Make A PB&J For Grownups With This Wine-Flavored Jelly

A not-so-basic sandwich.

Do you hear that? It's the sound of thousands of adult-children (aka college kids) jumping for joy.

A California-based company, Drunk Jelly, has recently made waves on the internet for making a sweet spread that the drunk in mind but young at heart will be able to enjoy. The creators of wine jelly came up with their brilliant idea whilst enjoying a picnic in the park. Their picnic included a charcuterie board (fancy meats and cheeses) and wine, so the only thing they were missing was wine jelly.

Since both jelly and wine are made with grapes, it seems like a pretty obvious creation, no?

The company sells jellies in a variety of flavors. There's the ever-popular but never basic rose, a hearty merlot, a sweet moscato and even a light chardonnay. Don't know your wines? Just get one of their "wine flights" and pick out three you'd be interested in giving a whirl.

Enjoy the spreads on bread, with meat or cheese or, better yet, use it to make a fancy PB&J.

Unfortunately, all of the jelly is nonalcoholic, but what goes better with wine than more wine?

What Your Choice in Alcohol Says About You

Jager bombs are for frat dudes.

When it comes to drinking alcohol, we all have our beverage of choice. We know what we like and what we don't like, what tastes good, and what makes us puke our brains out after a night out.

If I were to go out on a date, or meet someone for the first time, I might judge him based on his drink order. The kind of alcohol you drink says a lot about you and the type of shit you're into. Here are some of my observations on what I think about your choice of alcohol.

Whiskey: If you're a girl and you "claim" to like whiskey, you're not a hard-ass. You probably don't actually like it, and whiskey sours don't count. I have yet to meet any female who actually enjoys taking straight shots of whiskey.

On the other hand, guys who like whiskey are hot. They remind me of cowboys or something. Yeehaw.

Scotch: Scotch is super luxurious and "mature". If you're a scotch drinker, you're probably sophisticated and cool, and have a few extra bucks lying around to spend on alcohol. You are the Chuck Bass's of the world.

Vodka: My personal favorite. If you're drinking vodka, you probably don't care what it tastes like, and you probably don't know what's going to happen by the end of the night. Vodka shots are for the people who drink to get drunk and have a great time. For that, I salute you.

Wine: Ah, wine. Perfect for a girls night in, or when you're out on a dinner date. You can't go wrong with wine, red or white, moscato or chardonnay. You're an easygoing, classy human with a good taste in beverages, congrats.

Tequila: Tequila is DISGUSTING, but it gets the job done. Good news is that after, like, three shots, you probably won't even realize how bad it tastes. Most of the people I know who drink tequila are crazy-ass girls who love to dance.

Champagne: Champagne is for celebrating, and terrible hangovers. If you're a college student and you're drinking champagne on the reg, stop. You're probably drinking Andr?, which is basically juice. If you're the girl walking around the party nursing a bottle all night, also stop. You're not getting drunk and you just look stupid.

Absinthe: I don't think I've ever come across anyone who has actually ordered something with absinthe. It tastes like ass, but if you're one of those people, that's kind of cool. You're probably into dark, weird shit because absinthe is like poison or witches' brew or something.

Rum: Rum is for people who don't know how to drink vodka, so they choose this instead. It's a good experimental drink for college kids who drink "rum and cokes". If you're a rum drinker, you probably like your drinks sweet, which speaks to your sensitive soul.

Gin: Gin is a drink for old retired guys who wear sweater vests. I really hope that none of you reading this are avid gin drinkers, because that would be a shame.

Beer: Almost every guy's go-to drink. College kids should probably get used to the taste of beer as soon as possible, because it's all you're gonna be drinking for the next four years of your life. Beer people are chill and are almost always down for anything. They're the types of people you want as friends.

Six Cocktails To Make This Summer

Who doesn't love a homemade cocktail?!

Sun's out, drinks up! One of my favorite things about summer is the day drinking, and we've got the best summery cocktails for you to try! Whether you're at the beach, by the pool, or just lounging on the patio, you'll need a pitcher of some sort of alcoholic concoction!

