I’d take a slug from this

Via Wired, I present to you the coolest thing to come from Russia since the back-flip hatchet throw: Kalashnikov Vodka.

And yes, it’s endorsed by Kalashnikov himself, who apparently had an Alfred Nobel moment, except, y’know, with booze. He explains thusly on the vodka’s website:

“I’ve always thought — and still think — that weapons should serve to promote peace between countries. What I’m doing now is promoting this vodka, to strengthen peace and friendship between peoples.”

Hell, I’ll drink to that.

P.S. Taking a pull from the bottle should be called “The Hemingway Maneuver.”

    I had a bottle of this stuff one time. It was actually pretty damned good. I think I might still have the bottle somewhere.

    We should have an alcoholic weapon party.

    Last year, I had more than a few shots from a bottle of tequila shaped like an artillery round. Here are some more: http://www.boxvox.net/2009/06/gunshaped-bottles.html
