I'm not Tom, but... it's possible to make wine from almost anything that ferments:  corn, raisins, prunes, berries, pears, apples, etc.  Dandelion wine is made from the leaves of the plant, not the flowers. 

 

(As I recall, there is an excellent book of short stories called "Dandelion Wine".  The idea is that you make the wine in the summer when the flowers grow, but you drink it in the winter...and the wine reminds of you the summer.  I can't think of the name of the author.  Rod Sterling?  Terrific book.)

 

White lightning, skull popper, blue gas, panther piss, and other names are what Americans call homemade alcohol on which no taxation is paid to the federal government.  It's illegal and sometimes dangerous to drink, of course, but it's also cheap to buy.
