I once tried some with jelly beans in. Don't do that. It didn't improve the flavour at all.

Hey Russ! :wave:

you could distill the alcohol out of it and use it to make other stuff like vanilla extract or rocket fuel...

Look up recepie for a blue lagoon...

1 part vodka

1 part blue curaco

half part lime cord.

fill up glass with lemonade or sprite and ice...

big pub chain I know sells this in jugs, offers one with absynth and one with vodka .

Cant remember the name when spirit is changed but goes down well.
