Help me enjoy my Zubrowka!

I was gifted a bottle of Zubrowka (also known as Bison Grass vodka) by a coworker today. I'm not a big straight-vodka person, so what kind of drink can I make with this? A quick Google shows apple juice is the traditional mixer. Do the cocktail experts of Mefi have any other suggestions?

Liquor Infusions: Bloody Mary Edition

I am looking for your very best liquor infusions to make a bloody mary. I'd really like to make three different ones that are out of this world as a gift. I however do not drink bloody mary's and am wondering if some of the recipes I've read online would be good or too weird (ex. Pickle or bacon infused vodka) etc! Thanks!

What to drink?

My friends and I would like a drink we haven't tried (i.e. not a screwdriver or other widely consumed drink). We're none of us big drinkers so we each contributed stuff that's been hanging around in a cupboard unused. Here's a list of what we gathered: [more inside]

Tell me what to do with my basil-infused vodka

I have some basil-infused vodka that is ready to use, but I am having difficulty coming up with interesting cocktails to make with it. I am aware of Bloody Marys, but what other delicious beverages can and should I be making with this? Obscurity of ingredients is not an issue. Thanks!

Was it normal that I threw up from drinking Vodka?

What surprises me is that I didn't drink too much, I only drank 2 glasses. It was my first time drinking Vodka, so my question is : Is it normal that I threw up and had the spins? Does that mean that I have a very low tolerance for it? I mixed the second glass with some orange juice. Not sure if that's relevant.

Chest pains after vodka

I recently discovered that the morning after drinking vodka (I'm not getting drunk and this wasn't on an empty stomach), I get mild chest pains. I'm not looking for what to do: obviously I've stopped drinking vodka and will see a doctor ASAP. What I'd like to know is: have you experienced this and did you ever figure out the cause?

Camelbak + Vodka + ??? = Raising Money for Charity

Leaving for the Deep Creek Dunk in a few hours, and I'm looking for mixed drink recommendations to get through standing outside in the cold for 6 hours... special requirements: mixes with Grey Goose (I'm not a huge fan of it, but it was a free bottle, so mixing can overpower the vodka)... is not carbonated thusly cannot go "flat" when sitting for a few hours nor can it get "shaken up" while sloshing around inside a Camelbak for a while... tastes good cold, but doesn't taste bad when it warms up a bit... and is something I can drink through a straw all afternoon. Last year, I mixed a Bay Breeze (Vodka, Cranberry juice & Pineapple juice), so I was looking for something different. Thanks.

Stop lying - vodka isn't really tasteless/odorless...uh, right??

I've often heard the claim that vodka is required by law to be "tasteless, odorless, and colorless". Even Alton Brown, who I usually trust on these matters, makes the claim. This claim is often taken to mean that it doesn't matter what brand of vodka you buy - it's all exactly the same (Alton says this as well). How can this possibly be true? Anyone who's ever opened a bottle of vodka knows it has an obvious smell, with words like "paint thinner" describing it. Others will tell you that this just means you're buying cheap vodka, but according to the supposed law, it's all the same! Please help me get set straight. Is there a law or not? [more inside]

This is the big one, 007...

I'm holding a '007 Days of James Bond' charity fund-raiser marathon, starting this coming Sunday - all of official movies from 'Dr. No' to 'Quantum of Solace' plus a few more. So I'm looking for food/drink ideas we can put together - either 'sensible' stuff connected with the movie (sushi during 'You Only Live Twice'), silly generic ideas (' Prawn Connery') or anything you can suggest... Many thanks in advance!

Recipe incorporating preserved cumquats?

I preserved a lot of cumquats in liquor. The liquor is nice, but the cumquats themselves too are sour and bitter to eat. Is there a recipe I could use them in? I'm thinking something like a fruitcake, but I don't know how to incorporate them.

Name that cocktail!

There is only one cocktail that I really, really like. I discovered it by chance at my favorite restaurant, since sadly closed down. I can get people to make it for me but it seems like I always have to explain the recipe three times and I feel there must be a name for it. Unfortunately, I have drawn a blank when visiting cocktail websites. Please help me ID this drink! [more inside]

Can I use cheap booze for my homemade extract or will it be terrible?

I am making homemade vanilla extract for christmas presents. I was planning to use smirnoff, but money is tighter than I anticipated this month. If I use bottom shelf vodka, will it be terrible? What is the least crappy brand of bottom shelf vodka? I don't have a brita filter to purify the vodka unfortunately, but if there is another cheap way to make it better I could do that. Thanks!

Will drinking aged mint gin kill me?

Friends sent me two in-flight-sized bottles of alcohol: a bottle of "mint gin" and a bottle of vodka. They are of unknown age (probably at least the early 1970s, possibly even older) and most likely American provenance. They appear to be unopened. Can I die/suffer permanent injury from drinking them?

I wanna sell booze.

I'm curious what it would take to make and sell a bottle of booze commercially. A new tequila or vodka for instance. What would it take to have my own bottle for sale in Albertson's (etc...) nationwide. I know Sammy Hagar wanted his own tequila and now has it, and I know some guy started Skyy vodka. Now, Sammy is clearly a $$$$$-onaire, and for all I know, so was the Skyy guy before he started. Does it take a million bucks? Or can I start small for $10,000? What kind of barriers to entry are there? Legality issues? Initial production? Production scalability? Any info would be appreciated.
