Your mention of freezing wine triggered a deja vu moment: Back when I was a young lad living in Alaska, my friends and I would go on snowmobile or cross country ski trips for a weekend. We found that if you bought something cheap (like Boone's Farm) you could pour it in a pan, leave it out over night, then pour off the flavored alcohol and get a pretty good hangover. Practical application of cold distillation
A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, navigate a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly.

On a related note: The Mrs. and I have made a couple batches of homemade wine in the last year or so. Turned out wonderful.
The Beer Prayer - Our lager, which art in barrels, hallowed be thy drink. Thy will be drunk, I will be drunk, at home as it is in the tavern. Give us this day our foamy head, and forgive us our spillage as we forgive those who spill against us. And lead us not to incarceration, but deliver us from hangovers. For thine is the beer, the bitter and the lager, for ever and ever. Barmen.
actually normally I have the wine to help me nod off.

- tried spirits: coz of plane dehydrating too easy to overdo - no fun on landing: collect bags, customs etc.
