: : : Friends,
: : : I need the phrase "I will drink wine from your skull before the end of this hour" translated into Latin for a war novel. Be happy to send a fiver to anyone who would email me the translation at reece@manley.net.
: : : Regards

: : Where's Bruce Kahl now that we need him?

You can send that fiver to the Red Cross, OK?

Below is your translation _BUT_ I highly recommend your visiting the link below as your phrase contained a future tense--"I WILL drink"--as opposed to the present tense and I am not 100% sure I am correct on my translation tense-wise.

Here ya go:
Vinum ex tui caputem bibarant priusquam desinum haec horam.
