If you thought boxed wine was classy, get a load of this.
A company by the name of Binocktails thinks you’re paying too much for booze and has created a handbag with a 28 oz. hidden flask in the base and a spout on the outside “for easy pouring”. Don’t worry, there’s a flap to cover the spout, so no one will know your secret.
It’s a purse and a bar in one!
The Bev-Bag comes in four colors: black, tan, pink, and red.

Summer may be nearly over, but there’s still plenty of time to cool down with this very adult popsicle concoction. These Bacon Bloody Mary Popsicles are perhaps the greatest treat you’ll have all summer. You start by soaking the bacon in some vodka, then wrapping it around a breadstick and baking it to form the stick for your popsicle. Next you poor Bloody Mary mix into a popsicle mold, insert the bacon breadsticks and freeze overnight.

The map was put together by Ghost in the Data who compiled information from the World Health Organization to determine regional favorites.
Not only did they map out what is popular where, but they’ve got it broken down even further on their site. There you can see how much of each type of alcohol is consumed by the people of each country in an average week, proving we all kick back with a nice cold one on a pretty regular basis.

Leave it to Scotland to come up with Whisky and Haggis potato chips. Yeah, that whole haggis thing might be a deal breaker, but the whisky part of it all might just be worth the risk. They’re the concoction of Mackie’s of Scotland and sadly are not available in the US.
While we all have certain items of value, it’s not always feasible to have a personal vault or a safe. We also, as a general rule, like to give gifts to other people (and ourselves) that are both functional and fun.
The Hollow Book Company has come up with a Hollow Book Safe with a matching whiskey flask that pretty much takes care of both of those needs at once.
Whether you take the flask out and use the book as a safe, or you use the book to carry your flask, you can keep a secret and look well read at the same time.
