We’ve seen it in all the travel and food tv shows everywhere, its become one of those things that seemingly everyone must rush out to do on their show to prove whatever it is that they’ve got to prove, drinking Vietnamese Snake Whiskey. It shows daring and courage and strength and supposedly its good for the sex drive. Whatever. So here’s the thing, it kind of just taste like whiskey, so don’t freak out, a little earthier if that makes sense. While you can buy snake whiskey in a bottle at the airport, that’s not really doing it right. You need to get out in to the countryside where they make it in big plastic vats with the snakes just tossed in there. So even if you’re just going to say, “Yeah I did it, I drank snake whiskey” at least you can have some cool photos of you doing it in a grass hut somewhere on the Mekong.
Tasty, tasty… and you got to travel to Vietnam in the process.
