Through increasing collagen intake, the anti-aging ingredients in Anti-Agin are said to make you look younger while drinking it. While this seems a little bit too good to be true, what we do know is that if you aren’t taking gin and tonics out of your diet anytime soon, get your hands on a bottle of Anti-Agin and get a little skin-boost while you’re sippin. read more

Swimming pools may be used by some for physical exercise and social interaction, but we appreciate them the most when we’re sitting next too one, sipping on one (or all) of these poolside themed cocktails: read more

What other sweet treat is traditionally known for literally bringing people together, during the holidays, significant events or elsewhere. However, not all pie flavors take the cake, if you will. Today celebrates one of the more classic (and palatable) pie fillings that put other fruit-flavored desserts to shame – good ol’ blueberry. Because pies take a substantial amount of time to construct, cook and (most annoyingly) cool, we’re going to switch things up by celebrating the day with – you guessed it – blueberry pie-themed booze. read more
