Booze

shake

You may have never thought to infuse bacon, caramel and bourbon into a milkshake, but I bet now that you know it exists, you’re heading to Red Robin for dinner. The chain announced that they will be offering a Beam-N-Bacon Boozy Shake which will include Jim Beam’s maple bourbon, caramel, bacon bits, vanilla ice cream, and a strip of candied bacon as a stirrer. If you want to try one of these sinful concoctions, you have until November 2nd when this limited time item will disappear.

These custom designed Game of Thrones wines are the work of artist Oskunk who usually applies his talents to custom consoles. This time, he’s made wine bottles for the four main houses in the series, complete with matching case. They aren’t currently for sale, but he plans to have them available in the future.

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.

Check out the full recipe from Perry Santanachote over at Thrillist.

North America really likes their beer if this chart is to be believed. It shows what each country in the world chooses to drink most often from beer to wine to spirits and we are firmly in beer territory.

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.

Check out more examples after the break.

How do you deep fry tequila? Easy. This recipe by Oh, Bite It makes it simple by cutting up pieces of angel food cake, dipping them in tequila, and then throwing them in the deep fryer. She even dusted them with powdered sugar to look like the salt that’s usually on the rim of the glass.

honest liquor labels 1

Different kinds of booze have different effects on your system and personality. Total Sorority Move imagines a world where the labels on the bottles are honest about what’s going to happen later in the night. Malibu Coconut Rum? It’s packed with sugar and will leave you bloated. Wine? That will leave you crying into your pillow. Choose carefully, folks.

It’s allliivvveee! Yep, beer is a living thing, and the Sierra Nevada brewing company shot some footage of their Bigfoot Barleywine Style Ale being made in four open fermenters over the course of six days to highlight that fact. It’s pretty incredible to watch the so-called beer monster grow so quickly, and you’ll be pretty astounded when you watch this clip.
