Put some pepper in there. That should even it out.

Actually, saving it for cooking and making something really tasty out of it would be a funny way of thumbing your nose at your swmbo's "revenge"

Another vote here for using it to cook with, and telling us the story on how you tapped that ass.

distill it, the salt would be left behind after the alcohol and water evaporate

probably would loose some other flavors but would be a cool experiment if you had access to the equipment :P

I'm at a loss, and I know I shouldn't even ask, but... what exactly is that flavor?

I guess it's probably the burning ring of fire!

another vote for saving it for cooking and for the rest of the story!

As has been said before, if you bottle, you probably wont be able to carb, but what does that matter if your just cooking with it?