White Strawberry-Lemon Sangria
It's like the big-kid version of strawberry lemonade! You'll need two thinly sliced lemons, one apple (cored and sliced, any kind), one cup of lengthwise-cut strawberries, one bottle of white wine (chardonnay or sauvignon blanc works best), half-a-cup of rum, and four cups of lemon-lime soda. Pour the wine over a pitcher full of all the fruit and refrigerate for about four hours. Take it out, pour the lemon lime soda, and drink up!

Raspberry Limoncello
Because what's summer without Prosecco, right? All you'll need is three cups of chilled Prosecco, one cup of chilled limoncello liqueur, one cup of frozen raspberries, and six sprigs of fresh mint. In a large pitcher, mix the Prosecco and limoncello together, then serve over the raspberries, garnished with fresh mint. YUM!

Blackberry Whiskey Lemonade
This is for all you little whiskey girls out there. Gather up 12 oz. of fresh blackberries, half a cup of sugar, 7.5 oz of whiskey, 7.5 oz of lemon juice, one large rosemary sprig, and 6 oz of blackberry simple syrup. There are two parts to this fancy summer drank. For the blackberry syrup, put the blackberries and sugar into a small sauce pan over medium heat for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Strain the syrup to get the seeds out, then let it cool. Combine the syrup and the rest of the ingredients into a shaker with a handful of ice. Shake it (ow ow). Pour over ice into glasses and serve!

Maui Island Breeze
Vodka time! You can make it as a single drink or into a punch. To make it into a punch, you'll need 36 oz of pineapple juice, 12 oz of vodka (or more), half a cup of cranberry juice, and up to one liter of sparkling water or lemon-lime soda. Pour over ice, mix it up, and enjoy!

Palomas
My favorite... Tequila! You'll need 1.5 cups of tequila, 4.5 cups of grapefruit soda, juice from six limes, and a few extra limes to garnish with. Combine the tequila, grapefruit soda, and lime juice and stir to combine. Pour over ice-filled glasses and garnish with that lime. Cheers!

Ginger Peach Moscow Mule
Moscow Mules are the bosses of beer cocktails. To serve four, you'll need three large peaches, peeled ginger root, a fourth cup of fresh lemon juice, 1/4 cup of water, 6 oz. of vodka, 2 cups of ginger beer, lime or lemon for garnish. For the puree, cut the peaches in half and remove the pit (do not peel). Slice the peaches and reserve four slices for garnish. Combine the peach slices, ginger root, lemon juice, and water into a blender and puree until smooth. To make each cocktail, combine one cup of the puree with vodka in a large shaker filled with ice and shake until frosty. Divide into glasses over ice. Pour half a cup of ginger beer into each mug. Garnish with a lemon/lime and peach slice. Serve immediately!

With these recipes, you're sure to be the hostess with the mostest this summer... and for sure get your party on. Invite friends over for the day and play around with these recipes, because half of the fun is making them with the squad! You've got all summer, and every kind of liquor, so start experimenting! Warning: May Cause Lots of Running Man challenges.

How Much Wine Should You Drink Tonight?

Go ahead and pour another glass.

Just like any other basic bitch, I'm also in a relationship with wine. I actually have threesomes almost every night with my friends Pinot and Grigio. My favorite way to spend my nights are to come home after a tiring day and unwind with my bffs Moscato and Zinfandel. We really are like a tight little drunken family.

Sometimes I find myself wondering, "should I have another glass of wine or have I had enough?" More often than not, the answer to this question is yes, I should have another glass. I've designed the perfect way for you to know if you should keep on chugging that wine or if you should call it a night and go to bed.

Did you have a bad day?
If your answer to this question is yes, then immediately give yourself three or four (decent-sized) glasses of wine. There is literally no better solution to a shitty day than getting buzzed by your favorite wine companion.

Are you celebrating something?
Did you accomplish something at work today? Did you go to the gym? Did you do anything remotely productive today? Then celebrate it, bitch! The world (of wine) is at your fingertips. Don't go to bed! Chug, chug, chug.

Did you pay for this wine?
I'm pretty broke, like pretty fucking broke. Although wine is something I will always justify spending my money on, it's a whole other story if someone else bought this bottle for you. One time my boyfriend bought me a bottle of wine in anticipation of drinking it on a date night we had planned for later that week. He went wrong thinking that wine would remain unopened in my apartment, I obviously drank it that same night, by myself. No regrets and no shame, my friends. Free wine = drinkable wine, no matter the situation.

