The McNuggetini

This video is pretty much all that is right and wrong in the world.

Im actually not totally dismissing this idea as I saw a local burger joint that has spiked milkshakes and it very much piqued my interest. I might have to try this concoction at my next white trash party ;)

Rapid beverage chiller

While trolling about the internet today I came across this product…

The Cooper Cooler HC01-A Rapid Beverage Chiller

This contraption boasts the ability to take a room temperature can of juice, beer, soda or even a bottle of wine and make it a thirst quenching 44 degrees in just a matter of minutes. The product costs about $50 on sale at Amazon which to me is a bit pricey for the product. However there have been many times (like Tuesday night) where I just served dinner only to realize that I forgot to chill the bottle of white wine. Lucky for me my freezer is a beast and can chill things about twice as fast as most other freezers. Still, I can definitely see the appeal of this product especially for parties and entertaining. I think I’ll wait until it drops another $20 before I consider picking it up thought.

If you too dont feel like shelling out $50 for a chilled beverage, check out this episode of one of my favorite shows, Mythbusters, where they look into myths about how to rapidly chill a 6-pack. If you feel like wasting your fire extinguisher (those things are expensive to refill) you can chill a beer in a matter of seconds by blasting it with the extinguisher.

DIY Mobile Bar

This week on Instructables user jamiep posted up instructions for how to make your own Mobile Bar aka BaR2D2.

If only the frat boys of the world could figure out how solder and hard-wire, theres nothing that could stop them from building a beer slinging army of BaR2D2s! Actually, just from skimming the instructions, it doesnt look like a terribly complicated project. In fact with some elbow crease and patience just about anyone could construct this project even if they’ve never worked with robotics before. The creator of this project described BaR2D2 as “is a radio-controlled, mobile bar that features a motorized beer elevator, motorized ice/mixer drawer, six-bottle shot dispenser, and sound activated neon lighting.” Apparently its also “driveable” so you can “take the party on the road.” Im not exactly sure how this is drivable, but I can only hope that they mean you can ride it home on autopilot after you get to drunk to drive.

Below is a video of BaR2D2 in action and click here for step by step instructions to make your own.


DIY Cocktail Umbrella Lamp

Tis the season for Holiday parties…well just parties in general. So you wakeup the next morning with a pounding headache and pocketful of little cocktail umbrellas and what do you do? Wait not the trash! Pop a few Advil and try constructing a Cocktail Umbrella Lamp!

Some glue and a little bit of patience is basically what it takes to make this pretty little lamp. Plus, when you shamefully walk into the office the next morning you can claim that all your over-the-top boozing was for a craft project.

AK Ice Tray

What is my obsession with ice cube trays? I’ve already blogged about the Gin and Titonic ice cube tray but now my friend has given me a new tray to drool over.

AK Ice Tray

“Freshen up that killer drink with a round from the Bullet Ice Tray! Pour some water into the AK Ice Tray, freeze then enjoy your beverage with a few ice cold Bullets from an AK-47 Gun. Maybe you got an ‘acquaintance’ coming around for a drink, put a few AK ice bullet rounds in and maybe then he will take you serious!”

So for those of you looking to gangstafy your drink unload a clip of these ice bullets. You can preorder them now and they go on sale November 3rd.

Dear Santa,

Please bring me this for Christmas.

Love always,

PS-Dont tell your friend Jesus about this because Im pretty sure owning this ice cube tray warrants a one way ticket to Hell.

Welcome! Would you like some tea?

So its high time I start a blog thats been swirling in my head for a while…Domestic Geek. A blog that serves to prove that you can be a tech savvy hardworking woman (or man) who also loves to knit yoga bags and cook curry. In recent years the word “domestic” has taken on a bad connotation and I want to take back that word as something chic and practical (I wont go into a long rant here and now, Im sure you get the gist). Here you’ll find everything from recipes, to patterns, to tips and links to all around cool domestic geekery. So with a Irish Tea in hand (trust me this aint your grandma’s tea…or maybe it is if shes a lush) I crisen this blog!

Oh and how rude of me, of course I must leave you with a quick recipe on how to make Irish Tea.  I have to give my brother credit for introducing me to this idea of substituting tea for coffee in Irish Coffee, its perfect if you arent exactly a coffee drinker or if you dont feel like brewing up a whole pot of coffee.


  • 1 cup Water
  • 1 Irish tea bag (or English Breakfast tea)
  • 1-2 shots of Whiskey (something with a smokey mild flavor…I like Cutty Sark or Jameson)
  • 1 shot of Creme Liquor (my preference is Cask N Cream)

Bring water to a boil on the stove and allow to cool slightly before adding the tea (common we’ve all made tea before right!?). Allow the tea to steep for a few minutes. Add a shot (or two!) of whiskey and a shot of creme liquor. mix and serve! for added pizzaz top with a bit of vanilla powder, cinnamon or nutmeg. To put an exotic twist on this substitute a mild black chai tea instead! Bigelows Vanilla Chai is amazing fyi.

Serve and enjoy! This drink is a great breakfast treat if you want to start your Sunday morning off right (not recommended for weekdays) or a nice way to close out a day. Enjoy!
