Riazul FirecrackerThis drink looks too good to be legal...but it is, proving that epic July 4th fireworks can be served up in a glass as well as in the sky. Wow your Fourth of July barbecue guests with the Riazul Firecracker. This spicy cocktail, infused with Riazul Premium Silver, was concocted by Jorge Guzman, master mixologist and owner of Ofrenda, the new cantina-themed hot spot in Manhattan's West Village. Check out the recipe on the Burn! Blog here.

 

 


 

 

Condiment Gun

Roast My Weenie

Breast Bar

God-Grilla

You totally need every single one of these.  Really.  From top left, the Condiment Gun, from Firebox; Roast My Weenie, from the perverted folks at the company with the same name; the artistic, woodie-inducing Breast Bar, discovered somewhere on the web by Harald Zoschke (Happy Googling); and the astonishing God-Grilla, large enough to barbecue 1,000 sausages, 500 burgers, or two whole cows. Read about it on That'sNerdalicious!  And Happy Start of Summer, everyone!


Latest dispatch from the Burn! Blog...

Wine Pairing App on iPhoneHave you ever stood in the wine section at your local grocery store or Costco and felt completely and utterly lost, unsure of which bottle is the right one for you? Finally, you no longer have to be a sommelier to buy wine like one!

A free mobile application is taking the guesswork out of finding and purchasing wine. The new Natalie MacLean Wine Picks & Pairings app lets you use your smartphone camera to snap a picture of any bottle label bar code in the liquor store. With one click, you can get tasting notes, scores, and food pairings.

“You’re in the wine shop wondering if you should buy the bottle with the castle on its label or the one with the fluffy squirrel,” says Natalie MacLean, the editor of one of the largest wine web sites at www.nataliemaclean.com. She created the tool to make buying wine easier for consumers. “Now you just point and click to find out if that pinot noir actually is a good wine to go with [tomorrow night’s dinner]. No more guesswork based on castles and critters.”

You can scan the wines right in front of you at the store. The app’s key features allow you to:

- Instantly access tasting notes, scores, prices, recipes and food pairings
- Search 150,000 wines at liquor stores across the country
- Track your purchases in your virtual cellar with just a few clicks
- Create a wine journal with your own wine notes and pictures in the app
- Share your wines and pairings on Twitter and Facebook

The app, designed by Fluid Trends, bundles a suite of 10 wine apps including reviews, cellar journals, recipes, food pairings, articles, blog posts, a wine glossary, a bi-weekly newsletter, a Natalie MacLeandirectory of wineries around the world and excerpts from Natalie’s bestselling book Red, White and Drunk All Over as well as her new book out this fall Unquenchable: A Tipsy Quest for the World’s Best Bargain Wines.

A certified sommelier and winner of the World’s Best Wine Writer award at the World Food Media Awards, Natalie wrote and vetted all the pairings and wine reviews in the app rather than relying on computer-generated algorithms and crowd-sourced material. She is the only person to have won both the M.F.K. Fisher Distinguished Writing Award from the James Beard Foundation and the M.F.K. Fisher Award for Excellence in Culinary Writing from Les Dames d’Escoffier International, but to amateur wine lovers everywhere, she’s a hero.

Cheers to that!

At Last, a Chipotle Vodka!

Hangar One VodkaThe fine folks at Hangar One Vodka sent me a bottle of their new vodka, so I had to give it a try.  I pulled it out of the freezer (see ice crystals, left), poured a little into a shot glass, and sipped it.  Big flavor!  Then the heat, which was medium hot.  Very nice.  Then the smokiness hit, and it really worked.  Then the crucial test, a Bloody Mary.  Tomato juice, Hangar One, a little lime juice, a touch of Worcestershire sauce over ice, stirred, not shaken.  Delicious—even my non-Bloody-Mary-drinking wife Mary Jane liked it—but because of the dilution of the vodka, not quite hot enough.  A few dashes of hot sauce solved that and I wondered: how is this made?  The back label provided the answer by Master Distiller Lance Winters: "We're blending infusions and distillations of beautifully roasted chipotle peppers, green jalapeños, red bells, and Scoville-scorching habaneros.  Each pepper was smoked by my friends at T-Rex Barbecue in Berkeley, California."  In my humble opinion, this is a wonderful, spiced up vodka, and again proves my long held belief: vodka is the only alcoholic beverage that works with chile peppers.  Chiles do not improve mediocre wines or beers, and ruin fine ones.
