Infused Vodka Tasting Party #1

  • Nov 1, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Hey Sports Fans, we have another John E Cat extravaganza! Infused Vodka Tasting Party:

Please bring a bottle of vodka that has been infused with either your favorite infuser or one that you have been wanting to try. Vodka should be infused for a month!

Also, please bring an appetizer to share; post in the comment section what you will bring so we don't duplicate.

This Meetup will be held at a private residence; the address will be sent via separate correspondence for those members that will attend.

I already have fresh ginger bathing in a fifth of the finest cheap vodka around.  I think I'll bring my tasty bacon-wrapped water chestnuts.  -John E Cat

  • Johnny C

    Thanks Linda, you're awesome! Sorry we knocked your house off its foundation. I believe the tie breaking winner by applause registering 102 on the decibel meter was Norm's assorted fruit over the pomegranate and the raspberry.

    Personally I liked the Gretchen's key lime and Tim's cucumber mint best!

    Linda thank you for graciously hosting this event in your lovely home. I'm sorry we didn't get around to remodeling anything for you, but with all the vodka I think it's a good thing we didn't ~ LOL. It was great to meet you and all the other new people to the group. Very fun time and I hear that #2 is in the planning stages ;)

    Thanks Linda for hosting! I've had a situation with moving so I have realtor showings in my house all week and continues through weekend! You're awesome!

    2 · October 30, 2013

  • Johnny C

    10/29 UPDATE: Thanks for your food responses and venue ideas. We are leaning toward Linda's or Tim's (both still in P-Town). Items coming are: veggies, chips and dip (er...cowboy caviar), oysters, crackers, chili, possibly bacon wrapped nuts dessert, tiny cups, ice, 7-up, squirt, cran. juice, and diet coke. Still need paper towels, small plates?, pineapple juice, tonic water and ginger ale. I suggest bringing a few bucks to contribute to the pizza delivery fund, so we get some protein going on.

    If someone gets a price on the Waller Grange, we will be one step closer to something really big!

    1 · October 29, 2013

    • Gayle M

      Cowboy caviar has plenty of protein but black beans may not be everyone's fav :). Besides diet coke and caviar can bring 7up, Mr.T's spicy drink mix, marinated asparagus spears.....

      1 · October 30, 2013

    • Carole

      Im bringing wraps too btw.

      1 · October 30, 2013

  • Steve D.

    I called Waller Road Grange but got their answering machine; they will call me back tomorrow with price tag. You have 27 attending, so that is the number I will tell them. There might be an issue with alcohol, but SSS has a number of events there. Will let you know.

    October 29, 2013

    • Johnny C

      Thanks Steve

      1 · October 30, 2013

    • Johnny C

      I think we are ok for this event but curious about using the grange for a hundred people in a few months.

      October 30, 2013

  • Hugh S

    Believe it or not but I got a better offer for the evening. She's 5-9 & brunette with a wonderful smile. I know Infused will be great. See y'all soon.

    1 · October 29, 2013

    • Cindy

      You go Hugh! Did you have a great birthday?

      October 29, 2013

    • Hugh S

      I had a nice bday. Sunshine! Lunch w MomDad. Family party is mid-Nov for 3 of us. Fri eve will be some more celebrating.

      October 29, 2013

  • Cindy

    We'll bring an appetizer and some ginger ale, all though I will be tasting my vodka straight.

    2 · October 29, 2013

  • Johnny C

    10/28 UPDATE: We have a situation with the original venue, so please send me a message if you may be willing to contribute your house.
    I will message attendees the address on Thursday.

    We still need 1 oz. plastic cups, bag of ice, vodka mixer, other non-alcoholic beverages, and appetizers (leave a comment message on what you're bringing.)

    Finally, be prepared to only taste quantities you can handle. I want everyone to have a good, safe evening, as well as be respectful to the home we will be in.

    1 · October 28, 2013

    • Linda H.

      Well folks, I'm happy to host this event. There's just two things I should mention. First, my house is under a slight remodel. Right now the family room has no carpet and I'm laying tile on my fireplace. The kitchen is next. Second, I'm not actually attending - I'm on the waiting list. I guess I could go to my bedroom and watch reruns of Orange Is The New Black once the festivities get started. :)

      3 · October 29, 2013

    • Gayle M

      Give the girl a pass :-) Maybe we can even help remodel.. LOL

      October 29, 2013

  • Mark O

    Raspberry infused vodka & smoked oysters, crackers.

    1 · October 29, 2013

  • Adam

    This is turning in to quite the project. I have mason jars in various stages of production. Reminds me of the TV series “breaking bad”. Production distribution LOL.

    2 · October 27, 2013

  • Steve D.

    Ok, for those who don't have the time, or are novices to this infusion. Personally, I am purist - good vodka does not need to be infused; unless, of course, you like Foo Foo drinks. So go to your local Class VI, damn...sorry, liquor store. Find Pinnacle vodka, it is French and comes in a blue bottle. Pinnacle is already infused! I have in my freezer, Pinnacle Whipped (whipped cream); Chocolate and Whipped Cream and Root Beer.

    1 · October 27, 2013

    • Carole

      Exactly what I was gonna do...

      1 · October 27, 2013

  • Johnny C

    We have so many tasty vodkas coming. It should be OK for a few to come without vodka. Alternate contributions could be a few hundred 1 oz. plastic cups, bag of ice, vodka mixer, water, folding chairs, food, or bottle of vino for our wonderful hostess.

    3 · October 15, 2013

    • John

      Ok I'll bring some fireball!!!:)

      @ John B I knew I liked you for a reason...Fireball is one of my favs :-)

      October 23, 2013

    Okay now that I am on the right posting...LOL..... We need to revisit the idea of us sampling all these vodkas and driving afterwards........
