It's just that when she tries a new recipe, she likes to stick to the ingredient
list as much as possible


Then I don't get why she would not be willing to get the smallest size
bottle that works.

If the reason for not drinking is some other form of aversion to alcohol
I have seen concentrated runm, bourbon and brandy flavoring in the
baking section at the better grocery stores.


I've seen that, but not for tequila


Exactly. If she's just not going to get any booze and there isn't a
flavor extract available for tequila then it's time to consider flavor
extracts that are not direct substitutes but that might serve a similar
function.

You could get some agave nectar, develop a sugar refining method that
does not take a large factory, discard the sugar, keep the by product.
it would be like molasses or golden syrup but like tequila. A vast
amount of work so impractical even though it's theoretically possible.

Or take agave nectar. Brew it into mead. Boil off the alcohol wasting
it. The result would be rather like an alcohol free tequila flavoring
extract. Waste of perfectly good mead-like-stuff but it could be done
at home in the kitchen not requiring a refinement factory. Folks will
note this sounds an aweful lot like making tequila but using the other
material flow as the product. Don't use a still - It's illegal in a
lot of states without serious licensing and the result would be
homemade tequila which she doesn't appear to want.

Why don't you buy a bottle and give her 4 oz?


I'd buy her a whole liter and help her drink it, especially if she has
big tatas. LOL

Is it the the dried hibiscus flowers/pods you get at an ethnic store in
a bag labeled "flor de jamaica"? You have to actually bring those to a
full boil briefly and then cover and let them soak to extract much of
the goodness, don't just steep in hot water like tea. And it stains
worse than red Koolaid so be careful. I bought a bottle of jamaica
juice concentrate once and it was disappointing -- it just tasted
"red". It's supposed to be sour like cranberry juice.

HTH,
Bob



You are right, it is supposed to be tart. There is a martini you can
make with agua de jamaica, lime juice, simple syrup and gin or vodka.

What everyone is trying to say is that there is no flavor substitute

for tequila Buy a bottle and save it to use for something else or

give it away.


And make sure it says, "100% agave," on the label.

They adulterate tequila? Any brands you know of?

she finally bought a 750ml bottle at BevMo for about $12 but I didn't check the
label, although the store manager said it was all natural and his best seller

thanks to everyone for all the help
