Anders’ Handcrafted Vodka 100% Colorado Review

Anders’ Handcrafted Vodka is distilled in small batches using a state of the art still. The source used for this vodka is sweet corn from the Olathe region of Colorado. Farmers here use snowmelt to irrigate. The corn kernels are smaller than the kernel of regular corn and have a concentrated flavor. It is analogous to the size of wine grapes to table grapes. The cost is much higher, but the quality of the corn is exceptional. Harvesting of the corn is done without pesticides and the corn is naturally Gluten Free. This corn is usually hand picked rather than machine harvested because of the soft nature of the corn.
The water used in irrigation, distilling and to cut the distillate begins as snowmelt and for the processing and cutting is then purified. While many distilleries use purified water, few begin with anything as pristine as ours.
The filtration process is another big difference between this vodka and others. They filter the vodka once and coarsely, they make it this way to leave more of the oils and to have a more flavorful vodka. This creates a weightier vodka.
The corn is brought in whole kernels from the farms and milled on site. This is important because pre-milled grains can become oxidized and lose much of the flavor. It is fermented right after milling sent straight to the fermenters to again guard against oxidation. The fermented liquid is then batch distilled. Unlike continuous distillation this leaves more of the original character. It is distilled correctly one time, and the heads and tails are cut. We cut 30% of the distillate to ensure only the heart of the distillate remains.
The label features mountains a depiction of the Maroon Bells and Pyramid Peak in the Colorado Rockies, which is a backdrop to the distillery.

Highly recommended order a bottle of Anders’ Handcrafted Vodka here

Reed’s Ginger Brew Review & Moscow Mule Recipe

Moscow Mule Cocktail has and remains very popular so I wanted to add my review on Reed’s Extra Ginger Brew, a staple ingredient in the Moscow Mule.

Moscow Mule Cocktail Recipe
1-1/2 ounces vodka
Cold Ginger Beer
Garnish Lime Wedge
Copper Mug
Pour the vodka into a copper mug filled with ice, squeeze lime into mug. Fill with Ginger Beer.
Reed’s Extra Ginger Brew is the same recipe as Original Ginger Brew, but has 26 grams (instead of 17 grams) of fresh ginger root for a stronger taste. The other ingredients are the same lemon, lime, honey, cane sugar, pineapple, herbs and spices.

Reed’s Stronger Ginger Brew Here is a list of ingredients from the bottle, Sparkling Filtered Water (Sweetened by a blend of raw cane sugar, pineapple juice from concentrate and honey), Fresh Ginger Root, Lemon and Lime Juices from concentrate and spices. Non Alcoholic. Free of Preservatives, Caffeine, Gluten & GMO’s.

Here is the story of Chris Reed who founded Reed’s Ginger Brew. He first decided to create a ginger ale made with fresh ginger in 1987, he went to UCLA library, pre internet, to research into the early formulas for soft drinks. He figured if he went back far enough in time he would find recipes that worked with real ingredients. Then he found a book from the 1780’s, before the first bottling plants even existed, that talked about brewing sodas from whole roots, spices and fruit juices in the kitchen. Chris knew he had found what he was looking for. These early soft drinks, besides being delicious, were also used as herbal tonics. After two years of much trial and error, Reed’s Original Ginger Brew was ready to launch.
Reed’s brews are a delicious revival of the lost brewing art of brewing sodas. Each small batch is hand crafted with pride, carefully brewed and aged by expert brew masters. They choose only the finest fresh herbs, roots, spices and fruits. They don’t use any preservatives or artificial anything in our beverages. And in my opinion Reed’s Brews make the best cocktails.

