Not only are they wild dancers, but Georgians also have a knack of creating fizzy drinks with a twist. Take the Georgian pharmacist Mitrophane Laghidze who in 1887 came up with the unusual idea of infusing carbonated water with tarragon extract. The refreshing beverage earned itself a faithful following among his compatriots.
It also won over Wostok, which is now introducing a new version of the historic green drink to the West. Tweaked with ginger and orange juice, the refreshing herby beverage has a spicy kick.
