Anyone know how to make this stuff? I know it has everclear in it but not sure what else or how to make it. If you're from NODAK you might know about this drink.

I've got a recipe from a guy in ND that has berries (any kind), sugar, and some other boozes in it and it all ferments for some time is that what you're looking for? There's no everclear in the recipe though.

Is this also known as Sugarbrine? (pernounced SOOgarbrine).

It's everclear and burnt sugar, purified water, 60-40 mix. My friends in Strasburg/Linton showed me how to make it years ago and I ALWAYS have a bottle of it in the freezer.

It's called wedding punch too.

Oh yes... Redeye. Commonly served at North Dakota wedding receptions. smile

Everclear, Sugar, Water, and I've always seen it with Cherry flavoring. No surprise that NDSU has the recipe on their HSOforum. grin

Hope everyone has a cab ride home! wink

My ND contacts are experts. They have been using the Root Beer and other flavored potions available for sno cones to adulterate theirs. The Root Beer gets my vote for 2nd place (over the non-flavored)...

Is this the same Redeye that the guy in the Tom Cruise movie Cocktail drinks religiously?

Do you just use the mix then; no extra sugar, etc?

I believe when I had it, they called it burnt sugar whiskey.
