cranberry clementine cider
I’m trying my hardest to enjoy hot drinks. I generally don’t reach for them or crave them, but I like to open up horizons to myself and delve into things I wouldn’t normally try. I have some other ideas I’m working on executing, but for now, I have this cranberry clementine cider. It’s great for holiday time, and has that clove warming sensation that feels perfect going down while there’s a snowstorm outside. As I’m writing this, it’s 60 degrees despite the fact that it’s January, but I have no control over global warming and can only speak from a seasonal perspective. This recipe makes enough servings for a small group of people--about 4 to 5--or a lot of servings for two people. That’s up to you. This works well hot or cold, but I surprisingly enjoyed it most straight out of the crockpot when it was finished. The recipe and instructions are straightforward, but it is time consuming. I simmered this for about 10 hours, and I know that’s a long time, but I needed to make sure I could really gauge the process correctly. I made this cider three separate times trying to get the measurements correct, and it took 10 hours to simmer each time, so it is what it is. You could probably get away with cooking this in 6 hours, possibly 5, but I wouldn’t rush it along any more than that. Just follow the visual cues I give below and you will be fine. The ingredients will tell you when it’s ready. Don’t force it though.

I don’t necessarily understand all art. I accept that I’m not meant to know or understand everything, and people laugh when I say that, but it’s true. Art that I do understand, is something I can touch or taste. I don’t get anything out of going to museums and looking at paintings or sculptures I can’t put my hands on. If I can’t actively engage with it in a way I like, I’m not interested.
First, I want to state that horniness is a sickness, and the only cure for it is death. Until we die, horniness plagues most of us in our waking and sleeping life. There is no escape. That being said, I had to try this drink. I first came across it during the summer, when the packaging was much more vulgar (looked like a sex toy). I appreciated the boldness of their gesture; insinuating that this drink was like a rocket ride to Horny Town packed neatly in a 35 calorie beverage. I don’t understand why anyone would want to get horny from a drink. I would prefer something more subtle, like a salad dressing or a drink sweetener. Something that could provide me with just a Touch of Horny. A drink seems like something to overwhelm the senses. If it worked, how long would it take to wear off?
Pep Talk Review
Caffeinated seltzers are becoming a subgenre of the fizzy sugarless variety, and I came across Pep Talk during one of my usual beverage browsing sessions online. The drinks only have three ingredients: carbonated water, natural flavor, and natural caffeine from green coffee beans. I’m always intrigued by anything that has so few ingredients, because while it’s possible to make something taste good with only a few elements, it’s definitely more difficult in certain instances. For those who don’t know, green coffee beans are just coffee beans that haven’t been roasted. Different green coffee beans have different “roasting profiles” that open up when the bean is roasted (this is when the bean turns brown). If the coffee bean remains unroasted, though, it maintains the amount of chlorogenic acid it originally carries. Please keep in mind I’m not a scientist, or a coffee expert, I just have the same google you do. Anyway, chlorogenic acid has antioxidant properties and caffeine.
Lemonade is truly one of life’s simplest pleasures. Too often, though, it comes in the form of unimaginative flavor combinations (OK strawberry lemonade, I Get It), and the drink itself ends up being imbalanced and syrupy. I love a good chain restaurant, but they have to stop just pumping strawberry syrup into plain lemonade and calling it a day. Please respect the drink.
Nilo Guanabana Review
It’s really, truly winter, and among other crushing aspects of the season, some of the best fruit is hard to find. I live in the Midwest, so if you’re in a warmer climate and have access to other seasonal options, congratulations. I envy you for that. The weather here sucks ass, and if I’m being completely honest, I would love to not experience another cold season. Realistically, there’s nothing I will do about it. I’ll bundle up in a winter coat and thick scarf every year and sigh and fantasize about other places I could be living.
Borrowing its name from a product in the novel Make Room! Make Room! by Harry Harrison, Soylent claims to be the perfect meal replacement to solve issues of food insecurity through Silicon Valley engineering. I recently rewatched the film Soylent Green (1973), and though the official soylent website claims the drink isn’t as bleak as the meal replacements offered in the film, the association is still incredibly dystopian. Soylent Green is a film set in New York City in 2022, where the poor are packed in the streets, and real food only exists for those who can afford it—the rich. While older people can vaguely remember the taste of fruit or meat, younger generations were born under depressing circumstances, and have no idea what real food tastes like. The poor subsist on an allegedly nutritious food made of soybeans and lentils, as the Greenhouse Effect has ruined the Earth and made other food unsustainable. Fueled by a series of murders and suspicious events, Detective Thorn starts investigating what looks to be a dark secret surrounding soylent green.
Seedlip boasts being the first non-alcoholic distilled spirit, taking inspiration from an old recipe book of herbal concoctions from the 1770s. They seek to quench the thirst of people who wonder “What do I drink when I’m not drinking?” and have three flavors of distilled spirits. Grove 42, Spice 94 and Garden 108 all have unique flavors and descriptions, and I went with Garden 108 for this week’s review. Garden 108 is a floral blend and includes handpicked hay and sugar snap peas, which sounded weird as hell to me. As we all know, if it sounds weird, I need to try it.
