DO YOU DARE TO TRY SNAKE WINE IN MEKONG DELTA?
Snake wine is an alcoholic beverage produced by infusing whole snakes in rice wine or grain alcohol.It’s considered an important curative and believed to reinvigorate a person according to traditional medicine. It can be found in every village of Vietnam.
The snakes, preferably venomous ones, are not usually preserved for their meat but to have their “essence” and snake venom dissolved in the liquor. The snake venom poses no threat to the drinker. It is denatured by the ethanol—its proteins are unfolded and would be denatured by stomach acid anyway.
Please join us to try snake wine at least once in your life.
