They even contribute what they think to be "magical powers" to the liquor, so don't be surprised to see animal paws, bones, whole snakes, and scorpions inside the liquor bottles. Get memorabilia at one of the many small souvenir stores, or bring home a bottle or two of the villagers' specialty drink.
