Rosé, Bourbon and Freshness

An amazing cocktail recipe that I saw my friends make. It's quite cold and freshening and tasty as well. Ingredients 7 tablespoons raw sugar 2 cups fresh blueberries, divided 2 cups brewed unsweetened black tea1 1/2 cups fruity rosé 1 cup bourbon 3/4 cup fresh lemon juice 8 lemon slices Preparation Stir 7 tablespoons in hot water until the sugar is dissolved, then transfer the dissolved sugar into food processor. Later add 1/2 cups blueberries to the processor and purée. Set a strainer over a large pitcher and then strain the blueberry mixture, meanwhile press on solids parts to extract as much as liquid as you can. Later add tea, rosé, bourbon, and lemon juice to the pitcher. Refrigerate until it's chilled, it takes about 2 hours or 3 depending on the fridge. Cut remaining 1/2 cup blueberries in half; add to pitcher. Fill Old Fashioned glasses with ice. Divide cocktail among glasses. Garnish with lemon slices and serve.

What To Drink Tonight: Hot Toddy with a Twist
I was browsing the internet for hot drink recipes when I stumbled across this twist on the classic Hot Toddy. For those of you who don't know what a Hot Toddy is, it's a classic hot alcoholic beverage typically enjoyed during the cold months of fall and winter. It lights the most delightful fire deep inside you, filling your body with warmth that spreads all the way to the tips of your toes. A classic hot toddy contains: whiskey hot water spices (such as cinnamon and cloves) lemon juice honey Keep in mind, there are about a million variations. But that's the classic, and it's been a beloved homespun cold and flu remedy for decades. This twist on the old classic is called a Pearman's Toddy, and it's what you should be drinking on this chilly fall night. Now this variation is particularly suited to fall because of the homemade cinnamon simple syrup. Fill your home with the delicious wafting scent of cinnamon while preparing an alcoholic beverage to enjoy with a loved one? Yes, please! Another reason the Pearman's Toddy is so interesting to me is the replacement of whiskey with gin. The notes of pine and bitter herbs in a good gin make it a particularly attractive autumnal spirit in my book. Combine that with a bit of lemon juice, cinnamon simple syrup, and a shake of good old Angostura bitters, and you've got the perfect thing the keep you warm tonight. Make your own Pearman's Toddy! Recipe adapted from Saveur You'll need: 2 oz. gin 1 oz. cinnamon simple syrup 1⁄2 oz. lemon juice 1 dash Angostura bitters 5 cinnamon sticks 1. Make the simple syrup: In a small saucepan, combine 2 cups water, 1 1/2 cups sugar, and 4 cinnamon sticks and bring to a boil. Simmer for 10 minutes, stirring frequently, until sugar has dissolved. Discard cinnamon sticks and set aside. 2. Make the cocktail: Rinse small saucepan and re-use to heat gin, syrup, lemon juice, and 2 oz. of water. Pour into a mug or mason jar and add bitters. Garnish with last cinnamon stick, and enjoy the feeling of warmth spreading through you! Feel free to share this recipe with other Fall cocktail lovers :) @marshalledgar @BrettEckert @rodiziketan @VinMcCarthy What do you guys think of this one?? Ever tried it?
So Good Or No Good: Kimchi Soda - Are You Down?
Welcome to another week of the Funny Community game - "SO GOOD OR NO GOOD"! At the beginning of every week, I post to ask your opinion on weird food combinations that people either strongly love or strongly hate, and then share the full community results! Last week, I asked you how you felt about Tabasco sauce! Out of the 57 users who voted either way, Tabasco was decided to be 'SO GOOD' by 44 voters. That means Tabasco sauce is SO GOOD!!!! This week I want to know: Would you try kimchi soda? For those unfamiliar, kimchi is spicy Korean cabbage that undergoes fermentation, giving it a distinct sour flavor. And Japanese soft drink company Ramune was just like "Hey, let's make this kimchi stuff into a soda!" But would you be brave enough to try kimchi soda yourself? Is Ramune's kimchi soda SO GOOD or NO GOOD? Let me know in the comments below!

7 Reasons to Drink More Wine
Sometimes there is nothing better than a glass of wine after dinner, and now you have even more reasons to indulge! So grab some Five Buck Chuck, put the kids to bed, and improve your health :) It Can Make You More Attractive Some alcohol (about the amount found in one glass of wine) can give your skin a healthier glow, making you look more youthful! It's Good for Your Heart Researchers agree that moderate (no more than two glasses a day) wine consumption may reduce your risk of heart disease, possibly because of the polyphenol content. It May Help Maintain Muscle Maybe astronauts should drink more wine! Researchers looked into the effect of resveratrol, found in wine, on muscle mass and found that it does in fact help with muscle mass, strength, and bone density! It Reduces Stress All types of alcohol are central nervous system depressants, so they depress brain activity and trigger a calming, sleep effect. It also helps when you're drinking wine with friends or a good book! It Can Burn Fat A chemical found in muscadine grapes (a dark-red variety) may slow the growth of fat cells, according to a recent Oregon State University study. Sadly, guzzling a bottle of red still isn't your best weight-loss strategy :) It Can Help Fight Cavities You heard right. Despite the high sugar count in grapes, both wine and grape seed extract may actually be good for your teeth, since they help rid teeth of plaque-causing bacteria!

