Roosh V on 7 things a Guy can do to Improve his game RIGHT NOW

Here's the thing, this is primarily a cocktail blog - if you're a regular reader at some point you will probably find yourself in a bar. What do you do when the girl of your dreams walks in? Do you suddenly get all Beta (boo!) or handle the situation like an Alpha(yay!)?

Roosh V has dropped another classic excerpt from his debut novel Bang (I still have my autographed copy - whassamater, you don't like freebies? I will re-package it as part of other goodies to be given away at a later date) on the 7 things a Guy can do to Improve his game right now.

The first three things he touched on:

  1. Stop Leaning In
  2. Stop asking for Permission
  3. Memorize one excellent, breezy story

See these and the rest of the list in detail at his site here. Above all remember this, Leaning In is Creepy. Stop it already.


G’vine Gin is … Gintastic!

G'vine ginGintastic! That was my first thought when I took my first sip of G'vine gin, the first-ever Gin made from grape spirit in the Cognac region of France. The grape spirit comes from a rare green grapevine flower that exists for only a short time before maturing into grape berries.

The perfume-like floral aroma makes it's presence known but is not overpowering - and the botanicals in G'vine gin (ginger root, liquorice, green cardamom, cassia bark, coriander, juniper berries, cubeb berries, nutmeg and lime) result in a very pleasant, spicy and somewhat "sweetish" flavor.

G'vine is a small-batch gem, and it shows - definitely another fine gin for people who think they don't like gin. G'vine retails between $35 - $40. This is one gintastic gin that you should enjoy neat, or in simple cocktails that will allow the characteristics of the gin to shine through.

Use Partida Agave Nectar for a Healthier, Diet Margarita

partida agave nectarI'd like to introduce you to an important and extremely versatile product from Partida TequilaPartida agave nectar (at least in my humble opinion). I received a sample a short while ago along with their tequilas - but I purposely delayed writing about the nectar because I felt it deserved a seperate post.

Partida agave nectar is a blue agave based organic, natural fructose sweetener. It's sweeter than sugar and also has a reported lower glycemic index rating than sugar, honey or maple syrup. The glycemic index rating of agave nectar is 11, sugar's is 100. That's 1/10th the glycemic index of sugar!

Partida nectar is water soluble, which means that it will dissolve instantly in drinks and mixes well with other ingredients in cocktails. Sometimes I can't be bothered to make simple syrup, it's nice to have an alternative readily available, especially a healthier one. There's no aftertaste from the nectar because it's all natural.

So we have an all natural product, with a lower glycemic index rating than sugar and which also tastes sweeter than honey? Diabetics and non-diabetics alike rejoice!
