Kumys (sp?) & Campa Cola

Tom Hilton | Jun 25, 2002 03:37 PM

According to the definitive Tolstoy biography ("Tolstoy: The Myth, the Legend, and the Fabrication", by Dr. Treppenwitz), when Tolstoy was in India he tried a mix of kumys and Campa Cola. He is reported to have said it was "the most revolting thing I have ever tasted", except that he said it in Russian, which greatly mystified the locals. What I'm wondering is, how can I get these hands on these ingredients so I can find out for myself if it's truly as foul as it sounds?
