U.S. warns Americans of possible 'tainted' alcohol in Mexico

The State Department has warned people traveling to Mexico about tainted or substandard alcohol, and to drink responsibly after the death of a Wisconsin woman.

Its not just mexico.

In the early 90s, along with a neighbouring family and our collective five children, we went on a cheap tour to Russia for a week.
The Soviet Union had just collapsed and rampant inflation was the order of the day.

As our coach load of Brits departed Moscow Airport to the hotel, the Russian Intourist guide informed us that we would make a stop at a "privately owned" shop. It turned out to be the basement of a seedy block of flats full of gaudily painted Russian tourist stuff, wooden nesting dolls etc.
It was utterly boring and we were tired from the journey.

Suddenly there was an announcement calling all the adults into a side room, which turned out to be a bar. There were stacked bottles of cheap vodka for sale, and they were palming free samples on us.

Everybody seemed to have a glass in their hands when I entered, and although it had a rather odd smell, I was just about to avail myself of a glass when our five children entered the room.

I saw the kids suddenly freeze on the spot and sniff the air, and then to anyone in general, with their noses screwed up, they jointly started to announce, "nit lotion, nit lotion........phoey", whilst wandering through the adults trying to find the source of the smell.
The general hubbub in the room came to an abrupt halt and you could hear a pin drop, the Russian vodka sellers watched completely mystified as the crown melted away to nothing. No sales that day!

The kids looked baffled at the sudden exit of the adults, unaware that they were the cause. It gave much cause for laughter that week among the tour adults, plus a certain level of relief that the kids had sounded the alarm in time.

I have no idea what the vodka was made from, probably industrial alcohol. The odd odour that I couldn't place certainly did smell like the school nurse's nit lotion.

Disturb us Lord, when we are too pleased with ourselves. When our dreams have come true because we dreamed too little. When we arrived safely because we sailed too close to the shore. Disturb us Lord, to dare more boldly. To venture on wider seas. Where storms will show your mastery; Where, losing sight of land, we shall find the stars. We ask you to push back the horizons of our hopes; And to push into the future, in strength, courage, hope and love.                     (SIR FRANCIS DRAKE 1577)
