The holiday season is here. You must be prepared for an abundance of family time, rude comments from grandma, and duets with your little sister (as well as the annoyed glances from anyone in close proximity). Part of growing up means you get to get wasted during family time, so master these recipes, share with the family, and have a holly, jolly Christmas.   1. Fire and Ice 1 oz Rumple Minze. 1 oz FireBall. You’ll probably make a follow up sound similar to those in minty gum commercials.    Read More
Thanksgiving is upon us, and while your mother is obsessing over the green bean casserole and complaining that the stuffing didn’t come “just right”, you’re mentally preparing for the day.

But why not spice up your Thanksgiving this year (no pun intended) with some simple and quick pumpkin-themed treats that are sure to be crowd pleasers.Read More
Looking for a new beverage to keep you and your family members just a little bit warmer over this Holiday weekend? Look no further than the latest edition to Crown Royal’s line of whiskeys – Crown Royal Regal Apple. I was able to give this exciting new whiskey a try last weekend, and it will definitely be a staple of my liquor cabinet this winter. Crown Royal Regal Apple is fantastic on its own – whether as a shot or on the rocks – but I found that it isRead More
Unless you’re under 21 years of age or planning on spending your Halloweekend with a Ouija board in a graveyard, the odds are good that the only spirits you’ll be around are those of the alcoholic variety. Let’s be honest – Halloween isn’t your average night, especially when it falls on a Friday. So why drink ordinary beverages for the occasion? Well, you shouldn’t! Fortunately, Captain Morgan has teamed up with Vermont’s Owl’s Brew – the first company to brew tea exclusively for use in cocktails – to create some trulyRead More
There’s nothing like a nice cocktail after a long day. There are hundreds of cocktail recipes out there, classics like Cosmos and Old Fashioneds, and then more obscure cocktails, like the ones below. Let’s be honest, not everyone keeps bitters on hand. We’re not all born bartenders. These cocktails are more practical, more convenient. Here are the essential cocktail recipes for everyday life. The Bad Day What You’ll Need: Vodka, anger, a desperate desire to numb it all. Directions: Pour vodka directly into your throat. Wince. Ask yourself if youRead More
In this generation, dinner dates are very rare now unless you are in a relationship with the person. But, for those who are still firm believers in ’em, join the club. I recently went on a date that was complete crap – all because of what the person was eating. He ordered large wings with tons of sauce and extra ranch on the side. As he bit into the wing, the sauce was in the corner of his mouth and on his upper lip.  He was sucking and licking hisRead More
National Rum day is coming up on Saturday, August 16th (that’s this Saturday!), and I for one could not be more grateful. I mean, what better way to stew in denial that the summer’s almost over, than by day-drinking my go-to summertime liquor, amirite? Thankfully Captain Morgan has come through in the clutch with their new White Rum. It’s slightly sweet with a hint of fruit, and its light and crisp flavor is perfect for your National Rum Day celebration, whether it be poolside, lakeside, or backyard-side. Okay, so now thatRead More
Bananas are typically a gentle, mellow fruit.  The shell of their sweet meat is a harbinger of peace and tranquility.  Generally harmless, these fruits can exhibit passive signs of aggressiveness (should they be provoked) that, if not taken seriously, could lead to major repercussions for our diet as human beings.  Here are some things to avoid:   1. Separating it from its bunch Bananas are a pack fruit, they hang out in family groups–much like the Brady bunch.  In fact, a group of wild bananas is referred to as aRead More
Young adults are becoming baseball fans, or at least going to more games. Why? Well, a recent study in the Washington Post makes note of a rise in craft beer options at ballparks. In stadiums like Great American Ballpark in Cincinnati, or Safeco Field in Seattle, “the market has exploded.” Since 2011, more young people have attended games and craft sales have gone up with them. In response, Cincinnati has installed dozens of additional craft beer taps. Meanwhile, Seattle, known for being a hip, new age kind of place, hasRead More
From: srm5082@gmail.com To: care@seamless.com Subject: Re: Confirmed! Randy’s Chinese Food received your order. Estimated delivery: 45-60 minutes. [12:11 a.m.] To Whom It May Concern— Please cancel this order. When I placed it mere moments ago, the Seamless website told me there had been an error, and that I should start from the beginning and order again. Being in the famished state I am, I opted to not give Seamless another try. It’d be a waste of valuable time if I were to recreate the order only to find another errorRead More