Korean Girls Try Mexican Soda For The First Time!
Just when that whole YouTube trend of sampling foods from different cultures was losing its sparkle to me, Digitalsoju TV had to go ahead and introduce Korean girls to Jarritos. I've been wanting to write a card about Jarritos for a while now, as it's one of those Mexican sodas that are an essential part of the culture of Mexican cuisine. Sure, you can talk about Baja California seafood or the delicious carnes of central Mexico's ranching region, but what would that deliciousness be without a cold, fizzy Jarritos on the side? If you don't know Jarritos, it's an incredibly popular Mexican soda brand that's made with cane sugar and comes in a variety of flavors, including strawberry, guava, pineapple, and tamarind. In this video, the girls end up sampling the pineapple, grapefruit, mango, and guava flavors, but how does Jarritos translate in the Land of the Morning Calm? Let's look! Like any good soda, the first thing they notice is it's full of sugar. And then they all realize they're obsessed with the guava one. My favorite was the homegirl going too hard on the grapefruit. This one had her ranking all figured out. Does it match yours? Overall, these girls all agreed that Jarritos was delicious - and would be even more delicious mixed with a little vodka! You can check out their FULL commentary - plus their opinion on Squirt! - in the embedded video above. And then let me know: What's YOUR favorite Mexican soda flavor? And if you haven't tried Jarritos before, which flavor would YOU want to try? @bangtanboysfan1 @AnnahiZaragoza @fabiola12fb @abiersack666 @YeseniaLira @DianaKpop58 @reyestiny93 @AdaliaMartinez @exokpop12385 @michellefuentes @perlaaraujo73 @jessicacruz1480 @DulceOjeda @giselacampos14 @wuyifanslover @nevershoutnancy @mirandazamira @jooheony @YeseniaF @SunnyV @IlseJimenez @KpopGaby @NelyJoss @aabxo @aliciasalinas @ThyaremyCreator @Cuetlatchli @Sunflower18 @purplem00n23 @jannatd93 @Luci546 @ALEXCAMACHO @TehDL @buddyesd @JocelynPacheco @SarahRegulski @MyAffairWith @FelipeZambrano @LindaGuandique @KassyGuz96 @XDLP @alywoah @FelipeZambrano
Make Bourbon Blondies (For Dinner)
A while ago I shared a card about having dessert for breakfast, which is a MUST! If that interests you, and it really should, then you should click here to see just how chocolatey and decadent it truly is. Ingredients: 1/2 cup walnuts 3/4 cup unbleached all-purpose flour, plus 1 tablespoon 1/2 teaspoon baking powder 1/4 teaspoon salt 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, browned and cooled 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar 1 egg 1 teaspoon vanilla 2 tablespoons bourbon 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small pan on medium heat, melt the butter stirring occasionally. Cook the butter until it begins to have a nutty smell and turns an amber color. Do not overcook or it will burn easily. Remove the browned butter to a glass bowl or cup and set aside to cool. Spread the walnuts in a single layer on a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes or until they are golden brown. Transfer the nuts to a cutting board and chop lightly. Set aside. Cut a length of parchment paper to fit a 8×8 baking dish allowing the paper to come up to the top of the pan on both sides. Cut another sheet to fit in the opposite direction also trimming at the top of the pan. Spray the parchment paper lightly with cooking spray. Set aside. Whisk 3/4 cup flour, baking powder and salt together in a small mixing bowl. Set aside.In another medium mixing bowl combine the browned butter and brown sugar until blended. Add the egg and mix well. Blend in the bourbon and vanilla and mix just until incorporated. Fold the dry ingredients into the butter mixture just until combined. Do not over-mix. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon of flour to the chocolate chips and toss until the chips are somewhat covered. Add the chocolate chips (with flour) and the toasted walnuts to the batter. Fold in gently. Spread the batter evenly in the prepared pan. Bake until the top is shiny, cracked and light golden brown, 22-24 minutes. Do not over-bake. Blondies should be chewy, not crunchy. Cool the Blondies in the pan then lift out using the parchment paper. Transfer to a cutting board and slice into bite sized squares. Now, who's going to make these and mail me a few to try?
