Killer Snake Sake

by Carmelita Morales

Anyone care for a shot? I found these jars of Habu snake sake while I was on the island of Okinawa in Japan. I really wanted to bring one home but then I thought of the scene I'd make at customs coming home and thought a photo might be best.

Bottles of (very expensive) "Habu sake" are sold in almost any alcohol store on the big island of Okinawa prefecture; the habu venom present in the sake (along with a dead snake on the bottom) is reputed to increase male virility. Some less expensive bottles have the venom but no snake in the bottom.

Tiger penis soup, snake sake, and viagra - all for 'increasing men's virility'. Aren't we happy to be girls? Just give me a vodka and red bull and vroom vroom, I'm virile!
