Boilo is a traditional Yuletide or Holiday drink in the Coal Region of northeastern and east central Pennsylvania.
The traditional Lithuanian name is "Krupnickas."
Characteristically boilo has a standard recipe including oranges, lemons, nutmeg, cloves, caraway seed, honey, ginger ale, and anise seed. The traditional base ingredient in Boilo is moonshine but most receipes have replaced home-brewed moonshine with blended whiskey; the most common being Four Queens 100 proof blended whiskey. Other recipes can be made more specific including Honeyberry[disambiguation needed] Boilo, "Tomata" Boilo, Blueberry Boilo, and Apple Pie Boilo.
Some believe it to have curing properties for the onset of fall/winter related ailments such as a cold or influenza.
There are many boilo taste test contests held annually in the Coal Region of Pennsylvania where home brewers compete over whose recipe is most authentic and whose Boilo is the most easy drinking.
btw, my wife whose family (mother's side) is VERY lithuanian and she never heard of it.
