Does Crystal Pepsi make a good mix with alcohol?  Jersey Joe heads to O’Hara’s Downtown in Jersey City, New Jersey with a taste test challenge!

Crystal Pepsi was originally released after a flashy Super Bowl ad in 1993.  Sales were poor and the beverage was gone in less than a year.  Since then, it has almost gained cult status, and after a social media campaign returned to stores in August for an 8 week run.

THE 411

Name: Crystal Pepsi

What: clear cola reintroduced for a limited time only

Mixed with: rum, vodka, orange vodka

JERSEY JOE RECOMMENDS:

It’s really great that the Pepsi corporation has brought this classic soft drink back.  Let me know if you find any other great mixes with Crystal Pepsi.  However, you have to act fast… it’s only back on shelves for a limited time only.  It could go back into the vault for another 20 years!

[Kicking Back with Jersey Joe] One World Observatory

Jersey Joe checks out the observation deck, One World Observatory on top of One World Trade Center in New York City.

THE 411

What: One World Observatory

Where: top of One World Trade Center

Location: New York City

Purpose: observation deck, tourist attraction

Floors: 100-102

JERSEY JOE RECOMMENDS:

This is a great tourist attraction in New York City.  I never got to visit the original World Trade Center before it was destroyed, but I’m glad this is open to once again allow visitors a chance to experience the view.

There are a couple of things to remember… first, expect airport style security.  They check everything going in.  It is exactly the same security as you would expect at the airport.  The only difference — you are not required to take off your shoes, but everything else is the same. Hats, jackets, belts… they are all coming off!

Secondly, if you want to visit the bar or restaurant, you must purchase an observatory ticket.  There is no way around this.  So, don’t expect to just ride an elevator for a view just to go to the bar — you’re paying for the full experience.

The World Trade Center area is still a construction site.  As of this post, there are still massive areas of construction and the main transportation hub for the PATH and subways is still not complete.  Expect to find many temporary walkways and partially opened entrances at this time.

Jersey Joe checks out these hilarious, but rejected flavors of wine.

Wine, an alcoholic beverage made by fermenting grapes has been around for more than 9,000 years.  The earliest known discovery was in China, where thousands of pottery jars were uncovered.  Wine can be made from a number of fruits including apple and peach, with grapes being the most popular.

Jersey Joe and his friends gather at a local restaurant to sample a Moscow Mule.  How this adult beverage became popular on the East Coast, before traveling to the West Coast, and back!

Name: Moscow Mule

What: alcoholic adult beverage

Ingredients: ginger beer, vodka, lime juice

Traditionally served in: copper cup

IMG_7012.MOV.00_00_00_13.Still001

JERSEY JOE RECOMMENDS:

It’s another one of those drinks that was popular in the past and is making a comeback.  Craft cocktails are now all the rage, so more drinks like this will be added to bar menus.  It’s interesting how this became a fad in New York City, then went west, only to be mostly forgotten in the East.

I still think it would be better frozen, though…

And remember… drink responsibility!  Sorry kids, 21 and over – please!
