    Thumbs up My favorite aftershave (homemade)

    What I like about this is that it's inexpensive, distinctive, subtle and not too perfumed. And hell. If you don't like it on your face just pretend it's Christmas and pour yourself a glass.

    1/4 cup amber colored rum
    8 whole cloves
    8 whole allspice berries
    1 or 2 whole bay leaves depending on size

    Combine all the ingredients together and place in an airtight container. Let stand for 2 days on a shelf or counter somewhere (not in the direct sunlight). Strain and place the liquid in a small bottle. Use after shaving.

    Although I use rum I think any amber colored spirit would do; rye or scotch whisky, bourbon, brandy etc.

    Here's a photo of the finished product

    As the world continues more crazy than cruel, he spins like a top on the end of his tool.
