Iceland: Brennivín

Favorite souvenir: Brennivín from Iceland. It's a token Icelandic liquor in a square green bottle that's often consumed in the form of a shot after hakarl (disgusting cubes of fermented shark meat). I've had it sitting in the front of my liquor cabinet for four years now, but can't bring myself to drink it — partly because I like having that visual reminder of my time in Iceland, partly because it's knock-you-off-your-feet strong and just the thought of sipping it makes my insides curl!
