Ingredients:8 oz Taos New Mexico Chili Honey (it's really sort of a thick paste
of honey and dried red chilis -- you could probably make your own
in a pinch)
3 lb regular honey
1 gal water
champagne yeast
Preparation:Boil up the two honeys together with the water for about 10 minutes.
Let it cool to about 100degF, and add the yeast (you may want to dissolve
the yeast before stirring it into the honey-water). Put it in a big
glass jug and slap an air-lock on it (which you can buy at any home-
brewing store). Let it sit and ferment until it's crystal-clear. Might
take a couple months. Then bottle, age and drink! Aging is optional,
if you're impatient... ;) I added an extra pinch of dried habanero,
for extra kick... *whew!*
