Geeks don’t drink harder. We drink smarter.
Remind us: who showed you an oversized martini glass that holds a drink so large, it would almost guarantee a blackout? We did. Who sang the praises of the pocket Breathalyzer that not only told you just how many sheets to the wind you were, but also just what toll it had taken on your breath? We did. Now, answer this: who’s going to show you just exactly what will get you drunker faster and cheaper?
That’s right. We’ve got this.
Glancing over our shoulders toward history, we’ve spied a road to one resourceful buzz-on. This DIY juice alcoholic drink kit will turn your juice to hooch, and turn your casa into the low-budget fiesta that never stops. Get yourself a 64-ounce bottle of the fruit juice of your choice; pour in one of the six included yeast shots; seal the airlock top and give the blend of yeast, organic evaporated cane juice and emulsifier 48 hours to turn the juice’s fructose to carbonation and alcohol. In two days’ time, you will be reveling in the bounty of your very own boozy beverage packing an up to 14% alcohol by volume kick in the head.
This is a simple but very, very old fermentation method traditionally producing what is known in Germany as “Federweisser” (“white wine”) and in Austria as “Sturm” (or “storm,” for its commonly cloudy appearance). Actually, those authentic vintages traditionally only result in 4-10% alcohol by volume – not quite the whollop this kit’s finished product could deliver! The genuine articles produced in Europe for over a century often have a flavor akin to light grape soda or sparkling wine, but by all means: toy with flavors. Age some heavy-duty hard apple cider, or try some OJ and create an electrifying orange juice that’s a little more Black & Decker power-drill than simple screwdriver.
Every DIY juice alcoholic drink kit contains six bottle labels, one airlock, one rubber stopper, recipes and six packets of simple, magical, fermenting-then-inebriating science.
