Author Notes: Potent compounds in the wasabi paste inflame your nostrils, and, when rapidly imbibed, the ice slurry induces a brain freeze by chilling the capillaries in your sinuses. These two effects combine to numb the lower brow, and release your third eye from its cage of flesh.
(recipe very loosely adapted from Bon Appetite's strawberry-soy milk shake)
