"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

The first time I made this I did not have ricotta on hand. I googled how to make ricotta cheese! I was so amazed at how easy this was and it was like a kitchen science experiment! You should try it!
