"A toast to you!"
Snake Whiskey. The story is that this is used in Asia as a very strong aphrodisiac and also has many medical uses, such as treatment of back and muscle pain. I am told it is an acquired taste and is used for celebratory events. This special whiskey is infused with cobra snake, vine snake, centipedes, scorpions, ginger root, and numerous other ingredients. The whiskey was sold for $32 US in a small store near the Regent Hotel in Beijing, China Note: this cannot be taken through customs.
