Ouzo. National alcoholic drink in Greece, flavoured with anis. Made my stomach sick like never before.
Also calvados is not to my liking.

I love Slivovitz! It's really good on a cold evening. The first sip or two is a little rough sometimes, but after that it's quite yummy.

Oh! You reminded me of the Greek wine called Retsina ... something that has millions of fans all over the world. This wine is fermented in underaged pine wood barrels that are still has traces of sap resin (hence the name). To my tastebuds it imparts an unpleasant turpentine taste!

Our daughter did a rotation in Greece. We went there for a month. Actually acquired a taste for Ouzo (ww still drink it when we eat at Greek restaurants.)

Also, acquired a taste for retsina, a Greek wine that has a strong resin flavor. Most Americans don't like it.

Never, ever, acquired a taste for Raki. Our Greek friends constantly try to get us to like it. Tastes like crap Raki - Top 10 Ridiculously Strong Drinks - TIME

Fernet and Campari. YUCK. Also Wild Turkey, Jose Cuervo, and most beer - especially crappy p*ss-water beer like Budlight or something. Just the smell of beer grosses me out.

There was a woman in a local bar complaining tonight that no one has campari. The bar owner (who is a great guy with a very dry sense of humour) just said, "There is a reason for that."

Ouzo, Pernod, Slivovitz and Cynar are all wonderful drinks. I enjoy Malort as well, though I can understand why some people wouldn't. People are nuts.

haha yeah the one time I tasted it, I was like WTF IS THIS CRAP?!? It is SO disgustingly BITTER!! The taste lingered, too, even after I drank other things to get rid of it, ha. Nasty.

Whatever makes up a martini. To me, truly revolting. Couldn't go beyond a sip. Ate the olive only.
