A juicer George Jetson would love, an external hard drive that doesn’t sap juice from your outlets, some Brazilian “juice” to make those caipirinhas pop and much more.


HELP. I’M BEING HELD AGAINST MY WILL AND FORCED TO WRITE A DAILY COLUMN FOR THIS PUBLICATION. IF ANYONE IS READING THIS PLEASE SEND A SWAT TEAM, AS MANY PRETZEL M&MS AS YOU CAN FIND, A BUNCH OF MERINO CLOTHING AND A LATE-’90s FERRARI 355 SPIDER. THIS IS LIFE OR DEATH. It’s also April Fools Day! Boy did I get you good. What a great prank. Anyway, here’s what’s new in gear: a juicer George Jetson would love, an external hard drive that doesn’t sap juice from your outlets, some Brazilian “juice” to make those caipirinhas pop and much more.



Though it’s currently available only in California, expect to see this juice-machine revelation on countertops nationwide. Instead of cramming veggies down a shoot and dealing with the mess afterward, fresh, juice-able produce ingredients come in packets, arranged specially for each different juice recipe. Pop the packet in, and the machine squeezes out the veggie blood; throw out the packet and enjoy. Clever.

Novo Fogo Single-Barrel Cachaças


From Tucker Bowe, Staff Writer: Introduce your tastebuds to Brazil’s national cocktail: the caipirinha. It’s simple to make, usually consisting of muddled lime, sugar and cachaça, a spirit similar to rum, but made with sugarcane rather than molasses. And in preparation for this summer’s Rio games, Novo Fogo has released four new limited-edition cachaças (named Barrel 86, Barrel 33, Barrel 152 and Barrel 87), each of which is barrel aged between one and five years.
