Toast to Technology with An Ancient Cell Phone Flask

bev-burry

Probably one of the more creative flasks on the market, this Bev-Burry Flask is almost the perfect way to get your afternoon fix in the office. Notice we said, almost. With everyone all over the new iPhone, chances are this ancient-looking Blackberry wannabe would get called out, but you could definitely make friends by sharing the booze smuggled within this plastic “faux-n.” Ahem.

The flask holds 3 oz of liquor, ensuring you have enough spirits to get your Irish coffee on or to just sip straight up. No judgment. It even comes with a hand-strap and filling funnel to ensure you don’t lose any of that precious nectar. Slip this filled bad boy into your jacket pocket, go about your work day, and I’m sure no one will notice that Jalapeño tequila on your breath. Just be cool.

This is Jalapeño-Infused Tequila

Jalapeno-tequila

Give your margarita on the rocks a kick in the pants with Jalapeño Tequila.

Made with 100% agave, this oddball liquor is infused with jalapeños grown in the mountain town of Tequila, Mexico and is produced by Tanteo. We’re thinking this could make for a badass mango margarita with a bite or a killer chicken marinade.

To take it to the next level, try taking it as shots and chasing it with sugar and slices of actual jalapeño. Just kidding. Don’t do that. It’ll probably sting, a lot.

Here’s a Starbucks Iced Chai Tea Latte Tequila Hack

starbucks-tequila

It was during a trip in Palms Springs that I realized Starbucks drinks are really just caffeinated cocktail mixes. It happened by the pool as I reached for some wine stuffed in my bag. As my fingers clasped around the bottle, my friend Anjelica shoved an iced chai latte in my face and smirked, “Drink this.”

I protested, thinking it was your standard Starbucks in a cup, until she finally convinced me to take a sip. Oh, how I was so terribly terribly wrong. First was the unexpected hit of tequila, then came the warm aroma of the chai tea — cinnamon, cloves and sweet milk. The tequila served as more of a enhancement to the drink and wasn’t offensive to the palate at all.

My friend happily informed me that she had poured 2 entire shots of tequila into the medium-sized drink.

Again, this is Starbucks I’m talking about here, not some mixology frou frou. The best part is that you can easily tote this drink around in public and sticklers will be none the wiser . Not that we condone that. Of course not.

Chipotle Introduces Handmade Patron Margaritas Just in Time for Cinco de Mayo

r-CHIPOTLE-MARGARITAS-large570

Looks like Chipotle appreciates genuine margaritas just as much as the rest of us — at least enough to completely revamp the Chipotle margarita experience just in time for Cinco de Mayo. Chipotle has actually served margaritas since they opened their first store in 1993, but the drinks were made from a mix and “weren’t as delicious as they could be,” according to Chipotle’s chief marketing officer. Customers looking to try Chipotle’s heightened alcohol experience will be able to choose between either Patron or Sauza tequila, and every single margarita will be made by hand with a mixture of lemon juice, lime juice, and organic agave nectar. The new margaritas will hit 900 Chipotle stores on April 29th, and will cost anywhere between $6.50 and $8, depending on the location and whether Patron or Sauza is your tequila of choice.

‘Tequila Buffet’ for Convenient Mouthwatering Tomfoolery

Be warned, though, the “mouth-watering” part of the Tequila Buffet must be left to the imagination unless and until you are willing to shell out the 90 bucks for this to-be-boozy masterpiece. The Tequila Buffet is crafted from “beams of wormy chestnut salvaged from dismantled barns and homes of the Appalachians.” On the plus side, for your money, you get glasses, salt bowls, a cutting board, a paring knife and a spoon, so everything is all cute (or manly) and matching.

And just look at how aesthetically pleasing it is! It even has little grooves for your limes. I hate tequila, but if someone served it to me like this, I might be tempted to acquiesce.

These Margarita Cake Pops Are Made With Tequila & Limes

When somebody offers you a Margarita Cake Pop, you don’t ask questions: You just eat it. How often do the words margarita and cake come together in the same sentence, let alone inside your mouth?

All you need to know is that tequila has made it into the baking arena to create cake pops with a soft, chewy center that tastes like sweet, sweet margarita. But in the event that you need to know how to make them in order to gorge on an entire batch yourself —  and, if you must, to take to a party to share with everyone —  love + butter outlined the steps to make this alcoholic treat on a stick. But, please, eat responsibly.

George Clooney to Launch a Tequila Line Called ‘Casamigos’

George Clooney has teamed up with Cindy Crawford’s restaurateur husband Rande Gerber for a line of tequila called “Casamigos.” Unlike recent celebrity endeavors involving bottling their own Wine (think: Drew Barrymore, Antonion Banderas, AC/DC), Clooney went the tequila route, and according to sources, Casamigos is a Mexican tequila that Gerber and Clooney have been sipping on for years.

Little else is known about the tequila venture at this time, other than both Clooney and Gerber hoping to keep the tequila at a decent price point, and that it was named after the homes they own in Mexico. More on Casamigos as information becomes available.
