A hotel in Dawson City, Yukon has a tradition which involves drinking a shot of whiskey with a withered old toe inside. To enjoy the “Sourtoe Cocktail” properly, you must touch your lips to the toe. (Which has been dehydrated and preserved in salt.)
To prevent theft or swallowing, the bar established a $500 fine. That’s just what one American man paid…after swallowing and eating the toe! The hotel is currently using a backup toe, but is seeking a replacement.
