I'm not very adventurous when it comes to food. Mostly it has to do with the fact that my digestive system is about as stable as an abandoned warehouse. But I'm getting better and trying new places that my wife and I happen upon in our travels. So we stopped at this place that shall remain nameless and decided that since the weather was nice we would eat on their patio. The waitress brings us our drinks and as I go to take a sip I notice an ant floating in it. No big deal, right? So I scoop out his little insect carcass and flick it to the ground so his family can prepare his burial. Or eat him, I dunno, I'm not really up to date on their funeral customs. Then I return to my delicious beverage to find another dead ant. And another. And I notice that they are all through my soda. The waitress notices my carcass retrieval efforts and quickly offers to get me another drink. At this point I'm not sure how the little buggers all got in there so fast, but I ask that we move inside to hopefully stop their invasion. Then I overhear the bartender complaining about how nobody had flushed the soda line that morning and they were filled with ants. I was the unlucky first customer who got a bit of protein with my Coke. Now here's where it gets weird: we stayed and ate. I think I may be going completely mental, because a drink full of dead bugs is reason enough to lose ones appetite, but they gave me another one and we ate and the food was really good. But the thing that really got me pissed was that they didn't comp us the drinks. It would have been the nice thing to do, a way to say "sorry for almost making you drink a cup of bugs." That, my friends, was the act that will prevent me from eating there again.
So I've had some experience drinking shady beverages, even ones filled with little dead bodies. Lunartik made 213 of these "Witches Brew" Cups of Tea for Halloween and you can own one right now for £20.00 by visiting http://www.lunartik.com/.
