This recipe came from our good friend from Army days-Randy. He would have all our friends save their dark glass bottles from beer and wine and then make big batches of this to give to friends.
This would make a great frugal gift for the holidays. You could keep a couple of small bottles on hand for hostess gifts or last minute presents. I think they are especially attractive if you dip the head in melted wax. . . very classy.
