Original Grain has launched a Kickstarter for THE BARREL, a line of watches made with reclaimed American oak whiskey barrels. Not surprisingly, the project blew past its goal quickly. However, there’s still time to grab one at a discount. In our opinion, these watches are a ridiculous steal at $129-$169. Even at the full retail price of $249 they’re a bargain. Here’s why…

Great scotch…should go into these Back to the Future tumblers. There are three sets available with designs based on each film in the trilogy.

Even if you aren’t a real chemist, you can mix cocktails like one.

Oh, Rocket, what happened to you?

This poor little raccoon is out for trouble, as you’ll see in the video after the break. First, he broke into a liquor warehouse, then he knocked over a few bottles and started imbibing. Heavily. Let’s hope he was able to find a nice tree to curl up inside and sleep it off.

Check out the video after the break…

Red Robin is rolling out a burger and drink combo to promote the upcoming Terminator Genisys movie that hits theaters on July 1st. The burger is a beef patty topped with roasted jalapeno, pepper-jack cheese, shredded romaine, bacon, tomatoes and jalapeno aioli on a jalapeno-cornmeal bun.

The Blue Haze cocktail is Captain Morgan spiced rum, blue curacao, pineapple juice, agave nectar, and sweet and sour with a lemon squeeze served in a special tiki glass with a strategically placed cherry to mimic the Terminator’s red eye. Both will be available June 15 through August 23rd.

You can also get a free ticket to see the movie with the purchase of a limited edition $25 gift card. You’ll be back indeed.

Looks like Heisenberg is expanding his empire into a line of vodka.

Heisenberg Blue Ice Vodka is a limited edition bottling of standard Blue Ice that features one of three quotes from the show (my favorite is the “one who knocks”). The bottles will hit the shelves this summer, and you can order them online as well.

taco bell 2

As more and more companies look to go fresh and “artisanal”, Taco Bell is finding itself having to figure out ways to get people to keep making a run for the border. Recently, they announced that they’d be removing artificial colors and other chemical ingredients from their products (no more Day-Glo nacho cheese), but now their breaking out the big guns.

Booze.

Taco Bell has confirmed that they’re planning to test “wine, beer and mixed alcohol freezes” at their new Wicker Park, Chicago location when it opens this summer. If this means an alcohol infused Baja Blast daiquiri, I’m in.

They’re also planning a new design and food presentation that shows more of what goes into their products.

So, looks like the plan is to go from Taco Hell to Millennial Bell. As long as I can still get two tacos at 3am, we’ll get along just fine.

Check out an additional rendering of the Chicago location after the break…

Capture

Actor Chris Pratt had some fun promoting his upcoming appearance in GQ (along with Fireball Whiskey) by giving us all an acting lesson, while hilariously drunk. Apparently, whiskey (Fireball only) is what it takes to help you truly understand the imminent threat of being eaten alive by a dinosaur.

See Chris’s tweet and the NSFW (language) video after the break.

breaking_bad_bar

You’ll soon be able to drink Heisenberg-style you’re in London. A pop-up bar called ABQ after Albuquerque, will be offering adult beverages in an RV like the one Walter and Jesse used for their operation in the early days. It’ll cost £30 (about $47), to “cook” up two custom drinks with the bar’s expert mixologists.

Most of them will be blue I’m guessing.

Up to 22 people at a time will be able to customize a drink, but there’s already a long waiting list. There are over 18,000 guests who have already signed up for their chance when the bar is open starting in July through August.

See more pictures after the break.

The TGX tactical drinking flask offers 6 oz of liquid storage in a stainless steel housing with a matte black finish, textured PVC accent and screw-on cap. A nylon holster with 1 1/2″ belt loop is also provided for portability, as well as integrated MOLLE webbing.

It’s the kind of flask a spy like Archer would probably love to bring with him on an important mission that requires laser-like focus.
