Brave a sourtoe cocktailDawson City, Canada

True to its name, this Canadian cocktail contains one alcohol-preserved human toe. Toes are donated by willing patrons, eager to keep the tradition alive – one toe was even received with a note that read, “Don’t wear open-toe sandals while mowing the lawn.”

To get your share of toe, head on down to the Sourdough Saloon at the Downtown Hotel in Dawson, request a Captain River Hat, purchase a shot, take the sourtoe oath and then, “You can drink it fast, you can drink it slow – but the lips have gotta touch the toe.” We recommend drinking it slowly, however, because accidentally swallowing the toe means you’ll have to shell out a hefty fine of $500. Also, gross!

A glass will set you back US$5.

You need to have a stomach of steel and a heart full of courage to down this drop.
