Free samples at the night market!

Walking around the night market in Luang Prabang, I heard a seller call out.... "Free samples."  The word "Free" ..... why does this capture one's attention immediately?

There the bottles all stood as the vendor called out.... and all I heard was "Free, free, free!"

"What did I just drink?" I asked myself as the white liquid set my stomach on fire.

Only after having gulped the "Lao Whiskey" did I look at the bottles set out before me.

Had I just drank a shot of "Green Viper Whiskey?"

Some kind of "Black deadly Snake?"

Or was it "Scorpion Whiskey" I drank?

Don't tell me it was "Cobra Wiskey!"
