NEW YORK (AP) - You'll need to be 21 to take a bite out of this Thanksgiving turkey.

New York City tavern owner Paul Hurley said he'll unveil what he is calling the nation's first 100-proof turkey on Monday. A spokesman for the owner of O'Casey's Tavern in Midtown Manhattan said that the bird is infused with fruit-flavored and 100-proof Georgi vodka for three days before being cooked.

Surprised his oven didn't blow. Can't be 100 proof after hanging around for a while then cooking; alcohol evaporates doesn't it?
