In many parts of Asia you can find a species of bird called the swiftlet. Certain species, known as cave swiftlets, are unique in that rather than building nests from twigs they form intricately woven threads from their gummy saliva. These threads then harden when exposed to air.

These nests are a prized culinary ingredient through much of Asia as they are thought to promote healthy skin, strengthen the liver, and boost the immune system (this is partially true as the saliva has high amounts of calcium and potassium). These nests can go for nearly $30-$10,000 per kilogram depending on the type of species of swiftlet the nest comes from and due to the difficulty in harvesting the nests themselves. (Incidentally, many species of cave swiftlet are in danger of going extinct due to this harvesting.) They're often used in bird's nest soup and in various drinks. 

A friend brought a few of these bird's nest drinks over during a game of mah jongg one night. Now, given, eating bird spit has never been one of those things I've ever longed to try both because of the ecological impact and because it sounds a bit gross (but, then again, I eat honey and that's not much different). Still, they were here so I tried it. 

The mixture is made of only sugar, bird's nest, and water. The resulting taste is that of a slightly minerally and even somewhat floral simple syrup. There is an odd texture from the bits of rock candy and nest floating about. Honestly, the idea is far more exotic and unique than the flavor. Still, I bet you could create some truly wicked cocktails from this.
