Booze

powder_Upload

Palcohol powdered alcohol is here to save you from the horror of having to carry around a heavy bottle of booze. Instead, all you need is a packet of this powdered alcohol and 5 ounces of water. The idea comes from Mark Phillips who leads an active lifestyle and wanted an easier way to enjoy a drink after a day of activity like hiking or camping.

Even though this is powder, it is still alcohol so it will be sold just like alcohol in the US. And yes, this stuff has actually been approved by The Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau. There’s already a dehydrated beer out there, so alcohol is just the evolution of the concept.

We know what you’re thinking (which is part of the problem). From the Palcohol website:

Can I snort it? We have seen comments about goofballs wanting to snort it. Don’t do it! It is not a responsible or smart way to use the product. To take precautions against this action, we’ve added volume to the powder so it would take more than a half of a cup of powder to get the equivalent of one drink up your nose. You would feel a lot of pain for very little gain. Just use it the right way.

I’m sure that will stop all the goofballs from trying it. But what about sprinkling it over food?

Knowing the former King Robert, his house drink would’ve most likely been anything that had alcohol in it, but Critical Hit Cocktails came up with a boozy beverage in honor of the tubby deceased ruler of the Seven Kingdoms. Remember to cry out the Baratheon words (“Ours is the fury!”) before you down this rather potent drink.

MadMen

The final season of popular AMC drama Mad Men has arrived, and with it fans must say goodbye to the stylish and retro atmosphere of the 1960s the show brought into their living rooms.

One element that helps bring that nostalgia to our screens is the food and drink highlighted in the series. The drinks Don Draper and his co-workers often have in hand come to everyone’s minds when they think of the series, but food also plays a central role.

“Food is as important as the drink. There are dishes that we don’t see any more such as cheese topped Apple Pie or Turkey Tetrazzini. They’re used in historical ways to help establish the period. It’s one of the details that helps establish the feeling of authenticity about the era,” Judy Gelman, co-author of The Unofficial Mad Men Cookbook: Inside the Kitchens, Bars, and Restaurants of Mad Men, told That’s Nerdalicious.

The cookbook features more than 70 recipes that can help you enjoy some retro dining with your fellow Mad Men fans as you watch season seven over the next few months. Get tips for throwing your own Mad Men-era dinner party and find four delicious recipes you can try after the break!

This ancient, six-ounce Deku Flask features the legendary Kokiri symbol, which carries a powerful spell that will keep you safe from both bodily injury and a pointy-stabby death while journeying throughout Hyrule… but it also does a wonderful job of keeping your alcohol safe too!

3d whiskey 2

As far as I’m concerned, whiskey is an art form. However, it gets taken to another level when intricate 3D ice cubes are used to chill it. 3D on the Rocks uses fresh spring water and a precision drill to create what are essentially chilled sculptures for your glass of whiskey. Their designs feature sharks, the Statue of Liberty, and a space shuttle among others. I don’t know if ice cubes have ever been quite this beautiful.

See more fancy ice cubes after the break.

Yes, that man extremely intoxicated. There’s also a fence in his way and it’s causing him a lot of trouble, but a charitable individual shows him the secret of the rusty green fence and everything ends on a happy note. Yay!

zelda wine charms 1

It’s dangerous to drink alone! So, take these Legend of Zelda wine charms to a party or invite people over to join you. The five piece set includes Link, Link wearing Ezlo, Zelda, Vaati, and Belari depicted in metal and displayed as charms on hoops with Swarovski crystals. They loop around the bottom of a wine glass, or you can even use them on a coffee mug handle. They would make a great housewarming present for the Zelda fan in your life!

Look at individual shots after the break.

shot glass crawler 1

Want to make drinking shots a little more creepy? If so, you need these shot glass crawlers from Christopher Cordingley. He loves the form and expression of human hands so he designed a series of ceramic shot glasses that look like hands in motion. They are a little weird, but it’s a cool design that’s not quite like anything I’ve seen before.

They come in .6, 1, 1.5, or 2 ounces and are available in a variety of colors. The black ones would be perfect for Halloween celebrations.

See more pics of the glasses after the break.

game of thrones drinking game

I know drinking games are fun and I think we need one for Game Of Thrones because, well, GoT makes you need a drink more often than not.

But I’m pretty sure the rules of this drinking game by The Savory would result in alcohol poisoning.

Aw, what the heck. Valar Morghulis.

Head after the break to see the rules.
