Pure Copper Moscow Mule Mug with Copper Shot Glass Review

Hello hotties!  Do you like adult beverages?   Well, I know I do!   When I was asked to review these I immediately accepted because I thought they were really cool looking.  At that time I had no idea what a Moscow Mule was.   What is a Moscow Mule?   I’m glad you asked!   Liquor.com enlightens us.

2oz vodka

3oz ginger beer

juice of 1/2 lime

Fill the mug (or highball glass) with ice, add ingredients and garnish with a lime wheel.  Sit back, and enjoy your refreshing boozy beverage.  And this is what it should look like.

Doesn’t that sound delicious?   Now you need the perfect vessel for this amazing cocktail.  I received mine from Kitchen Classique on Amazon.

It arrived in three days, well packaged and in perfect condition.  It comes with a bonus copper shot glass which I thought was awesome because I collect shot glasses and I didn’t have a copper one.  Here are some photos for you enjoyment!

Would I recommend this product to a friend?  Absolutely!  It’s a beautiful set that is a lot of fun to whip out and show off in front of people.  Also, Moscow Mule’s are delicious.

The Giant-Size Omnibus of Superpowers Poster Review

 

Hello hotties!

Well, for something completely different I have a super fun new product to review.  Sometimes I’m asked to review a product and I am pleasantly surprised.  This is one of those times.   A poster is a poster, you say.  Right?   Well, in this case no….it isn’t.  This company produces high quality products and they describe themselves as thus:

Pop Chart Lab started in 2010, a book editor and a graphic designer joined forces with one modest goal: to render all of human experience in chart form. They went on to amass no small renown (that is, a ton of renown) for their infographical treatments of the varieties of beer, the full array of culinary tools, a taxonomy of hip-hop, and dozens more mappings of cultural touchstones.  Now, with a small team of researchers, designers, and soldiers, Pop Chart Lab continues to assemble, sift, cull, and arrange massive amounts of cultural data into meaningful works of art and information.”

What does that mean for you?  Well, it means they have some seriously cool wall art.   They’ve got everything from beer to tequila and culinary tools to cheese.   And somehow they make them cool looking.  And functional!

The poster I chose is The Giant-Size Omnibus of Superpowers Poster available on Amazon. And they aren’t kidding, it’s 24×36 and printed on very heavy paper, not your normal cheap thin poster paper and retails for $35.   The paper is so heavy that when you remove it from the tube, you’ll have to lay it flat for a few hours or wrap it the other way around the tube it came in to unbend it.

Shipping: It was shipped inside a rigid plastic tube that was then placed in a cardboard poster shipping box.  It arrived quickly and in perfect condition.  It was *just* a tad difficult to get it out of the tube but I succeeded!  I won!   I conquered the plastic poster shipping tube of doom.

The Item:  Gorgeous, beautiful and very high quality.  I have included several close up photos to show you the detail that was put into this poster….it’s amazing!  There is no cheating with the content, it’s all researched and topical.   An extra bonus is designing it to look like a vintage comic book cover.

Verdict:  I love it! Would I recommend this to someone?  Yes.
