Worst Nightmare: Fermented Giant Hornet Vodka

A couple years ago my brother showed me a picture of an Asian giant hornet, and I thought he had Photoshopped it for the sole purpose of ruining my life, because if I was in one of those horror movies where a psychotic sadist made all my biggest fears come true, the grand finale would…

Weekend Project: The Perfect Post-Thanksgiving Cocktail

I’m not a big fan of meals composed of Thanksgiving leftovers (my dad used to literally put all of the scraps of turkey, stuffing, green beans, and mashed potatoes in a blender and serve it as an opaque gray “holiday stew”). When it comes to cocktails, however, I’m all about getting creative with whatever ingredient…

Weekend Project: Caramel Apple Jello Shots

Just because Halloween is over doesn’t mean you can’t still enjoy some of the awesome flavors of the season, like caramel apples and vodka.

The Vodka Tampon: It’s Not Just For Girls!

Lock up the Kotex, Mom and Dad! Teens are apparently inserting vodka-soaked tampons vaginally and rectally to get drunk. Granted, this could be another urban legend like so-called “rainbow parties.” But it also could be a legit way the kids are getting wasted these days: A super-sized tampon can hold about a shot of vodka, and…

Why Is Kelly Bensimon Pouring Vodka In Her Hair? (And Does It Work?)

Speaking of strange beauty advice from celebrities, Kelly Bensimon is probably not a reliable source for anything other than acting a fool on reality TV. But girlfriend does have great hair, so her “DIY Hair Cocktail” recipe is worth a listen. Kelly posted a YouTube video of herself on massaging olive oil, salt, lemo…

Cupcake Vodka? Yes, Please!

Oh, yes, ladies, cupcake vodka is an actual thing! Cupcake Vineyards sells 14 wines but also vodkas with “creamy cupcake undertones.” OK, we’re listening. Cupcake vodka comes in four delicious flavors, including original, vanilla frosting, chocolate devil’s food, and lemon chiffon. Obviously the Cupcake Vodka PR people need to send The Frisky sample bottles so…

Gobble, Gobble, Slurrrr: Yes, Vodka-Infused Turkey Exists

Some prefer their turkey day drunkenness to transpire on the couch with a dozen relatives and a football game. Others prefer their alcohol shot directly in the bird. Georgi Vodka and several New York City restaurants have infused a turkey with five different types of vodka and prepared a 100-proof vodka gravy to serve o…

This Vodka Will Leave A Mark On Your Knees

Why Is Zooey Deschanel Shilling For Absolut Vodka?

Before today, I thought Zooey Deschanel was the perfect example of how stars can appear in ads without looking like sellouts. Her collaboration with eye wear manufacturer Oliver Peoples made sense, and the song she wrote about cotton, “the fabric of our lives,” was good enough for me to listen to at times besides whe…
