2 WEIRD BREWS: MADE FROM SNAKE AND MICE ~ :: Habari Duniani


Weird brews around the World.

Snake wine, Vietnam

The history of snake wine starts in China but has spread throughout South-east Asia and is especially popular in Vietnam, where poisonous snakes are infused in rice wine (their venom is rendered harmless by the alcohol). It’s drunk by brave locals, Instagramming tourists and is also said to be a male health tonic (yes, in all ways). If animal cruelty isn’t an issue for you, there’s Le Mat (known as “Snake Village”) in Hanoi, where you can pick out a live snake, have it slaughtered to order and are then served a flight of drinks infused with its blood, gall bladder juice and heart.

Baby mice wine, China

China’s renowned for its interesting foods, but this one takes the biscuit: wine infused with dead mice – only babies, though, because ones with fur would be disgusting. It’s not common, but can still be found in southern China, where it’s usually used as a health tonic rather than straight up booze. (For straight up booze, try snake wine.)
