As we enter the holiday season many people will be purchasing Champagne to heighten the merriment and festivities surrounding the many parties and events they will be attending. This year instead of Champagne branch out and try something new. Get a bottle of Bière de Champagne. See the full post »

Here at Mutineer Magazine we are strong advocates for the bacon movement, i.e. the movement of it from the pan to our mouths, and as such bacon is on our radar. We even have bacon-related meetings, well ok, that was an exaggeration, but if we did I’d want to walk into the meeting with my brand new bacon cellphone case for my iPhone.

You’ve probably had a “song” with that special someone, you know, “Oh, they’re playing our song!” Music is a soundtrack to our culture, but so is food and beverage.

I would like to set the record straight once and for all; Jäger kicks ass.
There are two kinds of Jäger haters on earth:
1) The ones who can’t handle the licorice-meets-Robitussin taste.
2) The ones who say it’s a waste of money because it’s 5% less alcohol than most whiskey, vodka or rum. These people usually are closet profile #1 people.
When properly chilled (a degree from frozen) Jäger goes down so smooth you can barely taste it. By the time you realize it resembles something medicinal, you’re on your way to the pink elephant show. See the full post »
I’m never one to shy away from a new experience. Today I tried my first flowering herbal tea. This was labeled Champagne Wishes and started off as a tightly bound, slightly mushroom shaped bundle of what looked like grass. I placed it in the bottom of my mug and added boiling water then watched it literally flower. I let it steep for about ten minutes as it opened up fully. See the full post »
