Raise A Glass: The Best Celebratory Drinks Around The World.
China: Baijiu – Celebrations in China are synonymous with baijiu, their “white lightning.” To blend in the revelry, drink baijiu, drink it straight and like it! Except, unless you grew up with baijiu, you’re probably going to loathe the stuff. Think of is as the durian of alcohols: funky, odd, aged cheese in character, an acquired taste. To Prepare: Open your bottle of baijiu, pour it, shoot it. Then question what led you to that decision. [Photo: Badagnani/Wikimedia Commons]
