i DID however try peach schnapps [no water] with JM peach shisha..slightly more peachy taste which was nice, but there was also this other weird flavoring, not alcohol, not shisha flavoring. like photolinger said, it was slightly harsh [not burned shisha] and something weird, but not quite a buzz....

considering the price of alcohol, i'd rather NOT leave it to live the rest of its sad life in a hookah base and i'd rather have it down the hatch. plus it could get sticky and annoying to stick with cold or iced water [and NEVER milk, yech def not worth the cleanup]

ps - watch out for bubbly and frothy juices...sigh @ 10+ minutes of cleaning time for a full scrubdown
