GARRETT`S MAITINI AND PELE´S BREATH

Browsing through Remixed i always stops at the picture of Garrett`s Maitini – it looks so deliscious! i have of course since long been thinking of making it but never got that far until now.

I need to switch out the rum though since i don´t have Bacardi 8. As you can see from […]

DOES CAFFEINE REALLY CAUSE DEHYDRATION? NO!

The truth is – it doesn`t – and now we`re going to kill the caffeine dehydration myth once and for all. I`m more than willing to say my word on this topic and here´s why: Its totally useless that a myth shall abound that prevents people from having a cup of good coffee when […]
