Oh yeah, my grandma told me that she read somewhere that a good elixir for elders is to put a bunch of white raisins in a bottle of gin or vodka, let them soak for 7-10 days, and eat 3 raisins a day, everyday.

Sharifah, how amazing, but my mother uses this exact same mix of gin and white (golden) raisins and it has worked very well for her indeed.  I thought it might be an Ethiopian thing, but she learned of it from a Japanese woman.

Uncle Joe's Aged in Oak Straight Bourbon Wiskey (or some other aged shine), a shot a bed time was the 'rheumitis medicine' most frequently taken in our community.....

The 'soak and eat later' thing is popular with the younger hoodlums today - except they apparently use gummy-worms....

This is the first I've heard about soaked gummy worms.  Oh the things youth will come up with...

Jacksonville Sherif had trouble figuring out how the 'youths' were able to be so intoxicated when they couldn't find any open containers on their persons or in their vehicles....

A good bit of detective time went into finding out the 'how'...
