Our footprints are notorious for following us this season with tracks of mud. Although it may be a bit of a drag, the melting season gives way to some bright colors after months of winter hibernation. So, while we utilize our umbrellas let’s hold out in anticipation for some May blooms. In the meantime, while we listen to the pitter-patter of a rainy day against the window, jump in puddle or two while singing in the rain, and enjoy these delicious beverages!

    The Hip-Hop and R&B industry is certainly no stranger to boozing! Alcohol has not only inspired several Billboard hits, but also made some artists a pretty penny.

    Earlier this month the team over at Redd’s decided to make the statement that cider is not simply for the fall season with the release of 2 new flavors, Redd’s Green Apple Ale and Redd’s Wicked Mango. These flavors came about just in time for the warmer weather, and we were lucky enough to get our hands on both flavors for a little taste test.

    Today we would like to pay tribute to one of our favorite mixers. For over a century, Coca-Cola has been the soul mate of Jack Daniel’s, classically known as “Jack and Coke.” The soda pop is also the perfect disguise for cheap liquor, and was our saving grace during those budgeted college years! To show our appreciation for the delicious mixer, have decided to share a few special cocktails in honor of America’s favorite soft drink. Cheers!

    Beer is not just for the boys, but a lot of beer advertising seems to think it is. Enter the newest beer from Brazil: Cerveja Feminista. Instead of bikini-clad bombshells, the simple label for Feminista features the symbol for gender equality in an effort to get people talking.
