Some people just can’t get enough Bourbon. There are candles you can light to fill your room with the magical scents of the rick house. There are Pappy Van Winkle barrel fermented cigars you can smoke that have literally been paired for you. And now Duke Cannon brings you a bar of soap containing Buffalo Trace Bourbon and ground corn so you can bathe with your favorite spirit – the Big American Bourbon Soap. I had originally intended this to be a video hands-on review, but my wife would have none of that. You’re welcome.
Ok, so a little tease using our bourbon review format but what is this book all about? It’s a fun way to approach pairing cocktails and music. It takes things a little over the top but if you are going to throw a listening party I think this offers a nice blueprint to follow. The book offers tips on what bar items to stock, how to prepare a wide variety of cocktails and suggestions on when to play what albums. They offer more then 50 recipes that use 2 or 3 ingredients, so you can choose how complex you want to get with the pairings.
The Magic Flask is a stainless steel flask that uses technology related to bioresonance. The flask is specially tuned with electromagnetic waves so that water molecules within liquid placed inside will be qualitatively changed. As far as how the technology works, that is about all the explanation that comes with the flask. The flask instructions state that it works best with spirits.
