Durian fruit is a type of fruit that smells godawful. A "pearl drink" is
a cold sweet drink, frequently made with milk, which has balls of
tapioca at the bottom. Usually served in a plastic cup with a straw
(extra wide straw so the tapioca "pearls" can go through). Probably
invented in East Asia. They've become popular in the U.S. near college
campuses probably due to large numbers of asian students. The capuccino
ones taste mighty good.
So, a durian pearl drink is a durian-flavored drink with tapioca pearls.
