This Invention Would Let You Eat Water Like a Giant Grape

Remember that rain drop cake that tickled the taste buds of people around the world last summer? Well, a laboratory in the U.K. is giving us another option to try the “rain drop” method of eating by creating a way to hydrate minus that pesky water bottle.

Moroccan Mint Tea: The Sweet Tea You've Been Missing

Moroccan mint tea defies many of the best practices employed by tea lovers: the tea leaves are often low-quality and should be boiled before adding heaps of sugar.

"The method we use to make tea is really unusual," says Mourad Lahlou, chef of Aziza and Mourad in San Francisco, CA (Lahlou is a Morocco native). "If you were to tell a tea connoisseur about the kind of tea we drink in Morocco, they would be utterly appalled."

La Colombe Launches "Frothy" Canned Draft Lattes

Go to any big supermarket in the USA and you'll find sleepy-eyed men and women lovingly gazing at the selection of canned coffees, espressos, cappuccinos, mochas, cold brews, cafe au laits, and doubleshot coffees with guarana and ginseng.

All Other Waters Put on Notice: Artichoke Water Is Here

Coffee Brand Wants to Help You Sleep Instead of Keeping You Awake

Most of us find ourselves mindlessly sipping coffee throughout the day to keep us awake. But a rapidly growing coffee brand wants to be your nighttime drink as well, crafting a cup of coffee the company claims will help you fall asleep.

How Bourbon is Made

Here’s a dream vacation for the alcohol lovers among us: Head down to Kentucky bourbon country and spend five days on distillery tours. Unfortunately, many of us don’t have the time (our livers also don’t have the endurance) to make something like that happen, so why not let the good people over at Gear Patrol do it for you, and then live vicariously through them while getting a bourbon education along the way?
