  • Wild Turkey Bourbon Whiskeywild-turkey-bourbon-whiskey

    American's don't need to be lectured on Bourbon, but still, let's put it in record like all other spirits. A Bourbon in American spirit is a barrel-aged distilled liquor made primarily from corn. The name might have been derived from the French Bourbon dynasty, or from Bourbon County in Kentucky, or Bourbon Street in New Orleans, both named after the French Dynasty.

    Technically, most whiskey made in America are legally classified as Bourbon, although Bourbon is in spirit a Southern Whiskey with special connection to Kentucky. Note than although Tennessee Whiskey is classified as Bourbon, Tennessee distilleries do not prefer their whiskey to be unique and referred to as Tennessee Whiskey only.

    Distilling came to Kentucky in the late 18rth Century with the Scots, Scot-Irish and other settlers including English, Welsh, German and French, and they brought with them their distilling techniques and ageing processes in charred oak barrels. The charring is what gives the Bourbon the brownish colour and distinctive taste.

    To be a legal Bourbon, a whiskey has to meet the following criteria

        Produced in the United States and Territories (Puerto Rico) and the District of Columbia
        Made from a grain mixture that is at least 51% corn
        Aged in new, charred oak containers
        Distilled to no more than 160 (U.S.) proof (80% alcohol by volume)
        Entered into the container for aging at no more than 125 proof (62.5% alcohol by volume)
        Bottled (like other whiskeys) at 80 proof or more (40% alcohol by volume)

    Tennessee Whiskey meets all the requirements too, but they prefer keeping it distinct.

  • Corona Lagercorona-lager

    Lager is a beer that has been brewed at low temperatures using a technique knows as bottom fermenting in which the bottom fermenting type of yeast is added to the brew at a lower temperature and the yeast cells settle at the bottom of the fermenting liquid and it is a slower process than the top fermenting process used in brewing Ales.

    The word Lager is a German word for "Storage" and it's origin is continental Europe while Ales are British in origin. Lager is light coloured and highly carbonated.

What was the largest cocktail ever made?

The largest cocktail that is recorded by the Guinness Book of World Records is a 39,746.82 litres Margarita, created by Nick Nicora in Sacramento, California, USA on 13th July, 2012. The cocktail was made in a large cocktail shaker.

    Beer Glassware vary with national and local traditions and even with practical requirements like serving measures, fill lines, breakage avoidance in washing, easy storage and avoidance of sticking when stacked.
    The international beer glassware styles are Pilsner Glass and Pint Glass.

    A Pilsner is used mostly for light beers like pale lager or pilsner. The tall slender and evenly tapered glasses are usually smaller than a pint glass or mug. and are usually 200 ml, 250 ml, 300 ml , 330 ml or 400 ml, while in Europe a 500 ml is more of a standard.

    A Pint glass differs by the measure of a pint by country, In UK, the imperial pint ( 568 ml ) is the measure of a serving of beer and a half pint glass is 284 ml, quarter pint glasses of 142 ml also exist.

    The common shapes of a pint glass are, conical glasses which are around 6 inches tall with the base tapering by about 1 inch diameter at the rim from the base width.

    Then there is the Nonic glass. which is a conical glass with a bulge near the rim, the bulge prevents glasses sticking when stacked and also gives the glass strength and prevents chipping at the rim.

    Jug glasses or the Dimple Mug is the common beer mug with a handle. Although the dimpled surface is a rare seen now, since washing has become automatic and slipping from hand while washing is not a problem anymore. These beer mugs with handles are making a comeback in the UK.

  • Simple Guide to Cocktail Glasswareany-glass

    When there is no specific glass suggested for a cocktail, it's up to you to chose a glass.
    Either you just go ahead and serve using any glass available to you following these simple rules
    A. Go for Tall or Collins Glasses, Highball Glasses or even Hurricane Glasses for cocktails with loads of non-alcoholic mixes, and those that require crushed or cubed ices,
    B. But if your cocktail is aromatic and liqueur based, and has a complex character that must reach the nose use a wide mouthed Cocktail Glass.
    C. Red Wine Glasses for cocktails that have a Red Wine as the base spirit. Red Wine Glasses have a wider mouth and a long stem, so that the wine can be swirled an aerated to release the aroma while the long stem keeps the fingers away and avoid quick warming of the wine.
    D. White Wine Glasses for cocktails with a White Wine base, since White Wines must not be aerated as much as a Red Wines, since they oxidise fast when in contact with air, White Wine glassware, in contrast to the wide mouthed bowl of a Red Wine Glassware, is narrow with a narrow mouth. A White Wine has much lighter and delicate notes and the narrow mouth and less surface area in contact with air helps retain the aroma.
    E. If your cocktail is based on a Sparkling Wine like Champagne then a Flute Glass is more suitable since a Sparkling Wine is a White Wine with a secondary fermentation that produces the bubbles, and the narrow mouth flute prevents the bubbles from escaping.
    F. If it's winter and you are in the mood for some hot cocktails like the Irish Coffee or Hot Toddy, go for the Irish Coffee Glass, it has a heat resistant glass and a handle.
    G. Martini Glasses for Martinis or "Tinis" in general, but since these glasses have fallen off of favour these days, a Cocktail Glass will be good too.
    H. IF you are serving Margaritas, don't look for Margarita Glass if you don't have one at home, Double Old Fashioned Glass or other glasses are more common these days, for serving Margaritas.
    I. If you are the adventurous one, and are serving shots or shooters, of course the Shot Glass is your choice of glass,
    J. Finally, if you are going all out and serving depth charges and car bomb shots, all you need is a Double Old Fashioned Glass or a Beer Mug for the beer and a shot glass to drop the bomb in.
