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 just be putting me in a room with a really big bee. So I was horrified this morning when I came across a story about a Japanese vodka that’s made out of fermented giant hornets. Seriously: you drown a bunch of hornets in vodka and let the resulting stew ferment for three years. That’s the recipe. Apparently the drink smells like rotting flesh and has a “salty aftertaste that comes from the wasp’s poison.” I need a drink–made with non-hornet vodka–to recover from this story. [Oddity Central]

Weekend Project: The Perfect Post-Thanksgiving Cocktail

Make Vanilla Bourbon
So easy. So delicious. Read More »

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 ingredients you have on hand. This particular drink caught my eye because it makes use of a handful of gorgeous fresh cranberries, pairing them with ginger ale and vodka. If you have any green apples left over from pie-making this week, I think a couple thin slices of those would be another great addition. Cheers! [Book Cooker]

5 New Uses For Vodka

Vodka can do more than just make a happy hour, well, happier. It has lots of “off-label” uses that go beyond the bar. Don’t believe me? Check out this list of 5 uses for vodka. Share yours in the comments!

Goo Remover: Got a price tag, sticker or label that just won’t peel off? Bring on the vodka. Simply saturate a sponge (or paper towel) with the strong stuff, apply to the sticker and wait about a minute. The paper (and tacky residue) will come right off. Read more…

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 when consumed in such a manner, the booze absorbs directly into the blood stream.

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, lemon and vodka into her locks — supposedly on the advice of her hairdresser pal, who promised it’d give Kelly’s ‘do a “beachy” look. Sounds more like a “drunky” look to me. Any idea if vodka/lemon/salt/olive oil works — or does it just make you smell like a sorority girl on her 21st birthday? Kelly stops the video before we see the results! [YouTube] Keep reading »
