…And we’re back people! Apologies for the lapse in blog posts the last two days as we descended into the depths of deadline to finish off the most bombastically awesome issue of Mutineer Magazine yet, which is slated to hit newsstands across the nation January 5.
Today, fine beverage finds an unlikely fan in controversial basketballer Ron Artest, who has admitted to drinking Hennessey Cognac during halftime while playing for the Chicago Bulls. See the full post »
Viggo Mortensen reprises the role of “The Man” in the film adaptation of Cormac McCarthy’s “The Road” which hits screens across the country on Wednesday. The book was fantastic, and the release got me thinking about fine beverage (and liquids) in a post-apocalypse environment.
The Man and Robert Neville, the main character in “I Am Legend”, took different approaches to drinking. Now folks, I haven’t seen either movie (dead tree stories still hold a special place in my heart), so I’m talking about the novels. NO SPOILER ALERTS! The Man won’t touch the stuff, and Neville drinks like a fish for a good portion of the story. So how would you roll? Here’s my top ten: See the full post »
7 Time Formula 1 World Champion Michael Schumacher has teamed up with mixologist Salvatore “The Maestro” Calabrese to show just how difficult it is to mix cocktails in the car. This anti-drinking and driving campaign is pretty awesome, even if it hates America and Canada.

Deadline has reared its ugly head once again in the world of the Mutineer, and the sleep deprivation has filled us with madness that lured us into an early morning drinking session today that featured Crystal Head Vodka and Gatorade (fruit punch), which led to some unanticipated yet completely predictable madness of its own, and eventually to “How many shots in a 750 ml liquor bottle” in Yahoo!

So how many shots are in a 750 ml liquor bottle?
Depends on how big your shots are. 1 oz. – 2 oz. is common.
1800 Tequila’s self-proclaimed “Tequila War” against Patron is getting epic, with 1800 Tequila creating a television commercial with Michael Imperioli (Sopranos) kicking a bottle of Patron off a desk. AND THEN…well, that’s really it. This is a pretty weak war so far, lacking the hallmarks of real corporate war, such as dirty smear campaigns and Escalade shootouts, but perhaps this is the first move of many. Stay tuned…
