Harmless Harvest Introduces First Fair Trade Coffee Coconut Water

harmless harvest introduces fair trade coffee coconut water ccw variety

The day after a late-night bender can be tough. Your head hurts, your stomach aches, and all you want to do is rehydrate. Thank goodness for coconut water. Not only does it quench our thirst, it’s filled with electrolytes to help replenish all that water that drinking sucked out of our system. Justin Guilbert and Douglas Riboud — the guys behind one of our favorite coconut water brands, Harmless Harvest — are at it again, this time with the first 100 percent raw and organic coffee-infused coconut water on the market. Not only does it rehydrate, it gives you that badly needed energy boost that we all need from that lack of sleep. If you’re thinking , What — coffee and coconut water?! Trust us, it actually tastes amazing.

If you’re like us and you can’t get enough of Harmless Harvest, they have a whole line of coconut water beverages. Along with the original Harmless Harvest coconut water and the Fair Trade Coffee coconut water, there’s also a Dark Cacao flavor, which actually satisfied our never-ending chocolate craving, and Cinnamon & Clove, which sounded peculiar to us at first — until we tried it. It was something akin to rice pudding if you’re into that flavor.

So next time you’re in need of the rehydration that coconut water provides combined with an extra kick to wake you up, go for Harmless Harvest’s Fair Trade Coffee coconut water. Not only will it do both those things, it’s actual Fair for Life, both  Social and Fair Trade certified. What’s better than a beverage that is not just good for you, but also good for the environment?

Here’s how to make a margarita, according to top bartenders
The only margarita recipes you'll ever need

The best margaritas do not grow on trees, nor do they show up in a can (although there are some tasty canned drinks these days). No, the tastiest version of the tequila classic is made fresh, with love and care and some wisdom from a couple of top bartenders.

It's a balancing act, for sure, but when it's dialed-in, the margarita is one of the best and most refreshing cocktails ever devised. The classic mix of agave spirit, lime, salt, and a touch of sweetness is great alone or with any number of dishes, especially within Mexican cuisine (the nation where the drink was born).

Glasses of different kinds of wine

Trying to understand everything about wine all at once is an impossible endeavor. Wine is a beautifully complicated, ever-changing quiddity, and even the most decorated and prestigious wine experts in the world often find themselves confounded by its constant little surprises.
That isn't to say that, if you care to, you shouldn't become educated on the subject of wine. It's a hobby and a passion that's tremendously fun to pursue, and there's much to learn on the matter.
If you find yourself in the beginning stages of your wine education, just as in everything, you'll want to start with the basics. It's possible that up until now, you haven't put much thought into the several different kinds of wine there are, except for, say, red and white. But while there are obviously exceptions within every hard and fast rule, for the most part, wine can be broken down into roughly nine categories. Here we'll take a minute to break those categories down, explain what they mean, which wines fall into them, and, our favorite - how to drink those wines.

Sip these American Irish-style stout beers this St. Patrick’s Day
Great Irish-style stouts don't have to come from Ireland to be delicious
best american irish style stout beers left hand nitro

This year, why not put the Guinness down and reach for an American Irish-style stout for St. Patrick’s Day?
Okay, that does sound a tad ridiculous — and honestly, you can’t go wrong with Guinness at all — but American brewers are doing a heck of a job with their Irish-style stouts. 
Irish dry stouts are an awesomely simple style, brewed with roasted barley to give off qualities of coffee and chocolate while drying out the finish. Hops add a nice bitterness to balance it all out and it's often nice and thin for excellent drinkability. Generally low in alcohol content, these beers are surprisingly low in calories, too, and can be accentuated with a thick creaminess from nitrogen.
Like other beautifully simplistic beers, these smooth stouts are so often overlooked because big flavor is generally hot in craft beer. Big, boozy barrel-aged stouts and, now, sugary sweet pastry stouts are all the rage, so it's been tough for the American Irish-style stouts to gain any traction. Plus, Guinness was once often the only stout people knew about when there were essentially two beer styles in America: lager and stout. 
Never fear, however, with St. Patrick’s Day around the corner, Americans make darn good Irish-style stouts. Here are some of the best. (If you're more of a whiskey person, check out some of the best Irish whiskey.)
