PECAN STREET RUM


SAME TECHNIQUE, DIFFERENT TASTE
words: jasmine vallejo photos: lime fly photography • juan gonzalez

P
ecan Street Rum is the newest rum in town. With being in
the market for only two months, things have quickly taken
off for the newly favored rum. It has a very versatile taste;
Pecan Street Rum can have a different flavor with different
mixers. A motto of “nice on ice, and mixes with everything,”
Study Breaks can’t think of any other way to fulfill that certain
sweet spot. The sole distributor for Spirit of Texas Distillery,
Michael Rajski, gave us the low down on the rum.

What does Pecan Street Rum taste like?


It has a dual flavor profile. If you have a drink with a cola
product, you can taste the pecan flavor, and with a lemon lime
soda product you can taste the oak flavor.  

Why the name Pecan Street Rum?


For two reasons: the distillery for Pecan Street Rum is
located in Pflugerville, TX, and the main street is Pecan
Street. The second is in honor of 6th Street, which was once
named Pecan Street.

What is the best way to drink PSR?


Since our motto is “nice on ice and mixes with everything,”
Michael Rajski
we have experimented many ways to drink it. One way is to
Position: Sole Distributor
for Spirit of Texas Distillery make a Mango Mojito. Mixing PSR with amaretto, cranberry
(Producer of Pecan Street Rum) juice and a squeeze of lime is also great. I personally think it
has a whiskey taste when it’s mixed with Sprite. We are still
experimenting with different ways to drink.

What has the reaction to Pecan Street Rum been like?


The reaction with PSR is very positive. People try it
and love it!

Where can we purchase Pecan Street Rum?


You can purchase PSR at all Spec’s in Austin. Twin’s retail
on 7th Street also carries the rum and by the beginning of
February 2011, it should be at all Twin’s.

How is Pecan Street Rum different from other rums?


PSR is unique because it’s a rum product made with whiskey
distilling techniques.

If PSR could stand for something else, what would it be?

WHAT
WOMEN
WANT
words: jasmine vallejo photos: kaitlyn clement

THE WAIT IS OVER


Excuse us if we’re a little... honest.
We’ve got the inside scoop from
these four sexy ladies.
Let’s be honest. The confusion
of what women want is a mystery
to all. Men often generalize that
women are completely polar op-
posites of them; however, we are
more alike than you think. Guys,
we sympathize with you. The fe-
male mind is very confusing—
even to us. Relationship experts
are full of statistics, percentages,
and new advice that are either right on target or seem
outrageously ridiculous. Study Breaks will not fill you in
with numbers; we went straight to the ladies and asked
them what women want and how you can provide it. Em-
bracing these tips can help in understanding the com-
plexities of the female mind.

Sex= Exercise

SEX ONCE A DAY


Sex is the most beneficial exercise there is. Not only
is it way better than running on a treadmill, but it
stimulates both the body and the mind.
Boom-boom time can improve your physical health

KEEPS THE DOCTOR AWAY more than you think. It’s not just the calories you’re
burning, but sex has been linked to improvement in
the immune system, cardiovascular health and pre-
Stressed out? Having trouble sleeping? Feeling vention of prostate cancer.
guilty for having another pint of Ben & Jerry’s on
movie night? Well, we’ve got the remedy for you, Orgasms Increase Your Lifespan
and it’s not Advil. Studies have shown that a woman’s ideal day should
involve at least one orgasm. While we can all agree
words: adi pavlovic that a daily orgasm sounds pretty ideal, it can be
tough to fit in your schedule, especially if you’re
single. That’s when plan b (masturbation) can come
in “handy.”
Over 50 percent of women have trouble reaching the
big “O,” so don’t worry, the benefits from sex extend
beyond reaching a climax. Sex releases feel-good
hormones into your bloodstream whether you or-
gasm or not. This hormone, known as Dehydroepi-
androsterone, (DHEA), can increase your lifespan.
It repairs tissue, improves cognition, keeps your skin
healthy and even works as an anti-depressant.

Stress Reduction
Do you notice how much calmer you are after sex?
A huge benefit from a healthy sex life is the stress
reduction. Sex not only lowers your blood pressure,
but also makes you respond easier to stress outside
the bedroom. It can solve your headache or insomnia
by simply relaxing your whole body.

Immune Booster
Not only is sex healthy for you, it helps make sure
you stay healthy. Every time you get lucky, your
body releases immunoglobulin A, which protects
you from getting colds and infections.
Just because it is healthy, however, doesn’t mean
you should jump at every two-legged-opportunity.
Casual sexual relationships, while fun, can become
the source of emotional disorders and depression.
The best sex for you is one that involves affection
and love.

Hormones that Make You Happy


Sex with a stable partner not only provides emotional
support, but it increases levels of the love-hormone
known as oxytocin. This hormone gives us the warm,
fuzzy feelings when snuggling next our mate. Not
only does it make you happier, but it is linked with a
feeling of generosity explaining why we always smile
the morning after.

Get To It
Knocking boots, making love, getting down--call it
what you want-- but being sexually active plays a
major role in living a healthy life style, so remember:
sex once a day keeps the doctor away.