Ben & Jerry’s Bernie Sanders Ice Cream

Ben & Jerry’s cofounder Ben Cohen made a small batch of ice cream in honor of presidential candidate, Bernie Sanders. Bernie’s Yearning is a mint flavored ice cream with giant chocolate chips somehow is representing the top 1% that has got all the wealth in the last 10 years. The brand is actually Ben’s Best so it will not have the Ben & Jerry’s logo. Ben & Jerry’s Homemade, Inc. has nothing to do with this totally volunteered venture from Ben. Ben & Jerry’s is based in Vermont and in the past has been outspoken yet this is a small but clear way of saying they hope Bernie Sanders a Vermont Senator since 2007 is elected as our next president. If this does not prove it maybe past donations from both Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield to Bernie Sanders campaign, will. Bernie Sanders definitely has the younger voter on it’s side and this is one more way of getting the younger voter interested in Bernie Sanders.

Trump vs. Bush, Bush & Winning

Jeb Bush has proved to be the strongest candidate, he stood up and called Donald Trump out, something all the other candidates, news channel anchors/reporters, talk show hosts, voters, republicans… have been afraid to do. Looking for a candidate that wants to move this country forward, be strong and not constantly talk about the problems and what the left is doing Jeb Bush is looking very Presidential.

It was not a knock out, yet he definitely knocked him down a few times, caused some bleeding and got him off his stance. It’s only mid fight so if Jeb Bush can keep it up it could be a knock out or a win.

Donald J Trump who since the beginning of his campaign has said everything under the sun to get attention, a reality TV star who knows how to get ratings and the attention of viewers. Tell people what they want to hear yet are afraid to say, fake it till you make it, become friends with people who like you and enemies with the people that don’t like you or cross you. Trump’s way, don’t talk, yell, be loud and continuously fight with easy prey, soft-spoken people that will not fight back. But wait…

Governor Jeb Bush, (Florida’s first two-term Republican governor) knows a thing or two about acting Presidential, looking Presidential and being Presidential, he has a father who was President George H.W. Bush and a brother who was a two term President George W. Bush. We can all agree that we may not have liked everything these former Presidents did yet they were strong leaders, until now we have not seen that from Jeb Bush yet now has proven to be the strongest leader.

Jeb Bush called Donald Trump out on TV in the GOP debate on CNN. Jeb Bush said Donald Trump is great at the one-liners but he is a chaos candidate and went on to say he was unhinged. Standing up to Donald Trump known as being a bit of a bully worked, Bush had Trump in the corner and everyone knew it when Trump complained to Hugh Hewitt that it was very sad that all the questions were about what he said. The viewers and the crowd have not digested what exactly happened right then, but now realize Jeb Bush stood up to Donald Trump and call him out, something no one has done before. Now Donald Trump is scared he has been revealed and Jeb Bush is moving forward and will win the GOP Nomination for 2016.

Jeb Bush has proved that he is not afraid of Donald Trump’s loud talking something everyone is scared of. Jeb Bush has a way of muffling the volume of Trump and focusing on what Trump is saying he gets his advice on foreign policy from watching shows, that Donald Trump has no idea what America’s Nuclear Triad is… Trump instead of doing his homework will just tell someone they are ugly, that nobody cares about you, your fat, low energy… it’s Donald Trump name calling and it works with weak people who have something to hide or don’t know how to stand up to a bully.

Why don’t you want to stand up to or cross Donald Trump, and why won’t any other GOP cross Donald Trump? Trump’s way of talking is give someone a compliment followed up by an insult, Jeb Bush is honestly a very nice person, but we need tough people we need toughness… Jeb Bush has proved that he is tough, strong and we will all see his leadership skills revealed as I predict in the near future others are going to stand up to Donald Trump, they are going to find similar ways to get out of in front of the megaphone like loudness that is Donald Trump learn to listen to what is being said then responding with smart answers.

