Bartender one cocktail. Please...

Without the frog.

Rare frogs saved from cocktail blender
LIMA, Peru (Reuters) - Peruvian officials saved some 4,000 endangered frogs from being whizzed into popular drinks after they were found hidden in an abattoir.

"We were checking the fridges when out jumped a frog. It had escaped, they were in big crates," a spokesman for Lima city hall said on Thursday.

Frog cocktails are popular in the Andes because of their supposed aphrodisiac qualities. Shops in central Lima selling the drinks have tanks where customers can choose their frogs.
Frog Cocktails have aphrodisiac qualities? I rather use my natural charm as my aphrodisiac.
