    I've only been on the forum for a little over 3 years and I certainly don't want to belittle anyone, but...
    During this time there have been some unusual request for recipes and/or reports of wines people are interested in making. Some, to my personal interest seem a bit out there, perhaps some were written after a few too many glasses of wine, or not. Before you think I judge other's ideas too much, I will admit to having tried and enjoyed Garlic Ice cream from Gilroy, CA garlic capital of the world. (And I got enjoy it for several hours - burp!) :re

    In any case it got me to thinking - We need a little humor in our lives from time to time. Perhaps this idea will bomb like one of Johnny Carsons bad jokes but, life goes on.

    So here's couple the popped into my mind. (Did I mention I thrive on Farside cartoons)
    Add any you can come up with or have heard suggested by someone.

    Garlic Wine - Full bodied with not less than 25 medium bulbs per gallon. ABV - to suit yourself go high, go low.
    Very useful as that last glass before leaving for home. May cover your consumption level if stopped by an officer who askes you to roll down your window.
    Also useful for ending that bad date quickly. Break it out once you reach that point where you realize that person is from another planet and it ain't Venus.
    In a pinch can be used with the next wine to top off that healthy salad

    Leek Wine - The fresh aroma of Leeks perks up the taste buds (Or annilates them) after a dull entre.' You will need at least 5 large bunches of fresh leeks rinsed and chopped per gallon. May be also enhanced with a few cloves of garlic. After the bottle is about half-empty, add salt, pepper, and oil and you have the perfect salad dressing for those facing a very boring evening with the in-laws.
    This one perhaps could spawn some creativity for labels as well. Leeky Wine Bottles.

    Garlic Wine . . . did that once. Not again. House smelled liked the county land fill for two weeks while fermenting.
