Old heads will be the first to say that rum isn’t having a revival because it never lost popularity. And that may be true among the Caribbean crowd and the rum sippin’ cat daddies who used to chill out with my dad in his basement home bar. Still, whether due to the increasing popularity of tiki drinks or the normal ebb and flow of drinkers growing bored with their usual pours and seeking something new (to them), rum is having a moment. Now I must admit, I switch up my go-to rum pretty often.
After working hard all summer, I’ll be damned if I’m going to do much of anything on Labor Day. Nope. This day is all about grilling and chilling. That means letting my significant other or friend who swears he can get down on the grill do the cooking, while I take care of the beverages. Now what I know, that he doesn’t is, there are plenty of great looking, great tasting end-of-summer sippers that don’t require a lot of ingredients or effort. Don’t believe me?
Oh look, it’s Independence Day again which means another year of dodgy choices and poor decisions. What am I talking about? If you’re hosting the cookout, it’s likely you haven’t thought out the drinks situation past picking up a few bottles of rosé and a case of beer. If you’re the guest, that means you’re bringing a bottle of sauvignon blanc or chardonnay or, yep, more beer. But what if it were possible to up your hot weather party drinks game without having to break a sweat? Game changer, right?
Hmm, I love this #Bacardi gym bag but I'm wondering if it strikes the right tone. Does it say "I'm serious about my workout" or "I'd rather be drinking"? Imma find out at my Pilates class this weekend #NoOrdinaryMixhttps://t.co/2wn22fIyjr
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".
