Pour yourself a drink: Bills would allow alcohol delivery and take-home wine!
SANTA FE, N.M. (KRQE) - Get ready to raise your glass. A couple of bills at the State Capitol would make it easier to take home partially consumed wine, and even have alcohol delivered to your front door.
State lawmakers said they hope these bills are ways to reduce DWI's.
"We have two wonderful wineries in my district, in Luna County, and so the wine growers in the state have been trying to get this legislation passed so that it encourages people to come to their winery, taste wine, purchase wine and still be able to take a partially consumed bottle home," said Rep. Candie Sweetser, (D) Deming.
Rep. Sweetser is sponsoring House Bill 549, which would allow people who don't quite finish their bottle of wine bought at a winery to take it home. The winery would have to re-cork the bottle, seal it in a tamper-proof bag with the receipt before you leave.
Over in the Senate, there's another liquor bill in the works.
"It is an attempt to try to foster the tourism business," said Sen. Gerald Ortiz y Pino, (D) Albuquerque. "Foster people having nice meals at home provided by a local restaurant...Instead of having to get dressed up and go out, you can have the same experience in the comfort of your own home."
Senate Bill 484, sponsored by Senator Ortiz y Pino, could let you stay at home and get beer or wine delivered to you. But there's a catch: you have to order $25 worth of food from a restaurant to also order alcohol. Sen. Ortiz y Pino said local delivery services would have to check your ID before giving you the alcohol.
Both lawmakers stressed the importance of reducing DWI's, as well as seeing this as an opportunity for local businesses.
Rep. Sweetser's wine bill unanimously passed in the House Commerce and Economic Development Committee. It's now headed to the floor.

Now there is a Keurig for booze and it can make everything from margaritas to Moscow mules

WASHINGTON, D.C., USA — It’s maybe not what we needed, but it’s what is happening: a Kurig that makes boozy beverages.
Keurig and Anheuser-Busch InBev got together to launch “Drinkworks,” a machine that can make chilled alcoholic drink with only a pod.
The machine will be able to make cocktails, brews, ciders with the touch of a button, and will offer 24 different drinks to start.
Insider reports the machine will run you $299, plus about $4 a pod and $7 for CO2 tanks.
The machine is only available in St. Louis, Missouri for now, but plans to launch in other states – including Florida and California – this summer.
Worth noting, you cannot make regular coffee K cups in this machine and you have to keep the boozy pods in the fridge. CHEERS!

Gee, Kate, when are you going to share a recipe for a cocktail that includes hot beer and a whole egg?
Okay, no one’s ever asked me that, so I’ve taken matters into my own hands. I wanted to learn more about a category of cocktails called flips, which involve beer, a spirit, and an egg, because if there are three substances I always have on hand, it’s beer, booze, and eggs.
Marina Holter, lead bartender at The Whistler in Chicago (and a big flip fan), tells me these are some of the oldest cocktails around, dating back to the 1690s. They originated as nearly equal-parts cocktails: People mixed even amounts of brandy, egg, sugar, then topped it with beer and sometimes inserted a hot soldering iron to froth the beer and heat the drink. Refrigeration wasn’t an option then, so people were used to drinking beer lukewarm or even hot.
If you’ve had hot mulled wine, you can imagine the combination of sugar and warm alcohol that makes a beer flip appealing on a blustery, cold night. But what about that egg? It’s the detail that stops many drinkers in their flip-ordering path, but Holter says you shouldn’t knock it until you’ve tried it.
“I wouldn’t ever straight-up crack an egg and chug it, but it tastes so good in these drinks. It makes flips a hardy, sweeter cocktail, something decadent without being too bad,” she says. “I don’t want to drink melted ice cream, but I want that in cocktail form.”

'Beer Before Wine, You'll Be Fine' Myth Debunked by New Hangover Study
Everyone knows the old rhymes about how to prevent a hangover by having your alcoholic drinks in a specific order (“Beer before liquor; never been sicker,” “Beer before wine; you’ll be fine,” to name a few) — but how true are they?
