I know Tanzania isn't very tiki, but I was wondering if anybody had any good recipes, in case I get my hands on some Tanzanian moonshine...
A TANZANIAN man has died after drinking 25 sachets of a potent moonshine known as "double punch", losing a six-dollar bet with his friends that he could gulp 30 down in one sitting.
Moses Kanyange, 37, had been promised $6.09 by his partners during a drinking session if he could down 30 sachets of the brew, a pungent spirit imported from neighbouring Zambia.
"We are still investigating the issue because more than 10 people took part, but only Moses died," Isuto Mantage, a police commander from the southwestern region of Tanzania said today.
Other police sources said Kanyange was "an experienced drinker", known to be able to drink 25 half-litre bottles of beer in less than two hours, but he had already consumed too much alcohol before taking the double punch bet.

Noticed that the man actually downed Zambian moonshine, apparently a more toxic brew than the Tanzanian stuff he was accustomed to...
