#4 Nick Nolte

#4, Now every One has seen this mug shot but have you seen the list of what he had to drink that night?

3 Glasses Of Brandy
Brandy is distilled from grape or fruit wine. Often other flavors are introduced during the distillation process in order to make an apple brandy or a blackberry brandy. If the flavor is introduced after the distillation process, then it is not a brandy, it is a liqueur.

1 Bottle of Vodka
Vodka is any fermented beverage which undergoes triple distillation. The triple distillation produces an extremely high alcohol content and a very pure alcohol. It is so high that it is poisoness, so it is traditionally watered down to 80 proof or so. If it is left in a higher state, it can be considered moonshine. Vodka is usually made from potatoes or corn.

# Glasses of Gin (& Tonics)
Gin is similar to vodka in that it is a triple distilled liquor. The only difference is that the 'wine' is steeped in juniper berries prior to distillation. Wine is the pre-distilled state of the liquor.

1 Jar of Moonshine
Moonshine is a liberal form of Vodka. It does not require triple distillation, but it does have to be distilled at least once. Moonshine is often made from many different types of wines.

1 Shot of Tequila
This is a Mexican beverage which is made from the blue agave plant. It is only tequila if it is made in Mexico. There are many different types of tequila, but it is usually distilled once and barrel aged.


5 Cups of Whiskey
This is one of the more artistic liquors in that there is a lot of elements that go into it. It is made form a grain wine. There is an art to exactly what types of grains are used. Then it is distilled once or twice, usually at high temperatures and barrel aged in oak for extended lengths of time.
