Awwww that looks super good. Now I want to bottle mine. I need to go through my clean empty bottles and see if I have enough.

Ok I can take some pics. Actually I still have it bulk aging. It is crystal clear and looking great. Last a tastes it was months ago and it was great then. When I get home I will chill a wine glass and siphon enough to take a pic or two.

Ok here are some pics as I promised. On the left is a skeeter pee wine that is over a year old and on the right is my skeeter mead. The third pick is also skeeter mead.

I was surprised the one with lighter color was the skeeter mead. I tasted the two side by side and wow the mead is so much better. But then again this last batch of skeeter pee was back sweetened with Splenda mostly. I tried to use some prong sugar and carb the wine but fermentation never kicked in. Also I was a bit low on the Splenda. So the skeeter pee is a bit more tart and has a bitter after tone. The skeeter mead is sweet and sour like you expect a lemonade. There is a lot less alcohol hot tastes in it compared to the wine. Soooo gooood!

Ok I ended up bottling. I bottled most of the skeeter pee then I had 36fl oz of "just tart cherry juice" in a gallon jar and I racked the S.M. Onto it till full. That then went into it's own bottles. So I have S.M. And Cherry S.M. Bottled. I calculate the cherry to be just over 7% ABV and OMG is it good!!!!! Here are some picks:
