Wasp-Infused Liquor

Shouchuu is a Japanese liquor similar to vodka. For medicinal reasons, some people soak the corpses of giant wasps in it. Rocket News 24 reports:

Surprisingly, the benefits of drinking this filthy brew are said to include beautiful skin, recovery from fatigue, and the prevention of “lifestyle disease,” where repetition of your daily habits leads to sickness and depression. So, it would seem that — provided you can push past the look, smell, and taste of it — this drink is really quite good for you! We’re told that it’s in extremely high demand in Taiwan, of all places.

P.S. This drink reminds me of a recent tweet by cartoonist Zach Weinersmith:
