Drink Smart: This Month’s Juiciest News

Contributed by

Each week, we encounter all kinds of interesting booze news—from bar openings to new flavor releases. Only certain stories have us dropping our cocktail glasses though. This month’s include a freakish rendering of what the Crystal Head Vodka bottle would look like with a face and the ongoing limepocalypse. Tell your friends. Grab a barstool. Get educated.

Crystal Head Skull

The Face Inside the Vodka Bottle

limepocalypse

Enter the #Limepocalypse

The #limepocalypse is here. Drug cartels are harassing farmers and truckers in one Mexican area limes are grown, and that, coupled with a bout of Yellow Dragon tree plague, has lime prices skyrocketing. We weep for our Gimlets and Margaritas.

Whiskey Tears

In a heated debate about what constitutes Tennessee whiskey, lawmakers are considering changing the requirements. But, as is so often the case, the situation is a whole lot more complicated than that.

The New New

In the last month, we saw at least half a dozen brands release new bottlings. What got people talking: Bols’ new Foams, Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Fire, George Washington Peach Brandy and Cruzan Peach Rum.

A Venti Lager, Thanks

Starbucks’ new beer-and-wine menu will help take the edge off in a whole new way. (Oh, and make your bank account that much more depressed.) We’ll have two dark roasts and a tall malbec, please!
