The tiny, unknown town of Neversink, New York, has finally pried itself from under the oppressive throes of Prohibition and served its first drop of liquor for the first time since 1935. It’s about to be a problem in Neversink, New York.
After more than a century, there is now a single place in Bournville, England—a village built by the founders of Cadbury candy, and still closely tied to the company—where you can buy a goddamn drink. Not everybody is thrilled.
Up until recently, you could saddle up to any ole liquor store in New Hampshire and ask a worker what you needed to make a cocktail like the Stripper Mom, the Panty Dropper, or (your personal favorite) the Busted Rubber. Not anymore, though! Thanks to the P.C. thought and cocktail police, all of these drinks with…
As we approach Independence Day, let’s all take a moment to remember those colonials turned citizens of a new nation, who fought the British, carved out new political customs, and drank constantly.
Humanity has spent centuries seeking a Fountain of Youth, and of course the most straightforward method is simply to ask the very long-lived how they did it. This lady says: BOOZE!
The next time you find yourself dining in Dubai (as one does), consider wetting your whistle with a $150 bottle of non-alcoholic sparkling white wine, with flecks of edible 24-carat gold leaf. You see, the bubbles make the gold dance, like a very expensive snow globe.
It only took a decade, but it looks like America is perhaps finally losing its taste for revolting new varieties of flavored vodka. Guess everyone finally realized that candy corn is bad anyway; the only thing that makes it worse is combining it with vodka.
Um, this is about to be tearing up some Bloody Mary's at my next brunch (and probably also some buttholes).
In this life, we can wear many hats. E.L. James is not only a fan of dirty dirty sex writing, she's also a vino aficionado. The scandalous (?) author is launching a collection of wines inspired by Fifty Shades of Grey, and they're coming (sorry) to an Albertsons near you.
We'll drink to that!
I don't really like alcohol that much. I mean, I definitely drink it—I like a wine or a cocktail (and a cocktail and a cocktail) on a Friday afternoon—but I'm not one of those people who, say, sips a fine oaky bourbon and is all, "Oh, impudent...aspirational...cryptic...NEEDS MORE LOAM." I don't give a shit. Just…
Yeah, laugh it up now, assholes — because you're gonna be crying as soon as you find out exactly how many calories are in that 78-ounce mango tangotini.
The folks at SLO Down Wines want you to pair their Sexual Chocolate vinage with pizza, pot, and pony play. I'm listening.
First: '"Hopped-Up", because Easter, bunnies, etc. — yeah? I know it's a bit of a stretch, but fuck it; let's all get hopping drunk on Easter by consuming large quantities of Peep-infused vodka.
In a collaboration between HBO and Brewery Ommegang from New York, four beers will be released to celebrate the families on Game of Thrones. The first up is this blonde for the Lannisters (GET IT?), and the other will most likely be themed after the Starks, Baratheons, and Targaryens of
Incesteros Westeros. Perhaps…
Tending bar pretty much anywhere is an endurance exercise in patience, but, according to the New York Times's resident barkeep Rosie Schaap, women in New York sometimes still have to deal with the assholiest assholes in all the world — men, who, apparently incredulous that the person pouring their pretentious glass of…
Remember those Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board ads about how if you drink too much alcohol and end up getting raped, you should blame both own drunk ass and your friends? Well, we weren't the only ones who thought they were stupid. After numerous complaints, the PLCB has taken the ads down.
Though whiskey is usually marketed as the manliest of drinks, there's a new Jack Daniels campaign that targets the ladies. Apparently it's now okay for women to ingest hard liquor, but only if they're using it to bake cookies.
Getting liquored up is an equal-opportunity affair, but the most popular brands of booze are associated with men. Mental Floss gives biographies and backgrounds on fellas like Captain Morgan, Johnnie Walker, Jack Daniel, Jose Cuervo, Jim Beam, Charles Tanqueray and Gaspare Campari. But what about the ladies of liquor?
