The weird things we drink, Pt. I

Waiter... there's a snake in my whisky

The Mexicans have their Tequila worms and the Laotians have their... snakes and scorpions.

At the small island of Don Sao in Laos (note to would be travellers: stay away), I saw dozens of bottles lined up at market stalls. As I got closer I could see that they all contained the local specialty: rice whisky with snakes or with scorpions.

Whisky Sour, anyone?
