    Wine Here, There, and Everywhere

    If Covid-19 hasn’t taught me anything else, it’s a new appreciation for wine. It sounds really bad when I say it out loud, but I drink (almost) every day. I used to only drink alcohol socially, but one day I saw an article on Facebook that changed my outlook on drinking forever. It said that the antioxidants found in red wine could significantly reduce the chances of catching a cold. I’m not sure how the words “could” and “significantly” can coincide, but it was on Al Gore’s Internet, so it must be true… maybe. This news excited me so much because I catch a cold every year sometimes 2 or 3 times even during the summer months. No one likes being sick, but I especially hate having a cold. Regardless of the medicine I take, the symptoms persist 7-10 days, and while it’s a God-awful feeling, it isn’t bad enough to take time off from work considering the sick leave rate of 8 hours per month. I’m sure there are other foods with cold-fighting antioxidants, but wine is so much more fun. There are many places nearby with inexpensive choices: Trader Joe’s, Aldi, Total Wine, grocery stores, and local sellers. It’s now a permanent fixture on my weekly grocery list; and no, I haven’t had a cold since.

    Wine and therapy

    Wine and therapy

    Wine therapy can be defined as a series of refinement strategies that employ red wine and must. Must is the repeatedly crushed fruit juice that consists of the skins, seeds, and fruit stems. The substantial part of the must is called pomace and generally produces up 7–23% of the must's absolute substance, making it the initial step in the winemaking process (A History of Wine as Therapy, 1964). A beauty treatment born in France to obtain the most from the antioxidant, toning, and detoxifying properties of grapes promptly escalated to the rest of the world, notably in Italian wine lands (A History of Wine as Therapy, 1964).

    Religion and Wine:

    Religion and Wine:

    As one of the original alcoholic drinks of contemporary human civilization, wine has imparted itself into practically every significant religion of the world. Since the birth of time, the doctrines of Europe and the Middle East gradually embodied this “nectar of the gods“ into their observances, declaring its fame and continuity throughout generations and millennia of individual growth. During great courses of time, the recipe of wine was secured as a mystery of religious faiths and influential established families of Sumerian and Egyptian authorities (Fuller, 1996). When wine eventually reached Ancient Greece and Rome, it created an original set of gods and rites focused on this compelling alcoholic drink (Fuller, 1996). As those ancient civilizations collapsed, wine worked to withstand the dark and middle ages under the preservation of Jews and Christians, instructed by various wine displays in the Bible (Fuller, 1996).

    Hobbit Food Feasting

    “If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.” - The Hobbit My favorite part of the Holidays is the feasting and merriment. Spending hours with friends and family over shared bottles of wine and tables full of decadent food. Growing up, my family always did a traditional Christmas meal with turkey, casseroles, and pies. However, in the last few years, we've started something new that I think will stick for many years to come. On Christmas Eve I create massive charcuterie boards and we pop open several of our favorite wines from our favorite label: Lazarre.

    Bartending School - Is it worth it?

    Making drinks has always been a big hobby of mine. I was a barista for a few years, and had experience both teaching and attending numerous coffee seminars. I watched the World Barista Championship for fun, and I was practically a caffeine addict by the age of 14 (although that's another story) . Making artisan drinks was fun, and with the amount of time I spent exploring different concoctions, it came to no surprise that I would soon venture towards mixology as well. As an 18 year old from California I wasn't even sure I was legally allowed to attend a bartending school. But one morning I found myself calling a local bartending school for more information, and that same week I was enrolled.

    5 Reasons My First Attempt at Quitting Drinking Failed

    5 Reasons My First Attempt at Quitting Drinking Failed

    5 Reasons My First Attempt at Quitting Drinking Failed On January 1st, 2016, I decided my New Year’s resolution was going to be to quit drinking. Nothing bad happened the night before. I just found myself drinking more than I normally did (being it was NYE) and noticing that it wasn’t really adding to the experience. If anything, actually, it took away from it. I wasn’t as present for my kids as I could have been and I feel asleep before it was even midnight because of all the wine and champagne I drank. I thought back to when I was in high school and overall did not drink much and was perfectly happy. I wanted to go back to feeling like that. If your track record with New Year’s resolutions is anything like mine has been, then I probably don’t have to tell you that this one didn’t last. I made it to mid-April, so about 3 and a half months. I eventually ended up stopping again in late 2017 and when I did, a book I read said that if you have not been successful with quitting drinking in the past, it is because you have not had the right tools. That, combined with all the buzz I was hearing about how failures and setbacks are lessons you can learn from, caused me to sit back and analyze why this earlier attempt was not successful. I have been able to narrow it down to 5 main reasons:

    Beverages That Are Keto-Friendly

    Beverages That Are Keto-Friendly

    The keto diet has become a popular choice for those looking for an effective way to lose weight. It emphasizes eating a high-fat diet with plenty of protein, while limiting carbohydrates. Carbohydrates are more easily transformed to energy, so if you eat a diet that is high in them, this will be your body's choice of fuel to burn.When you cut back on the carbs, you force your body to burn fat for energy instead. One of the biggest questions for people who decide to give the keto diet a try, is whether or not any alcohol is permitted. The good news is that there are some options that you can partake in while staying true to your new diet. It's important to read your labels to become familiar with the ingredients in the beverage of your choice, and limit the number of drinks that you have since many are still high in calories. But, if you do a little research beforehand, you can find a few tasty choices to be your new go-to drink.

    Russian Standard Vodka is one of the fine joys in life. It is an incredible thing to mix with other drinks or to just sip on its own. I like how it adds some boldness but none of its own flavour to a drink and so, you can add subtle things to make it taste a certain way without using too many ingredients. It is not like a Daiquiri where you have to use a number of things to cover the taste of the rum or your Daiquiri will taste too much of rum and not enough of fruit.

    Brew Your Own Ginger Beer (Ale)

    Chances are, if your mother was born anytime after 1907, you've been given ginger beer or ginger ale at least once when you complained of an upset stomach. Well as it happens, there's a really good reason for this. Ginger is a natural anti-inflammatory agent and has antiemetic (anti-vomiting) and anti-nausea properties. As far back as 2,000 years ago, ginger root was prescribed as a digestive aid and remedy for upset stomach, diarrhea, and nausea in the form of teas and powdered medicines in India and China. As a lighter beverage, ginger beer/ale is ideal for restoring fluids to the body during intense upset stomach spells, often helping to avoid dehydration.

    Rock & Rye Medicinal Properties Are Many

    Rock & Rye is an 84 proof alcoholic beverage that was esrtablished in 1884. It is comprised of straight rye whiskey, navel oranges, raw honey, and rock candy. Bitters, which are flavored with botanical matter, are added to give the drink a taste that is both bitter and sweet. Longstanding brands of bitters initially developed into patent medicines, but now are sold as products to aid digestion. Bitters, also known as bitter herbs, (because they are considered to have herbal healing properties) are combined with cocktail flavorings. Since cocktails contain both sour and sweet flavors, bitters are used to make the drink more complex and give it a more complete taste.
