I can buy delicious flvored rum; theyhave coconut, mango, and I think pineapple.
I did tequila (cheap, I won't use good tequila for anything but sipping) and sun dried tomatoes. It was very nice. It took a long time though.

Now that is a seriously intriguing combination. I will have to try this! Not with my Casa Nobel Anejo though.

I make cherry bounce--I have a sour cherry tree. I fill a half gallon jar about half full of cherries (washed, but not pitted), add a cup of sugar, and fill the jug with bourbon. Put it somewhere dark for 4 months, then strain and bottle. Makes the BEST grownup pink lemonade.

Definitely NOT! Do some cheap silver. It was nice. Not fabulous but nice.
If you are a purist (and I know you are!) try sipping a tumbler of the good stuff while snacking on grape tomatoes.

I make a wonderful blackberry cordial... berries, 100 proof vodka, sugar and lots of time! It's soooo good!!!

I've also made blueberry/huckleberry! Good but not as good as the blackberry.

I'll have to have a few shots tonight. YUMMY!

I tried some cheep Spiced Rum with Red Hots .. I used WAY TOO MUCH!! (100g of Red Hots to 750ml bottle) It came out like liquid Red Hots with not much rum flavor. Kinda like cinnamon Cold/Cough Syrup.

Yeah, the sugar from the candy probably made it syrupy.

I want to try making a pink peppercorn or possibly a habanero vodka.

A few days ago I dropped about 1/2 oz of cinnamon sticks in Captain Morgans .. and for something different I also did the same in Old Crow. I can't wait to try them out this summer.
