Hey!!  We still make dandelion wine in our bathtub.  And, once in a while we make some white lightening in the basement.

 

Actually, it's legal to make wine and beer at home.  It has to be for self consumption and can't be sold.

 

I like the word "introduction" for formal use when talking about taking liquor onto a site where it's prohibited.  It's a good legal word.  The introduction of spirits to teenagers is forbidden. 

 

I do remember years ago visiting bars in Texas where they sold beer but not hard liquor.  If you wanted to have whiskey, rum or something like that it had to be taken in by the customer and it had to be in a brown paper bag or a handbag so it could not be seen.  It was legal to pour the stuff in your glass and to mix it with your coke or spritzer but you could not have the bottle out in plain sight. 

 

Right now we are having an election in the country next to us.  They are having a mail-in referendum on whether or not to sell alcoholic beverages in restaurants.  Wine and beer are already okay......it's the hard stuff that is against the law.
