Next month Châteaux en Bordeaux’s Hausmann Famille will debut Coca-Cola flavored wine called “Rouge Sucette” (‘Red Lollipop’) across France. The new booze will be 9% ABV and will consist of 75% wine and 25% sugar, water, and soda flavoring. Apparently the move is part of an effort by France’s wine industry, who is struggling to capture a younger generation who is “more attracted to beer and spirits”.

Meanwhile, you could easily replicate this at home right now by pouring Coca-Cola into your wine. Better make it boxed wine as that seems more appropriate.

New York City’s Dominique Ansel Bakery debuted a new frozen s’more dessert on July 13 to commemorate the two month anniversary of another one of their creations, the Cronut.

Dominique Ansel’s new frozen s’mores, which remain nameless as of Friday morning, will consist of cold vanilla ice cream coated in a crispy chocolate wafer and a layer of fresh marshmallow. The dreamy confection is then speared with an applewood-smoked willow branch and torched to order, adding a crème brûlée-style crunch to the outermost layer.

For their latest ad, the folks at Johnnie Walker resurrected Bruce Lee in CGI form for their Blue Label brand. In the ad he delivers a philosophical message which is somehow interpreted as “buy our booze”. Of course, not everyone is happy about this considering the fact that Bruce Lee didn’t drink. Speaking with the South China Morning Post Shannon Lee, Bruce Lee’s daughter, claims that it is a “tribute” to her father. She went on to say that “I don’t think that it’s about selling booze”.

The minus5° Ice Bar, which recently opened at the New York Hilton Midtown in New York City, is made almost entirely from Canadian ice, including the walls, seats, bar, light fixtures and drink glasses. The temperature inside the bar is kept at 23 degrees Fahrenheit and it has been reported that “any heat-emitting devices that could melt the Arctic freeze — like cellphones — must be deposited in temperature-proof lockers at the door.”
