People look at me like I'm nuts when I say this,
but one of the best things you can do with those extra quarts of vodka we all have lying around the house is to drop a couple sticks of fresh horseradish root inside.
keep the horseradish in the bottle for three days, strain, store in the freezer, and serve.

If you've never tried infusing your own vodka or making vodka-based mixes, Thursday's event at the Lemon Grove in downtown youngstown may be perfect for you.
It's the one-year celebration of the Polish Youngstown group, formed to join the various Polish entities around town to promote "Kultura Polska" and such.
Flying in from New York City will be the brand manager from Żubrówka bison grass vodka to share some recipes and infusion tips.
similar to all the Polish Happy Hour events, Thursday after-work event starts at 5:30pm and will feature authentic Polish Hors’douvres, Zywiec (pronounced zhee-vee-ets) beer, acoustic live music, and door prizes.
just show up and join in.
could anything be more rust belt chic?
