Learn how to infuse vodka with Jolly Rancher candies. You can whip up batches of five Jolly Ranchers Vodka flavors in only twelve to fourteen hours with minimal labor on your part, so they make wonderful, affordable, memorable gifts, too. What you get in the end pure vodka, so they’re very strong on the alcohol. The flavors are exactly what you’d expect: at first, you just taste the Jolly Ranchers in liquid form, exactly like the candies always tasted. Then the vodka kicks in with its characteristic flavorless burn. You can definitely drink these straight up as flavored martinis or shooters, and they’re a lot of fun.

Contemporary-Property-California-11

California-based design studio Swatt Miers Architects have designed the Garay House project. Completed in 2010, this contemporary property can be found in Tiburon, California, USA.

According to the architects: “The owners wished of one day transforming their low, one-storey home into a setting befitting their spectacular site perched above San Francisco Bay. Their dreams began to be realized in 2005 with the design of an extention, coupled with the complete renovation of their existing contemporary Californian house.

“The site is a half-acre south-facing hillside parcel, with unobstructed views of San Francisco Bay to the south, east and west. Responding to the physical conditions of the site, the new contemporary Californian house is almost entirely opaque on the north side where a new entrance motor court is defined by a rhythm of five ‘free-standing’ stone-clad walls. Slivers of glass separate the stone panels, creating a strong rhythm while giving little hint of the extraordinary spaces and views on the other side.

“The progression of space begins with a low, compressed entry, leading to a higher circulation spine. Bathed in light from clerestory windows and skylights, the spine overlooks the new living, dining and kitchen ‘pavilion’, and new south-facing terraces, with world-class views of San Francisco Bay beyond. Frameless glazing, pocketing glass doors, and dramatic cantilevered roof extensions seamlessly connect interior space to exterior space, blurring the boundary between two.”
