Homemade Gin Kit

Mommy, where does gin come from? Vodka, Bobby. Gin comes from vodka. At least if it's homemade. Shunning expensive, and possibly illegal, distilling equipment, the Homemade Gin Kit allows those who possess it to create intoxicatingly delicious juniper juice in small batches for gifts (yeah right) or personal consumption (hell yeah). It all begins with a bottle of vodka. And it doesn't even have to be a particularly fancy one!

Skyy, Absolut, probably even Gordon's will do as a start. Once you've decided, acquire thyself a Homemade Gin Kit, and follow the enclosed instructions for infusing your odorless, tasteless, clear base with the kit's aromatic blend of juniper berries, spices, botanicals, and flowers. Whoa, did you know there were so many girly things in gin? Maybe that's why I like it so much. It's like inhaling the scent of a woman, and getting pleasantly drunk as a result.

According to the Homemade Gin Kit's creators, "You will be stunned with the finished product." Stunned? That's a strong word. It typically takes 950,000 volts of blue lightning to stun me, but OK, HGK enthusiasts. I'll give it a go. Each kit contains enough glassware and herbal goodness for 2 bottles of homemade gin. One for me, one for...me again!
