While browsing through Twitter I came across this sneak peak of the special edition Belvedere Vodka Red. It’s expected to be released some time in September and from the looks of the picture it’ll be the latest product to be added to the (RED) campaign. For those of you who aren’t familiar with (RED) their campaign uses various products to raise “awareness around HIV/AIDS and [emphasize] the need for consumers to unite in support of programs to curb the AIDS epidemic.” 50 percent of the proceeds from Belvedere Vodka Red will go directly to the global fund.
I actually posted this video awhile back on another blog I had, but I thought it was just so creative and unique that I had to post it here as well. Who would have ever thought to combine popcorn and vodka? Well, the folks over at Belvedere Vodka did. It’s definitely an edgier drink recipe so I’m kind of curious as to how the Intense Popcorn Sour might taste, but I’m sold on the overall idea.
Last Friday, the good folks of Atlanta were treated to some G.O.O.D. Music, good food, and of course good beer as part of the Heineken Red Star Access/G.O.O.D. Music show. It all went down at Echelon 3000 in Stone Mountain and featured performances from both CyHi The Prynce and Pusha T. Unfortunately, I missed out on the show (I’m still upset about that) but I was able to find a few cool pics from the event over at Freshness Mag.
Now I’ve heard some horror stories about how many calories are in a Pina Colada. I don’t want to frighten any of you so I’ll pass on all the gory, caloric details. But for those of you trying to skimp on the calories I came across a great recipe for a lower calorie Pina Colada (165 calories to be exact) thanks to Fitness Magazine. It’s the perfect drink for a night at home with the gals because we all know that guys tend to drink their Pina Colada’s behind closed doors.
1 1/2 ounces coconut-flavored rum
3 ounces pineapple juice
4 ounces sparkling water
1 tablespoon of Coco Lopez Cream of Coconut Lite (Good luck finding this because I had know idea they had a Coco Lopez Lite)
Pour ingredients over ice and stir. Garnish with pineapple slice.
Free drinks? Live music? Art on art on art? That’s exactly what you can expect when the Gentleman Jack sponsored Arts Beats + Lyrics event returns to Atlanta on Friday, July 29th. The event is absolutely free and all you have to do is RSVP to attend. It’s as simple as that. I’ve yet to check out Art Beats + Lyrics, but from what I’ve heard it’s an event you definitely don’t want to miss. Oh, and I did mention free Gentleman Jack cocktails right?
