Veuve Clicquot Origami??

vorigami1.jpg

What we have here is Clicq’up Origami Ice Bucket by Mathias van de Walle. The whole idea is pretty damn cool. The only I problem I have is that Veuve Clicquot has ran it course, at least with me. Every brunch or dinner someone wants to order a damn bottle. Don’t get me wrong its tasty, but I’m over it. Now I’m on the quest to find another overpriced bottle of champagne to fulfill my inner smugness.

Would You Drink Alcohol Packaged Like This?

jorn4

Created by the artist Jorn from Düsseldorf, these bottle have a new spin to them. At first I was skeptical then realized I could drop one of these and it wouldn’t shatter. But they do seem a bit cumbersome, outside of that they’re actually pretty dope.

Drink Of The Night: Coconut Lemon Cake Cocktail

Coconut Lemon Cake Cocktail

When I read the ingredients I was drawn to say the least. UV Cake Vodka more than likely tastes sweet as hell, but my intrigue grows and now I must find a willing soul to drink this with. Call it girly or whatever you want, but that drink looks good. Maybe its the picture that has me captivated, or the fact that its alcohol staring me in the face, who knows.

Want the ingredients? Yes, you do.

A Hot Dog IN Your Beer?

  • 1.5 oz gin (or any spirit you have)
  • 1.5 oz frank consommé
  • 3 dashes Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 oz beer to top
  • hot dog spear (for garnish)

Add all but the beer to a shaker with ice, shake to chill and strain into a Collins glass over fresh ice. Top with beer and garnish with a hot dog spear that has been cooked or not. It doesn’t matter.

Note: To make the frank consommé, cook several hot dogs in boiling water. Reserve the water.

Try this at your own risk. Looks nasty to me, unless you top it off with a bun or mustard….

Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Honey

It’s Jack Daniel’s No. 7 mixed with a honey liqueur. Are you enticed yet? I’m not. Supposedly, the mix creates a sweeter and smoother flavor. Am I getting warmer? You know you what to buy it now. The drink still maintains to be 70-proof. So, yes, it’ll get you intoxicated. With all that said, you might as well go ahead and buy it. Tell me how it tastes since I won’t be going near that stuff. Jameson all day.

Priced at $22 for a 750 ml bottle.

Louis XIII Cognac

On March 12th Remy Martin will liberate this incredibly expensive cognac in Singapore at DFS Group’s Master of Spirits event. Back in 1938, a series of decanters were used during royal dinners with King George VI and Queen Elizabeth, and they were each numbered, this one is 718. Supposedly, this costs $50,000.

Jack Daniel’s ‘Ready to Drink’


I still think Jack Daniel’s is gross even with a ‘Ready To Drink’ status. If someone tries this please let me know, so I can still dislike it.

Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey announces the release of its new Tennessee Whiskey-based ready-to-drink beverages in the United States. Scheduled to hit shelves in March in most U.S. markets, the perfectly mixed beverages offer consumers a convenient way to enjoy the legendary Jack Daniel’s Old No. 7 with some of America’s favorite mixers.”

“The Tennessee Whiskey-based beverages will contain 5% abv and be available in both Jack & Cola and Jack & Ginger flavors in early March, with Jack & Diet Cola arriving in late March. All varieties are available in four-packs of 12-ounce recyclable aluminum bottles with four-packs of 12-ounce recyclable cans available in select states. The suggested retail price for the four-pack is $9.99.

The Jack Daniel’s offerings will be the first ready-to-drink beverages in an aluminum bottle. The single-serving packaging features the iconic Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey label at the center of a sleek, black aluminum bottle, perfect for keeping the smooth whiskey pairings chilled.

“With the launch of Tennessee Whiskey-based ready-to-drink beverages in the United States, we look forward to providing our customers with a refreshing, convenient way to enjoy their favorite Jack Daniel’s mixed drinks on more occasions,” said Joseph Carvajal, U.S. Marketing Manager for Jack Daniel’s Family of Brands.

The distinct, flavorful taste of Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey is crafted using a unique charcoal mellowing process during which whiskey slowly passes, drop by drop, through hard maple charcoal and matured in new handcrafted, white oak barrels. The whiskey is then added to popular mixers for a convenient way to enjoy some of America’s favorite Jack Daniel’s drinks.

Absolut Goes Wild

Just when you thought Absolut couldn’t come up with anymore bat-shit concoctions, they prove us wrong. Absolut launches Wild Tea, its infused with the flavors of tea, elderflower, red apples and citrus. Absolut recommends using it in a Gimlet with lime juice and simple syrup, in a Cosmopolitan with cranberry juice and orange liqueur, or in a Mojito with lime juice, simple syrup, muddled mint leaves and a splash of soda.

This all sounds gross.
