Bittersweet Nightshade

Looks luscious but...
"The STEM of bittersweet nightshade might be safe for most adults. But, the LEAVES or BERRIES are UNSAFE, and are very poisonous. Symptoms of poisoning include: scratchy throat, headache, dizziness, enlarged eye pupils, trouble speaking, low body temperature, vomiting, diarrhea, bleeding in the stomach or intestines, convulsions, slowed blood circulation and breathing, and even death. ."
Sounds like the opposite of fun with this berry. Your shot does glow, though.
