Cocaine Liqueur

While cocaine is still illegal, coca leaf is fair game for inclusion in food and beverages once the cocaine alkaloid has been removed. Seizing the opportunity to make coca leaf a way of life, the makers of Agwa de Bolivia created this 60-proof electric-green liqueur, whose main ingredients are coca leaf, guarana, and ginseng. These, along with 36 other herbs and botanicals, are added to a neutral grain spirit along with water, lime juice concentrate, and fruit sugars.

But how could coca-leaf harvesting be safe, you ask? According to the Agwa de Bolivia web site, “the finest handpicked wild Bolivian Coca leaves are shipped to Amsterdam under armed guard where they are first de-cocainised before being turned into this energizing elixir.”
