There were a few that we crossed off weeks ago but haven’t been able to post about due to exams, celebrations and most importantly, much deserved holidays!
So we successfully brewed our own alcohol, true DIY style, with some true DIY consequences.
Personally, being renowned for my concoctions of home-brewed vodka flavours, took the lead on this one coming up with the seemingly genius idea to create Percy Pig Vodka.
Percy Pigs, being mine, and almost every other sane person in the world’s weakness seemed like the best tantalising bet. We, of course, too did the conventional skittle vodka to ensure that no disaster struck.
Brewed about a month and a half in advance the liquors were ready to be sampled at the delight of my guests at my end of uni farewell BBQ, which Sarah obviously co-hosted!
All being overly fed and half-cut by time Sarah and I actually remembered about them, the only way to consume them was of course by shots and mutual sipping. The ‘sharing is caring’ motto was largely in place here.
I must say, despite being as always the skittle vodka was successful… Mr Percy Pig, however, was less delightful. Although it wasn’t that bad, it was sooo strong and awfully thick, almost like my favourite childhood medicine calpol! (it may be that we used Smirnoff vodka for the skittles and only had Asda basics vodka for Percys).
But we are students; we drink all sorts of rare mixtures, brews and blends, so needless to say it was consumed without complaints! We also found on later inspection that Percy Vodka wasn’t all that bad with lemonade!
