If you have a booze lover on your holiday shopping list, a simple bottle of red wine or run-of-the-mill whiskey probably won't suffice. In the hopes of coming up with something a little bit, well, better, Fox News met up with Pamela Wiznitzer, the creative director and bartender at Seamstress Bar in New York City. She's an expert when it comes to seasonal spirits, so there was no one better to ask about picking the perfect present for the booze lover in your life.
Shmaltz beer: It’s the only beer on the market that celebrates and embraces the Jewish heritage. Oh, and it’s kosher too! “Every other group in the United States has a beer [that] celebrates their culture and traditions," says Jeremy Cowan, the founder of Shmaltz Beer, to Fox News. "It's is focused on high-end craft with a unique shtick." Brewed in Clifton Park, N.Y., just ten minutes from Albany, Shmaltz Beer is currently celebrating 21 years in business.
It’s the holiday shopping season, and consumers plan to spend an average $967 on gifts, according to the National Retail Association. Kids likely account for a hefty chunk of that change, most likely after asking Santa for that special, and especially hot, holiday toy. So, which toys are hottest this season? Toy expert Chris Byrne, content director for Toys, Tots, Pets and More, revealed to Fox News the three most popular gifts topping this year's Christmas lists.
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".
