Traditional Chinese medicine brings us this week’s featured delicacy, snake wine. Made by either steeping a cobra (or cobra look-alike) in rice wine or by cutting off the snake’s head to drain its blood and adding it to wine, people throughout Asia drink snake wine with the belief that it can cure a number of ailments. Find out how snake wine tastes when we feed it to our co-workers and what the very interesting side effects are on this week’s episode of Why Would You Eat That?
