Jeppson's Malört Face Photo Pool on flickr
Malört is the name of a Swedish style of schnapps which is flavored with wormwood. The smell and taste is musty and extremely bitter. Malört is popularly alleged to be a cure for indigestion.
From the label of Jeppson's Malört: “Most first-time drinkers of Jeppson Malort reject our liquor. Its strong, sharp taste is not for everyone. Our liquor is rugged and unrelenting (even brutal) to the palate. During almost 60 years of American distribution, we found only 1 out of 49 men will drink Jeppson Malort. During the lifetime of our founder, Carl Jeppson was apt to say, 'My Malort is produced for that unique group of drinkers who disdain light flavor or neutral spirits”
It tastes like Bug spray, with Robitussin, or varnish remover. With herbs

Drink bourbon! Did you know that drinking bourbon can give you sense of “feeling” warm, even though your body is actually getting colder? Like that famous Belgian therapist always says, “It’s the feeling that counts!”

Fifty States of Wine
Touring with the Veuve Clicquot Bentley
"...After a lengthy tasting session where we tried 20 wines, my drunken friends encouraged me to drink from the spit bucket. I took a whiff and instantly realized it couldn't taste as bad as the red from Cape Cod, which was the worst beverage of any kind I'd ever tasted--and I had to swallow barium for an upper-GI test. As I took a swig and swirled it around to gross out my friends, I thought it tasted like America. It was sweet, funky, simple, aggressive and not as bad as you'd been led to believe…" Joel Stein set out to taste one wine from all 50 states

The 14 ounce "pint" glass
Dan Bornstein, a.k.a. “Danfuzz”, owns the domain name “Milk.com”. Despite many indications to the contrary, many people seem to think that the site has something to do with the people that do those "got milk?" commercials and "milk mustache" ads, or that it is somehow related to the dairy industry at all. Well, to finally clear up any questions on the matter, it doesn't, and it's not.
For a while, he politely replied to the misdirected mail, then he ignored it for a while. Finally, he decided to have a little fun and mail back usually-silly responses

Ramune (ラムネ) is a carbonated soft drink sold in Japan. It is widely known for the distinctive design of its bottle, often called Codd-neck bottles after the inventor, Hiram Codd.
They are made of glass and sealed with a marble; the marble is held in place by the pressure of the carbon dioxide in the drink. To open the bottle, a device to push the marble inward is provided with the bottle. The marble is pushed inside the neck of the bottle where it rattles around while drinking. Two little glass nodes inside the bottle allow the drinker to hook the marble in place while drinking.
People trying Ramune for the first time sometimes find it difficult to drink, as it takes practice to learn to stop the marble from blocking the flow. Ramune is one of the modern symbols of summer in Japan and is widely consumed during warm festival days and nights. Empty bottles are usually collected for recycling at stalls where it is sold. (We drank it at a Shabu-Shabu place in Rowland Heights the other night. It wasn't special, except of the marble)

Got Milk bottles?
"It can be hard to implement change, and one of the hardest things about it is to recognize the need for change in the first place. It's easy to take the status quo as, well, the status quo. This is especially true for things that seem like they've just been the way they are forever..."
