While in California last week, I had the chance to visit an old friend up in the wine country and tour an outstanding vineyard. Newton was established in 1977 after co-founder Su Hua fell off her horse on Spring Mountain (the vineyard’s site), and was rescued by a rancher who conveniently told her that the land was for sale. Needless to say, she and her husband Peter Newton bought the property and the rest is history. Only about 2500 people get to visit the winery each year, so I felt honored to be one the few. The wine is fantastic, and White House approved.
Random fact: The Vineyard was featured in Japanese Sideways.
While we’re not fruity vodka drinkers, Absolut Berriaçai is a perfect way to get a weekend brunch started. Even drinking it straight with a side of pancakes (trust us).
I had a chance to drink some ROOT over the weekend. As you can see from the empty bottle, it was popular. If you can find it, definitely pick up a bottle or two. A nice video relating the history of the drink is after the jump.

According to India Times, a Russian Professor has evolved a technique that turns alcohol into powder, thereby allowing it to be packed into in pills. This is a really good/bad idea.
“Dry vodka can be wrapped in paper and carried around in a pocket or a bag. Vodka in form of a pill would come in handy at parties when “consumers” would be able to calculate their exact required dosage.”
If Max Fish and Pianos banged, this would be the spawn.

This is so awesome! the Disposable Flask, damn I wish I thought of that one. I can not begin to count the number of times I felt ripped off at a concert or sports event for a the price of a drink. Now you don’t have to worry about your monogrammed flask getting confiscated either. Pick up a set of 3 for $15.00. from all places Restoration Hardware!
Designed by Alexander Purcell, the Sake Bomb is a based on a “juxtaposition of the Fugu Fish (Blowfish),… and a WW II sea mine.” They come in blue, black, orange, and white, and retail for $98.
I used to do this on paper cups using a red sharpie. Cheeming Boey uses a black sharpie on styrofoam cups and the result is much better.
