Think Your Tough? Try Peru’s Jungle Snake DrinkApril 1, 2013
Next time you ask for a Snake Bite at your local pub, you never know, this might just be served up.
Think that you have strong stomach for drinking? Then you probably haven’t tried Peru’s jungle snake drink. On the edge of Peru’s northern Amazon Jungle in a small Jungle town called Rioja (north of Taropoto) locals frequently crack open a bottle of their local brew – snake drink. The alcoholic drink which comes complete with a snake (or serpent as they say in Spanish) is a popular tipple when relaxing with good friends.
Venomous snakes are often used to add extra flavor but you don’t need to worry, as the venom is denatured by the ethanol in the drink. Young snakes are placed in the bottle just before they are too big to fit and are covered in Alcohol and preserved.
