I put this puppy together over the weekend.

The okra at the store were HUGE so I used seven pods quartered into spears. Right now my 1 liter vodka bottle is bubbling like mad, and I had to poke extra balloon holes. A few months from now after she clears, if I get enough +1s, I'll taste on camera. Thing is, if I think it came out well, will anyone believe me enough to try it?

For the record, SWMBO is more than skeptical.

You brewed it so now you have to try it. Your face on first sip will be epic.

Creamy, you ever had one of those Aloe drinks down in Central/South America? My son-in-law had me try one and it is slimy like Okra. The drink was like trying to swallow stings of slime or as my youngest son said, strings of snot or old tobacco spit.
I didn't care for the aloe drink at all but the SIL swears it was one of his favorites growing up in southern Mexico.

Funny you should ask! In another thread I mentioned that the aloe juice cocktail I have found in the grocery store here in Queens is delicious... but goes through me like a freight train. Hope this isnt the case with my Oh-kraaaaaaahhh!! mead.
