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. A boy can dream.

Anyway, if you do live someplace where it is legal or have a license, Instructables … Read more

Top Shelf Ice for Top Shelf Booze

Not happy with the old ice tray? Ice melts too quickly and dilutes your drink?

Never fear, the Taisan Ice Mold makes 30 – 40 Spherical ice balls each hour.

Why a sphere? A sphere minimizes surface area and therefore minimizes the amount of melting going on.

This equals cold booze that isn’t watered down. A must have for any upscale cocktail lounge.

Revolution – Las Vegas

Revolution is my favorite club in Vegas. It is intimate, Beatles retro sheik and located right in the heart of the Mirage. Since we were staying at the Mirage, the location is ideal, just a short stumble to the room elevators!

I liked Revolution so much that I went twice. My last night in Vegas was a party hosted by PINK Vodka at Revolution. What a great bunch of folks.

The club has a casual … Read more

Thank God it’s Friday! Dr. Dre is in the liquor biz and it is about time. Dre has partnered with Drinks Americas, of Trump Vodka fame, to produce a line of spirits and mixers.

First out of the gate will be Dr. Dre Cognac, straight out of Compton. Kidding, actually it is a fine cognac from France. Plans are in the works for a tequila and vodka 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

Beer Drinkers? Bigger Brains!

A study conducted by Gottingen University in Germany shows that the hippocampus shrinks less for drinkers of beer than wine or the hard stuff:

The groundbreaking study shows that the hippocampus, the part of the brain involved in memory, spatial tasks and many other functions, was more than 10 per cent smaller in those whose tipple was wine than in those who favored beer.

Key Chain Breathalizer

Just for St. Patrick’s Day, CrunchGear reviewed this Key Chain Breathalizer that can be had for under $5 bucks. It even comes with a flashlight and stopwatch! Doug tested it and it works, even beat the penny trick. Still, he felt it is more of a toy, but for $5 who cares.
