It seems anytime I drink an Indain Pale Ale I end up in this forum :D

I quit liquor. It's weird, but a shot here and there turned into 4-5 a night over the course of a year.
Not my speed or style.
Funny, but I miss taking shots - 80 proof ethanol has a magical way of addressing any negative stimulus in a very immediate way that I found pleasing.
Alas . . . what's best for us is not always pleasing.

Drinking some homemade Kahlua, and milk.
Add 4 cups sugar, and 2 cups instant coffee to 10 cups of boiling water.
Simmer and stir occasionally for 6 min to make sure everything is dissolved. Cover, and let cool to room temp.
Add 1/5 bottle of Everclear grain alcohol, and 4 oz of real vanilla extract. Mix thoroughly.
This batch will fill one half gallon bottle, two fifth bottles, and slightly over half a pint.

Ah, I remember the days of my youth when I used to drink shots of Everclear straight from the bottle, sometimes with a chaser.
Tonight it's Lagunitas Super Cluster Ale.
I've had to curtail my alcohol escapades lately, as I find I have a strong desire to live long and prosper.

Yea, I didn't think that I needed to put a disclaimer or warning with my recipe but maybe I should have. Everclear is no joke, it is not meant to be ingested straight or with a little mixer added. You risk serious alcohol poisoning, or even death if you play around with it like that.
My Kaluha comes out around 80 - 100 proof, depending on if the everclear you get in your area is 151, or 190 proof. And while my kaluha is still serious stuff that has room for abuse, so does all alcohol, even 3.5 ABV beer. But unlike everclear, the kaluha is at a strength that if used in mixed drinks by responsible adults there is no risk of poisoning anyone.

Everclear is an amazing substance when used by 'responsible' adults.
It's great for cleaning motherboards or plugin cards.
If some spills into your soda can? Egads!
