Mimosas. Is there anyone who doesn’t love them? I mean, how could you not? Not too boozy to leave a bitter taste in your mouth …
While most my nights are spent critiquing films for We Got This Covered, my LATER nights are spent scouring New York City for the perfect pint, cocktail or anything that’ll get a little buzz going. And since I’m typically with other local critics, we end up talking about movies the whole damn time anyway. I mean, all the best writers were alcoholics, so we’re merely trying to capture just a fraction of their magic (without the liver disease). Write drunk, edit sober – it works. Trust me.
If you were like me as a kid, you loved a good ice cream float. Whether it was root beer or some other dark soda, it was only improved by plopping a big dollop of ice cream in it. Because, let’s be honest, ice cream is kind of like bacon… it makes everything better. As an adult, though, we move on from childish things like ice cream floats, right? Well, we don’t have to. Instead of moving on, we can just update childish things, and this simple update will forever change the way you view an ice cream float: add booze.
Ever wish you could go out, get as drunk as you want, and not have to deal with a hangover the next morning? Well, pretty soon you’ll be able to, all thanks to alcosynth. The new synthetic alcohol is being developed by a British professor who claims that it will still get you drunk, but won’t leave you with a dry mouth or headache the next morning.
In addition to the exciting news they announced earlier this week, that being the addition of two more items to their menu and an expansion of their mobile app, it seems that Shake Shack isn’t done with the reveals. This time, the company is bringing us three new Holiday Shakes for a limited time only at participating locations.
Fruit juice is usually served cold. There’s nothing more refreshing than starting your morning off with a nice tall glass of apple juice or orange juice right out of the fridge, right? However, serving juice chilled isn’t the only way to do it.
‘Tis the season! No, we don’t mean the holiday season. We mean the season for big brands to start looking ahead to 2017. Starbucks has done just that at their Biennial Investor Conference, where they showcased some upcoming offerings that they’ll roll out in the new year.
As numerous restaurants roll out new holiday menus, Jack In The Box doesn’t want to be left behind it seems, as they’ve temporarily expanded their sweets offerings with a new Golden Oreo Salted Caramel Shake. It seems like a win-win, too, since salted caramel is timely for Fall and Holiday fare and Oreos are just plain awesome.
Looks like Shake Shack isn’t the only one getting in on the holiday spirit, as Starbucks has now joined them and many other popular chains in rolling out some festive themed menu items. Available now at participating locations across North America, there’s two brand new items here for you to indulge in.
Starbucks basically rules the world. Or at least, they rule the coffee world. They also rule the holidays, as they almost single-handedly gave rise to the all-powerful Pumpkin Spice Latte. This year, though, it’s time for something new: an iced holiday beverage.
