Pickle Juice - The New Way to Wash Down Your Whisky

Victoria Ferran | Posted 11.04.2014 | UK Lifestyle

When it comes to whisky, we like to keep things simple. Neat, on the rocks, or mixed with coke - that's how we know and love it. New York Magazine's food blog Grub Street echoed this recently when it described flavoured whisky as 'The Beginning of The End' and filed it under Desecrations. I mean, why try to fix something which isn't broken?

Four Beers to Try If You Don't Like Beer

Beer is still one of our most popular drinks, but in many people's eyes it lacks the sophistication and versatility of other beverages such as wine. In recent years, it's seriously fallen out of fashion, associated with either laddish binge-drinking culture or the cagoule-sporting CAMRA fans.

The London Cocktail Craze

London just can't get enough of cocktails at the moment and we don't mean cheeky vimto - oh no, we're talking artisanal tipples. Bartenders have taken a leaf out of the food world - quite literally in the case of one West London bar using foraged Mojito ingredients.

Walking around the touristy area of Colaba seemed like luxury compared to the rest of India. It was not until we left Colaba when we realized what life in Mumbai was really like.

West Hollywood - A Dreamer's Travel Guide

It's not often that one finds themselves completely at home in a strange place, yet the streets and silhouettes of the city of West Hollywood (or WeHo as it's affectionately referred to by Angelenos) feel intoxicatingly familiar and simultaneously seductive. My short stay is retreating hastily; as my plans over-flow in my mind.

A Barman's Confession: Bar Etiquette for Blokes

When your mum taught you manners, she covered all the basics. No elbows on the table, please, thank you and covering your mouth when you cough. But when it came to teaching drinking etiquette, mine fell short (sorry mum).

Another month, another stag do completed - although I've had an incredible time on all of the stag do's I've been on this year, this was perhaps the most challenging as I was best man and so had to organise everything.

A Barman's Confession: When Business Meets Pleasure

I've often said that planning a party sorts the men from the boys. It's either a total shambles, with relations strained and blood shed; or as easy as, well, organising a piss up in a brewery. And as a barman working in bars that sees every single type of party, I've been privy to a few 'do's (and the very definition of don'ts) in my time.

Why Aren't Women Allowed to Drink Fruity Cocktails Anymore?

Jack L. Williams | Posted 18.05.2013 | UK Lifestyle
Jack L. Williams

So here is my confession: too many women feel they need to drink like men. It's something we see time and time again at the bar, always the flick of the eye towards the other drinks being pulled and then the order for something meaty in a pint glass. When did this happen? What happened to girls being allowed to drink fruity cocktails? Is feminism now brandishing a pint glass rather than a bra?

What January Detox ?

Willy Borrell

The latest research shows that the concept of detoxing is deeply flawed at best - and at worse actually harmful. You see the liver cleanses and detoxes itself on a daily basis and is pretty damn efficient at doing its job.

The truth is, drinks really can reflect your mood-or completely contrast it-so something a little bit different can not only take you to a new taste sensation, it can transport you to a completely new place. Sometimes you need something unusual to do this.

No Ice? Stick to the Beer

The real disappointment is that it's often just one simple step that's overlooked, and that's the ice. You might've seen many bars putting a big focus on their ice- triple frozen, pride of place illuminated blocks glistening like glass, ice blocks cut into diamonds... the bar world has gone ice mad.
