Here’s something that guaranteed to start you day with a bang. Not too long ago we brought you news of The World’s Hottest Vodka. It’s not anymore. This is. Master of Malt is at it again. Not content with simply 100,000 Scoville Vodka, they’ve rolled out an eye watering 250,000 Scovilles Naga Chili Vodka.
They’ve used the same Naga Jolokia chili, (you’ve probably heard it termed the “Ghost Pepper Chili” the distillers steep these hot little bastards in 80-proof vodka, filter so it’s smooth, and bottle it. Rumor has it they need to wear gas masks during the process, so hot are the chilis. Any product requiring a disclaimer is a good one in my book:
We have created a monster, summoned from the very bowels of hell, formed in a vile carboy filled with a horrid mound of Naga Jolokia chillies (the world’s hottest chillies), steeped in grain vodka. The result is the unspeakable 250,000 Scovilles vodka – a chilli vodka so horrendous we strongly recommend you don’t purchase it.
Sometimes stupid things are decidedly brilliant. This is one such invention. Really stupid. Really brilliant. Designed to hold both your food and beverage while you file yourself a table or pleasant spot to fit – the Go Plate fits over any bottle, can, or drinking cup. The only thing we’d recommend is not trying to take a swill from your beer while the plate is attached. Available on Amazon.
I generally don’t see much in the way of commercials anymore. I DVR almost everything I watch, or I get it on Netflix. There’s nothing more satisfying than seeing the show fade out, noting where a commercial should be, then it fading right back in again. That being said, I’m still a fan of well produced, quirky, or offbeat commercials. When some actual effort and thought has been put into production, it generally makes me smile. So here’s a free plug for Mike’s Hard Lemonade – because they make me smile. Thanks for the effort, gents (or ladies.)
There are three new commercials, all centering around the same group of guys drinking in the middle of the day. And there are beards. Beards make everything better. It’s the 30 foot tall woman, the headless deer, and the scarecrow that bring a smile to my face. It’s all done in the usual Mike’s deadpan delivery. Check out the videos below. You’re welcome.
Fog and Smog rolled out their new “rap” parody, one that parodies the current trend that sees bartenders becoming mixologists and a good $6 drink costing $20. It’s certainly worth a watch. If you’re not geeky enough to pause and check out the fake drinks that are on the menu, we’ll recap them for you. Because we have nothing but time.
· The Avon Barksdale: Hennessy, soda, free range heroin foam
· A Wilson’s Boulevard of Broken Dreams: Single mash Gatorade, bitters, Smirnoff ice, human tears
· Moist Yoga Mat: Hemp vodka, 12 year kombucha, wheatgrass with a coconut water back
· Hyphy Hangover: Grape 4 Loko, Peychaud bitters, thizz face
· Chewbacca’s Jacuzzi: Kashyyyk champagne, muddled slim jim, carbonite rinse
Check out the video below. If you’re curious, it was shot at LA bar La Descarga (which means “after the party.”) Think a too-cool-for-the-room pre-Castro Havana vibe, very cramped a super small footprint, burlesque dancers, $20 cocktails with shaved ice, cigars, and lots of expensive rum and you’ve got the idea. So just like the video then.
Glazed Donut flavored vodka certainly exists – so dessert is covered. But what about something for dinner? Until we get Filet Mignon vodka, Naga Chilli Vodka just rolled out something to keep you busy. While it may not fill your stomach, it certainly has the potential to burn your face clean off. It’s not slightly hot – it’s in fact infused with one of the hottest chili peppers on the planet. Something that registers in at a face melting 100,000 Scoville units.
If you’ve ever wanted to pull off the drink-in-a-paper-bag bum aesthetic while still trying to keep your drink cool, inventors of such niceties as the brass knuckle coffee mugs and grenade salt and pepper shakers bring you the equally fun Bum Bag Drinks Cooler (actually not on the internet “shelves” until sometime in August.) We’d say it’s a great way to look like the 99% while still maintaining a cold temperature for your drink – just like any upper-crust lush expects.
The evil genius behind such a device is thabto (two heads are better than one) and while it may look the part of disposable bag – their drink cooler is water-resistant, tear-proof and made to look and feel like an actual paper bag. There’s no info on the actual dimensions just yet, but judging from the photos provided it seems like it will cover your average long-neck. Be advised that it leaves the neck exposed, so it won’t be keeping you safe from the police unless you live in Vegas. Pricing is set at £5.95 which works out to $9.22 (at current exchange rates) for us Yanks.
