A Whale Of A Beer

image
We have all heard of seasonal beers and ales.Many (most) of us have tried a few as well. In Iceland one of their breweries is producing an interesting seasonal brew. Each batch is flavored by one lightly salted, smoked whale testicle. Would anyone here try it if they could?

A Snort History



The takeaway message? Drinking and driving is an eternal fun recreation of humanity, encoded in the genome of the species, and will never cease.

What is this miraculous "sambuci wine?" I'm glad you asked.

Preparation.—Take of elder bark, parsley root, each, in coarse powder, 1 ounce; sherry wine, 1 pint, or a sufficient quantity. Form into a medicated wine by maceration or percolation, as explained under Vina Medicata, and make one pint of the preparation.

Action, Medical Uses, and Dosage.—Wine of elder is useful in dropsical diseases, especially ascites, and dropsy supervening upon scarlatina or other exanthematous diseases. Dose, 2 fluid ounces, 3 or 4 times a day.
