When Frachelli first received a bottle of Ron de Jeremy Rum, I was skeptical to say the least. A pornstar themed drink? A little silly. But then some friends and I drank it – and it was delicious. Also, there is the obvious fun novelty of a Ron Jeremy endorsed beverage. The same can be said for the latest varietal, Ron de Jeremy Spiced Rum. When you sip this imported Panamanian rum, its quality is quickly noticeable – plus the spiced version knocks things up to 94 proof for some extra kick. I recently had a gathering where a ton of booze was drank, but one of the only compltely empty bottles was the Ron de Jeremy. There’s also a twitter contest going on now where you can win a trip for 2 to LA to hang with Ron.
If you’re a gin drinker, give BULLDOG Gin a whirl. This award-winning Gin is handcrafted in London, but features 12 botanicals from 8 different countries. Quadrupile distilled and infused with Poppy, Dragon Eye, Lemon, Cassia, Almond, Juniper, Orris, Lotus Leaves, Licorice, Lavender, Angelica, and Coriander (think that’s all 12) – BULLDOG Gin was named as a “Top 50 Spirit” by Wine Enthusiast Magazine. Priced around $23 for a 750ml bottle, it’s very reasonable on the wallet too.
If booze mixed with hot sauce is something that entices you, we have just the thing. Last night we attended a launch party for Southern Comfort Fiery Pepper, a new liquor infused with original Tabasco brand pepper sauce. When it hits shelves and bars this fall, it’ll likely be consumed via shots (by young 20′s males beating their chests) but as we learned last night… it also makes for some tasty spicy cocktails and will be at home in a Bloody Mary.
I always found vintage maps and globes fascinating. We take for granted that we can now go to Google Earth and drill down to the driveway of the house we grew up in. Before, map making took a lot of adventure – along with guesswork. This 22″ Italian style globe comes wrapped with replica 16th-century nautical maps from the National Museum of Science, Florence. Adding a great antique and vintage aesthetic to your decor, it also functions as a bar. The globe hinges open to store glass and stemware and a bottle of your liking. There is additional storage for liquor, wine, and other favorite forms of hooch. When furnishing your home or apartment, add a little class to your booze stash….
