    How Do I Buy Wine?

    How Do I Buy Wine?

    So you just got into wine, or you are an enthusiast and collector, but how do you buy wine? And where do you buy it? Well, there is the local mom and pop liquor store that may carry a few "brands" of wine. There is the big Wine & Spirits chain that has a myriad of choices, and most likely you will get lost in the aisles, and dizzy trying to decide on a bottle. Well, there is always the trusty internet with its online store that gives you all the information about a wine and it's ratings, and what elementary school the wine maker went to. Of course, you won't be able to hold the bottle in your hand until you purchase it and it's shipped to you. That's no fun.

    Going out alone, going out by yourself. Sounds kinda lonely, doesn’t it? Like something you would only do if you didn’t have any friends to go with?

    Russian Vodka

    Russian Vodka

    It is hard to imagine any traditional Russian feast without vodka. It is customary to celebrate with it more significant life events (birthday, anniversary, or wedding) and less remarkable ones (a new pair of shoes, beginning of holidays, or just a weekend). Happy? Upset? Angry? Sorry? Here it is…

    For the Night and the House: How To Meet the Parents

    For the Night and the House: How To Meet the Parents

    I remember the first time I met a girl I was seeing's parents, and it wasn't good (in hindsight). I believe I must've been 16 at the time, and I didn't quite have a grip on how to keep my identity while still portraying myself as someone that wasn't nearly as hormone/heartbreak-driven as I was (am).

    So, you think you can drink. The real question, can you drink anything and still remain coherent? Can you out-drink your friends, wake up without a hangover, and make them think you're a god?

    Best Big Batch Cocktails Made with Rum

    Best Big Batch Cocktails Made with Rum

    Rum is one of the best party liquors you can buy. It gets people drunk fast, works well with cocktails, and basically helped invent the whole tiki party movement that you end up seeing every summer. It's sweet enough to work for a dessert drink, but strong enough to work in aperitif cocktails.

    Cool Ways To Serve Whiskey

    Cool Ways To Serve Whiskey

    Whiskey is one of those drinks that most people either love or hate, depending on how it's served. One of the biggest issues that whiskey seems to have, at least in terms of reputation, is the misconception that there aren't many cool ways to serve whiskey.

    Drinking Games You'll Love To Play

    Drinking Games You'll Love To Play

    While drinking alcohol, there are many routes one can take to getting to that perfect level of drunk. Some prefer drinking at a bar and sipping on their beer or cocktail, while others enjoy the fast paced exciting world of drinking games. Whether you are a college student or working class adult, you are never too old to enjoy the thrill of a drinking game. It is the perfect way to get drunk quickly, and when I say drunk I really do mean DRUNK. People pride themselves on their skill when it comes to these games, as well as their drinking abilities, and try to play as many different games as they can before completely blacking out. Others start off drinking games by saying something like "alright I will only play a round or two" of whatever respective game is being played, but that is not normally the case. Drinking games are far too fun to just play one or two rounds of just one game, and before you know it you realize that the room is spinning around and you have already played four rounds of five different games.
