I had two official drinks when I started school: root beer and sarsi. I didn’t know any other kid who liked what I liked, and I guess that was the start of my being the oddball that i am now.
Back then, there was this weird concoction you can do with sarsi: add one raw egg. I remember sipping it the classic pinoy way: with a straw, and contained in a plastic bag, the type used to sell ice.
So I posed a question over Plurk about it, and no, I found out it wasn’t something that was just done in the 80s. Read more here.
So, being the naturally brave soul I am, I present you with my refreshing post-breakfast drink:
It was good. Like root beer float.
However, the smell of the raw egg already mixed well into the soda drink was still present. So it did help that I drank it before with a straw, in about a foot long plastic bag, and my chosen hand stopping any aroma that could come out of the drink by gripping the bag in the middle, since that is how you handle the thing. It is not that unpleasant, but its something you can’t just ignore.
