BENEFIT WINES is the coolest way to buy wine… every purchase helps a charity! there is a wonderful selection of charities that you can choose to support (with a lot of animal advocacy ones) and about $7 from each bottle goes to that charity. all the labels are designed so beautifully and individually for each charity.
a bottle makes the perfect summer party gift for your host/hostess with a favorite cause or a soft spot for furry fuzzies. i personally love the orangutan ones for REDAPES.ORG cheers!

In honor of Japan’s one year Fukushima anniversary, i present the Fukushima Kooler. i don’t believe in coincidence. 911 was no accident and i don’t believe 311 (Fukushima) was either. now, one year to the week later, intense earth tremor activity is again occurring in japan. while the original Fukushima disaster was caused by the rogue factions of world governments, these most recent tremors are mother earth’s way of saying i know what you did and have not forgotten.
mother earth, or Gaia, is a living, breathing, conscious being just like you and I. we are all cohabitating on a self-sustaining space ship called earth. we were tricked by the aforementioned rogue factions of our world governments into believing that we are not in control of our destiny and earth is a harsh place to live, and nothing is further from the truth. actually, we are all just avatars of our real selves playing an incredibly real video game. dark against the light… positive versus negative… you know the deal, it’s called duality. but what you may not realize is that it’s just a play you’re acting in. the ultimate bad guy, lucifer, also signed up to play this game, as did every member of the rogue faction of the world governments. if you don’t believe me then please explain why lucifer’s name translates to “light bearer.”
so, if you’d like the universe, or the rogue team, to stop jerking you around… you do have the power. think of your body like a car… if you refuse to drive your own steering wheel, then someone else will do it for you. because everyone knows a car cannot drive itself. team rogue has been steering all of our cars for a very long time, and i’m ready to drive on my own now. aren’t you? they’d like us to drive a fred flinstone jalope. but wouldn’t you prefer to drive a hybrid electric flying porshe? it has never been easier to take the wheel. watch the rogues fall from their positions of power… our new highway is being built and it’s called 2012. what was once referred to as conspiracy theory will become known as truth. so, open your mind to miracles and your heart to magic. know that we are not alone. we have angels, ascended masters, benevolent aliens, and secret societies of earth on our team.
building the new earth, is easier than you might think. for example, did you know that you can change the weather among other crazy things just by using a technique called THETAHEALING? i do it all the time. many japanese people have been removing the radiation from their contaminated food by using theta healing. and did you know that we have teams of “good aliens” working amongst us to help us out of this mess we got ourselves into? it helps to understand that we are ALL aliens. none of us started off on earth. we all “came” here. aliens are simply versions of us from other corners of the universe! and aliens have been on this planet for eons. how do you think the pyramids got here? how do you think we got up into space? hello crop circles? why do you think the government denies their existence? why do you think there are so many scary alien movies out there? to brainwash us into thinking aliens are bad, that’s why! aliens are here to help so let’s let em do what they came to do!
but back to astrology, the country of japan is a libra. on one side of its scales she weighs the ancient traditions of her past (whaling) against the progressive innovations of the present future. japan is still an insultingly patriarchal society, but ironically their scientists create the world’s leading inventions. they can make fuel from water. they invented kangen water, which cures cancer. imagine the inventions they haven’t yet shared with the world!
tamarind is ruled by mars, ancient ruler of scorpio. scorpio symbolizes the phoenix rising from the ashes of fukishima. japan is rebirthing itself like the greatest of scorpios. the rest of the world watches in awe as the japanese people calmly take each beyond challenging day in their stride. even their pets are to be commended. japans’s handling of this UNnatural disaster is admiral. so, cheers to japan.
2 oz shochu
3/4 oz lime juice
1/2 oz agave
2 dashes peach bitters
***muddle a lychee and bitters. add shochu, agave, lime. shake and double strain into an ice-packed high ball. top with tamarind water. garnish with a lychee.
(PS, shochu is a japanese spirit that contains about half the calories and alchohol content of most booze. good for lightweights, great for the bikini)
***this is the most DELICIOUS juice. it’s great to drink alone, but we are using it in a cocktail here.
***buy tamarind pods at most ethnic markets and of course online. look for the sour ones, not the sweet ones.
***peel between 15-20 tamarind pods, leaving veins attached. simmer with 8 cups sugar and 16 cups water for 20-30 minutes. macerate to the best of your ability in the pot. then strain. will last a couple weeks in the fridge.

i wish i could attend, but this is one weekend that i am booked solid for. if you can make it, there is a SPILL INTO WASHINGTON DC to rally for the gulf, this labor day saturday & sunday. (BTW, did you know that our commander in chief cashed in his BP stocks the week before the accident, along with BP CEO?) if that doesn’t get ya fired up, i don’t know what will!
for details on this unprecidented march on the capital, visit SPILLINTOWASHINGTON.org, or buy a tee shirt now for $20. car pools are being organized… this will be one for the history books, peeps.
you can also help the gulf by purchasing our charity SPILLTINI™ martini kit. fifty cents from each sale will be donated to gulf rescue.
we here at IZ are trying our best to do what we can for the gulf disaster… thanks to my friend katherine for suggesting i turn the GULF SPILL COCKTAIL into a saleable item. great idea! for only $10, you can sip your very own SPILLTINI™, fifty cents from each purchase will be donated to charities assisting with the gulf of mexico oil spill. each kit makes about eight-ten drinks, because SPILLTINIS™ are best enjoyed with friends.

created in 1874, southern comfort hails from the crescent city, new orleans. most will agree that it was this very city that birthed the first cocktail. what i’m getting at here is that this down home bourbon is as american as apple pie, baseball, and well, the gulf of mexico. speaking of, how’d you like to help southern comfort help the gulf?
and while you’re sipping your old fashioned (made with southern comfort of course), check out the new bottle design. it looks anything but new––the aesthetics have been modeled after antique bottles and ragtime graphics. it’s pretty cool actually, the gwen approves.
(southern comfort was created by local new orleans bartender MW heron in 1874. “non genuine but mine” was originally writtten on all bottle labels by MW Heron to identify his unique spirit. the sign of approval still features on the lower label.)
oh, and if all this isn’t enough to have you running for the nearest spirit shop, this next piece of news certainly will: southern comfort has joined the undead––as in vampire undead. which is kind of fitting, seeing as southern comfort is 136 years old and counting. check out their new vampire lounge, where the burden of being human is so yesterday… time for a transformation. i must say, i couldn’t agree more, immortality for all!
southern comfort: 750 ml bottle £17.97/$19.99
