Piss Drunk
Bringing a whole new meaning to the phrase "Piss Drunk", James Gilpin, a recent Design Interactions graduate from London, has created a whiskey that processes urine into whiskey. Gilpin, who is diabetic himself, takes the urine from elderly people who have diabetes and is able to ferment the urine into single malt whiskey due to the abundance of sugars that are excreted by diabetics. Thankfully, he has no plans of selling his Gilpin Family Whiskey (he used some of his grandma's liquid gold, we're guessing that's how he got the name) but if you're lucky enough to be in Earls Court London September 23 - 26 you can sample his goods (and his grandma's) at the 100% Design Show.

It's Bacon!
National Bacon Day is September 4 and since we are huge fans of bacon, we're going to give you a different bacon treat for the rest of the week. First up, Brown Butter Candied Bacon Ice Cream. The bacon is baked in brown sugar until it's crispy, then chopped into tiny pieces, which should give the ice cream a nice crunch. Yum! Next up, Bacon and egg cups.
