Toe-tally gross! The bar that serves cocktails with real human toes
- Filed under:
Would you drink a cocktail with a real human toe at the bottom?
The Sourdough Saloon in Dawson City, Yukon Territory, Canada, is serving up the Sourtoe drink for $5 (about £3) a pop.
The beer mug is filled with Champagne and has a reportedly real pickled toe waiting for you at the "foot" of the glass.
According to The Sun, drinkers who try the Sourtoe even get a certificate to remind them of their accolade, but you have to let pickled body part touch your lips.
There's even a rhyme that goes with the drink: "You can drink it fast, you can drink it slow - but the lips have gotta touch the toe."
The Sourtoe is celebrating its 30th birthday this year.
Want to know where the idea came from? According to legend, back in 1973 Captain Dick "River Rat" Stevenson found a severed toe in a pickle jar in a countryside cabin, and decided to create the creepy drink.
The original toe reportedly lasted seven years until someone accidentally swallowed it.
Now, a regular supply of toes comes from the locals - living and dead - with the current being donated after a lawnmower accident.
One patron, called Jimmy Wayne, posted a pic of the toe on Flickr (above) and wrote: "Supposedly, the bar in the Downtown Hotel has several toes on salt. When you take a shot of whisky and the toe touches your lips, you join the "sourtoe cocktail club". It's a tradition in Dawson City--or a good way to make some money during the summer tourist season."
And we thought the Mexican worm was bad...
