I love vodka, just plain vodka. I was little shocked to read that Absolut has created a vodka wine fusion. Absolut Tune is made from vodka and bubbly New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. Apparently it looks like Champagne and it is even packed in a Champagne-shaped bottle.
I would love to try this but I definitely don’t approve of it. I think its sacrilege to interfere with the pure taste of vodka and wine, unless it is some inferior quality stuff. Having said that, Van Gogh Peanut Butter & Jelly Vodka makes Absolut Tune sound good.

The latest dining craze – smoked water. Are you as shocked as I am?
Heston Blumenthal asked Anglesey Sea Salt to create smoked water for his restaurant The Fat Duck. The smoking process takes four days in an oak smoker. “The Fat Duck use it in their cooking as far as I know, to add smoky flavour to potatoes or seafood” according to David Lea-Wilson of Anglesey Sea Salt.
Apparently food manufacturers are also excited by this product since artificial smoke flavouring is being phased out. And this will reduce one of the headaches for mixologists. They presently use smoke guns which can set of smoke detectors.
So it seems the industry is quite excited by this innovation. I feel sorry for the environmentalists. They are already battling the bottled water industry, and now the industry has taken a step further. You take water, smoke it for four days and then use it for cooking. Amazing.
