Homemade Cointreau?

DIY Liqueur: Cointreau. I've finally run through the bottle left by a fellow MeFite. How do I make a rough approximation? I've searched around a little, and the "recipes" all involve stringing and hanging oranges. Why that technique? [more inside]

Can pepsi-can alcohol stoves release dangerous vapors?

I've been cooking in the backcountry for years with a pepsi-can stove (it simply provides an aerated vessel in which to ignite 75% - 99% isopropyl alcohol which you pour into it)...now recently I've noticed a distinctive, not exactly pleasant smell at the very end, when the fuel finally runs out and the flame extinguishes itself...perhaps a residual vapor is released at that point (I'm usually done cooking). SO, my question is, are dangerous gases perhaps being released? I'm wary of course of getting aluminum in my bloodstream and catching Alzheimer's, but any other dangers I should know about?

Cheap drunk vs. blood alcohol level

Ok I admit it, I’m a cheap drunk, a lightweight. One beer, one glass of wine, and I’m feeling good. Any more than that, even another half a beer or half a glass of wine, and I’m starting to get buzzed. So I’ve always been very careful with my drinking. I’ve never been stopped for suspected DUI, and don’t plan to be. That said, I’m curious about whether my blood alcohol level actually increases more quickly than most people, or do I just feel the effects of the alcohol more quickly without my blood alcohol level rising very much. IOW, over a period of an hour, you drink two beers, you’re not drunk, and your blood alcohol level is below the legal limit. I drink two beers in an hour, I’m pretty buzzed, enough that I would not drive. Is my blood alcohol level probably over the legal limit? If it matters, I’m a fairly normal-sized adult female, 5’5”, 120 lbs.

Aged coffee syrup, anyone?

Is our bottle of Kahlua still good? We opened it four years ago (on St. Patrick's Day, actually) and promptly forgot about it. It's sat on a high shelf at a fairly constant temperature. It's about 80 percent full. It still smells OK. Wasn't going to taste it without input from the hive.

Wet House

My cousin is a lifelong alcoholic. Other than staying with friends, he is homeless. He has limited contact with the family and every attempt at sobriety has failed. He has a long history of arrests and jail time, all of which involve alcohol and alcohol-related offenses (shoplifting, public drinking and intoxication, et cetera). I need to find a wet house in either the Los Angeles or Phoenix area. No recommendations for AA or sobriety programs, please. It has been tried and he does not want that help.

i'm 25 i swear!

YANML: I'm 25 years and 30 days old. I'm at a bar crawl in Pittsburgh. I just got denied entry to a bar on Carson St because my Ohio license is expired by 30 days. What is the Pennsylvania law for a bar regarding alcohol service for a 25 year old with an expired ID? I.E. how can I avoid getting blocked for the rest of the evening? Things to consider: Grace period for expired license, possessing multiple credit cards in my name (to verify identity) and obviously over the age of 21 based on physical appearance.

Sweet Shots

As a hobby, my friends and I create alcoholic-infused cupcakes inspired by cocktails and shots. Friends, family members and relative strangers have been egging us on to start selling them. We've been reluctant to do so, for all the obvious reasons, but now we're considering a very, very small-scale word-of-mouth/online ordering business. What do we need to know in order to avoid getting sued, fined, or going bankrupt? [more inside]

Please Recommend a Detox Retreat

I’m 35, male, and live in San Diego. I’m hoping to find a retreat (or something similar) that is not too far away, not too expensive (maybe $2,000-$3,000), and that starts as soon as possible. I have recently gone through a lot of unpleasant life changes, and have been drinking too much, too often, and for too long. My primary issue may be with alcohol, but I want to try this before I try outpatient treatment. I’m hoping to find a retreat where I can recharge and also break my drinking habit. Ideally, it would include some combination of yoga, meditation, and counseling or something directed to my drinking habit. Thanks.

Please recommend a therapist

I'm looking for recommendations for a gay/gay-friendly therapist in the Northern Virginia area who has experience with alcohol abuse and alcoholism. I'm attending AA meetings to help with the continuing sobriety, but I really think I would benefit from some additional therapy. Thank you. (The gay/gay-friendly is in there because I don't want any chance of homophobia or blaming my problems on being gay)
