*Bump*

Has anyone ever had pulque? It's a wine made of agave nectar. I'm finding that the stuff in glass bottles made of blue agave tastes better. If anyone has ever had it and knows some good cocktails to make with it, I'd like to be enlightened.

I've never had mulled wine! I'm not sure how it would go over in my family.

I'm getting so excited for the holidays and related drinks! I usually make a drink that isn't necessarily holiday-ish, except that it's red. Just a mix of vodka, peach schnapps and cranberry juice. Super girly and very delicious. However, I saw a new recipe from the LCBO that I might just try. It's white cranberry juice and raspberry vodka. Simple but it sounds really good.

I'm having some friends over for dinner and Christmas baking tonight, which gives me an excuse to indulge in my favourite winter drink: mulled wine! I love bringing a thermosful of it to picnics and beach fires and stuff. Mmm. I'm not sure if everyone makes it the same way, but my version is a bottle of cheapo dry red wine, a few cups of water, a few tablespoons of sugar, 2 or 3 cinnamon sticks, 2 or 3 cloves (one clove too many will completely ruin it!), and thinly sliced rounds of orange and lemon. I put it in the slow cooker for a couple of hours until it's all spicy and fruity and perfect. Better go check on it now...

Anyone remember the recipe for a Russian Quaalude? Vodka, Kuhlua, Bailey's and Frangelica mixed??

More importantly, favorite sites for hooch recipes, anyone??

Holy shit!

After being left untended for more than a week, this cran/pom vodka is the tits! Deliciously tart, I think I'll add a bit of simple syrup before bottling & making little cocktail suggestion slips.

OKAY! So the grapefruit ginger booze is tasty! I used Sobieski vodka since it's probably the smoothest middle of the road vodka I've found.

I've had the cranberry pom going for a few days. I figure it'll probably take longer since cranberries are quite hardy. So far it's faintly sweet & bright what with the pom seeds being so tender. Most of their colour is gone & the vodka is a faint pink.

See now, you should freeze a piece of that horchata cheescake, pack it in dry ice & mail it to me! I made a horchata/toasted almond ice cream over the summer that rocked.

Thanks, AP. I was going to make pumpkin pie martinis for the Bustie get-together this weekend, but I decided last night to switch to horchata cheesecake. But I will keep your info in mind because at some point in my life, I will need it!

The best vanilla vodka is hands down the Stoli Vanil, followed by Grey Goose. Smirnoff & Three Olives are good middle of the road purchases.

When buying liqueurs, I usually go with the DeKuyper's or Hiram Walker brands as they are pretty good quality. I always buy the white instead of the dark since most mixed drinks call for the former.

What's a respectable vanilla vodka? I don't have time to make it myself.

Is there a creme de cacao that's better than others?

Skittles hooch I am fine with. I objected to hot buttered popcorn booze, GT. Thass jus nasty.


I was researching Halloween drinks & came across a recipe that called for *kettle corn* infused gin. The Candy Corn Cocktail.

This week I am going to try my hand at infused vodka. I can't decide which way I want to go, though. Cranberry or pomegranate are seasonal, but I have a yen for grapefruit (maybe with ginger to add some warmth) or maybe even cucumber basil. A cucumber basil vodka & soda is very refreshing.

I actually just made the skittles vodka this week! It turned out really well. I have only tasted it so far, haven't mixed up any drinks, but it's really tasty while still packing a punch.

I also have some pineapple soaking in vodka, some fresh cherries soaking in vodka, and some maraschino (sp?) cherries soaking in 151. I tried one and it made my tongue tingle. I don't know if I'll be able to handle those.

My next possible experiment is to do vodka with Lemonheads candy. Might be good, right? Think it would work?

i disagree with my hunny bun, aural. skittles vodka is no worse than all the loopy flavors of mad dog 20/20. it just doesn't have street cred.

i don't know about buttered popcorn booze. what would you mix it with? that sounds a bit too jones soda for me.

How about wine? Any bustie winos in here? What bottles are you liking right now? I really like the Cremaschi Furlotti carmenere. Went to buy a bottle and accidentally bought Casillero del Diablo carmenere and liked it just as much! Cheap and tasty - under $14 here in Saskatchewan. I think the Cremaschi Furlotti is about the same. Made a really spicy veggie pasta tonight and had it with a 2008 Cono Sur pinot noir, and was surprised to find it paired really, really well. It's hard to pair reds with veggies, and I don't usually have much luck with spicy foods, either. I guess I'm into Chilean wine right now.

No, no, it fucking wouldn't be right. That is WRONG on so many levels, HT. Buttered popcorn booze? WRONG! And as a confirmed drunk, I say NO!

That Skittles vodka seems like a fun Christmas present, but they have gelatin in them... I wonder if you can do the same thing with Jelly Belly beans. Wouldn't buttered-popcorn vodka be great?

How did I not know there was a Hooch thread!!!! I know I am gettign in late on some of this conversation but...One of my favorite shots is called a wet pussy. i think it has Baileys, creem and somethign else. It's kinf of warm and nutty tasting!
Also a drink I like to make is called an Alien Secretion. It is I part fo each: vodka, pineapplejuice, malibu rum, midori melon. It's meant to be a shot, but sometime I just make a glass of it. Pretty potent! It also kind of looks like it is glowing becaus eof the midori.
