We know that the best way to celebrate anything is with a great drink, so on Pineapple Day it’s only fitting that we put our pineapple drink inside a pineapple. To do this properly you need a pineapple de-corer which is a rather inexpensive and handy tool that helps you avoid the agony of scooping out the inside of the pineapple. It also keeps the pineapple bits in slices, which makes them easier to store for use. Once you’ve cored your pineapple and taken out the slices, put them in the freezer. Take the top of the pineapple and cut out a small wedge so there will be a place to put your straw.

    Cocktail Corner: Starting off Summer with Antioxidants

    acai

    As of Monday, June 20th, summer has officially begun. And you know what that means? It’s time to diet…or at least pretend to diet. What’s more of a perfect way to pretend diet than adding this Amazonian superfood, indigenous to the Brazilian diet, to a cocktail. Acai, although wildly mispronounced, is one of the few fruits known to man to be naturally sugar free, full of healthy fats, and infused with antioxidants. Having a similar natural chemical balance to that of wine, Acai acts as the perfect addition to a drink. So keep on trying to get to the gym and eat healthier, but in the meantime let’s be real, we all need a little vodka in our lives.

    We’re not the type of people who need a reason to drink. If we’re breathing that’s reason enough. But for those who need more, here you go:

    1. Game of Thrones: It’s sad to say that GOT’s is coming to an end this Sunday and (spoiler!) luckily so has Ramsay Bolton’s life from last Sunday. But what a way to end with an episode that is 69 minutes long, the longest episode in series history. This gives you plenty of time to indulge in the show and maybe fit in one more drink.

    While children enjoy their hot apple ciders on crisp fall days, adults have ciders they enjoy on hot summer days. What’s the difference? We’re glad you asked. While both beverages are composed of crushed fruits, ordinarily the apple, hard cider is fermented so it is carbonated and alcoholic (the best aspect). Ciders vary from taste to color, and we’ve found a few standouts that you’ll regret not trying this summer.

    We’re not the type of people who need a reason to drink. If we’re breathing that’s reason enough. But for those who need more, here you go:

    1. Tiddleswift: Taylor Swift and Thomas Hiddleston were caught canoodling on a Rhode Island beach. It’s a strong move from both PR teams that will likely lead to a highly populated/slightly upsetting Tumblr page. Here’s hoping your summer romance is more realistic.
