I just went into my local little liquor store and asked the clerk for 100 proof vodka, he showed me three bottles, I bought one, I think it was Ketel One but that could be from a deflating memory

40% by volume = 80 proof.

Just use a little less water, since the Stoly is not 100 proof.

I love Lemoncello and it is stored safely in the back of the fridge. In the freezer we have Van Gogh's double espresso vodka, Jose Quervo tropical tequila and a bottle of Ketel one- I remember a time when we used to keep frozen veggies in the freezer but, that was before the kids left for college!!!!
Love and energy, Vicki

This sounds good to me; never had it before, but I'm always interested in a new drink.
