Liquor not available in the US

Liquor not available in the US It’s been a long day in a new city. The sun is going down, you’ve found a fantastic little bar, and all you want to do is to try the local spirit. However, you have no idea what it is. Don’t worry, you’re not the only one who has stuck to the familiar while travelling. We love trying new cuisines, but we get a little bit freaked out when it comes to the strong stuff. Forewarned is forearmed, so educate yourself on the many spirits available in the world, including those you won’t easily find in the United States. As a disclaimer: These spirits are not widely available in the US in your…

What bartenders think of cocktails

What bartenders think of cocktails As bartenders, we can be a judgy lot. It’s not intentional, it’s just what years of being a fly on the wall has taught us. At the end of the day, you should order what you want because you like it. But if you are curious, read on to see what your bartender really thinks of your cocktail order. 1. Long Island Iced Tea A post shared by Finchs Pub (@finchspub) on Jun 7, 2018 at 9:49am PDT Amateur hour. If you order a Long Island, it is typically for one of two reasons. 1) You don’t know what else to order. 2) You want to get drunk as fast as possible. There is…

Drunk guy hikes up mountain

Drunk guy hikes up mountain This is one drunken tale that we think most people can agree: we’ve not all been there. According to Italian news outlet La Stampa, an Estonian man, known as Pavel, took a wrong turn while heading home to the Italian resort of Cervinia and ended up ascending an Alpine mountain. It was reported that Pavel believed he was sauntering up a rather snowy street, instead of climbing up one of the resort’s ski runs towards the summit. After reaching one of the venues that tower over the resort, bar and restaurant Igloo, Pavel managed to break in to the establishment and find some bottled water from the bar to rehydrate from his hike. Unknown…

Being a sober traveler

Being a sober traveler The through-line of my twenties was my passion for travel, and along with it, my ever-increasing passion for booze. As a Peace Corps Volunteer in Tanzania, holidays and get-togethers with other volunteers were fueled by homemade fruit wine from giant plastic buckets and Kilimanjaro beers. While backpacking through South America, I stopped to work in a party hostel bar for a month, the perks being a free bed and unlimited cheap booze and debauchery. In Europe, wine tasting often became wine guzzling, and Morocco was a pain in the ass because alcohol was hard to find and expensive. I always loved traveling, but as my 11-year-love affair with alcohol progressed, exploring new places became less…

the world’s booziest countries

the world’s booziest countries The holiday drinking season can be overwhelming. Drinking with your least favorite relatives is one thing, but why are copious amounts of sugar, caffeine, booze and/or eggs so crucial to every holiday cocktail? It turns out that not every country in the world is as dedicated to alcohol as those in the West (especially Eastern Europe). Below is an infographic revealing which countries consume the highest number of liters of alcohol per person per year. Light tan indicates 1-3 liters per person, while dark purple indicates 15-18 liters. Photo: VoucherCloud The top 12 “booziest countries” Photo: VoucherCloud Since drinking is looked down upon in Islam, it makes sense that the countries with the lowest consumption…

happy hour popularity worldwide

happy hour popularity worldwide Happy hours are amazing. They might be the only thing that my grandmother and I can both enjoy with the same enthusiasm and I love it (cus, hey, she’s a nice lady). As such, I always appreciate it when I visit a new city and find it loaded with generous and diverse happy hours. Usually I don’t learn about these until last minute, so it’s good that Redfin put in the work to find out where happy hours are most popular based on 4 million Instagram posts from 2010 to today. If that sounds too easy, they went the extra mile and crunched the numbers by US cities, states, and even countries. The results are…

Top live music venues in Portland

Top live music venues in Portland Portland’s music scene has never been big enough or nationally popular enough to define its own genre, like Seattle with grunge or LA with rap, and despite the city’s massive growth spurt, it seems like this is not going to change anytime soon. However, this lack of being pigeonholed has offered Portland’s quirky, independent venues an unparalleled freedom to book whomever they please to do whatever they feel like. Wandering down East or West Burnside on a Friday night reveals a staging ground for a new generation of comedians, rockers, rappers and performance artists who play regularly in intimate venues on the cheap just to hone their craft. These venues rarely reveal the…

Drink with style in South Korea

Drink with style in South Korea THOUGH it’s not common knowledge for many outsiders, South Korea has a pretty serious drinking culture. There are three main types of alcohol available for under $2 per bottle: makju (beer), soju, and makgeolli. Here are the best ways to enjoy them in South Korea. 1. Noraebang Photo: James Creegan Unlike karaoke in Japan, where nearly every venue is family friendly save the excess drinking, noraebang in Korea is a coin toss. Seemingly normal establishments in big cities still have the option to use X-rated videos as you sing and to hire “helpers” if you want — help. However, it’s easy to still have an authentic Korean night with songs and booze: just…

Drinking in public in the US

Drinking in public in the US WHILE PEOPLE in my home country of France walk around with beer glasses purchased from the booze stand at their kids’ soccer games, the good people of North America have to deal with strict open container and public drinking laws. Except in Quebec (those Frenchies know what’s good for them), in Canada, it is illegal to have an open container of alcohol or drink alcohol in public spaces, and the same goes for the most of the US states. That said, there are exceptions to the US public drinking laws that anyone who enjoys a cold one beyond the walls of their home should be aware of. The Huffpost created the map below…
