I should say that you'd probably want to dilute some beverages, one way or another.

Watch at about 4:45.

Edit:
Don't miss the "disclaimer" after the commersial (at about 6:15).

Top five brands so far:

Libertine 72 - for the low price and because it can be diluted really well | Jade (PF) 1901 - this is a winner but also quite an expensive brand (can also be well diluted though) | Duplais Balance - very tasty indeed and for quite a time my favourite | Mansinthe - which I find a little bit more "spicy" than others, but with no downsides | Valkyria - perhaps a tad too much star anise, but.. because I'm Swedish ;-)

This XX0.000 Scovilles - Naga Chilli Vodka must be some kind of "prove your manliness" vodka shot...

This stuff kinda makes me sad in a way. Such a waste of a good pepper sometimes.

Naga Peppers are awesome in curries and so long as you don't overdo them they can add a wonderful flavor.

Sure they're hot as balls but they're tasty too!

It makes me sad in a few ways.

You mean the ghost pepper? This guy seemed to really like it.


The room it smelled heavy of drinkin',  

and the sad silent song, made the hour twice as long,

as I waited for that sun to go sinkin'.
