My friends all know that if I could just drink my food, I would, and often do. I much prefer drinking to eating and am constantly finding new favorites. My current favorite is a lemon loaf Tazo tea with a bit of stevia and heavy cream. It's delightful, but I do recommend two teabags. My favorite cocktail is much simpler--just some pineapple juice with vodka in it. It's popular in Spain, where I taught for a semester, and I've always carried it with me, although I'll try almost any cocktail once.

If you haven't watched Iliza Schlesinger's bit about mermaids, you must; you'll die laughing. Then you can skip being a mermaid and just buy these mermaid tail cocktail glasses instead. The wine glasses are actually glasses within glasses, as you can see, because setting your mermaid tail in an upright position from which to drink would be super awkward and likely spill.
If you've ever remarked that there should be a cocktail machine similar to your Keurig for brewing up drinks instead of coffee, tea or cocoa, you're in luck. The Drinkworks Home Bar is now at your service, offering a range of beers and cocktails for all of your single-serve needs. If you're wondering whether or not each pod is totally comprehensive, containing every ingredient for the cocktail of your choice... the answer is yes! Everything is pre-measured, with premium ingredients in each pot. Want a margarita? Pop the pod in.
All too often, the recipe for a beloved drink just doesn't do it justice. Maybe the restaurant where you have the drink has better top shelf liquor than you have at home, or maybe the ingredients are swayed just a teeny bit toward the secretive realm where you just can't make out what that lovely flavor is. That's what's so great about A Beautiful Mess: those stylish entrepreneurs know how to make a cocktail and they 're frequently sharing their secrets with us!
Many areas hope to increase tourism in order to generate more revenue, but not Venice. Venice has plenty of tourists. Venice has so many tourists, in fact, that they are thinking about banning booze just to get rid of them. The problem, it should be noted, is not tourism itself, but the rowdy drunk tourists who act like fools in the streets and disrupt everybody's daily life.
Do you serve your sake warm or chilled? Which wine do you drink with fish, red or white? Many of the drinking rules that we follow are based not in reality but in myth, making many of us drink "the wrong way" throughout our entire lives. Although if you enjoy something, is there truly a "wrong" way to like it?
Have you ever enjoyed blue curacao? The liqueur is pretty much the orange standard with blue coloring, but it's making a quick comeback right now as popular chefs and mixologists like Torrence Swain employ it in new drinks. When mixed with the right flavors, it can create a tropical taste sensation that will whisk you away toward paradise, no plane tickets required!
Whether you need to run by and pick up the wine and spirits you need for this weekend or want to have them shipped to your home, Total Wine and More can help you out. The liquor store features free parking, an Instacart option, a cool growler station where you can get yours filled and a cigar humidor.
Since the age of 16, I've kept and added to a bucket list of over 600 items. I've completed about 2/3 of the list but it keeps growing! One of the things I've never tried to complete was "Drink wine older than me." Sounds pretty fun, right? I thought I might look into that so I started looking up a few bottles from my birth year.
Ever heard of the Duck Fart? It's the unofficial state drink of Alaska! While state drinks don't have the seal of approval that, say, state flowers and birds have, they are still a fun way to explore different states. Some people check off states by capitals, others by famous features, but if you enjoy drinking, how about using the state drinks guide as your bucket list?
