Chapter 95 - The Glow of a Worm inside a Child's Eye[]


New Saigon Moonshine


...is a fermented and distilled liquor derived from the Ijero fruit and the bark of the Golem bush, mixed with an aggressive local breed of hardy anaerobic organism that is similar to, but genetically completely distinct from, yeast, called "Golden Lake Yeast" this organism is resistant to the local capsaicin analogues in Kowloon's biology, and serves a distinct second function-converting the Golem Bush's toxic bark into something that won't kill you.

Alcohol percentages for bonded moonshine are between 43 and 51% alcohol by volume, or a range from 96 to 102 proof for those used to dietary alcohol ratings, and depending on percentages, the compounds from the Golem bark add a mild stimulant effect, allowing drinkers to, thanks to the refreshing if spicy nature of Ijero Fruit extract, become horribly too drunk to stand without realizing you've even got a buzz.

It's somewhat similar to having your brain smashed by a cinnamon-cherry wrapped round a large gold brick, and most of the time you don't realize you're hammered until you can't stand up without shitting yourself and falling down.
