Will and Dave Willis Are Bully for Booze

In my latest Food Republic column, I train my swollen liver's attention on Bully Boy Distillers, a brotherly duo out of Boston who are reviving the city's spirits heritage. A century earlier, Boston was part of the Triangle Trade, which brought molasses from the West Indies to the city. Thus, the city was lousy with rum, an industry that gave up the ghost during Prohibition. Enter Will and Dave Willis, brothers who, in June, started crafting whiskey, vodka and, of course, rum. Curious about how they entered the spirits world? Check out the full story at Food Republic. Drink it up!

Hit Me With Your Worst Shot

That's a pickled human toe from Canada's Sourdough Saloon. You drink whiskey. With the toe. In a drink called the Sourtoe Cocktail.

With more than a decade of professional drinking under my belt (and a few other years of, ahem, recreational drinking), I've taken my fair share of fetid shots. Whiskey, moonshine, horseradish vodka, mama juana: you name it, I've likely flung it down my gullet. And just for you, I've corralled 10 of the worst shots known to mankind for today's tale penned for the Daily Meal: "Hit Me With Your Worst Shot." Drink it up. If you dare.
