Shake it - it has to have small bubbles - pour some in the lid and light it - it must have a blue flame. While it may be good I know when to stop so is NOT going to happen! Dull, throbbing headache is more likely to happen

I thought you all might like a little story. A friend was coming in from a hard run. She reached into the garage fridge where she kept bottles of water. Grabbed one and gulped and nearly fell down. She'd forgotten that the last time she went "home" she'd brought back a bottle of 'shine. In the same type bottle she kept water in for her runs.

I have a French friend who makes cherries in Everclear. I've used vodka and other forms of alcohol, but cannot get the same effect. This is a freind from my teenaged years. Her mother still puts aside a jar when she makes them, for me.

does anyone know of a use for alcohol, as an ingredient of course, in which a flavor is released because it is alcohol soluable? besides tomatoes.

are other nightshade veggies similar?

I am not 100% sure, but I think shrimp may be one of those things like tomatoes BT. Also vanilla beans. I know there are others, but off the top of my head I am not coming up with any.

Grey Goose

GB whenever I see vodka, I think of Grey Goose. Grey Goose reminds me that is the one you suggested and said you liked. I go to the store and behind the counter as to the fact the manager told me sometimes it just seems to 'walk away'. Holidays are coming so good reason to buy some again. GB are you still drinking Grey Goose or did you find something else?
Thanks for informing me of how good this vodka is. No sting just so smooth.

I do still drink Grey Goose, but I also enjoy a number of others. Belvedere is a very good one and I will also drink Kettle One if GG is not available. There are many many others that are great too. Ask you local liquor store to show you what they have in stock for Ultra Premium Vodkas. You will find a lot of them that you will probably enjoy as much as GG.

I guess when I poach bug tails in champagne and then make a sauce out of the poaching liquid, the sauce is flavoured by the bugs. Haven't tried it with other types of seafood.

As a stab in the dark, maybe beetroot as that permeates most things it comes into contact with. If you stick citrus rind into alcohol, it taints a little. As do strawberries.

Ok, now you did it. I'm going to have to research this question.

I think peppers might be another one.
