    "You can drink it fast. You can drink it slow. But your lips must touch that gnarly toe."

    In the 1920s, Louie Linken got frostbite during a rum-run. To prevent gangrene, his brother Otto chopped off Louie's toe with an axe and put it in a jar of alcohol. It was found in a remote cabin in 1973 by Captain Dick Stevenson who came up with the idea of the Sourtoe Cocktail Club. Since then, with more toes in circulation, some have been stolen and even swallowed! Try it at the Sourdough Saloon in Dawson City, if you dare! But watch the video first!
