Drink 25 Cups Of Coffee A Day!

Another example of modern studies proving nothing, a recent report maintains that 25 cups of coffee isn't bad for your heart because it doesn't stiffen arteries. Look, I love coffee. It's one of my top 5 favorite things. But if I even drink half that much I can attest to how damaging it is on me just on that same day! Between the anxiety, hyperactivity and general heart palpitations, it's scary business.

Irish Drinks

St. Patrick's Day is quickly approaching, and while many of us already have delicious favorite drinks we're looking forward to enjoying, there's always something new to mix up and try. For example, have you ever thought to mix a Bailey's Mint Martini? Adding some Creme de Menthe to Bailey's is so simple, yet I've never even considered the idea. Now I want one right now!

Signature Drink of 2019

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.

Very Vanilla

I don't know why people use "vanilla" to describe boring things. It's my all-time temptress flavor. I'll succumb to vanilla Oreos far sooner than the chocolate ones, and don't even get me started on Nilla Wafers! Did you know that there's a martini mde with Nilla Wafers? It's really just amaretto and vanilla vodka, but could you imagine lining your glass with wafter crumbs? Mmmm... It supposedly tastes just like Nilla Wafers.

The Grossest Yet Most Delicious Cocktails

Gravy fat and turkey stock in a cocktail? Gin with celery syrup and cilantro? Ugh, I can't stand cilantro (the soap herb!) and I didn't even know there was a such thing as celery syrup. These surprise ingredients are supposedly the makers of exquisite cocktails that only sound weird and gross and terrible but are actually amazing and enjoyable.
