Well, I DO have dried corn, plenty of fresh water, firewood, an advanced understanding of chemistry and an assortment of large pots. All I really need is malted barley and yeast and time. Amazon sells the first two and God knows I have plenty of the latter.

Not alcohol... well, actually it is, just very low alcohol %, but I've been drinking a ton of Kombucha lately. The jury is out on its health benefits, though I've been a lifelong believer in fermented foods and probiotics in general. Even if there are no benefits, I just think it's delicious. I generally just go for the original ginger kind, not any of the fancy flavored varieties.

Quite sweet and fruity with a very mellow finish. I'm also drinking White Claw. I'd frankly rather be drinking beer, but beer has a ****ton of calories and I'm trying to get back into shape. The struggle is real.

Drinking a Dark and Stormy, I'm quite enjoying it, though the ice is melting quite fast, the dilution on the end made it quite alot less tasty. I really enjoy the spicy kick that ginger beer brings!

I made a Bourbon spiked Dr Pepper (sorry not sorry, root beer) float.

This reminds me of c0cktail I used to love when I was young, called "Titanic". Take a pint of beer, preferably stout or porter, but works with any really, and drop a shot glass onto its surface to float. Then fill it with vodka until it sinks. :biggrin:

A little twist on a highball. Highball glass, rocks, whiskey (Mitcher's Bourbon because that's what I have on hand), black cherry White Claw, and a dash of cherry bitters. 

I'm pleased as Punch

Screwball whiskey with coconut and chocolate milk.  Kind of like an alcoholic Reese's peanut butter mixed with Mounds.  a little sweet for my taste, but it's still damned good!

It's a bit embarrassing, but there were about 300 bottles of Trinidad TDL shipped to Sweden, and I, almost completely by myself, has consumed 2% of the entire Swedish stock of it 🤣

I am a very strictly beer guy, but recently tried some Disaronno and really loved it. Can any of you recommend other similar liqueurs I might therefore enjoy for me to try?

Up until April of this year all Vodkas were required to be odorless, flavorless and colorless. So you might as well just keep the bottle and refill it with the cheap stuff, legally you should be able to tell the difference.


I'd say the answer to that question is kind of like the answer to "who's the sucker in this poker game?"*

I think it's mostly grain vodka though it can be made out of a lot of different things. I personally think potato vodka has more character to it but prefer grain when making mixed drinks because it's more neutral.

Grain vodkas are definitely more common than potato vodkas. If you were to walk into a liquor store and grab a bottle of vodka blindly there's roughly a 80% chance that it will be a grain vodka.

I Googled the Chopin, and color me surprised, but there is a rye and wheat version. I thought all vodka came from potatos!

Never had Absolut? =P

I never even heard of official potato vodka before. There's potato moonshine obviously but even then grain 'shiners in my parts used to look down on tater 'shiners for being cheapskate philistines of booze...or so I heard.

I have, although Im not a fan of vodka, especially straight like shots or martinis. But recently my neighbor turned me on to Tito's (brand of vodka) and lemonade and Ill drink that all day. :lol:

For some reason I just had it in my head that vodka came from potatos.

The Vodquila was an interesting experiment, and worked quite well with a dash of proper ginger beer....
