Let Teeling Whiskey Help You Get Your Irish on

Let Teeling Whiskey Help You Get Your Irish on

If you want to see how hot whiskey is right now, just glance at the bulging shelves of your local liquor shop. Irish whiskey can be great any time, of course, but with Saint Patrick’s Day around the corner it’s an especially good moment to consider some Irish expressions. I recently tried a couple from Teeling that are available in the United States, and I think they would make an excellent addition to any celebration, large or small.

Teeling Small Batch Whiskey ($37.99)

This whiskey was finished in rum casks. It was bottled in small batches at 92 proof without chill filtration. The moment you pour this small batch it shimmers in your glass with the color of pure, fresh apple juice. Mulling spices and aromas of fresh wheat light up the nose. Apple, quince, and bits of date fill the mellifluous palate, along a potpourri of spices. Pepper, cardamom, and toast lead the long finish, which is a firm bit and shows off some discernable and pleasing heat. This is a nice whiskey that has loads of character, a firm backbone, and a very appealing price. For under $40, it would make for an exceptional every day sipper.

Teeling Single Grain Whiskey ($49.99)

Corn dominates the grains in this selection. The whiskey was aged entirely in barrels that previously held red wine from California. Teeling’s goal with this bottling is to help expand the number of unique Irish offerings on the shelf. The color is a bit darker than the small batch, as it’s tinged with brown. The deep and somewhat funky nose shows off a hint of molasses. From the moment this whiskey touches your lips the prevalence of spices is apparent. They’re joined by lots of fruit and hints of toast on the palate. A touch of sweetness emerges on the finish, joining the continuing parade of spices. In particular, that bit of molasses from the nose reappears and provides a nice final reprise. This is a distinct, full-flavored, and lovely whiskey. It’s more complex and unique than is common for an under $50 offering.

The Teelings have a history with Irish whiskey that dates back to 1782. Their current project, the Teeling Whiskey Company, was founded in 2012. In 2015, they aim to break ground on the first new whiskey distillery in Dublin in more than 125 years. Their goal is to be an independent producer of innovative and distinct Irish whiskeys. The two whiskeys above are a sure sign that this is a brand to keep your eyes on. More delicious liquids are certain to be headed our way from their stills.


When You Drink Whiskey Every Night, This Is What Happens To Your Body

Let's talk about whiskey. There are countless popular country songs written about it, and the popularity of this drink is only continuing to grow both in the media and in sales. According to a report done by Global Market Insights, Inc., the whiskey market will exceed $84 billion worldwide by the year 2025. "There's a growing appreciation for [bourbon] among millennials as opposed to beer and some other stuff," Michter's Distillery president Joseph Magliocco told CNBC.

In 2018, the oldest living woman in Great Britain, Grace Jones (a.k.a. "Amazing Grace"), attributed her long life to the glass of whiskey she drank each night. "I started having a nightly tot of it when I turned 50 so I've been having it every night for the last 60 years, and I certainly have no intention of stopping now," she told Gloucestershire Live.

So, is there something to drinking whiskey every night? Here's what happens to your body when you drink whiskey often.


Q: Is whiskey worse for your erection than other kinds of alcohol?

I reckon you're talking about Whiskey Dick, the rootin'est, tootin'est, though probably not the shootin'est gun in the West. Unless something's completely changed, Whiskey already has a bad rap. He's had one for a while. In this instance, however, the distinction is mostly undeserved. There doesn't seem to be anything unique to whiskey that would degrade erections more than any other kind of alcohol. It's one's overall degree of drunkenness that determines the vigor of one's erections, but, of course, Handcrafted IPA Dick doesn't have the same ring.

No one's suggesting that you give up your beloved whiskey (unless they are, in which case maybe you should). To make sure that you're getting all the benefits from drinking that you can, Amitava Dasgupta, toxicologist and author of The Science of Drinking: How Alcohol Affects Your Body and Mind, advises that men have a maximum of two drinks a day and that hard liquor be taken in the context of a fruit drink "because of the antioxidants." And throw some krill oil in there while you're at it. I do.


