In this episode of "We'll Drink / Eat It!", a friend gave us a TSA-sized sample of Puerto Rican moonshine for us to swill before we started the long weekend. Here's what our shine runner had to say about what we were about to taste:
Made in Puerto Rico by a cousin I've never met, acquired from the trunk of my brother's car and smuggled through customs by me. Apparently it's made of sugar cane and some fruits. I think raisins were mentioned, but I couldn't distinguish any other from the sludge at the bottom of the brown jug it came in. Prior to filtering, it had more of a stringy texture, so I'm guessing there might have been some mango in there too.
OK! Sounds great!
Some of the testimonials:
"It doesn't make me want to kill myself (like the Chinese stuff)."
"Apple-y with a leather shoe-like finish."
"I see a fingernail in there."
"It's giving me the vapors."

Remember kids, send us something and we’ll drink it!
