    Whats in Yah dong?

    well after a heavy night on the beer and spirits and one in particular drink Yah dong
    im just wondering if anyone knows what its made from and is it any good for your health as the thai's seem to think it is ,but im reserving judgment for the time being as my head and body feel like shit.
    So what do you folks know about yah dong?

    lethal stuff, drives you bonkers.
    the base is a thai spirit to which they add herbal mixtures etc for different ailments etc, they even add cobra's blood to one type. 10 bht a shot

    The herbs and resins in Yah-Dong might have some beneficial (and other) qualities, but the spirit it's dissolved in definitely hasn't.

    I am talking from experience.

    There are lots of different recipes for yah dong, if you go to a yah dong bar they'll give you a menu showing all the different types they do, the mixtures have nice colorful names like "ladyboy's friend", "strong man" and "monk's ruin".

    No doubt. All yah dong tastes the same to me, very like the kind of cheap sherry favoured by Glaswegian alcoholics.

    cheers for the links

    well we didnt get a menu but started on the left hand side of the little bar and worked our way through each one i think there were about 6 different types there last night
    the only one i remember was called something like "big tiger"or "12 tigers"
    and something about it would keep the pecker up all night i must say it did do its job in keeping things up thats for sure

    I have bought the bottle with the sticks already in it from up near Loei ( dan sai ) before and just filled it with Jamesons .

    I had a bottle of this rice whiskey which I purchased at an OTOP event - it was quite nice , eminently sippable

    Good old Rawlins, poor guy just left Pattaya and went back to work yesterday but he makes a wicked Yaa Dong, but be warned it is proper loopy juice, i have personaly witnessed a few Thai girls proper freak out on the stuff, now i ain't no believer in ghosts and all that supernatural mumbo jumbo but these girls were proper possessed to the point i was starting to get scared.

    The names do add a much needed touch of class to this beverage. I remember trying some of 'Bin Laden's love juice' on one occasion. It would have been rude not to.

    well, in Bahasa Indonesia 'Yah dong' is an expression that means, of course!
