Is it possible to get more irresponsible? Vodka infused whipped cream!


Just when we thought, that the industry could not sink deeper - to market alcohol to target groups, which are far below the legal drinking age… +support irresponsible alcohol consume…

Yes - it all started with fruit and spice flavored vodkas - which is quite a tradition in "vodka countries" like Poland and Russia… then it got "more creative" - untraditional fruits, vanilla, chocolate vodka, you name it.

Just in the couple of last years, it went to ridiculous [especially, if you think about the effect on our youth]: PB&J, popcorn, sugared donut, whipped cream, marshmallows or s'mores!

You also should not forget the development of alcopops aka RTD [ready to drink] - like Smirnoff Ice or Bacardi Breezer - easy to drink and easy to abuse.

Hey - the industry just found a new way - lets call it the deepest deep, to get people abuse alcohol: enriching whip cream cans with vodka.
And hey, there are at least two producer, who found a way to express their poor taste and poor judgement.

Congratulations! Is the next step baby food???


Now, don't get me wrong - I infused myself Bourbon with popcorn with a really good result. However I don't market it to a younger crowd and I don't want to make alcohol more palatable, to people who don't like booth!

The industry has definitely an unique responsibility, which they apparently don't exercise!

How to use citric acid - and why you might not want to use it anyway!

To be honest, I shied away of this topic, because I think, people can misinterpret this - big time. I don't want to be part of the problem - I want to be part of the solution!  But when Chris, over at A Bar Above  discussed this subject- I literally could not resist to join into "the discussion". Here is the video: I - however take a bit slower approach than Chris. What is citric acid? Chemical Compound Citric acid is a weak organic acid with the formula C6H8O7. It is a natural preservative/conservative and is also used to add an acidic or sour taste to foods and drinks. Wikipedia Formula: C6H8O7 Molar Mass: 192.124 g/mol Melting Point: 153C Density: 1.66 g/cm3 Boiling point: 175C Soluble in: Water Why is it controversial? In my "mixology world" it is controversial, as citric acid is the stuff, which makes the nightmarish sour mix [ preferably in powder form ] sour. Yeah - citric acid is the main ingredient in one of the most

"Monin Rocks!" - Really?

R ussell S anchez MONIN UAE MONIN Rocks @ HARD ROCK CAFE Dubai  — with   Rhiandro Gardiner  and Louie Aquias  at  Hard Rock Cafe . I have seen this on my Facebook timeline. And well... I wanted to write about Monin since quite a long time, but haven't. However this message was a catalyst, to speak up. It is already a couple of months ago, that I routinely checked the ingredient list of a Monin bottle. ...and was shocked.... Point is, that I have always defended Monin against my US colleagues as decent brand. At least with the products they offered here in the Middle East and in Europe; they came from their factory in France. Most of the ingredients [except lets say in Blue Curacao syrup] were natural. Long time ago, somebody from Monin explained, that this is due to the quite strict regulations in France for syrup - there it is a family culture to drink syrup sweetened water/seltzer. And off course especially for the k

What is the best cranberry juice in the bar?

A good friend of me "whatsapp'ed" me today and asked for my expertise: "What is the best cranberry juice?" I would loved to just let him know the brand - however it is not that easy. What do we understand of cranberry juice? One of the biggest [maybe the  biggest producer] of cranberry products is Ocean Spray. And: it is well regarded. Problem is: it is not a juice! Wait - what? Ocean Spray doesn't produce a juice - they produce a juice cocktail - which translates into a lot of water, a lot of sugar, some taste-balancers as citric acid [nothing against this really] and a minuscule portion of juice - usually around 3%. Yes they have something which is called 100% juice. Which is on one hand true, on the other the biggest deception ever. Because you don't get 100% cranberry - you get a mixture of juices of concentrate - most of the time apple and white grape and a bit of cranberry. There are also some other brands around, which might feature a h
