We’re Giving It Two Weeks Before Bruni’s Writing About Red Bull and Vodka


Hot on the heels of trying terrifying, society-destroying Four Loko, Frank Bruni pens a piece on coffee cocktails for this week’s edition of the Tipsy Diaries. But we’re still wondering why Joose, Four Loko’s chief competitor, has been lost in the caffeinated-alcohol conversation. In fact, a friend of Grub Street tried the stuff for the first time last night and described it thusly: “It was like chugging whiskey from the bottle while eating the world’s biggest wad of Big League Chew and then immediately doing a key bump of cocaine.” We bet Bruni’s gonna wish he’d gotten that line into his story.
