Abstract: There's nothing quite like fake alcohol to turn a sweet night sour. The practice of pawning off cheap liquors or even toxic mixtures as brand-name drinks is so widespread in China, fake bottles and instructions on how to reseal them were once listed on Taobao. And it's not just liquor – police have also seized large quantities of phony beer and wine in the past. Feeling queasy yet? Wait, there's more.