Summer Seasonals

C ocktails that embrace seasonal produce are certainly not a new trend, but whisky aligns well with the occasional summer ingredient that simply isn’t a natural fit for other spirits, like sweet corn. Scott Koehl, beverage manager at Ada St. in Chicago, concocts a summer whisky drink dubbed The Nine Pound Hammer that portends it is no lightweight. “This is a drink for people who might normally take whisky neat, but celebrates one of summer’s most prized ingredient by using a bit of corn sweetness to tone down barrel-strength whisky,” says Koehl, who took inspiration from a classic Old-Fashioned cocktail and the chef’s use of summer sweet corn to infuse 1/4 cup of whole grain, dried local sweet corn in a bottle of Booker’s bourbon. “Corn is not exactly refreshing, but it really softens all the edges and makes a potent spirit super mellow,” says Koehl, who completes the cocktail with a charred corn husk garnish, which adds a hint of smoke, redolent of a summer barbecue.

When it comes to more traditional summer seasonal ingredients, Rick Wells, beverage director at BLT Steak NYC in New York City, says stone fruits and plump berries are not the strict domain of Mojitos and Margaritas in his bar. With whisky cocktails, however, Wells advises turning to fruit purees or jams, noting they pack the concentration of fruit intensity to stand up to the spirit.

Inspired by the current popularity of the Moscow Mule, Wells proffers a Georgia Mule. “You could call it a buck—a 19 th century combination of spirit, citrus, and ginger beer—but people can readily relate to a Moscow Mule the drink is actually inspired by Southern peach tea,” says Wells. His Strawberry Patch Smash, made with strawberry jam and fresh mint, marries elements of both a sour and a julep. “Sometimes selling a whisky cocktail in the summer requires some gentle steering, but once people taste it they realize they can enjoy their favorite whisky and have a refreshing drink,” says Wells.

Remedies to cure mouth ulcers

1. Salt

Salt has antiseptic and healing properties which are great for helping to heal mouth ulcers. It’s an inexpensive, effective, and convenient remedy. You just need to follow these steps:

Ingredients

Preparation

  • Pour the water and salt into a pot.
  • Stir well until the salt dissolves.
  • Bring to a boil and let boil for at least 5 minutes.
  • Let sit for 2 minutes.

How to apply

  • Rinse out your mouth with the mixture while it’s still warm.
  • Keep it in your mouth and gargle for 3 minutes.
  • Repeat many times throughout the day.

In the following days, you’ll see how the pain should disappear together with the ulcer.

2. Baking soda

Like salt, baking soda is a great antiseptic and it can help heal and regenerate ulcers quite quickly. Here’s the method…

Ingredients

Preparation

  • Pour the water into a pot, then let it boil for 3 minutes.
  • Let it sit until it cools down.
  • Transfer the water into an airtight plastic container and add the baking soda.
  • Mix well until a paste forms.

How to apply

  • Apply the baking soda paste to the mouth ulcers.
  • Leave on for 40 minutes and rinse off with cold water.

3. Ice

Ice is an excellent way to help heal mouth ulcers. It acts as a sedative that helps relieve pain and also significantly reduces swelling.

You just need to apply the ice cube directly to the affected area, pressing down gently until the ulcers cool down. You can use this remedy 3 to 4 times a day.

4. Hydrogen peroxide

When you have mouth ulcers that are difficult to treat, hydrogen peroxide is a great option. It may also eliminate and prevent your risk of possible infections. To use it correctly, simply apply it directly to your ulcer with a cotton swab. For fast results, we recommend doing this at least three times a day.

5. Mouthwash and ulcers

Despite not being a natural remedy, using a mouthwash can bring short-term relief to the discomfort caused by mouth ulcers.

You may use it as follows:

6. Yogurt

Yogurt contains lactic acid and bacteria that will help regulate your mouth’s pH levels. This helps to prevent the growth of the ulcers and new ones appearing.

  • Eating 2 yogurts (250 ml) a day until the ulcers completely disappear.
  • Applying the yogurt directly to the ulcers with a cotton swab.

7. Onions

Onions are high in sulfur, which not only helps clean wounds, but also may help heal them. Here’s a great remedy for you:

Ingredients

Preparation

  • Cut the onion into small pieces and put them in a pot.
  • Add water and salt and boil for 3 minutes.
  • Let it sit until it cools down.
  • Take the onion out of the water with a strainer.

How to apply

  • Dip a swab in the prepared water and apply directly to the mouth ulcers.
  • Leave on for 5 minutes and rinse off with cold water.

