“Lao Khao” – rice whiskey – is the Thai-in-the-street’s tipple of choice. He’s in the street because he can’t crawl into the shade. Because he’s in the delerious process of killing himself with this dirt cheap high-octane beverage. It’s made for one reason only – to reduce the human being to a state of vegetable decay in the shortest time, at the lowest cost. It’s brutally effective. In spite of some internet opinion to the contrary (“it’s actually okay”, slurs one blogger) it’s undrinkable for anyone with a taste bud left in his mouth and/or a brain cell left in his head. It is vile stuff.
What’s the worst drink you’ve ever drunk?
