  • My Father In-Law Loves Pilot Flying J Coffee!

    There are two things that are essential for a travel stop to have aside from gas at a good price - clean bathrooms and good coffee. I've known Pilot Flying J usually has good bathrooms and gas, but as a non-coffee drinker, I've wondered how their coffee really was. So, when I was driving through Michigan last month with my father-in-law I asked him about their coffee and he said that's where he loves to stop.

  • Basil Mezcal Margarita Recipe

    In honor of Mexican Independence Day, I'm sharing a tasty little recipe from Zinum Mezcal for their Basil Margarita!

    Happy Scotch Day everybody! Even though Scotch is better known as a sipping spirit, it's exciting to see more and more mixologists breaking with convention and creating new experiences for our pallets like this Tartan Collins by Jordan Felix of Portland, Oregon featuring Laphroaig Select.

  • Exploring the Smirnoff House and Electric Daisy Carnival 2016

    Thanks to Smirnoff I had an amazing opportunity earlier this month. I got to go to the Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) in Las Vegas, where I was exposed to a lot of new things and perhaps most importantly discovering a new side to the brand as well as people I had previously dismissed as "those silly club kids".

  • How To Survive Summer Parties Like a Pro

    This summer, it's time to learn how to party like a man - and that means being able to wake up the next morning and go to work, mow the lawn, or relax with the kids. To do that right, it means that you might need to change your drinking patterns but you can still have fun. Years ago I used to be able to drink beers and margaritas with little to no consequences. Unfortunately, my body just isn't as forgiving these days, so here are a few tips that those of you like me can employ to help make this year a bit more fun and enjoyable!

  • Conquer The Dragon with Gulden Draak

    As someone who hails from one of the top beer areas in the US, it's easy to forget that beer has a heritage that spans for hundreds of years. Despite the popularity of some of my "West Coast" favorites, it's refreshing to step back in time and try something that's been being brewed for hundreds of years like I did recently with Gulden Draak out of Belgium. 

  • How to Plan An Epic Camping Trip This Summer

    A camping trip can be an amazing experience mentally as well as physically. When done properly, it can be an exercise in enjoying the beauty of nature, the company of the people who are with you and a chance to bond as men.  Done poorly and it can be a complete nightmare filled with cranky people and a general feeling of "when is this going to be over". Here are some tips to make sure your next outdoor adventure is a blast and not a bust.

  • Introducing New Pistachio Iced Coffee At Dunkin' Donuts

    With summer almost here, it's time to think about how you're going to cool off during the hot summer months. Personally I love ice cream and pistachio is one of my all time favorite flavors so I was super excited when Dunkin' Donuts asked me to share with you news about their new Pistachio flavored Iced Coffee.

  • Tour the Jack Daniels Distillery

    For those of you that find yourself anywhere near the Lynchburg, Tennessee area, I highly recommend swinging by the Jack Daniel's distillery and taking a tour. Even those who might not be bourbon drinkers (or drinkers at all), will enjoy learning about the rich history of the area. Jack Daniel's has become iconic in American culture and the tour is great for those who might not know anything about the man or for those that do, it will just fuel your fascination.

  • Extra Special Mike's Raspberry Christmas Cocktail

    I'm in love with the seasonal Mike's flavor - Glacier Berry, but I also love the classic Lemonade. It's a tough time to be a fan I guess, but regardless of how your taste buds guide you, one thing is for certain. Mike's are great to share with friends this holiday season. To help celebrate, I created a special cocktail to settle my dilemma and make something extra special for the holiday party I had this weekend [modify based on posting date].

  • Beyond The Margarita - Tequila Cocktail Recipes for The Bold

    There’s something to be said about trying a new cocktail for the first time, especially those from off the beaten path that are unexpectedly delicious. If you’re like me, you’ve probably enjoyed tequila just a couple of ways, neat or in a margarita. So when I was asked to look at a fall cocktail lineup based on tequila, I became puzzled with delight.

  • Bourbon Cocktail Recipes to Keep You Warm This Winter

    This evening, the air is cold and blowing a through a sky broken by large clouds. Inside, my fireplace and kitchen stove churn with heat enough to warm my home, but I’m left wanting warmth that only comfort food can provide – and well, a comforting drink too.

  • TUACA Cocktail Recipes You Can Make at Home

    Right now is a great time to be a fan of cocktails and spirits. It seems like virtually every day I hear about something new that piques my interest but only a handful have I had a chance to actually sit down and create cocktails for. Recently I was invited to test out TUACA, a fantastic vanilla citrus liqueur that is said to trace its roots all the way back to Lorenzo de Medici and later became popular in the United States after servicemen brought it home from Italy during WII. In the classic pattern we've seen with cocktails in general, TUACA is starting to become popular again with a whole new generation. 

  • Four Things You May Not Know About Grey Goose Vodka

    If you’ve spent any time in a high-end bar or club, then you’re probably aware that Grey Goose is a brand that essentially invented the ultra-premium vodka market. It was conceived for United States consumers in 1996 by the genius promoter, Sidney Frank, the man behind the success of Jägermeister. The story of a completely new product coming out of nowhere, made popular by celebrities, and bearing a premium price-tag have led many to label Grey Goose a gimmick, or even a scam.
  • Zwack is Wack! It's Time to Try Something New

    Sure, I love my bourbon, rum and tequila but sometimes it's fun to step out a bit and try something new. I can't count the number of times I've browsed the aisles of the liquor store wondering about a bottle and I am sure you've done the same. Honestly spending $20-$30 to try something new is a small investment compared to the enjoyment you may receive by discovering a new favorite or event sharing the experience of trying something new with friends.

  • Great Crown Royal Recipes from the Jeff Kyle Brickyard 400

    Recently I was hosted by Crown Royal to attend a weekend of fun at the Jeff Kyle Brickyard 400.  During the weekend we were educated by Master of Whiskey (MOW) Stephen Wilson on the Crown Royal distilling process and how they come up with the blends they use in their whiskeys. 

  • Cocktails Inspired by Men's New York Fashion Week

    Men's fashion is in vogue these days and top brands are looking to associate themselves more and more with this emerging market. The folks over at BACARDI and Grey Goose even created some recipes inspired by what they saw on the runways and we think they sound delicious! These are two of the cocktails that were served earlier this month at the Men's New York Fashion Week.