Army colonel will launch into space on moon landing’s 50th anniversary

Posted On April 29, 2020 15:52:21

Fifty years after Neil Armstrong said, “One small leap for man, one giant leap for mankind,” during the historic Apollo 11 moon landing, one American soldier will take the next “giant leap” into space.

Col. Andrew Morgan, astronaut and Army emergency physician, is counting down to his launch for a nine-month mission aboard the International Space Station, July 20, 2019 — the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing.

Morgan, a Special Forces battalion surgeon with more than 20 years of military service, is the first Army Medical Corps officer to be selected as an astronaut.

Along with his crewmates, Morgan is scheduled to arrive at the ISS six hours after blasting off from Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, where he will serve as a flight engineer for Expedition 60, 61, and 62.

“It is a tremendous honor to launch on the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission,” Morgan said during an interview Monday from Star City, Russia. “The entire crew of Expedition 60 has been entrusted with being the torch bearers of the next generation of space exploration.”

With St. Basil’s Cathedral in Moscow’s Red Square providing the backdrop, Expedition 60 crewmember Col. Andrew Morgan, NASA astronaut and Army emergency physician, poses June 28, 2019, as part of traditional pre-launch activities.

He added there is no better way to commemorate the achievements of Apollo 11 than with a mission to space with an international crew.

It will be Morgan’s first space mission. His crew members include Alexander Skvortsov of the Russian space agency Roscosmos and Luca Parmitano, an Italian astronaut from the European Space Agency.

Morgan and his crewmates will facilitate research on various projects, including mining minerals in the Solar System, looking into methods for engineering plants to grow better on Earth, and examining cells from Parkinson’s patients in zero gravity to better understand neurodegenerative diseases, according to a NASA press statement.

Morgan joined NASA as a member of the 2013 astronaut class, and was assigned his specific flight 18 months ago.

However, according to Morgan, he is a soldier first.

During the space mission, Morgan plans to pull from his military experience, where he is certified as a military flight surgeon and special operations diving medical officer.

“I am a sum of my experiences,” Morgan said. “The Army has been a critical part of my experiences since the very beginning.”

Where he is today is because of the Army, he added.

In 1996, while a cadet at West Point, Morgan, along with his team, earned the national collegiate title for competitive skydiving. His military career also includes time with the Army’s “Golden Knights” demonstration parachuting team.

Skydiving is a “core part” of who I am, Morgan said. He added the “calculated risk taking” and entrusting his life with team members parachuting laid the foundation he needed to become an astronaut.

Shortly after parachuting, he became the battalion surgeon for the 1st Battalion, 3rd Special Forces Group (Airborne), also known as the “Desert Eagles.”

After three years serving on flight status, combat dive, and airborne status with the Desert Eagles, he was selected for a strategic operations assignment in the Washington, D.C., area, according to his NASA biography.

“I’m a soldier, a physician, and an astronaut,” Morgan said. “I made the decision to be a soldier when I was 18, and I am very, very proud of that.”

There are a lot of similarities between military deployments and being an astronaut, he said, including time apart from his family.

Morgan’s family are no strangers to deployments. The astronaut has deployed multiple times with the Special Forces in direct combat support operations to Afghanistan, Africa, and Iraq.

Married for nearly 20 years and a father of four, Morgan said his family is ready for the upcoming mission.

They understand the makeup of the mission, he said, and “we are all in this together.”

“I want to make everybody proud,” Morgan added. “I want to accomplish my mission with a team that’s highly effective. If I can accomplish all of that and come home safely to my family, then mission accomplished.”

Although excessive alcohol consumption leads to a much greater risk of cancer, moderate consumption of whiskey, which is rich in antioxidants like ellagic acid, can help to stop your cells from coming into contact with carcinogens and other toxins that can cause mutation. Whiskey is also well known for helping to protect the body from the effects of chemotherapy. Whiskey and cannabis: Now that is a cancer fighting combination everyone can get behind!

Again, we want to impress on you that excessive consumption can cause irreparable damage to your digestive system. However, in moderate amounts, whiskey has long been used as a means of improving digestion. It not only curbs the appetite when consumed after a meal, it can also prevent stomach aches, indigestion, and stop you from overeating.
