|The crazy water recipe
was given to me by Xavier and Diego, two exchange students from Mexico, when
I lived in Coughlan House at MUN in Newfoundland in the late 90's. We had some good
parties with a full batch of it, and it's fun to make. I will warn
in advance that although it doesn't taste strong, one large cup equals
about four bottles of Canadian beer in alcohol content. Yes, I know you can drink more than everyone else, and so on... but don't consume
too much too quickly or you will hurt yourself. I am not encouraging binge drinking and take no responsibility
for anyone making a trip to the hospital.
Two other notes: first,
you can make a half or double batch depending on how much you need. One
batch is enough for about thirty people. Second, don't drink the crazy
water immediately after making it as it will smell unpleasant. It needs to sit for a
few hours to mellow.
