Bucketlist or no Linda? Trip to the Yukon for a sourtoe cocktail. It is just an old frost bitten toe and whisky. @thereallindavino #travel #canada #yukon #cocktails #happyhour #oldtoe #sourtoe #sourtoecocktail

Probably one of the most disgusting things I have ever heard of, getting sick as I type this!  

“When I was going into the [operating room] I asked the surgeon if I could save my toes and told him what it was for. He found it quite amusing,” Griffiths said. “I wrote to the Downtown Hotel to tell them about my toes and what had happened, and they said they’d love to have them.” Nick Griffiths is a giver.

The bar has a collection of 10 dismembered toes that they embalm in whiskey and serve to their patrons. Over 100,000 patrons have ordered the Sourtoe Cocktail.

The Downtown Hotel has offered the Sourtoe Cocktail since 1973 and has some rules when it comes to drinking their toe-jam drink. To be a member of the Sourtoe Cocktail Club you must adhere to a few rules such as don’t eat the toe, otherwise, you have to pay a $500 fine. [Brobible]

My son came home from school today telling me about tales of the #Yukon ....including about #sourtoe cocktail. I thought I would show him my Sourtoe Certificate! #membersince1995 #member132 #dawson @travelyukon #yukon #proudofhismama #imold
