Baby Mouse Wine
|Baby mouse wine. All bad.|
Used as a cure all in rural parts of Korea, it's made by stuffing a hoard of two to three day old mice into a bottle of rice wine and leaving it to stew for, ooh, a good year or so.
After that you'll have a ricey-mice concoction fit for... mentally scarring your own children.
Don't get me wrong, I like to think I'm a pretty cosmopolitan bloke, but I can't imagine ever feeling the need to imbibe tiny rodents. Ever.
Interesting fact: A 2006 study at Harvard found that red wine extracts helped obese mice to live longer and happier lives. Maybe that's a little bit of alcoholic karma coming into play for this little video:

Before you start, yes we know the bottle label is in Chinese, but I've been assured that the picture was taken in Korea - thanks, Ed.
