One government branch wants all holiday alcohol sales banned, but another is luring tourists to the country to drink a few Siam Sunrays – made with “hazardous substances”.

The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) on Friday had a formal introduction of the new alcoholic drink, which it hopes will do for Thailand what the Manhattan did for New York – whatever that was.

The TAT introduced a drink that it calls Siam Sunrays, and by fiat of the TAT, it is now the official signature cocktail of Thailand and “gives the Thai tourism and hospitality industries a much-needed boost.”
