Here’s the classic science experiment of mixing fire and alcohol in a large empty jug. It’s always fun to see the perfect layer of flames slowly dance its way down the cylinder, like a slow drip of fire as the alcoholic vapors combust. Of course, the best part is that ‘whoosh’ sound it makes.
Jagerbombs are awful and gross and taste like medicine and don’t really deserve to exist after you grow up. Explosions are awesome and cool and need to happen more in your life as you get old (the highly controlled, non-violent, and fun sort of explosions, of course). So the logical thing to do is to turn Jagerbombs…
You can order the same drink at bars all over the world, but how much booze each order is really going to get you depends a lot on where you are.
America has a long and storied history with regulating alcohol, which has left us with a high drinking age, and a very strange requirement that all alcohol be slightly radioactive.
As many bartenders know, one of the secrets to a tastier drink is playing with fire.
I will freely admit to being one of the twentysomething wasters who will throw a cocktail in anything that isn’t a Solo cup. But if you have more style and class, you may have wondered if there’s science behind the bewildering array of glassware.
If you were at a bar with your phone in New York City during 2014, your whiskey-laced illegible tweets may have been used for important scientific research.
It’s summer. You’re hot. You’re thirsty. You surreptitiously crack open a Miller High Life tall boy in Central Park—right in front of a cop. Don’t worry. Thanks to new borough-wide policy, you probably won’t get arrested. Cheers!
I like to drink. In fact, I like to drink more than I like to move. As in, move my body. I used those exact words when canceling a gym membership once. They wouldn’t let me cancel over the phone, so when I finally went to the gym and was asked why I wanted to quit I simply said that I liked drinking more than I liked…
There is a growing body of evidence that coffee may be good for your long-term health, reducing the risk of type II diabetes, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. According to one recent meta-study, it may also lower your risk of liver damage from boozing.
Even though all cocktails should be simple, I’ll excuse a little flair for this awesome ice ball cocktail because it’s just too much fun. An ice cube sphere looks like it’s frozen with a drink inside until it’s hammered to break open the liquid goodness. It all works perfectly because the former ice sphere that held…
Time capsules can be pretty boring. But time capsule nerds like me live for those rare capsules with something really cool inside. This year we saw time capsules filled with the weird, the rare, and the surprising. One thing that so many of 2015’s time capsules had in common: Lots of booze.
We’ve entered pie season—and with that also comes the season of people telling you their secret pie crust ingredient. For most people, that secret ingredient means one thing: vodka. I know because I used to be one of them. Until I found something much, much better.
There’s none so blind as those who will not see.
Champagne is really hard to make. There are rules and regulations and specific grapes and soil requirements and is completely region specific and more that goes into each bottle that it’s impressive that even one bottle gets popped. In this video from the Science Channel, we get to see how Bollinger makes its…
Outer Space Vodka doesn’t actually come from outer space. It comes from Iowa, which is about as far as you can get from space without burrowing into the Earth’s core.
We love whiskey, we drink whiskey, we’ve seen whiskey get made. But what’s cool about this latest episode of Raw Craft with Anthony Bourdain is how we meet the people behind the alcohol we all love. It’s combining generations of knowledge with unique skills and a real passion to just make good things. Thankfully,…
People who binge drink on the weekend take more days off work, but the cost may be more than just economic.
I love space. I love whisky. So how could the attempt to combine the two go so horribly wrong? Like this. Just like this.
