I get the inclination to scoff and deny, but it's looking like yes, in fact, this is being done (mixing bootlegged booze in with the 'real' stuff) it's been done in many countries over the years, it's nothing new.

Seems the danger is maybe the stuff is stronger, therefore 6 shots = more like ten or twelve (plus over-pouring and over-serving)- is that not possible with unregulated alcohol?
To me, that makes no sense. It would be much easier, and cheaper to simply water the booze down. Now that I have heard of.

Why would establishments want to make booze "stronger"? What's their reasoning? They don't have enough vomit to clean up, and want more? To take advantage of the drunkin tourist? How sinister. Oooh, just like the TV shows, right?.
