In simple terms, we take a solid block of pure ice, carve it using various ice tools into the desired shape. When finished, the last decision is to keep it as an Ice Sculpture or drill a channel through the ice from (usually) the top of the piece to an exit 50 cm away, again usually on one side or the other.
Traditionally Vodka (though it can be any alcoholic drink) is poured into the top hole of the luge. The guest or recipient will either place their mouth (not really endorsed) or a shot glass (recommended for health and hygiene issues) at the exit point, thus catching the cascading liquid.
Once caught in the shot glass, the idea is then to 'knock-back' the drink in 'one-go'. The fun-part is when the flavoured vodka warms up in the guests mouth - at that point they get the full flavour of the drink in one huge 'kick'!
Vodka Luges are not designed to 'get people drunk' (though of course, consuming a great number of shots will accomplish this task if desired).
Lots of fun and games can be had with a Vodka Luge:
- Boys against the girls
- Mothers versus fathers
- Fathers versus sons (of drinking age naturally!)
- Club versus club
- Families versus families
- Friends versus family
- Office mates versus friends
- and so on
