Times are tough? Make your own whisky!

No, we're not talking making moonshine here. (That would be illegal and immoral and if you do it you are ridiculous and everyone hates you.)

But there's nothing wrong with adding wood chips to alcohol. This week's Drunk of the Week in Seattle's The Stranger contains just such a recipe. I'd like to try it, and I have oak chips and Jack Daniels barrels, but alas I don't have the time. I have heard of people oak aging cheap tequila, and filtering cheap vodka, so I don't see why it wouldn't work.

Except for horrible, horrible memories of the time some years back that I tried to make my own absinthe. Don't do that.
