No, we’re not talking O’Doul’s here, we’re talking about electrolyte-enhanced beer. A group of Australian scientists added electrolytes to two commercial beers to make, in essence, hydrating, hangover-free brew. There are a few caveats, however, including the fact that the idea really doesn’t work with high alcohol beers so you can’t expect to down a few 10% ABV imperial stouts and wake up feeling like a million bucks. The researchers claimed no one could taste the difference between the treated beers and untreated beers so you won’t have to worry about some odd Gatorade taste after a sip. “Scientist,” Austrailian for genius.

Pappy-Van-Winkle-Hot-Sauce

Pappy Van Winkle is the name in bourbon. Bottles have sent drinkers on wild goose chases and left others with empty bank accounts. While we can’t help you procure any of that elusive elixir, we can bring a little Pappy into your life in another way. Pappy Van Winkle Hot Sauce is aged in actual Pappy Van Winkle bourbon barrels. The distillery teamed with friends at Midland Ghost to make this flavorful hot sauce, which features the latter’s prized first generation Ghost Peppers. After the sauce was made, it was left to age in barrels that once held Pappy. That means you have a sauce that’s rich, oaky, and full of flavorful heat. Use it on meats, veggies, or, if you’re a special brand of crazy, just drink it straight from the bottle. It’s that good.
