Horse-semen shots that taste ‘like custard’ a hit in Kiwi pub
Wellington, June 25: Apple-infused horse semen shots have become a hot item in a New Zealand pub this month especially among women customers, who are flocking there to get a sip of the drink.
The central Wellington's Green Man Pub is serving the shots as it celebrates its entry in the nationwide 14th annual Monteith's Beer and Wild Food Challenge.
While the rest of the meal of seared Asian duck and pork and paua spring rolls served sounds delicious - it is the Hoihoi tatea, or horse semen drink, which is on everyone's minds.
Pub chef, Jason Varley, said the drink, which cost 300 dollars for 20 vials of semen, was proving most popular with women.
"Ladies thought it was great a couple were going to go home and get their husbands to eat grass," Stuff.co.nz quoted Varley as saying.
But men have not been so keen on the concoction.
"The men were very stand-offish. But a few have manned-up and said it is palatable," he stated.
The pub will only be serving the drink for the duration of the Beer and Wild Food Challenge, which runs for a month from June 3.
