it's worth experimenting with timing to see what works best for you--and then dilute one to one with water. You can even try making your own gin or cocktail bitters. While it says this on the bottle, and should be pretty obvious, it is well worth repeating: absolutely do not drink this extremely high proof spirit without dilution. It's not macho or fun. It's painful and potentially dangerous. Seriously.
Rarity at its best. Many of the popular liqueurs and cordials on the market are simulated in this book. Most are identical in alcohol, water and sugar content and virtually identical in flavor. Liqueurs and cordials are simple to make; and it is fun to produce them at this quality and caliber that many think to be out of their league.
