Scorpion Vodka

To think…I had more than a few reservations about eating the worm in my tequila bottle. This is a SCORPION. Now, I’ve been assured that this particular scorpion is 100% safe to eat and has been bred in China to be consumed. I’ve also been assured that the scorpion has undergone a process that has neutralized the venom in its body. Despite those assurances, I still don’t think I’d be able to wolf down this particular shot — not because of the scorpion, but because of the hefty $16 price tag.
