My country's national alcoholic beverage is barely alcohol..."suwa". xD

As for Arabs, they definitely have alcoholic drinks...My dad used to tell me how he'd drink this highly alcoholic drink called Arak or araqi in Sudan, where he used to live (even though any alcohol would've been banned under the law).

Hmm. If you want a truly American alcohol, I guess you can say virgin corn Moonshine would be about as American as you can get. Mostly illegal, potentially blinding and occasionally lethal, it is a non-aged liquor that is know for its high alcohol content and flammability. Other countries have their own kind of moonshine but corn based "White Lightening" has been made in the US almost since its foundation.

In Vietnam they have what people called as "De" liquor; read as 'Dee' I think. It used to be a moonshine as it was illegal to make liquor at home. People brew it in their house away. When the liquor inspectors came check if they were making illegal liquor, they carried their tools and liquors out the back door and hid them in tall bushes of grass. The tall grass is called De and thus the liquor was passed around is called the De liquor even though it doesn't have any of the De grass in it.

It's exactly like the normal sake as it is made of rice but it's made with a certain percentage of sweet sticky rice to give it a strong flavor. In fact, that is probably the only ingredient that matter for the liquor. You can just brew your own De liquor as long as you have any kind of liquor then mix in the sweet sticky rice and start brewing.

In China, they have a lot of different liquor with each have a different name as they are distinct in their region. One of them is called the "Blushing Beauty", I think. It's the type of strong but easy to drink liquor that you drink with young women who are novice at drinking. The strong liquor causes their cheeks to become red as they get tipsy. Then you can get flirty with them as they blush.

They also have the ginseng wine. I think this is popular in Taiwan also. Essentially, you put ginseng into strong liquor to give it color and flavor as well as the perceived health benefits.

Snake wine and almost any kind of liquor with some sort of animals in it originate from China I think. I remember my grand father used to have a giant jug of liquor he called the Tiger wine. He said it had some tiger bones in it.
