Moscow Mule Copper Mug Set (4)

moscow_mule_copper_mug.jpgIf you've never had a Moscow Mule, you're missing out on an excellent, simple drink that completely hits the spot during summertime. Basically a Dark N Stormy with vodka instead of dark rum, this combination of vodka, ginger beer and lime juice is like a high five of deliciousness for your tongue.

For those of you who are familiar with Moscow Mules, here are a couple things you might not know - 1) a Mule (also known as a "Buck") is any variation of cocktail using ginger beer, citrus juice and a base spirit, and 2) Moscow Mules are traditionally served in a copper mug instead of a glass. Most bars these days serve the cocktails in pint glasses because they already have them around, and because the interesting-looking copper mugs have a tendency to grow legs and walk out the door.

If you're a fan of this delicious drink you can get your own copper mugs for a bit of an investment. Do they make the cocktail better? Some say they do, because of some science-y mumbo jumbo called oxidation. But we just think the mugs look badass, really.

It's the Scumbag Booze's Fault

scumbag_stoli.jpgHey, you know when you have too much to drink and suddenly terrible ideas seem like awesome ones? We've heard some people say alcohol eats away at your judgment - though we've always attributed it to vile humours and foul daemons that need to be exorcised with more booze.

Turns out the folks at Sad and Useless have finally figured it out - when you get drunk enough you can actually hear the liquor talking to you. And it turns out that liquor is a jerk! See more pictures of scumbag booze.

How to Build a Kegerator Freezer (Keezer)

We've been thinking about getting a kegerator for Liquor Snob headquarters (because why not, right?) but we really like the idea of building our own. We don't have a chest freezer like the one used in this how to video from Northern Brewer, and that's pretty much the only thing keeping us from heading upstairs and pawing all the frozen waffles and ice cream right out of the damn thing post haste.

Get Insta-Drunk with WA|HH Quantum Sensations

quantum-sensations.jpgFor us, drinking is the fun part and the buzz is the awesome side effect, but apparently there are people out there who'd rather get the loopiness without crushing their way through a cocktail. For those people, we offer you Quantum Sensations, which is apparently the Binaca of booze. You breathe it in, you get a buzz, and apparently you're unbuzzed seconds later. Sounds like the opposite of a good time to us, but maybe it'd be good if we decide we need to freshen up our buzz while we're in the bathroom. [via Gizmodo]

Seriously, it's not available in the States yet and even when it is you may want to tread lightly according to Ubergizmo:

One ought to tread on such a device with caution, however, since there is no way to regulate the use of such a device, and even after recovering from a state of drunken stupor, there might be slight side effects which could affect the motor and cognitive skills of the person.

How to Mix a Mojito (In a Bustier)

The woman in this video appears to be making a simple cocktail of some kind. We THINK it says something about a mojito, but our lizard brains keep getting in the way because she's wearing lingerie while she does it. Oh well, we suppose we'll just have to watch the video again to see if we can retain something... [via EyeHandy]
