As rum week continues, I wanted to post something really fun to break up the week. Introducing the fun and charismatic emoji cocktail! I am not going to lie: I am obsessed with this little creature of happiness. I got my first iPhone in August and it's changed my life. Not only did I get to use all the cute little emojiâ€˜s, but also all my text messages became super happy! There is even a website that defines every emoji and it can be found here: http://emojipedia.org.
Did you know that grenadine is really just concentrated pomegranate juice bottled with a ton of sugar and additional ingredients? In the past, I've reduced the juice to a syrup and used it in place of grenadine in lots of recipes. But for this cocktail, I wanted it concentrated a bit, but not quite so thick. Adding honey gives my homemade syrup a nice flavor profile and gives it enough weight to sink to the bottom of the glass and produce the ‘sunrise’ effect.
DrinkWire is Liquor.com’s showcase for the best articles, recipes and reviews from the web’s top writers and bloggers. In this post, Tony Sachs offers insight into genever. It's hard to wrap one's head around 100% maltwine genever when the entire genever category is still little more than a vague rumor to a lot of imbibers who aren't from the areas of Europe where it's made and consumed (mainly Holland and Belgium). The knee-jerk response to "what the heck is genever, anyway?" is often "Dutch gin."
@DeeDeeRhinehart@NancyPelosi I remember you being pretty ticked off - or if you weren’t, you did a good imitation of someone who was! It’s funny, when everyone was saying Obama was going to bring us all together & partisan politics were over, I was like, did anyone tell the @GOP this? B/c it ain’t happening.
@DeeDeeRhinehart@NancyPelosi I don’t hate you! And I try not to hate anyone, esp Republicans, because I know Russians right here on this Twitter thing want us all to hate each other. I do get riled up, though. Think of how angry & hopeless you felt when Obama was prez, that’s how I feel now.
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".