What comes to mind when you think of Donald Trump?
Donald Trump is worth many billions of dollars and that is should scare you, Trump is a brand could be a good one but most people don’t think so, Trump it’s a game, Trump it’s a vodka, Trump is tacky, Trump said, Rosie Odanel is disgusting, she’s a looser, fat ass… because she disagreed with him on something (don’t cross Trump unless your as tough as Jeb Bush), Vince McMann wrestling fan, You’re Fired, The Apprentice if you want to work for Trump, You’ve been Trumped, Birther movement demanding to see President Obama’s Birth Certificate, Unsuccessful Marriages, Unsuccessful businesses Trump Vodka, Unsuccessful real estate, Unsuccessful, Blames everyone else, Trump says I’m Rich, I’m smart, He tweets, fighting with others, good at name calling, I’m rich, I’m full of crap, and I am not well spoken, Bum, looser, talk down to others when you have nothing else to say. He aligns himself with extreme people and views, he has not stayed loyal to either the Democratic Party or the Republican Party and constantly threatens to run as an independent. He feeds off of the haters from the Tea Party, he focuses on the past, he doesn’t believe in science or global warming, he focuses on anything but the facts, he is out of touch, over 8 billion dollars, he puts himself on a pedestal, elitist persona, I’m great, I’m rich, egotistical, he said he will be the greatest, he won’t shut up about himself, Trump University $35,000 for an Entrepreneurship learning from Trump another scam, multiple corporate bankruptcies 3 Atlantic casinos (Taj Majal, how do you bankrupt a casino), big failures, bridge burner, he sues everyone Univision, Bill Mahr, won’t admit to failures, Publically shame people, groups, and businesses…
He says things that would alienate foreign partners
Mexicans, NBC has cut ties with Trump, he’s a trash talker, STO State the obvious… we need strong boarders, Constantly making fun of the current President, Don’t cross Trump because he will sue you.

Star Wars Inspired Lightsaber Battle Sets A World Record

Star Wars Inspired Lightsaber Battle took place in downtown Los Angeles Friday night when thousands of Star Wars fans in costume gathered battle it out and in the mean time set a world record. It started around 9:OO p.m. in downtown LA’s Pershing Square (532 S Olive St. Los Angeles, CA 90013). Yes this is the battle that you will see in other cities like San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle and due to it’s success many more to come.
I felt like I was at the live Star Wars The Force Awakens movie. This was organized by a company called New Mind Space, yet the actual Star Wars fans who came out in drones to participate were the main attraction.

Rent A Christmas Tree A Real Potted Tree

I’m dreaming of an ECO friendly Christmas… Do you like a traditional tree but don’t have a fire place, most people will dry the tree out after the holidays and use it for firewood. You don’t have a fireplace and you don’t like to think of a tree that is cut down just for a one month decoration then put in the trash and taken to a landfill. Now you can rent a tree, The Living Christmas Company, a Southern California company now allows customers to rent a living potted tree for the holidays. You can now have a fresh-smelling live tree in your home rather than one that is dying out day by day. A potted tree can only stay indoors for about three weeks before it’s health begins to deteriorate, so plan your three weeks, or do what we did this year and get one tree, three weeks later trade it out for a second one. After a tree is returned the trees are cared for in various lots around Southern California. When the Christmas trees become too big and can no longer be rented they are planted in the community. With delivery and pickup in a Bio Diesel truck this year renting a tree is one of the most eco-friendly options, it’s like Christmas for the environment. If you would like to rent a live tree go to The Living Christmas Company.

CVS CLOWN VENICE BEACH

Venice, California, walking down the ocean promenade is half the fun, as there is so much more to see if you walk east. Main Street has the Clown in a Dress, nicknamed “Ballerina Clown” or “Clownerina.” It’s a ballerina clown in a dress, wearing over-sized white gloves and a red-nosed clown face. It is a Jonathan Borofsky’s creation made in 1989, it’s 30 feet tall above the CVS.

The rumor is there is an electric motor that makes the right leg execute a slow kick forward. It was turned off in 1990 as building tenants complained that it was too noisy. It was restored in 2014, and now the CVS Clown in Venice Beach kicks between 1pm and 6pm daily. Stop by it makes a great video and most people have not seen the clown in action.
