What Dawson City Drink Makes Russell Peters Want To Vomit?
submit to reddit

Comedian Russell Peters was none too impressed when we got him to narrate our latest Something You Might Not Know About Canada learning segment.

It seems the idea of drinking a cocktail with a pickled human toe in it -- like the "Sourtoe Cocktail" served at the Sourdough Hotel in Dawson City, Yukon -- did not appeal to Peters. The words "I'm off to vomit now" got used along the way.

The rules for drinking the toe juice are simple: You can drink it fast, you can drink it slow, but your lips have to touch the toe.

FYI, if you've got a spare toe hanging around, the folks at the Sourdough are looking for one.
