Cocktail ice is something that ethanol aficionados can get very, very fancy with. However, unless you're a nugget ice enthusiast, you really only need one cube for your home bar: a really big one.

Happy weekend, and welcome back to 3-Ingredient Happy Hour, the weekly drink column featuring super simple yet delicious libations. This week we're making a mimosa for mum — a "mumosa", if you will — and we're making it kind of fancy.
A belated May the Fourth be with you, my nerds, and welcome back to 3-Ingredient Happy Hour, the weekly drink column featuring super simple, yet delicious libations. We're drinking a little early this week, in honour of a most hallowed day.
The drinking vegan must live a life of constant vigilance. Though beer and wine themselves rarely contain any animal products or byproducts, they're often filtered using isinglass (fish bladders) to remove yeast and other solids. Fortunately, Guinness is moving away from this practice, and vegans can now enjoy a pint of the stout in the comfort of their favourite pub.
You guys know I love a shiny new kitchen appliance, but it just doesn't make sense to purchase a Juicero. I love fresh juice as much as the next person who drinks it to feel slightly better about her life choices, but a $US400 ($536) juice squeezer just isn't in the cards.
While cocktails aren't exactly good for you — alcohol is a toxin after all — some drinks can be more dangerous than others. These dicey craft cocktail ingredients can be found in bars all over the place.
Happy weekend, everyone, and welcome back to 3-Ingredient Happy Hour, the weekly drink column featuring super simple, yet delicious libations. I'm feeling a bit bitter, and would therefore like to introduce you to my good friend Ferrari & Soda.
I've just sat down with my third cup of tea for the day. Technically it might be considered my fourth, as my work mug is the largest one I could find. Often it feels like a good cuppa is the only thing that gets me through a tough day — and even on a good day I still enjoy the ritual. But does tea's feel-good appeal come down to more than just personal preference?
Wine stains suck, especially when it's red wine on your brand new white shirt. There are lots of ways to banish such stains, but think about pouring yourself some milk next time it happens to you.
Greetings everyone, and welcome back to 3-Ingredient Happy Hour, the weekly drink column featuring super simple, yet delicious libations. This week we'll be drinking a Pimm's Royale, because I just got back from the United Kingdom, and am still on a bit of a holiday high.
Boxed wine has a bad rap. People look down on it because it doesn't come in a fancy bottle, and assume the contents are nasty and cheap. While that may be true for some brands, a lot of boxed wine is just as good or better than the stuff you drink with a nice dinner. Plus, it's easy to transport, stays fresh longer, costs less, and is better for the environment.
Greetings everyone, and welcome back to 3-Ingredient Happy Hour, the weekly drink column featuring super simple, yet delicious libations. This week we're adding a little something to the kalimotxo, a super drinkable mixture of cola and wine commonly consumed by the youths of Spain.
The other day I was picking out a bottle of slightly-overpriced bubbly to take to a friend, when I realised the bottle I had settled on didn't come pre-chilled. Luckily, the store had a wine chiller - a swirling water bath that cooled my Champagne down to serving temp in mere minutes. "I wish I had one of these at home," I thought, not realising that I already did.
