I couldn't throw away the empty bottle of Dan Aykroyd's Crystal Head vodka, so I inserted an inexpensive string of Micro LED lights and Viola, instant Mystikal Crystal Skull!

Actually, how was the stuff? I was thinking of getting some. I stopped by BevMo earlier and saw they had it. The 1.75 liter bottle is $90, the 750ml one $45, and they have cute little 50ml ones for ten bucks. The large one is the best value but I'm wary of getting it if the stuff is no good. Probably should have bought the little one and tried it out.

Oh yeah, they also had this...

It tastes okay but just average.

But in my opinion Tito's is the best.

I stopped and picked some up on the way home today. Got the gift set with the big one and the two Martini glasses. Figured that would make a cooler oil lamp than one of the smaller bottles. Actually thinking about modifying that person's idea and finding some kind of tube which would fit in the opening into which I can put some lamp oil and a wick. It would mean refilling the fuel more often but then I can fill the rest of the bottle with colored water or candy corns or something.

Anyone have any favorite drinks I can mix the vodka into? Never been much of a vodka drinker. Besides Bloody Marys, of course. I make a mean BM. I guess I could make some vodka martinis since I have the glasses. "Shaken, not stirred" as that English guy used to say.

I bought a bottle before last Halloween but have been saving it for something special. Perhaps the upcoming evacuation of the parasite that has been living in my wife's uterus for the past 9 months. The LEDs look great as do the candles. I bought one of these which looked awesome in the dark

As for drinks I do drink vodka martinis(stirred not shaken). As for other vodkas I've never tried Tito's I've always been a fan of Belvedere.

Vodka is one of my fav's, I like Vodka and orange juice, a friend of mine made some jungle juice with it, and it was awesome too. I love the decanters.

Hey Witchy, you ever try some of dat Pinnacle whipped cream flavored vodka with orange soda? Tastes just like one of them orange creamsicles. Also good with root beer, tastes somewhat like a root beer float.

That all sounds like a vicious hangover.

So much sugar...
