Make no bones about it, life is a struggle. From navigating the daily rat race, to raising a family, to trying to watch TV while enjoying a frosty brew from a giant mug. Every time you take a sip, the other side of the mug usually blocks your view, but not with the brilliantly engineered TV Beer Mug.
Only the truest The Next Generation fans likely know that Isolinear Chips are the 24th century's equivalent of the USB flash drives we carry around today. On the show, they utilise futuristic optical storage techniques which haven't been invented yet, so these non-functional replicas will best serve as drink coasters — as well as being a truly impressive signifier of your Trek fandom.
Drinking from a canteen's spout is fine when you're just rehydrating after a hike. But once camp is set up, you'll probably be drinking something other than water, and that's where this canteen from the Stable Goods Co. really shines. Flip it over, remove the bottom and suddenly you've got a wide-mouthed pint glass.
It can't compete with GoPro's offerings when it comes to image quality, but the Polaroid Cube action cam can do one thing well. The tiny form factor makes it easier to stick it wherever you need to capture your extreme activities — or a night of bar crawling with this new shot glass accessory.
The immense popularity of Starbucks means that every other person you see on the street is holding one of its highly recognisable green and white paper cups. So what better way could there be to hide a can of beer in plain sight than with this special plastic lid that lets you camouflage it inside a coffee cup?
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.
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. I've even done some research into why we keep eating these things (the colours might trick our brains into tasting flavours that aren't there). Now you can jump on the bandwagon while tying one on now, and we got an expert to show us how its done.
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.
Oak and alcohol go hand in hand. Vineyards regularly use it to enhance the flavour of their wine, and distilleries put their whiskeys in oak barrels to provide the booze with that coveted vanilla note. But imparting all that flavour can take years, and the longer alcohol ages in the barrel the more expensive it gets.
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.
