Beatrice Inn Will Serve Snake Venom Cocktails

When the much-hyped Beatrice Inn reopens later this year, its cocktail menu might not be for the faint-hearted. Rumors predict that at least one drink at the revamped lounge will likely have some bite.

According to Societe Perrier (via Grub Street), the former den of disasters, which shuttered in 2009, will feature Habu-Snake Sake on its future drinks menu. On the heels of his trip to Japan, Beatrice's head chef, Brian Nasworthy, conceived the cocktail, which will feature liquor that has been infused with "pit viper." Those concerned about falling to their deaths upon imbibing can relax as "the alcohol helps the venom dissolve and become non-lethal."

Well, in that case. . . .
