    Tavern owner says he'll unveil 100-proof turkey

    NEW YORK – You'll need to be 21 to take a bite out of this Thanksgiving turkey. New York City tavern owner Paul Hurley said he'll unveil what he is calling the nation's first 100-proof turkey on Monday. A spokesman for the owner of O'Casey's Tavern in Midtown Manhattan said that the bird is infused with fruit-flavored and 100-proof Georgi vodka for three days before being cooked. The flavors of vodka include peach, raspberry, cherry and apple.

    The gravy is also laced with the distilled liquor..............

    That is a pretty cool idea. I wonder how drunk you would get after eating it all

    100 proff. pssh. What they should do is infuse that Turkey with some Everclear.
    That would be interesting.

    Now, I could be wrong, but doesn't Alcohol evaporate at 78.3 degrees Celsius, or 172.94 degrees Farenheight.
    For a Turkey to be fully cooked, it should have an internal temperature of 180 degrees farenheight.
    That would mean that a good portion of the alcohol content will be evaporated away, leaving just the taste (not that vodka has much taste at all) behind.



    I think I'll stick with my vodka watermelons.
    Far more effecient.

    Yep. You correct. But maybe the alcohol will make it really juicy and tender.


    Personally, I don't think there is intelligent life on other planets. Why should other planets be any different from this one?
