Among the refreshments offered to students at Moonshine University in Louisville, Kentucky, cans of bourbon Coke stand out, first because the drink tastes like a powerful whiskey and cola and second because it's nonalcoholic. It's just a little something flavor maniac Dave Dafoe whipped up for fun.

"I want to flavor the world!" laughed Dafoe, not entirely joking as about 20 students -- ranging from veteran local bartenders to thirsty tourists -- file into a former mechanic's-garage-turned-booze-school known as the Distilled Spirits Epicenter.
