Is it just me or has it been hot out there? If it’s just me then this article is poorly timed, but if it really is super hot out there then I have just the idea to cool everyone off: frozen liquor on a stick. I tried putting everything in the freezer and with a stick in it and none of it was remotely palatable: beer cans, big bottles of wine, a handle of Jack. Yuck… guess I’ll be be all hot and sober.
