Hanoi - Snake Wine

“Snake Wine” dari Vietnam… Ada berani?!!! Arak eksotik ni merupakan antara yang mencuri tumpuan.  Ular berbisa (dan binatang berbisa lain seperti kala jengking) direndam dan “dijeruk” dalam arak yang dibuat dari beras atau bijirin lain. Daging ular tu biasanya tak dimakan (ntah laaa.. mungkin dia orang telan jugak kot). Ular tu dijeruk untuk dapatkan esen dan bisa ular tersebut yang bercampur dengan arak. Protein dalam bisa ular tu di neutral kan oleh etanol dalam arak menyababkan bisa tu jadi tak aktif.

Snake Wine from Vietnam… Anyone dare?!!! This exotic wine is one of the attraction in Vietnam. Venomous snakes (and other venomous animal like scorpions) infused and preserved in rice wine or other type of grain alcohol. The meat is normally not eaten (well… I don’t know.. maybe they did eat it as well). The snake is preserved for its essence and venom which will dissolved together in the liquor. The protein in the venom is neutralized by the ethanol and thus make it inactive.
