An absolutely foul shot: Made from an egg yolk and Bailey's Irish Cream Liqueur, commonly served in a double shot glass. Meant to represent an embryo and semen that would be used to make a Homunculus in Alchemy.
Ten seconds after my man Dave downed the homunculus, he chundered all over the carpet.

a tiny fully formed individual that (according to the discredited theory of preformation) is supposed to be present in the sperm cell

Hippocrates and Aristotle proposed the idea of what they called pangenes, which they thought were tiny pieces of body parts. They thought that pangenes came together to make up the homunculus, a tiny pre-formed human that people thought grew into a baby. In the 1600s, the development of the microscope brought the discovery of eggs and sperm. Antonie van Leeuwenhoek, using a primitive microscope, thought he saw the homunculus curled up in a sperm cell. His followers believed that the homunculus was in the sperm, the father “planted his seed,” and the mother just incubated and nourished the homunculus so it grew into a baby. On the other hand, Regnier de Graaf and his followers thought that they saw the homunculus in the egg, and the presence of semen just somehow stimulated its growth. In the 1800s, a very novel, “radical” idea arose: both parents contribute to the new baby, but people (even Darwin, as he proposed his theory) still believed that these contributions were in the form of pangenes.

A homunculus is 1st and for most forbidden so do not try it. Most people who try to resurrect any a human and/or create a homunculus lose parts of themselves in order to feed/make/give to said homunculus. They are made by putting certain elements together using alchemy. The maker of one is taken into waking unconsciousness where they learn all their is to learn about everything. When the awake from this state they remember everything that happened but they come back missing some part of them selfs arm/leg/intestine etc. The human they were trying to resurrect looks deformed beyond human knowledge and stays in that form for an unknown amount of time until they take the form of a human but alway have a heightened ability or a ability that is not human in anyway
Homunculus are alchemy's biggest taboo and is forbidden by all alchemist
