In honor of this hallowed day, I present Kwame Topaka, the Boozeman of Akatempo. Deep in the Aburi Jungle he makes a brew called Akapeshi. It’s a mixture of high-proof cane sugar alcohol and palm wine. It’s milky white in color, sweet to the taste and goddamn potent. The locals call it “Sugar Gin,” and  2 liters costs 2 cedi (about $1.25). I bought a bottle, although I may not finish it tonight I’m going to give it an honest effort. Will I end up in a Ghanaian holding cell? Perhaps even insane or blind? Not sure, but either way HAPPY EFF’in St. Patrick’s day everybody!
