So you’re planning a vacation to Dragonstone, are you? You’ll have fun. Of course, the weather isn’t great and it’s kind of remote. There’s also a certain Red Woman who likes to keep things a little too festive and fiery… but otherwise it’s fine.

If you visit Dragonstone, this Dragonclaw goblet makes a great souvenir. It’s absolutely perfect for raising a toast to the one true king (whoever that is) and it’ll be available for purchase in October.

Simpsons-Wine-1

We all know that Homer Simpson’s more of a Duff beer guy, but I can think of two reasons why Homer would be all over these Simpsons-themed wine bottles designed by Constantin Bolimond. First off, uh, alcohol. Secondly, the bottles are designed to look like Marge and him, so it’s the ultimate form of flattery.

Constantin’s bottles were also inspired by Pieter Mondrian’s art, and while they’re only a concept for right now, we’d love to see them for sale sometime in the near future.

Check out some more pics of the bottles after the break…

I think this week’s “unnecessary spending” award goes to one “uhcougars1151″ from Houston, Texas. Recently, the Redditor indulged in some imbibing and used Uber for a ride to a nearby bar@mdash;and when I say nearby, I mean that Google Maps estimated that the 82-foot journey would’ve taken approximately one minute to walk. Maybe longer if he kept stumbling and falling.

And the cost? Well, despite using the “25 percent off uberX this summer” deal, the total fare came to $4.28. He admits:

“After a night of fairly heavy drinking, I woke up to find I took a very unnecessary cab ride.”

Yeah, I think unnecessary is a bit of an understatement.

Now we know what the drink of choice is at Torchwood. Captain Jack’s Original Hypervodka is likely to wash away a day’s worth of trouble, and possibly transport you to another place in time entirely.

Capture

This brawl between two drunk Russian guys is pretty funny to watch, but add in some Street Fighter sound effects and it’s hysterical. Watch as Vodkaman and Drunkenstein swing and miss, and miss, and then fall over on their faces. Really, someone needs to move that car out of the way before one of these guys decides to smash it in a bonus stage.

See both the original and Street Fighter version after the break.

zombie hand wine stand

Looks like the Zombies are after our brains and our wine.

Indeed, the Zombie Hand Wine Stand holds one bottle of wine. So if you need more than one, you might have to dig up another corpse.

It has a velour bottom, which most zombies can’t say unless they died a pimp. The stand itself is made of polystone resin.

Check out more pictures after the break.

Happy Fourth of July! If you’re throwing an Independence Day shindig today, you might want to try out this fun recipe from Buzzfeed. You actually take a whole watermelon, scoop out the inside, and fill it up with Jell-O and vodka.

When you dish out the watermelon, make sure to pass out smaller-sized portions–the recipe calls for roughly four cups of vodka, so this watermelon definitely packs a punch.

If you’d like to check out the whole recipe, head on over to Buzzfeed.

disney frozen cocktails

Are you sick of Frozen yet? To bad because Disney Tokyo has concocted a line of inspired cocktails that are available at the Disney Ambassador and Tokyo Disneyland hotels any time between now and August 31st.

According to Rocket News:

  • Olaf is made from fresh pineapple, pineapple syrup, passion fruit syrup, and coconut syrup.
  • Anna is a blend of peach nectar, strawberry syrup, blue syrup, blueberry sauce, Calpis water and pink coloring.
  • Elsa is a cool blue mix of grapefruit juice, lemon juice, blue syrup, and gum syrup.

I’m also betting you can ask a bartender to add a little alcohol as a premium. Just make sure you don’t get your Anna mixed up with your kid’s Elsa or your trip to Disney is going to get a little crazy.

Coffee wine in a can

Make your mornings weird by tossing back a can of coffee flavored wine. Seriously. The product is coming from Friends Fun Wine in two flavors: Cabernet Coffee Espresso and Chardonnay Coffee Cappuccino. Just don’t expect a caffeine and alcohol buzz. Friends Fun Wine’s Facebook posting describes the product as follows:

We know you must be curious, and it’s a bit hard to describe the taste – you have to experience it, but once you try it you will fall in love, we promise! it’s a non caffeinated, low alcohol, low calorie drink.

Huh. I’m not a fan of flavored coffees so there’s no part of me that’s interested in this concoction. I’m guessing the company did some sort of market research to lead them in this direction though. Maybe they were looking for a Four Loko for the boxed wine aficionado.

Would you try this bizarre beverage?
