    One of them was probably the MSP

    The other was probably their mum, who signed it just to make them happy...

    I thought that was the very definition of nescafe?

    Kopi Lumak! Very expensive and I don't usually drink coffee. They waited until the second mouthful to tell me where it came from.

    There's no cat at the start of the definition for nescafe...

    There's quite a few foods that have kind of a gross origin when you think about it, I mean look at eggs

    I trust you made them wear it, then ...

    I've tried it, it's the coffee equivalent to that dishwater known as "earl grey blend" tea.

    Come to Poland. We basically put cucumbers in water (with some extras) and let them rot for a while.

    And it's absolutely delicious (especially combined with alcoholic potato juice).

    You may have all the potato juice.
    I'll stay by alcoholic grain juice myself.

    You can make vodka from grain as well ... You don't HAVE to use potatoes. I'm sure they used something else before Potatoes were introduced to Europe from the Americas. I've got a friends whose uncle makes his own honey based spirit. It's not a "mead" (alcohol is up around 60-70% ). Goes down very smoothly, though. Her Husband can't drink spirits, though (straight to his head. He can drink beer all night, but give him a single cider or vodka and he'll fall over).

    Never underestimate the ingenuity of peasants when it comes to making hooch. :D

    In fact, assume that they're making hooch. Or at least beer.

    Speaking of, do the Russians make any beer decent enough to export?

    I drink some Russian Imperial Ales, but I don't think they're imported, I think they're domestic and it's just how they're brewed.

    Yup, I know. You could make booze of anything, they say, including one's old socks... The simplest basic moonshine receipe here does include onlu water, sugar and yeast for the brew, then of course distilling the result. I mean, I could rig up an apparatus for it using a water kettle on my stove, a few meters of garden hose and a bucket of water for a heat sink... though I guess I'd better have to invest in a good thermometer and read some books to not kill anyone with the resulting spirit.

    But around here, "vodka" it is either potatoes, or grain-based (rye, primairly. In Russia nad especially in Ukraine, they make it of wheat, too. I have a bottle of that stuff in my freezer: I can see why someone could like it, but it is simply not my taste). And for all that is good and beautiful, I can't stand gorram potato vodka. Smells and tastes like something that would be used in hospital, for dissinfection.
    IMHO what being the only proper way to use it!

    The honey liquore you mention - yeah, sounds like your friend is making her own take at Krupnik (unless she's fermenting the thing out of honey and then distilling it - which would make it a distilled mead, I guess...)

    A friend of mine recently returned from an extended time in Korea and Vietnam, and when we visited we had this Korean rice wine called Makgeoli that we really enjoyed. She learned how to make it and will teach me soon, can't wait.

    I'm not 100% sure, but I may have seen a crude, 8ft mock-up of Michael Jackson in his Thriller outfit in someone's garden on the way to work this morning.
    And when I say "crude" I mean it could have been Al Jolson in a Thriller outfit.
