Your favorite cocktails, broken down by nutrition facts

No wonder James Bond kills it in those suits — martinis are one of the lowest-calorie options when it comes to cocktails. Don Draper and his Old Fashioneds? Considering all the sugar, we expect a steadily expanding waistline as he tipples his way into the leisure-suit world of the 1970s.

Calories, fat, carbs, and sugar — do such things even count when you’re knocking back a drink or two to, you know, take the edge off? We don’t pretend to judge. But if you do care about the relative nutritional value of your favorite drink, you’ve come to the right joint. Our infographic, below, lists the calories, fat, carbohydrates, and sugar in 46 of the most popular cocktails.

A key thing to remember is that the higher the alcohol content in your liquor, the higher the calories — yet another reason to drink in moderation. To cut back on calories and sugar, choose mixers like soda water, diet tonic, lemon juice, or lime juice — or simply dilute the drink with water. Your bartender probably doesn’t have diet tonic, but if you’re making drinks at home, you can find it in your local grocery.

Check out HellaWella’s Periodic Table of Cocktails to find out if your favorite concoction falls into the same category as Bond’s martini or leans more toward the high-calorie, high-sugar style of drinks like the white Russian and piña colada.

Tuco-Style Freakout – “The Transport”

We love getting cocktail recipes from our friends. Rob Stone of Slows BBQ created another way to enjoy our Agave mead with lime, Tuco-Style Freakout. Click for the recipe of “The Transport”.

The Transport

“The Transport is based on a cocktail called a Paloma. The Paloma in my opinion is better balanced and even more delicious than a classic margarita. Sparkly grapefruity drinks in the summer and even the smell of grapefruit “Transport” you to a vacation style mindset. When approached by B. ­Nektar to make a cocktail with their Agave­ Lime Tuco Style Freakout, I was looking for a solution to finish off the Mezcall-y Paloma Riff I was Working On. I originally was going to use the New York based Dr. Brown’s Soda Company’s Cel­Ray Soda, but, was having some difficulty procuring it at the time and needed a viable solution. In walks B. Nektar with the Tuco-Style Freakout. Eureka. There was the answer. It was as if the periodic table aligned perfectly and provided me with the ultimate chemical equation! Who would’ve calculated it, a Sparkling agave lime flavored mead to top off my cocktail! I had never worked with mead in the past for a cocktail, however, the sparkling semi-dry nature of it didn’t overpower the cocktail with sweetness and left me with a bit of wiggle room. A bit of simple, a squeeze of lime, a few shakes of Celery bitters and Voila! The Transport was born.” – Rob Stone


Early Game Tips [ edit | edit source ]

  • Canned food and bottled water (found as loot or purchased from traders) are essential for early survival.
  • All other food even cooked has a 4% chance of Food Poisoning. Vitamins can negate that chance for 12 minutes.
  • Save Glass Jars and fill them at bodies of water. and a Cooking Pot are needed to boil Bottled Murky Water.
  • Hunt and harvest animals for meat. Obtain a Bone Knife, Machete, or a Hunting Knife to harvest maximum loot (axes yield less).
  • Its recommended you do not eat Moldy Bread, Old Sham Sandwich, or Rotting Flesh as it has a very high chance of Food Poisoning and rather save them for future crafting recipes.
  • Save looted seeds to easily establish a farm later on.
  • Spend skill points on Living off the Land, Master Chef, and other related perks for unlocked recipes and farming abilities.

This simple recipe only requires a few basic kitchen ingredients:

  1. How much fake blood do you need? Pour that amount of corn syrup into a bowl.
  2. Stir in corn starch until you achieve the desired blood consistency. The blood will thicken as the water in the corn syrup evaporates, so if you are using the blood for a Halloween costume, for example, expect the blood to be thinnest when you first prepare it.
  3. Add food coloring to achieve the desired color.

A variation of this recipe is to make a fake blood gravy, in which you heat the corn syrup to boiling and add a corn starch dissolved in a little water. This produces a translucent blood. If you cook the blood, be sure to wait until it has cooled before you use it.


Periodic Table of Cocktails: From Appletinis to Zombies - Recipes

Ordering shots at the bar can really add up and be quite a shock when its time to close the tab. Another option is to invite all your friends over and make your favorite shots at home. The bar scene can be fun until that guy pukes on your shoes or the guys next to you start a fight pushing your girlfriend to the ground. Sometimes hanging out at home is more fun and you can make all your favorite shots from the bar.

