Cold Brew Your Own Cheaper and Better Tasting Coffee Liqueur
Shared article from Feedly via Lifehacker

Infuse liquor with coffee and you'll get a strong coffee brew with a big kick. Instead of brewing the coffee hot and combining it with the alcohol, try a lazier cold brew method for a smoother, sweeter coffee liqueur.

Depending on the alcohol and coffee you use, you could also save money on your homemade coffee liqueur—and you'll also be able to control the quantity and quality of the brew. WonderHowTo steeped half a cup of coffee in two cups of ice-cold vodka overnight and afterwards added vanilla and sugar for a Kahlua-like drink (although, yes, Kahlua is typically a rum-based drink). They also used Scotch whiskey as the coffee steeping liquid.

The results? Pretty damn good. Both the coffee-and-vodka and coffee-and-Scotch brews were smooth with no hint of acidity. Best of all, both tasted like coffee—real honest-to-goodness coffee, but with a massive, for-adults-only kick.

And because the steeping process was so long, I could taste different notes of fruits, nuts, and spice in the coffee, all of which were amped up by the alcohol. Once I added agave and vanilla to the vodka version, I proclaimed it the best homemade Kahlua I'd ever produced.

Cold brewing coffee might be the better method to go with this, because it cuts the acidity of the coffee.

Check out WonderHowTo's article for more details and tips.

The Key To Better Work? E-mail Less, Flow More
Shared article from Feedly via The Next Web
This post originally appeared on the Crew blog. Have you ever felt like all you do is check your e-mail? Well, you may not spend ALL your time checking your e-mail but you do spend about 28 percent of your time doing it. That translates into about 13-hours a week or 650 hours a year of e-mail checking. For those of us who work in a job where e-mail isn’t our main responsibility, checking and responding to e-mails each day can take us away from our primary work, which results in less productivity. In fact, our incessant need to respond to e-mails at work is actually...

Science Explains Why the Best BBQ Is Slow Cooked
Shared article from Feedly via Lifehacker

If you want the tastiest, juiciest, most tender BBQ for your gatherings, YouTube series It's Okay To Be Smart explains how slow cooking with smoke is the best way to go.

Joe Hanson describes the cooking process as similar to making Jell-O. When your meat is slow cooked the collagen in the meat gradually turns into gelatin, and that's what makes it tender. Slow cooking also renders the fat in meat, making it juicier and more flavorful. Additionally, slow cooking with wood smoke will do wonders for flavor. Wood is filled with cellulose and lignin, and when burnt slowly, the cellulose caramelizes into sugar molecules that flavor the meant and the lignin converts into a variety of aromatic chemicals that add flavor as well.

So there you have it: science has spoken. If you want the best BBQ, prepare to be in it for the long haul.

Set Aside an “Honesty Hour” For Better Family Communication
Shared article from Feedly via Lifehacker

In relationships, sometimes we're afraid to say how we feel. Try instituting an "Honesty Hour" with your significant other so you can say what you feel without fear of reprisal.

Relationship blog Your Tango suggests scheduling a time to talk about your true feelings instead of keeping them to yourself:

This is the time you can tell each other how you truly feel about things with complete immunity. For example, if you don't like football, but your boyfriend/husband expects you to be there every Sunday, tell him.

This exercise will eventually allow you to share the truth about everything and respect each other's opinions – without taking anything too personally."

This isn't an excuse to be mean or vindictive, of course. It's more like the military phrase "permission to speak freely." Ideally couples are honest with each other all the times, but for those couples struggling, this is a good tip. The surprising result is you may find that your partner agrees with your opinion, but was too afraid to speak up for fear of hurting your feelings.

Leave Problems at the Office with the “Walk in the Door" Rule
Shared article from Feedly via Lifehacker

After a rough day, we tend to come home and complain about all our troubles at the office. Change that habit by saying one great thing that happened at work today.

My Mom used to ask me what I learned today at school to help give me a positive outlook. This rule applies in a similar context to those of us with slightly more complex lives than grade-schoolers. A thread on Quora asked for tips on happiness and Brad Einarsen suggested:

When I arrive home from work, the very first thing I tell my wife is the best thing that happened that day.

No exceptions. No complaining. Just the best thing that day, even if it was just a good cup of coffee. This had the effect of starting our evening off on a positive note and it changed our relationship.

Of course, you don't have to tell your wife. You can tell your husband, significant other or your roommate. You can even just post it on social media if you live alone. The goal is to leave more troubles at the office and enjoy your time at home. It's easy to gripe the crappy stuff in your work day. It's harder to find those positive moments.

Clean Your Garbage Disposal With Used Coffee Grounds
Shared article from Feedly via Lifehacker

Just like your kitchen trash can, a garbage disposal starts to stink if you don't clean it regularly. After all, it's got garbage in it. Used coffee grounds along with some other kitchen ingredients makes cleaning a snap.

We've covered many ways of repurposing used coffee grounds before and cleaning your garbage disposal, but here's a way to combine them both into pre-made cleaning pellets.

Ice and salt is a more popular method of cleaning your disposal, but it doesn't kill the smell and the ice melts quickly. PopSugar has a recipe that includes mixing used coffee grounds along with epsom salts, baking soda and some vinegar. The coffee grounds, which you've got lying around anyway, help get rid of smells and hold the pellets together. You've got like the smell of coffee for this tip to work, of course. You can also change the scent with some vanilla or other extract. Mix it all together, let it dry overnight and then they're ready to go.

These pellets don't take up space in your freezer and you can store them on the countertop by the sink. They're always right there when you need them. Throw one in each day to keep your disposal running smooth and smelling great. The link has the full recipe.
