I haven't tried it b4, but I've heard awesome things. But, too much will make your throat burn or something.

Heard some people smoking SB Margarita and put some margaritas in the base and it tasted really good. Hehe I hope I get to try that one of these days

I heard it also can make you drunk faster. But, you sober up much quicker compared to drinking the alcohol.

In college i tried rum and vodka, did not find it to do anything or even add flavor, but with something like baileys would def in part a mint flavor or caramel or chocolate, depending on what you have since baileys si flavored with syrup anyways.

I am not so sure of making you drunk, I mean you are not vaporizing the booze, a good way to test to see if it does, is measure an exact amount into your base, then measure when you are done and see if a substantial amount of liquid is missing, then one knows they are absorbing the alcohol.

I's say that putting liquor in the base is a waste of good liquor. I am also not sure it's safe given that vaporized alcohol combined with the CO you get from the coals can really be dangerous or so i've heard. A couple of years ago so stupid kid in Santa Fe wound up out cold from do it (according to the local media) and his parents went crazy on some big effort to ban shisha.

And then add some ice.

OUZO

Its a Greek liquor. It is an anise flavored booze with a slightly oily texture. Heres the brand I like.




Its the only type of booze I have thrown a shot worth of into the vase.... it really makes some 2xA's have a nice kick to them.

You can use Sambuca to the same effect. Basically the same thing....just made in or from Italian recipes.

The main flavor in both ouzo and arak is anise (licorice). They're very similar to French pastis and absinthe. The herbal exxences are dissolved in the alcohol. When water is added, the exxences are driven out of solution and the drink turns cloudy. That is called the louche

Bacardi (insert flavor here) works WONDERS...Literally! So far I've tried Bacardi Peach w/ white peach shisha, Bacardi Watermelon w/ Tropical Fruit shisha, and a few others that I can't seem to remember right now... It's definetly a treat, try it. My advice is to put one shot of Bacardi and fill the rest with water. This has always been the perfect amount for my tastes.

I used some cheap So-Chu and Smirnoff Vodka. The Vodka works really well, but I wouldn't recommend the so-chu; its distinct flavor kinda messes with the overall taste, not in a bad way, just strange. Like the creepy dude that stares at you while you practice ballet in your kitchen. Nude.

I've had that arak stuff. Basically it's an anise flavoured cream liquor from middle east that mix with 2 parts water and one part arak before putting in ice. It's excellent stuff but not exactly easy to get outside of the Arab world or Turkey.

I have tried wine one time! Wasn't to bad, but I was clueless when I did it, I think I smoked Mango with wine in the base!? lol

I will try something else in the future, that will better suit the flavor of the shisha ..
