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.

Technicolor Margaritas: Now Rainbow Food Can Get You Drunk Too

Rainbow coloured food is, for some reason or another, becoming a trend. It’s in our lattes. It’s in our bagels. Even our pizza isn’t safe.

This Ice Ball Cocktail Is The Coolest Thing

Video: 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 solid until it’s hammered open to release the liquid goodness. It all works perfectly because the former ice sphere that held the drink transforms into the perfect rocks for the drink.

How To Make Boozy Ice Cream For Friends Tonight (The Best Ice Cream)

Booze and ice cream. Two of humanity’s greatest inventions, so why not combine them? As I discovered on a weekend trip to San Antonio recently, you can, and it’s magical. And while boozy ice cream is typically made with gelatin, if you’re willing to put in a little extra leg work, yours can be 100 per cent vegetarian.
