Purple Drank, the Anti-Energy Drink

Drink makers are capitalizing on the the underground phenomenon, Purple Drank, with this anti-energy drink. It’s not the drink containing promethazine-codeine.

This Drank is a grape flavored concoction with a touch of with melatonin, valerian root and rose hips. I have absolutely no idea what these things are or what they do, but the creator says they calm folks down.

They say it works, especially when mixed with vodka. With the tag line “slow your … Read more

See the mayhem set to “Dancing Queen” by ABBA. Why not?

How to Build a Still (A Legal One, Duh)

It is illegal to distill spirits in the US with out a commercial license. So we don’t recommend trying this at home. Still, how cool would it be to make your own vodka, whiskey or just about anything you can think of right in your own backyard. Way more impressive that your homebrewing neighbor? So 1990s.

States Consider Lower Drinking Age

Seven States are considering lowering the drinking age. Proponents in Kentucky, Missouri, Minnesota, South Carolina, South Dakota, Wisconsin and Vermont feel that if young men & women can serve in Iraq, they should be able to have a drink as well.

Rattle Snake Vodka

An interesting article I recently wrote up for Dethroner:

Forget the worm, this bottle of vodka has a 10 inch rattler stewing. Earlier this week Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission agents seized 411 bottles of Rattle Snake infused vodka at Bayou Bob’s Brazos River Rattlesnake Ranch in Texas. Apparently, Bob didn’t have a license to sell booze. Oops.

TABC officials said alcohol-containing snakes and scorpions are popular in Asian cultures. An Internet search found operations selling
