Taylor takes a shot of horse semen at The Green Man. Happy birthday!
Lewis downs a shot of apple-flavoured horse semen at Wellngton’s Green Man pub in the name of student journalism.
A pub in New Zealand has introduced horse semen to its drinks menu, a stomach-churning addition tinged with the wholesome flavour of apple.
The Green Man Pub in Wellington offers the 30ml shots for a princely sum of £12 – and apparently it’s going down a treat with regulars.
The gastro-pub serves the drink chilled fresh from a Christchurch stallion farm and each shot contains about 300 million individual horse sperm cells.
Green Man pub co-owner Steven Drummond is to blame for the grimace-inducing drink, which he explained is knocked back by both male and female customers.
He advises his customers to shoot the sticky horse semen back in one gulp rather than attempt to sip the bizarre concoction.
He came up with the idea when trying to invent a new drink to spice-up a local food challenge.

The central Wellington bar offering horse semen shots has had to increase its stocks to deal with extra demand.
The apple-infuse semen shots are part of the Green Man pub’s entry in the annual Monteith’s Beer & Wild Food Challenge.
Co-owner Steve Drummond said massive worldwide interest in the virile vials has meant he is now ordering stock in litres.
“We’ve got it coming in bulk now,” Drummond said.
“We’ve got a hundred shot glasses coming today, but that’s all going to go tonight. I’ll be ordering in another three litres in early next week too, by the look of it.”
Drummond was not concerned about stocks running out from the stallions supplying the liquid.
“I guess they would get fatigued like anyone would, but I believe they have a reasonably large reservoir of the stuff.”

Apple-infused horse semen shots might not be an obvious chaser to spring rolls, but they are causing a stir at the Green Man Pub where they are being served.
The shots are part of the central Wellington pub’s entry in the nationwide 14th annual Monteith’s Beer & Wild Food Challenge.
While the rest of the meal of seared Asian duck and pork and paua spring rolls sounds delicious – it is the Hoihoi tatea, or horse semen drink which is on everyone’s minds.
Green Man Pub chef, Jason Varley, said the drink 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,” he said.
But Mr Varley added that some woman had their concerns.
“A couple of them were worried they might bear children with long faces,” he joked.
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.”
Mr Varley admits to trying the drink himself which he said was “ok”, and “like custard”.
Staff member, Carrie Henderson, said most customers appreciated the drink was a “tongue in cheek” offering.
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.
It is not the first time the drink has been served up it has appeared on the menu at the the Hokitika Wild Foods Festival in the past.
However for restauranters, the delicacy does not come cheap, at a cost of $300 for 20 vials of semen.
While assertions have been made about the possible health benefits of drinking semen due to the possibility of boosted testosterone levels due to the DHEA hormone, Green Man co-owner Steve Drummond has not had any repeat customers for the drink.
“I don’t think anyone’s had a particular taste for it . . . no one’s addicted to it, lets put it that way,” he said.
Food Standards Manager Judy Barker said the horse semen would not pose any health issues.
“MAF’s interest is in the safety and suitability of food. Provided the product is sourced under the regulated system, it appears this practice poses no concerns.”
