Soon You’ll Be Able To Get A Cerveza With Your Taco Bell Chalupa

Anyone who was excited when Taco Bell made a taco out of a biscuit will likely be blown away by this news: The fast-food chain will now be serving beer, wine, and alcohol “freezes,” the Chicago Tribune reports. And there’s good reason why a Chicago newspaper is reporting on it: The fast-food joint’s new locatio…

12 Grapefruit Cocktails For Defiant Grapefruit-Obsessives Like Myself

This morning, I went to get my annual physical and while everything checked out fine, my new doc was kind of a party pooper when it came to one of my only vices: grapefruit juice. I didn’t tell her about the pot-smoking because I didn’t want a lecture, but I was stunned when she actually…

Mommie Dearest: On Breastfeeding In Bars

Sometimes it feels like moms who breastfeed in public can’t catch a break. Or, in the case of a Virginia mother, a few sips of beer.
A woman identified as “Crystal” was thrown out of Big Woody’s Bar and Grill for drinking a beer while she nursed her baby. Crystal says she only had…

Booze Is Coming To A Starbucks Near You

Starbucks has managed to turn its brand into a grownup’s version of a toy store, selling everything the over-18 yuppie set loves best: caffeine, jazz-infused compilation CDs, an attitude of superiority, and now, as part of its valiant attempt to take over the world, alcohol.   …

Life Dream Status: Red Robin Debuts Wine Milkshakes

Red Robin will always hold a special place in my heart. It was the most affordable “fine dining” establishment in the suburb a few miles from my small town high school, which made it the go-to place to celebrate birthdays, volleyball wins, SAT scores, and System of a Down CD releases. I spent many late…

Millennials Discover Fine Wine With Tasting Room, The Netflix Of Wine

The Millennial generation, which includes the youngest legal drinkers, is consuming more wine than previous generations, and they’re educating themselves about it too! Rather than bring a six-pack to the party, and guzzle beers with their college roommates, they’re enjoying fine wine and sharing their love and knowledge with friends. It’s certainly more refined, but is it…

Social Media Has Its Own Drinking Game, And It’s Kind Of Scary

Social media’s latest nightmare hashtag, #neknominating, is something of an interwebs drinking game. One could compare it to the boozy version of Rickrolling, except unlike an ’80s jam, Neknominating can get you killed.

Neknominating typically involves a group of bros filming themselves necking/chugging drinks via some outrageous stunt and encouraging others to do…

Girl Talk: Assorted Thoughts After Two Months Of Not Really Drinking

Up until two months ago, I was drinking, on average, a bottle of wine a night. I don’t know if that makes me an alcoholic. I wasn’t going out and getting blotto at bars; I was coming home from work, pouring myself glass after glass while I did responsible adults things, like laundry, cooking dinner,…

Dissimilar Boozing Habits May Lead To Divorce

Just in time for that bottle of Veuve Clicquot you and your spouse are planning to uncork on New Year’s Eve, a new study done at the University of Buffalo made some interesting discoveries about the effects of alcohol consumption on marriage.

Winos Don’t Know How Much Wine They Drink Because What Does It Matter? More Wine Please!

How do I put this in a way that won’t lead my coworkers and family to stage an intervention? I am a functioning wino, by which I mean I drink a lot of wine, but I’m always on time for work, rarely get wasted or have drunken outbursts, and smell just fine, thank you. How…

Life Dream Status: Cynthia Rowley’s Boozy Bangles

This picture has been floating around for awhile, but hey, it’s never too late to celebrate the existence of flask bangles, is it? These brilliant, booze-filled bracelets made their debut on the runway of a Cynthia Rowley show, and if they’re not available for purchase soon, I’m going to have to try to hollow out some…

Gather Round For Ye Olde Drinking Songs!

Does “99 Bottles Of Beer On The Wall” even count as a drinking song? Because if so, a 4th grade field trip is the last time I ever got jolly enough to sing the praises of alcohol. I think we can all agree that drinking songs are olde-timey and therefore rad and New Year’s Eve…

RIP Society: German Booze Poured Over Hungarian Playmate’s Naked Breasts Before Bottling

If your only contact with the female sex — say, perhaps, by court order — is through alcoholic beverages that have been poured over their naked cleavage prior to bottling, than I suppose this German liquor company’s publicity stunt is very exciting indeed.

But that, and only that, is the only reason you…

Why Your Lazy Bartender Doesn’t Want To Make You A Mojito

Once upon a time, I had a Dumb Idea. I decided to make mojitos, my favorite cocktail. They look so tasty and delicious in the bar, but come to find out they are a pain in the ass to make. The rum/mint/sugar/lime juice ratio is a delicate balance. And muddling the mint — “muddling” mea…

Make Your Wine Breathe Faster

Even if you’re currently on a drinking sabbatical, there’s no time like the present to start thinking about how to make your next glass of wine the best it can be. Everyone knows that wine that has been allowed to breathe tastes better than popping open a bottle and immediately chugging away. But who want…

Even Hello Kitty Likes To Get Drunk

I consider my taste in wine to be pretty, well, non-judgmental. I mean, I will savor the hell out of a nice Barolo, but if you hand me a glass of cheap champagne, I’ll guzzle that too. (Hell, I have even been known to enjoy Franzia.) That said, wine made by pretty pink pussycat Hello…
