Hardest Cocktails to Make
Some cocktails are ridiculously simple to make. A Cuba Libre (rum and Coke) is so widespread in large part because of the ease of preparing it. While these simple cocktails have their place, the increased effort involved in making more complex cocktails is usually worth it.

It's not enough to follow a recipe with these cocktails: they can only be conquered through frequent practice.

Laws About Homeschooling You Should Know
Homeschooling has been a mainstay in American education since the colonial period. Back then, home school was really the only school for children, as public schooling institutions were few and far between.

Largest Beer Companies in the World
Do you know where your beer really comes from? In the early 2000s, about a dozen breweries produced the majority of the beer in the world.

You'll recognize the names of some of these companies, like MillerCoors, but you may not realize the true reach of these behemoth brands. The largest beer companies in the world own multiple craft brewers (or, rather, former craft brewers) in addition to the massive brands you probably already recognize.