This infographic has recipes for 30 of the most popular shots. Whether your celebrating a bachelor party with a “buttery nipple” or St. Patrick’s Day with a “shamrocked” shot, these recipes have got you covered. I know that when I have people over we always try to remember what is in our favorite shots and try to make then. Now we can, thanks to this convenient infographic.

Each shot is shown with an image and the title as well as what is included in each shot. Save this infographic because I am sure you are going to be using at your next party or maybe even a family gathering. Remember to know your limit.

My favorite is a Woo Woo and then the Kamikaze. What’s yours? This drinking infographic was created by Don Bullach.


Humanless stores: a bad idea that refuses to die


It’s funny how certain tech ideas are bad and yet keep coming back, like zombies. Micropayments is one. Another is stores or establishments run without people: automats, in a sense. It’s a terrible idea in my opinion, and yet people keep trying them. Case in point, here’s some in China that came and went: China’s unmanned store boom ends as quickly as it began – Nikkei Asian Review.

I am sure these will pop up from time to time. Robots are becoming more prevalent, and the urge to keep putting more and more of them in establishments will continue. But like the old automats, I think they will only get so far before they fail.

  • 14 oz. can of sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 tablespoon of cornstarch
  • food coloring (or you could add a little unsweetened powdered drink mix)
  • couple of drops vanilla or other flavoring, if desired
  1. In a saucepan over low heat, stir together the milk and cornstarch. Stir and heat until the mixture thickens. Remove from heat.
  2. Stir in the coloring and any flavorings. Allow the slime to cool.
  3. Enjoy! When you are finished playing with this slime, store it in a sealed plastic bag in the refrigerator.

Refrigerated slime is good for a day or two. You can clean up the edible slime with warm soapy water. If you added food coloring or drink mix, keep the slime away from surfaces which could be colored, such as carpet or upholstery.


Name Icon Use
Brewing Stand Used to add ingredients into water bottles.
Cauldron Each one can hold a bucket of water (after placement).
Will fill 3 glass bottles.
Blaze Powder Needed to fuel the brewing stand. [ Computer  and Console editions ]
Glass Bottle Container for all kinds of potions.
Water Bottle The starting base for all potions.
Made by filling a glass bottle from a cauldron or water source.

Base Ingredients [ επεξεργασία | επεξεργασία κώδικα ]

Base ingredients are the starting point of all potions. Nether Wart is the primary ingredient added to water bottles at this stage, as it is required to make most of the potions. Fermented Spider Eye allows making a Potion of Weakness. All other base ingredients do not allow making anything useful.

Name Icon When added makes
Nether Wart Awkward Potion
Glowstone Dust Thick Potion
Redstone Mundane Potion
(extended)
Fermented Spider Eye Potion of Weakness

Secondary Ingredients [ επεξεργασία | επεξεργασία κώδικα ]

Secondary ingredients imbue an Awkward Potion with a particular effect but do not alter potion duration or intensity. When added directly to a water bottle, any of these ingredients will produce a Mundane Potion (with the exception the golden carrot, which can't be brewed into a water bottle to make a potion).

Name Icon Effect
Magma Cream Fire Resistance
Sugar Speed
Glistering Melon Instant Health
Spider Eye Poison
Ghast Tear Regeneration
Blaze Powder Strength
Golden Carrot Night Vision
Pufferfish Water Breathing
Rabbit's Foot Leaping

Modifiers [ επεξεργασία | επεξεργασία κώδικα ]

Modifiers change the potion's properties. The "longer duration" and "more potent" versions of a potion can be forever interchanged.

Corrupting Effect: Fermented Spider Eyes will change a potion's base effect, often reversing it or producing a negative potion.

  • A "corrupted" potion usually does the opposite of the original potion.
  • Potions of Invisibility are considered a "corrupted" version of the Potions of Night Vision. Instead of seeing at maximum brightness, you turn invisible.


Pinterest and other online sources would have you believe you can break open a glow stick, mix it in with a clear polish, and get glow in the dark nail polish. This method is an epic fail. It ruins a perfectly good glow stick, stinks, and makes a greasy, nasty mess. It also doesn't work.

The technique varies, from mixing the contents of the glow stick directly into your polish, to mixing clear topcoat with glow stick liquid in a separate container (safer, but the chemicals don't really mix), to painting your nails with a broken glow stick and then sealing with a top coat (glow stick liquid never, ever dries).

Don't try any of these at home. Trust me on this. In the interest of science, I tried them all. Gross. If you decide to go ahead anyway, at least coat your nails with a base coat before applying anything from a glow stick to protect them.

Another internet hoax is glowing Mountain Dew, although here a glow stick can come in handy.
