Although they may look – and react – like the latest bath bomb from Lush, these should not, in fact, be added to your bathtub the next time you need to relax. Instead, these brightly colored balls fizz when added to a spirit, helping you unwind with a perfectly blended cocktail instead. Cody Goldstein, of Muddling Memories, created Cocktail Fizzers, seven flavored mixers that dissolve like an Alka-Seltzer tablet when they hit liquid. Intrigued?
This year, as you’re driving down the highway, you may see something a little out of the ordinary pull up next to you: a cement mixer-sized cocktail shaker. The Scotch whisky brand Monkey Shoulder had the heavy-duty vehicle custom built and dubbed it the Monkey Mixer. The rotating shaker will be serving up cocktails across the country over the course of the year, but will be making its debut during the Arizona Cocktail Weekend on February 17 and 18.
Cat owners get a bad rap as being anti-social and aloof, like their cat counterparts, but one woman in Austin is shattering that stereotype. Miranda Lee and her Cornish Rex cat, Lizzy, are fixtures in the local bar scene. “I’ve been taking her with me since day one mostly because I just didn’t want to leave her at home when I went out,” Lee wrote in an email. Lee was methodical when looking for her pet.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
