Sourtoe Cocktail - Yuck factor included

Volunteers ahead: The Downtown Hotel in Dawson City, Canada, serves what may be the world's grossest drink - but 10,000 people have already tasted it anyway.

Captain Dick Stevenson discovered a severed human toe in an abandoned cabin in 1973. The toe had been preserved in alcohol. Together with friends, he developed the idea of creating a drink with the toe.

And so the Sourtoe Cocktail was invented. In a whiskey floats a black discolored toe including toenail. Those who can overcome their disgust and drink it so far that the toe touches their lips are awarded a certificate.
The motto here is: You can drink it fast, you can drink it slow, but your lips must touch the toe!

By the way, putting the toe in your mouth or even swallowing the toe is forbidden.

About 100,000 people from all over the world have already dared and tasted the drink.

Of course, the toe has been replaced over time, and the club has even received about 10 toes as donations.

The inventor of the Sourtoe Cocktail Captain Dick Stevenson passed away in 2019 at the age of 89. His toes were also preserved at his request and donated to the Sourtoe Cocktail Club.
