A friend of mine recently introduced me to a new(er) vodka called "Ciroc." It had my attention due to the fact that it is made from fine French grapes. The grape varietals used are Ugni Blanc from the Cognac region and Mauzac Blanc grapes from the Gaillac region. The grapes are "snap frost," cold fermented and distilled five times. I found the Vodka to be very aromatic and VERY smooth. It also enhances a huge variety of mixers. The price is right as well as the ingredients. Check it out, you will be pleasantly surprised!

Vending machines generally offer up sodas, candy bars and chips. Not so for the one created by TED Fellow Gabe Barcia-Colombo. This artist has dreamed up a DNA Vending Machine, which dispenses extracted human DNA, packaged in a vial along with a collectible photo of the person who gave it.
