So a good friend of mine is hosting a viking themed party in November (very early planning, I know). He knows that I'm beginning to get into mead and asked if I would make a few batches for the party.

That gives me about 3-4 months. I already have a 'Joe's Quick Grape' going and will be doing a 'JAOM' in the next couple days. Do you guys know any other mead recipes that would be good to drink by November?

November eh? Still a bit too late IMO.

I'd just get a gallon of cheap vodka, mix honey into it, to taste, and maybe add a clove and a half stick of cinnamon.

The sooner the better, as it gives the spice favours time to extract......

Serve in small glasses and tell them its mead...... they won't know the difference:

Oh, and here's some blog stuff!

The recipes you are using are the best bets for being drinkable by November.

Just serve the stuff in drinking horns and folks will have a blast.
