Baby Mice Wine (Korea)

Baby mice wine is a traditional Chinese and Korean health tonic. As little as three-day old mice, whose eyes are still closed are stuffed alive into a bottle of rice wine (bei jiu). After fermenting for 12 to 14 months, hopefully they are finally safe to drink. Some words of caution: If not properly collected, the mice can end up contaminating your drink. If you’re still interested in giving this a try, be warned the wine is said to taste like gasoline.
