    Truly Hard Seltzer Review

    Truly Hard Seltzer Review

    I am always looking for new things in the grocery store to drink. It was Super Bowl LIV weekend and there was no shortage of beverages in the store. They were stacked in the aisles in areas that were not even related to beverages. When I saw cartons of Truly Hard Seltzer in the middle of an aisle, I was impressed with the beautiful slick cans. I put a carton of 12 in my shopping basket without looking at the price.

    Spirits for Holiday Parties and Gifts

    Spirits for Holiday Parties and Gifts

    At one time, you could go into a store and find a liquor aisle to browse through. That aisle has now turned into a dozen aisles, with spirits you probably never even heard of. Some of those liquors you may never want or need. When you do want something different for a special occasion or a gift, how do you know where to start?

    I Tried the Bright Cellars Wine Subscription Box, Here's What Happened

    I Tried the Bright Cellars Wine Subscription Box, Here's What Happened

    It was lunch time. I was sitting at my desk in Baltimore, halfheartedly stabbing at my leftover spaghetti with a plastic fork. Though I’m a chronic work-through-lunch person, I’d had a particularly tiresome morning and decided to take a somewhat proper lunch break.

    Beautiful Sake Sets Your Friends Will Adore

    Beautiful Sake Sets Your Friends Will Adore

    The origins of sake, the popular Japanese alcoholic beverage, remain somewhat ambiguous, but there's no denying its place as a cultural staple. Although the rice-based alcohol may not appeal to a great deal of American consumers, its simplistic nature and unique taste make it a popular beverage amongst a variety of niche drinkers.

    Bar Cleaning Products That Will Make Your Home Bar Sparkle

    Bar Cleaning Products That Will Make Your Home Bar Sparkle

    A surprising amount of heavy duty equipment and work goes into maintaining a commercial bar. High volume bars work through gallons of lemon juice, lime juice, sodas, and a wide variety of other mixers, which is a fast road to a sticky bar if you don't have the proper equipment. Home bartenders have a slightly different problem, as it's not necessary or financially realistic to purchase a bunch of heavy duty cleaning equipment when you aren't serving hundreds of customers. Luckily, there are plenty of must-have accessories for your home wine bar and incredibly high quality bar cleaning products that fulfill the needs of today's home bartender without breaking the bank.

    Best Canned Bloody Marys

    Best Canned Bloody Marys

    My dad Devon Thomas lets me have alcohol so long as it's supervised. Lately, he's been seeing a woman named Chica Reyass, and she's mellowed him out so much that he's just a cool dude to hang out around. I no longer have to be as guarded as I was before. How guarded? When he'd ask me, "How are you feeling?" I'd say, "I feel how I feel." The alcohol was his way to try to get me to loosen up and think he was cool.
