    Check Out Midwest Wine Connection

    I write a column about distilled spirits for the Midwest Wine Connection, a monthly publication out of Minneapolis. You can pick it up for free at most beverage retailers in the Twin Cities metropolitan area. The current issue is also always available, in PDF format, at the wineheads.com web site. A new issue comes out about the first of every month.

    For the season, my column this month (December issue) is about punches, mostly about their history, but with some tips for making them too. Do you know what arrack is?

    I've now been doing the column for almost two years. I like the publication and like being associated with it. It's mostly about wine but they also feature articles about food, the arts, and other subjects. You might want to check it out, especially if you are into wine.

    Chuck,

    In answer to your question, "Do you know what arrack is?"

    A. A country in the middle east.

    B. A part of a womans anatomy. "Did you see what arrack she had"

    C. Something to cool fresh baked pies on.

    D. Something to do with a pool table.

    E. An un-aged distilled spirit popularized in 17th century England and conspicuously consumed by degenerates and upright citizens alike.

    F. Sweat


    Did I get it?

    Ok I cheated and read the article.

    Good job, I enjoyed it.
    When re-arranged, the letters in "whiskey" spell "key wish," those in "spirits" spell "sip it sir," and those in "moonshine" spell "in no homes."
