Snake Wine

Does anyone know where I can find snake wine - most likely in Chinatown I assume?

    Anyway they all order online on te Asian Snake Wine shop, so you can get it there also i guess, easier and cheaper ?

      I had it in Mishima (Japanese place on Lexington btwn 30th and 31st) a few years back. Not sure if they still carry it. It had a turtle in it as well. Tasted like formaldehyde.

      That was homemade, I have never seen bottles for sale with the snake in it in any Chinatown liquor store. Someone else might know. I brought back a bottle from South East Asia that I have in my house though this is more for shock value then to drink.

        Safe? Legal?

          It is perfectly safe due to the alcohol content. Not sure about the legality.

          Mishima doesn't carry it and doesn't know anywhere that would... Anywhere else?
