For a town as quirky as Dawson City, their taste in mixed drinks is just...weird!

Rebecca Palsha and Hank Davis stop in at the Downtown Hotel in Dawson City to see what the “sourtoe cocktail” is all about.

The cocktail is a straight shot of hard liquor, the classic mix of Yukon Jack,” says the “toe master” Terry Lee. “The sour toe portion is a severed human toe.”

It’s not for the faint of heart, but it does give them bragging rights.

“Hank Davis and Rebecca Palsha have successfully entered into the elite SourToe Cocktail Club at last!” says Hank Davis.
