There is a myth or legend regarding my Lithuanian great-grandfather causing a small alcohol-vapor explosion when he lit up his cigarette while making some honey-based adult beverage in the kitchen.

Luckily he survived, or I wouldn't be here!

Happy New Year!

Thank you for the recipe. I am from Pottsville but moved away prior to my teenage years, therefore never had the boilo experience. I have nephews and neices who still live in the area and talk about boilo.
I look forward to trying my first boilo on thanksgiving but now that I have a recipe I am thinking of attempting your recipie.
In PA, grain alcohol is not sold in state stores, is there another alternative?


Replace all the water in the recipe with normal 80-proof vodka, including the orange juice resuspension.  By my math, that brings you very close to the 19% or so that you get with grain.  Good Luck!
