Coffee & Wine mixed together

Red Wine and Coffee – The Ultimate Combo or Not?

Mixing Coffee and WIne, is it good?

It's weirder than it sounds...

Red wine and coffee – two of the most common and enjoyable vices known to man. Ask anyone to list their greatest cravings and we're willing to bet that either coffee or red wine will unapologetically pop up. Very few drinks attract as much attention for their complexity as coffee and red wine.

From obtaining raw materials in highly specific regions to following delicate processing techniques, making these beverages is comparable to an art form. Now, if you had to pick between a glass of red wine or a mug of coffee, where would your loyalty lie? According to one company – Apothic Wines – you don't have to choose. They claim that coffee and red wine can be combined, giving you a taste of both worlds. Awesome, right?

We know mixing coffee-infused red wine sounds a bit odd (we also had our doubts), but reserve your judgment until after you've tasted the drink. This where coffee aficionados with their florid descriptions meet wine enthusiasts. If you're curious about how this combination gels together, read on as we highlight the tasting notes and health benefits of coffee-infused red wine.

Flavor Profile and Tasting Notes

Coffee and red wine have complex tasting notes on their own. So when you blend the two flavors, the outcome should be something familiar yet entirely new for your palate.

The Apothic wine boasts of a mocha undertone, hints of toasted oak, and fruity notes as a reminiscence to the ingredients. Using cold-brewed coffee helps in minimizing the bitterness and acidity of the combo for a smoother brew to caress your taste buds. Still not convinced? Then consider what your body stands to gain from coffee-infused red wine.

Sure, wine and coffee might be a potent mix of caffeine and alcohol – but they also bring their combined health benefits to the table. Case in point, both coffee and wine are touted to contain antioxidant properties that help protect the body from free radicals, which are associated with aging, an increased risk of developing cancer, and generally poor health.

Willing to Try Something New

Are you ready to change the way you consume alcohol? Apothic wine has an interesting idea to infuse red wine with coffee. The drink offers some of the most unique flavors that appeal to both red wine and coffee aficionados. But if you're expecting an extra electrifying buzz from the combo, you'll be disappointed because the wine has a considerably low caffeine content.

Yearning for some of this action? Make sure you use Wine Wipes/ Pearly Wipes to keep your teeth from staining... I get mine from Target. What's even more interesting about this style, is that it can be implemented at your favorite coffee shops, and will definitely make them stand out. Just ask the guys at Coffee Wingmen, they help coffee shops with attaining new customers. If you're not drinking wine & coffee on your night out, are you really making the most of your drink choices?

TikTok was banned by the president, but Instagram is here with its newest feature called Reel. Many of us are still wondering why TikTok was being banned in the first place. Was it all the dangerous TikTok trends? It was because of a security concern, but not in the way you might think.

TikTok is owned by Dancebyte, which is a China-owned company. Basically, just like any other app, TikTok collects the user's data. The main question to ask yourself when investing in any app or marketing tools who will be owning my data? So yes, China currently owns all the TikTok user's data worldwide.

I've always been a huge Disney villain fan — whether it was for their cryptic one-liners, enviable outfits, or sidekick banter. Some of the most iconic lines from cinematic history have been said by the characters we love to hate and occasionally dress up as once a year.

The fear-mongering Gaston I now find hilariously cringe-worthy is now charming and oftentimes considered by fans as rightfully justified in his actions. Die-hard fans of the Disney villain fan club claim alternate egos in their favorite evil characters, adopting their hilarious witticisms into everyday life.

I've been an athlete my entire life. I love movement and I've been jumping, kicking, swimming, dancing, throwing, you name it since I was in diapers. I'm also pretty competitive and probably went through a few sore loser phases. What can I say? I like to win, and losing can sometimes feel like I've failed. Especially, when your competitor is your best friend or someone that you worked all year long to defeat.

- I have extremely sensitive skin, which is why I have always resorted to a plant-based organic beauty line such as Radha Beauty.

- Radha Beauty won me over years ago when I was looking for organic skincare brands.

- I was so excited to see they launched a new line incorporating USDA organic rosehip oil, so when their PR team sent me some, I could not have been more thrilled.

- After a week of using the products, my face felt as smooth as a baby's, looked more glowy than ever, and even cured some of my summer sunburn.

Radha Beauty isn't just a best-selling beauty brand on Amazon — it's a USDA-certified organic beauty brand I live by, and anyone who knows me knows I am all about holistic wellness.

Typically, it only takes three days for me to tell if a skin product is working or not because I have extremely sensitive skin. It's also why I have always stuck by plant-based organic beauty lines such as Radha Beauty.

I have definitely had my fair share of breakups. I broke up with my high school sweetheart my second semester of college (he was cheating on me), I had a breakup with another guy I thought I was going to marry, and others in between. Regardless of whether you're the one doing the dumping or being dumped, breakups can HURT.

Social media is something many of us have been addicted to (whether we want to believe it or not) since the moment we got it. I remember getting Facebook at 10. Instantly I was hooked. I loved being able to share my life with people, a little too much in my opinion, and I loved being able to see how/what other people were doing all the time.

I have always felt left out because of how I look and who I am. I have always felt like the elephant in the room, literally. I have always been shamed for my size. For the longest time, I cared so much about what I wear and who I wore certain things in front of. I never wanted to wear shirts that would show a lot of my arm, located above my elbow. I wouldn't wear shorts that didn't go to the tip of my knees, at least. I never wore anything remotely tight, where you could see every curve, roll, or imperfection. I was so insecure about myself, and not many of my friends knew.

Your Social Activism May Actually Benefit From A Cleansing Social Media Detox

In the craziest year of our lives, sometimes there's value in taking a break.

We are living through, unequivocally, one of the most dangerous, unstable, chaotic periods of any of our lives. From COVID-19 to crises of police brutality to the mass exploitation of the poor by mega-corporations, the world outside seems to be looking more dystopic every day. What can be done about it? For many, activism involves heavily posting on social media to keep others aware. However, this comes with a net negative cost — increased levels of anxiety, depression, and hopelessness about the state of the world. Why might this be? After all, in past eras activists have endured comparable and greater levels of abuse and relentless torment from oppressors. Why, now, are people getting so easily burnt out?
