When a group of people in the distance calls me over to have some alcohol, I can't think of any times I've turned that down.  Strangers or not, I mean, it's free booze.  Today it was friends, and I'm glad I wandered over.

They wanted me to try Infuse Lemon Vodka.  Right away I noticed there were lemon peels in the bottle.  I've had a few boozes from the shelf over the years that had some form of fruit in them, but it's not the most common thing, at least not in the area I call home.  I've seen it more from friends who made their own booze, and added various things for the authentic flavor kick.

After my tasting event, I stopped and grabbed a bottle on my way home.  It was $18.99 for a 750ml bottle, and I also noticed a grapefruit and cinnamon apple variety hanging out on the shelf too.  So far I have only had it on the rocks, which it needs a minute to mellow as it's a little strong right out of the bottle.  The taste, well, it's lemon.  There is for sure a small edge of alcohol, but it doesn't taste cheap.  It tastes to me more like a $30.00 bottle of vodka that someone quite properly added lemon to.  The label says it's Eureka Lemons.

Infuse Lemon Vodka suggests making a martini with it, and I could see that being quite the refreshing summer drink.  I would imagine adding it to some lemonade would be quite nice as well.  It's a gluten free vodka running at 80 proof, that's worth a try for the price point.

Burger Toppings - Other Than Lettuce + Tomato

The hamburger is probably one of America's favorite foods. And while you can eat them plain, most people add toppings to theirs to make them even more delicious. Besides the condiments (i.e. ketchup, mustard, maybe mayonnaise and barbecue sauce), the standard toppings usually include some combination of cheese, lettuce, tomato, pickle, and onion. Those standard toppings represent the majority of burgers that get made and eaten. However, some people look for other toppings to take their burgers "over-the-top". Read on for some ideas you might not have thought of before.
