750 mL Coconut Rum
1 Pint of Don Q Mint Rum
1.75L of Citrus Vodka
3 Gallons Fruit Punch Soda
1 Liter of Pineapple Juice

Diageo introduces new Smirnoff Sorbet Light flavors

Source of pic: The Spirits Business

This whole reduced calorie vodka thing is not that new to the scene as we all know Voli has done this a year or two prior. I was actually conversing with a liquor store manager about the whole low calorie thing, and I wanted to try out Voli. I saw that they had it there briefly. Now, it's nowhere to be seen because people in the D.C./MD/VA area don't really care for a low proof vodka. If you actually break it down, Vodka actually doesn't have very many calories compared to other alcohols because there isn't a crazy amount of sugar or components to make vodka.

While I am not a big fan of Smirnoff, it is very affordable. And most people identify Smirnoff with Vodka. The fact that it is still a household name and the show "Master of the Mix', a deejay based show that Smirnoff sponsors, is on the air every week gives the brand a chance to really be seen by millions of viewers weekly. So, given the reputation of Smirnoff and the type of cross branding power it possesses, their low calorie vodkas have the chance to breakthrough bigger because they have a better marketing plan than Voli. Also, it's the right time due to summer coming up and the flavors "Mango", Lemon and "Raspberry Pomegranate" are just right for the ladies.

Here's a solid review from the guys at Common Man Cocktails

Rumchata Review

I haven't done one of these in a while. I do deem it important, though. If you've had real homemade Rumchata, you probably will or will not like this. However, the common consumer loves this concoction.

Scent Notes - nice honey, milk, cinnamon, and vanilla tones.

Tasting - honey, milk, cinnamon, vanilla, and with a slight bite.

This drink needs absolutely nothing mixed. However, I will show you a few recipes below.

Overall, I give this a B-

Not exactly my favorite, but if you like something a bit sweet and soothing. This might be your dessert after dinner.

Here are Rumchata recipes below:

Why You Should Go With Indoor Planting

Beginning your road with hydroponics meaning know what kind of inline fan you will need for your endeavor. If you find yourself on a budget, there are plenty of grow boxes available at TheLaShop.com. Although it is very important to find cheap supplies for hydroponics (so that you don’t break the bank), it is very possible to keep everything quality while still at a lower price. LA shop has been known for making products not only cheaper, but easier to purchase as well. Reviewers have mentioned products being fifty dollars cheaper than other rival sites, and customer service was always great. Hydroponics is a great hobby to start up, and can even be a business in a small town. Growing your plants indoors enables you to not have to worry about the weather constantly and will allow you to not deal with any natural disasters such as floods and thunderstorms that could ruin a whole season. All the products available have been through testing so that they are ensured to help you and be efficient for your garden. One of the things that LA shop Hydroponics is known for actually is their customer service. If any product arrives damaged or dysfunctional, they are more than happy to help with no hassle! Not many companies are like that nowadays so the customers are very appreciative. If you want to give hydroponics a try, start at your library and take out a few books so you can learn what really goes into it! It is a very rewarding experience and is an easy way to maintain your plants. Although starting out in hydroponics may seem confusing, after you get it all set up you are able to maintain you garden quite easily.
