A Recipe For Your Hangover Michelada That's Impossible To Screw Up

It’s Sunday morning. Probably. You’re disoriented and the inside of your mouth has been replaced by arse-flavoured shellac. The full weight of last night will soon come rushing back to you, and you need enough hair of the dog to qualify as taxidermy in order to steel yourself against the impending nausea.


This Secret Underground Beer Fridge Is What Dreams Are Made Of

We’ve all dreamed about the perfect beer / beverage fridge at some stage, though a general lack of inventive engineering skills is usually the deciding factor between imagination and reality. That can’t stop you from appreciating the efforts of others, like this secret underground cooler from Peter Götting.


How To Turn Agave Into Tequila

There’s no alcohol that makes me forget the night as much as tequila, and there’s also no alcohol I know less about. Which is fitting, I guess. What makes it special is the blue agave plant. Here’s a quick look at what it takes to make tequila. From harvesting and cutting out the core of the blue agave plant (which looks like something from Super Mario Bros.) to baking it and extracting the juice and letting it ferment, it’s a delicious-looking process.


A Smoke Bomb Ice Cocktail Seems Almost Too Dangerous To Drink

Video: If there’s smoke… you should drink it? Cocktail Chemistry shows how you can make an ice ball full of smoke for your cocktails that once you crack open, will unleash the smoke monster. The effect is really cool, like the spirit gods are anointing your drink as worthy.


Short Animation Shows How Beer Is Destructively Necessary (NSFW)

Directed by Nerdo, this short animation interprets the poem about beer from Charles Bukowski and it’s so dark and bitingly true and totally spot on about the dependency that someone could have on beer (or wine or whiskey or whatever). We get in the mind of a man who has accepted what alcohol has done to him but feels the need to keep on going.


Look How Fire Gracefully Slides And Dances Down This Bottle

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.


A Jagerbomb That Explodes When You Drop In The Shot Is A Much More Awesome Drink

Video: Jagerbombs are awful, gross, taste like medicine and don’t really deserve to exist after you grow up. Explosions are awesome, 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).


Bloody Mary Secrets That Will Change Your Life

There’s nothing quite like sipping a spiked meal in a glass. So when Few, one of my favourite distilleries, offered to send me something called “Breakfast Gin”, I got a bright idea. Why not whip up a batch of refreshing Bloody Marys?


This Anti-Aging Gin Is A Great Excuse For A Terrible Pun

At some point in the future we’ll all be downing rejuvenation pills to stave off the swing of a certain, sharp farming implement. Until then, we’ll have to rely on overpriced moisturisers, demonic deals with Mark Sheppard and this gin, called “Anti-aGin”.


Yes, All American Alcohol Has To Be Radioactive

Video: America has a long and storied history with regulating alcohol, which has left them with a high drinking age and a very strange requirement that all alcohol be slightly radioactive.
