As both a Star Wars fan and a whiskey fan, I am absolutely delighted to learn of the existence of a blogger who goes by the name of Scotchtrooper.

There’s also an Instagram account with, wait for it…whiskey and Star Wars-themed photos.

This is the best thing I’ve seen all week. See more after the break…


New York’s El Original says their 7-pound Seis De Mayo breakfast taco will handle any hangover Cinco De Mayo can throw at it.

Made with 12 eggs, 1 pound of potatoes, 1 pound of sausage, 1 pound of bacon, 1 pound of refried beans, 1 pound of mixed grilled onions and peppers, 8 oz. of pico de gallo, 8 oz. of salsa, 4 oz. of queso fresco and then topped with shredded cheese and even more bacon, this things manages to “fit” inside one 12-inch tortilla.

The Seis de Mayo costs $50 bucks, but I’m suggesting you share it with friends or you may find your hangover cured by your subsequent death by taco.

As the name suggests, the taco will be available starting tomorrow, May 6th, for all of your hangover-curing needs.

Periodic Videos has transformed the Jagerbomb from booze into a bomb by adding sodium and potassium into the mix.

The sodium provides a pop and bright colors when it is dropped into the Jager and Red Bull concoction, while potassium causes a violent reaction that actually shatters the beaker.

While this is just a basic description, the video below provides all the details… and the explosions.

One of the best things in the recent Lootcrate Firefly Crate was a little 4-pack of paper drink umbrellas based on Kaylee’s parasol. I didn’t want to use them because I only had four, but QMx has solved that problem.

They’ve released the new Kaylee Parasol drink umbrellas in packs of 30, so you can have a Firefly shindig and make sure everyone gets one.

How shiny is that?

Fun fact, Nerdalistas – I’m neither a drinker nor a Dark Souls fan, so I’m absolutely the right person to tell you about this adult beverage based on a healing potion from what is apparently everybody’s favorite roleplaying game.

The team at The Geeky Chef have provided a recipe based on the game’s Estus potion which includes, among other ingredients, orange juice, ginger beer and – no, but yes! – cinnamon whiskey. You then serve the concoction in a tiny glass bottle for authenticity’s sake, I guess.

One of these and your HP will be restored, giving you the strength and courage you need to save Middle-Earth (or something). Just remember that alcohol doesn’t actually have healing properties and is, in actual fact, a depressant, so you may find yourself less inclined to rescue Muggles (or whatever) and more likely to burst into tears and loudly asking why Jennifer left you. Why, Jennifer? We were so good together.

fallout flask

Fallout 4‘s wasteland can be downright stressful. From raiders to mutants, pretty much everyone and everything in that irradiated cesspool can kill you. Plus, its almost impossible to find a beverage that isn’t chockfull of radiation.

Fortunately, there’s this trusty Vault 111 flask. Featuring an official Vault-Tec logo with stitched numbers, this flask can hold six ounces of your favorite radiation-free beverage. Warning: the flask doesn’t offer any damage resistance bonuses.

cocktail ice

If murky ice cubes are ruining your sophisticated gatherings, Cocktail Chemistry can help.

The following tutorial video illustrates a process called “directional freezing” that allows sediments in the water to rise to to the top and be separated once frozen. In addition to being crystal clear, the resulting ice is customizable to any size and can be shaped into cubes balls and sticks.

Quinoa sourced from the Altiplano plateau in the Andean mountains and a proprietary production process resulting from two-years of research have all come together to get you bombed in the form of Quinoa Vodka.

The smugness level of this beverage is 11 on a scale of 1-10.

This Fair Trade vodka is a product of a joint effort between French distillers and Andean farmers and offers award-winning taste as well as an instant topic of conversation about the proper pronunciation of “quinoa”.

In order to help nightclubs push more VIP, magnum-sized bottles of Champagne, a Miami company has developed a Champagne machine gun that will waste the bubbly by soaking partygoers.

After attaching the bottle and providing a quick shake, users will have 45 seconds of spray time with a distance of up to 23 feet.

The device is offered in chrome, gold, and rose gold varieties, and is available to the public for a wallet busting $400. But if you’re the kind of person that often gets into champagne battles, I’m guessing that money is no object.

Maybe I can fit a 1.5-liter bottle of Dr. Pepper into this thing.

See the gun in action below.
