that reminds me of the best party drink i've ever had:
you take a bunch of lemons and squeeze them into a tea jar. you add some sugar, about half a fifth of vodka, and
a fifth of everclear
throw some ice in there (and maybe some water), wrap a towel around it, and pass it around the party--everyone shakes until their arms are tired.
this stuff is interesting: the first sip you take you're not sure if you want to spit it back out or not, but then the second sip is better, and by the time you've downed a glass it's the greatest stuff on earth. It also has the uncanny effect of making everyone bubbly and happy and there's no hangover.
i forget what it's called, but 'nectar of the gods' isn't a bad name...
