Medovukha is a honey-based alcoholic beverage made of honey, water and yeast. Depending on the very recipe, other components like grains, herbs, spices or fruits can be added sometimes. In Ukraine, medovukha is traditionally consumed on Christmas. It is generally accepted as a low-alcohol drink. Its alcoholic content varies from about 5% to more than 16%. But, then again, it all depends on the method of production.
