You will pass stalls in the local markets with tanks of small live frogs on the ground and a blender on the table. For 5 soles, you can watch a frog be plucked from the tank, skinned alive by hand (gruesomely fascinating), its guts torn out, washed, then put into the blender. Other ingredients like honey, a milky liquid and something malty are added, then the whole lot is blended and strained into a glass. When I first heard about this drink, I never thought I would have the guts to try it, but it really wasn´t so bad; it was warm, sweet and malty, and a sort of greenish colour. Apparently this drink is good for your health and, well, all of us who tried it are alive and healthy so I suppose it´s true. Salud!

Intense, or not, I think I'd pass. I've never tried it and I'm still alive and somewhat healthy so I'll stay that way by staying away from it. :)
