El Museo Restaurante on Avenida Revolución is a restaurant, bar, and museum. The space is filled with mementos from the Agua Caliente Casino, which opened in Tijuana in the 1920s, including the Art Deco chandelier that hangs overhead. But what they also have is that jug of rattlesnake tequila.Sadly rattlesnake tequila, or tequila con vibora, starts with a live rattlesnake. The rattlesnake is put into a jar which is then filled with tequila. The snake emits something into the tequila as it dies that is said to have medicinal properties. The snake is removed, gutted, and then returned to the jar, where it sits for a few months before the tequila is served. Supposedly this medicinal tequila is good for the kidneys, arthritis, and the nerves, and even cancer. Mexico isn’t the only country that makes a spirit with snakes. China, Vietnam, and Cambodia have snake wine.As you can imagine, a shot of rattlesnake tequila is not the clearest shot you’ll drink. It’s a bit cloudy and has small pieces and parts floating around. At El Museo Restaurante it tastes surprisingly smooth and, well, it didn’t kill me.
