     
     
    Well, I think we've just guaranteed that Beverly
    will never post here again. Arrivederci, B!

    I used to be a fan of Dr Pepper until I bought a two liter bottle absent of all 23 flavors. It was absent of all flavorings and consisted of soda water and coloring. Insipid to say the least.

    My trust in the company was lost. If they can forget to put the favoring into the drink I wonder about their general safety standards. I have not and will not indulge in a Dr Pepper again.

     I grew up with what was called a "Suicide" which had everything on tap mixed in, just no pickle juice added to it.

    The worst alcoholic drink I ever had was Hop'n'Gator.  I remember trying it at MSU as a freshman in '71 - it was a mixture of malt liquor & Gatorade in a can.  The appeal was supposed to be that the Gatorade got the malt liquor into your system faster.

    It was exactly as bad as you would expect Colt .45 mixed with Gatorage to be.
