FDA's 215 Recalled Hand Sanitizers as COVID Cases Ramp Up For The Holidays

  FDA's 215 Recalled Hand Sanitizers as COVID Cases Ramp Up For The Holidays Hand sanitizers are important during the holiday season, when hands you've never seen touch the objects you buy for loved ones. There are safe hand sanitizers, then there are these recalled by the FDA for toxicity.Whether you are shopping for yourself, a loved one or a secret Santa, hand sanitizers could perhaps be in the mix. Not particularly for a gift, but maybe for yourself or your family. Not all hand sanitizers are safe, though, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

We're a full month past Dry January, but there's no reason why you can't keep that vibe going for the rest of the year. If you're a gin lover but have realized that it doesn't always love you back, then you're in luck: Tanqueray has just announced the release of its new Tanqueray 0.0, an alcohol-free spirit that has been crafted to taste just like its higher-proof sibling.

According to Tanqueray, its 0.0-percent version is made with the same combination of botanicals that it uses in "traditional" Tanqueray, a list that includes angelica, coriander, juniper, and sweet licorice. So, it sounds like the only difference between the two is the ABV.

New Christmas spirits are inspired by your favourite festive treats

  New Christmas spirits are inspired by your favourite festive treats More liqueurs infused with Christmassy flavours are hitting shelves than ever before. British drinks expert Helen McGinn gives her verdict on a selection ahead of Christmas.And that’s actual spirits, with more whiskies, gins, vodkas and liqueurs infused with all sorts of Christmassy flavours hitting the shelves than ever before.

"Our expert innovation team has combined years of expertise and historic Gin distilling knowledge to create a credible alcohol-free experience," Tanqueray's master distiller Terry Fraser said in a statement. "[T]he botanicals are individually immersed in water, heated and then distilled before being expertly blended together to capture the essence of Tanqueray in a delicious alcohol-free alternative. This special distillation process is a closely guarded secret, known only to a handful of people and we are incredibly proud to be bringing gin drinkers that juniper and citrus led taste they're expecting from Tanqueray when they choose not to drink alcohol."

An increasing number of companies have expanded into the non-alcoholic spirit market in the past couple of years. Tanqueray is one of the biggest names to produce a zero-booze gin, but there are several other options for anyone who's ready to break out the tonic and lime. Monday ($40) is a California-made version that "that satisfies like a classic London Dry," according to its website. Australian brand Lyre's has a Dry London Spirit ($35) that received a Bronze medal in last year's San Francisco World Spirits Competition. (It also has an elegantly dressed pigeon on the label; we're suckers for any animal with a monocle.)

  This pink Prosecco cocktail is the only drink you need when the ball drops New Year's Eve may look a little different this year.

In December, Gordon's—one of Tanqueray's labelmates at London-based spirit producer Diageo—also released a 0.0 percent version of its traditional London Dry Gin. (And, perhaps unsurprisingly, the statement Gordon's released was very similar to the one that accompanied Tanqueray 0.0 percent, right down to the "closely guarded secret" of its distillation process.)

Tanqueray 0.0 percent is expected to be on shelves throughout the United Kingdom and Spain next month, and will retail for £16 ($22). And, with any luck, maybe it'll appear in the United States before the next Dry January—or the next dry month of your choice.

How to Have the Perfect, Martini-filled Valentines Day, According to Designers Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent .
The celebrity design duo share how they really feel about Feb. 14.Just because the two fall on different ends of the Valentine's spectrum, however, doesn't mean there aren't special memories for the couple. "I think I can speak for both of us," said Berkus, "that our absolute favorite memory of Valentine's Day has nothing to do with either of us, but it was last year when our daughter Poppy, who's six now, was old enough to realize that she could create her own handmade Valentines for everyone else in her school." Now, according to the couple, almost everything is viewed through the perspective of their two young kids.
