My roommate and I have a long and glorious tradition of sitting on the couch every night and drinking, while watching 70’s musicals. It’s glamorous, to be sure, but sometimes it’s nice to have a little excitement in life. Sometimes we get sick of beer, or wine, or no-brainer cocktails like vodka tonics. I love cocktails that are clean and simple and don’t use too many ingredients. Plus which, it’s annoying and expensive to keep lots of bottles of random mixers and liqueurs around, so I like to come up with easy, cheap and unusual cocktails that only need a couple of ingredients. Please to enjoy. See the full post »

I was taking my daily trip to the convenient store to purchase a much needed energy increasing beverage only to find myself in front of the glass refrigerator door staring at an intriguing can. Its name pronounced Juice, but spelled even cooler, “Joose”.

This stuff is supposedly quite the aphrodisiac, but to be honest, it scares the hell out of me. As if having a cobra in your whiskey isn’t enough, this particular bottle also has a grass snake in it, which is actually in the cobra’s mouth.
The only real use I can see for this is for proactive parents wanting to deter curious teenagers from rummaging around the liquor cabinet. I mean, kids are typically nervous enough when they are rummaging through cupboards like a liquor bandit, can you imagine if they grab a bottle thinking they hit the jackpot, only to find a friggin’ king cobra with a grass snake in its mouth IN the bottle…problem solved.
