The Sour Toe cocktail is served by the Sourtoe Cocktail club. The Sour Toe cocktail is the addition of a real, preserved amputated toe, which is dropped into the glass.
It first appeared in 1973 when drinkers who consumed a glass of Champagne or beer that contained the toe could then declare themselves true "sourtoers."
Today, the toe can be placed in any drink but one rule still applies: "You can drink it fast, you can drink it slow -- but the lips have gotta touch the toe."
Some 60,000 people have reportedly tried the Sourtoe cocktail to date.
