I live in a military town so there are people from all over the world and united states. What started off as a gift to a friend...ended up becoming a huge batch for her husbands squadron party when they got home from a 10 month tour. I prefer not tasting the alcohol and that's how it is suppose to be however she wanted it at 100 proof when done. If it is too strong for you just add a little more juice, don't need to re-boil. This should be around 30-40 proof.
