Is that intended to be used as a drink or a solvent?

Drink But it can be used as a solvent....you shoulda heard the old timer at the liquor store when I bought it I took one little sip straight and it felt like I was drinking fire lol. It'll be much more tolerable in a week or so.

"CAUTION EXTEMELY FLAMMABLE, Handle with care"
"WARNING!! Overconsumption may endanger your health"
"Not intended for consumption unless mixed with non-alcoholic beverage"

Thats actually all in caps, and all on the bottle, but thats annoying to read.

I was never a real fan of 'murrican 'shine but when I lived in Ireland, I was really big on poitin. There's very little burn to the real stuff I'd get, but it sure would **** you up.

We've been drinking some moonshine over here lately. I took it to the lab at work and tested it (I think it was only 35% alcohol). Was a nice drink though. IMHO, that 190 **** is good for nothing unless it is all you have.

Even with the time I spent in Italy, I never did manage to develop a taste for drinking Pledge...

Now, make some rum-***** or poundcake with that 'shine, then you might have something worthwhile.

to each his own. frankly i didn't like the full strength limoncello. it probably ended up about 150 proof or more but it wasn't as tasty as it could have been. Next time I think I'll start around 100 proof. or at least dilute the everclear by half.

The recipe I'm following does cut it in half. However much grain alcohol you use, you match it with an equal amount of simple syrup (Water & sugar). When all said and done it will only be around 95 proof and sweet. I tried some my buddy made and it was awsome... granted I love lemon in general. It had a great lemon taste, it was sweet, and then you got a little punch/heat from the alcohol, but it was VERY smooth.

I used to use Graves all the time. It's great for fortifying wussy drinks. I used to make chocolate shake type drinks when I had parties. Add a shot or two of Graves for some super powah. Actually, it's great for everything. Even better than vodka for making a beer into a "super beer" for people you want to **** with and laugh at.

As for good high proof liqueurs, I had this recently:

Cspense shops at the container store...

I know this because I saw those same bottles there when I was looking for a new bottle to store the coffee infused rum I made my brother for his birthday.
