Alas, the day has come when you can buy a product that turns regular old juice into booze. Just add a Spike Your Juice yeast mix packet to the juice of your choice, wait a day or day and voila! You have yourself a sparking alcoholic beverage. Spike Your Juice was created by a group of Europeans in California who were craving Federweißer, a seasonal drink which unfortunately cannot be shipped overseas. Check out the website and try your own version of Federweißer.
