Life Hack: Tsamma watermelon juice makes a great cocktail mixer
Photograph by Savanna Sturkie

If your summer has been sadly void of watermelon-based cocktails, there’s an easy fix: Tsamma watermelon juice. “The dangerous thing about Tsamma is that there’s not an alcohol on the planet that doesn’t mix well with it,” says founder Sarah Frey-Talley. Her tip: Freeze the juice to create a slushy drink. In early to mid-summer, much of Frey-Talley’s watermelon supply comes from South Georgia and Florida. The juice is processed in Florida and shipped to stores within a few days of harvest. Available in Atlanta-area Krogers and Fresh Markets, $2.99 for 12 ounces.

Neighbors Say BluePrint Juice Factory Is Ruining Their Lives

Source: Grub Street NY


The juice is loose, and the forklifts are loud.

Neighbors complain they can’t get shut-eye because workers are clanking more or less around the clock at the LIC-based BluePrint Juice factory, which turns out those expensive cold-pressed juices sold at places like Whole Foods. The blends may be much-beloved by cleansers, but residents of adjacent buildings tell DNAinfo that the juice elves are perpetually emptying Dumpsters and break out the forklifts to unload trailers in the early morning hours.

This sort of seems like a case of a few persnickety neighbors living too close to a manufacturing zone, and the ...

juicegraysferrypyunkpost.jpgPassyunk Post has the early report on ¡Juice!, a new vegan juice bar on Grays Ferry Ave, just below South St. The space used to be home to Betty’s Speakeasy, which closed over the summer after a five-year run. The menu is pretty much what you’d expect — juices and smoothies with optional superfood add-ins, vegan baked goods, sandwiches on the way — but their liberal BYO policy flouts some expectations (yes, they’re OK with you bringing a little something to spike your juice with). Coffee is also on the menu, via L’Aube Torrefaction. [P’yunk Post] [Photo: ...
