Naked Juice is getting a makeover, following a lawsuit alleging that the brand’s labels are misleading consumers. The changes will be rolled out within the next eight months as part of a settlement agreement, Fortune reports.
Naked Juice’s parent company, PepsiCo, denied the claim by the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI), a consumer advocacy group.

Flipping through cocktail books from 100 to 200 years ago, it’s obvious that many bartenders did not have the same foresight. In our search through 50 cocktail books that were published between the 1820s and 1940s, we found quite a few cocktails with names that we’re glad were lost to history. (Many…
