Spodee: It's a name that probably means nothing to you, but for people who are fans of Prohibition for all the right reasons, it spells a joyfully ironic return to the good (read: barely potable and almost always combustible) moonshine products that our American ancestors drank when they danced the night away under cover of darkness.

Spodee: It's a name that probably means nothing to you, but for people who are fans of Prohibition for all the right reasons, it spells a joyfully ironic return to the good (read: barely potable and almost always combustible) moonshine products that our American ancestors drank when they danced the night away under cover of darkness.

For the uninitiated, Spodee is a pseudo-classic drink that, in its most pure form, is a barely potable combination of red wine and moonshine that was drunk out of drunken necessity. Nowadays, as with most products in the era of nothing really tasting all that good, it's been reinvented by foodies with a mission and repurposed into something that could actually accompany a meal.

No need to hold your nose, folks: White Mule Farm's take on Spodee (which they're billing as wine with a kick) comes flavored with enough herbs, spices, and fruits to make it more like the dirtiest sangria you'll ever drink. Does it interfere with the spirit of the stuff? Maybe a little. In our opinion, It's akin to watering down Moxie Pop because you think the taste is weird.

But the taste is indisputable. Spodee shines, and you'll want to drink it straight, neat from the fridge, or mix it with a little coca cola. For an added bonus, try adding a shot of Fernet to the drink for a truly potent potable.
