“You can drink it fast, you can drink it slow, but your lips have got to touch the toe.” The Sourtoe Cocktail dates to the 1920s when a rumrunner amputated his toe after freezing it solid. Today, the Downtown Hotel in Dawson City offers a cocktail featuring a preserved toe and an ounce of alcohol of the participant’s choice. If you can drink the shot, you get a lifelong membership into the Sourtoe Cocktail Club.