Is it Bachelor Monday?
Maybe The Bachelor isn't your thing, and I mean I guess that's fine but it's still a good excuse to drink. Literally just google Bachelor drinking games and you've already got your night laid out for you. Don't be surprised when you end up drunkenly screaming at the television screen. It happens.

Are you thinking about your ex-boyfriend?
Is your mind starting to tell you that maybe one text won't hurt, maybe you just want to catch up with him and see how he's doing? NO. Stop drinking, just stop it. Or at least just hide your phone and keep drinking until you forget where it is.

To sum it all up, basically the answer is always going to be yes, have another glass of wine. I don't know why I sometimes like to pretend that I know the boundaries of when to stop because clearly I don't. Drink on, ladies.

Top 10 Funniest Flavors Made By The Internet In The New Oreo Contest

Twitter is a weird place, man.

Oreo has decided to pull a Lay's on us.

Recently, the cookie company released a limited edition new flavor of Oreos called "Firework", but that's not the only reason to be excited.

Oreo is taking a page out of the Lay's potato chip strategy and are asking fans of the brand to come up with its next flavor. The winning idea is worth a whopping $500,000. And runners-up will earn cash too!

To enter, post your idea to Instagram or Twitter using the hashtags #myoreocreation and #contest. Oreo will select three finalists who will all win $25,000 and see their ideas hit stores next year. Then the masses will vote to select the $500,000 winner.

In honor of this new contest, I've pulled together a list of the most outrageous suggestions for new flavors that the Twitter-sphere has offered so far.

1. Poutine Cheese & Gravy

Excuse me while I puke...


2. Cannabis & Codeine Oreo

We'll call it "The Riff Raff Cookie".

3. Oreo's With A Lean Flavor

Not to be confused with the previous "Cannibas & Codine" suggestion.

4. Kevin's Chili Oreos

At least this would be an easier mess to clean up.

5. Ramadan Kareem Oreos

Not sure this constitutes a flavor.

6. Apple Ciders & Donuts Oreos

OK but like... I'm totally down

7. Catnip Oreos

Bye...

8. Pickles & Ice Cream Oreos

Not gonna lie, I'm intrigued.

9. Beef Jerky Flavored Oreos

That's gonna be no for me.

10. Buttered Popcorn Jelly Bean On Vanilla Oreos

Ok Satan.

What Your Choice of Wine Says About Your Personality

Chardonnay = future soccer mom.

Behind every wine lover is a personality to match their go-to glass of wine. Let's face it, as women in college, wine is our friend, our really good friend.

Moscato
If Moscato is your go-to wine then you're a basic bitch. I hate to break it to you, but chances are, you're one of those girls who gets too drunk at the pregame, proceeds to barely make it out and then wonders why you have such a bad hangover the next morning after chugging your Moscato, aka straight sugar and alcohol. You're definitely the girl who's always down to party, like always.

Pinot grigio
You have your shit together and you know not to expect anything from anyone. Pinot is bitter, but sweet at the same time and basically the best wine for girls trying to get their party on, but also keep their clothes on. If you're a pinot drinker then you're an independent boss ass bitch who doesn't need no man.

White zinfandel
If you're a white zinfandel drinker then chances are you're starting to get your priorities in line but you're not quite there yet. It's like you're dangling in between adulting and getting shit faced every night. You try to be sophisticated and handle your shit, but you still give no fucks and aren't ready to grow up yet.

Merlot
You're a low-key grandma. You'd rather spend nights in bed with a good book or Netflix and casually sip on your glass of merlot instead of rage facing and waking up the next morning full of regrets. Most of your friends don't understand why you're always making excuses to not go out and stay in bed, but you don't care. You do you, girlfriend.

Chardonnay
Did someone say classy? You are the best of the best when it comes to getting wasted, yet making sure you remain classy and poised. If you fast forward 10 years, you probably could find yourself at a dinner party with a bunch of other soccer moms talking shit about everyone who pissed you off that day.
