It’s been a long year. So believe us when we say we’re ready for New Year’s Eve — that special time of year when counting in unison is fun, and exuberantly singing strangers seem kind of nice. Whether you celebrate in a packed club, alone under so many blankets, or up in space getting sauced […]
You might think you already know a lot about Maker’s Mark. There’s two reasons for this: The brand is extremely good at marketing, and its bourbon is intentionally unfussy and easy to like. Turns out there’s a lot more to know about Maker’s, though. The brand helped create and define bourbon culture and style, and, […]
There are plenty of reasons to not drink at a party. Maybe GOOP passive-aggressively commanded it. Maybe you don’t drink, never drank, or just quit. Maybe Kyle is at the party, and last time you saw Kyle you drunkenly tried to braid his beard (and you know Kyle would just love Sober You).
The Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies in Santa Cruz, Calif., is currently conducting a study using cannabis to treat veterans suffering from PTSD. It’s reportedly the “first-ever U.S. study of smoked cannabis for a mental health condition or medical condition.” It could lead to medication. To help people. Soldiers.

It’s totally normal and probably psychologically healthier to shut out the collective drinks marketing noise. “Mango Margaritas are here!” “Rosé all day, bae!” “Coconut Rum — your doctor says it’s the new water!” But this is one trend too good to keep to ourselves. This is Pineau des Charentes.
Enjoyed in 70 countries. Misunderstood in ours. Crafty before craft was such a big deal. Started by a milkman and now owned by the biggest brewing company in the world. Hoegaarden doesn’t necessarily rank among the sexiest beer to bring to a party. If anything, it occupies squarely awkward territory in the beer world: There’s […]
It’s cool. It’s vaguely medicinal-seeming. It’s made with stuff you could find in body wash or the Bible. At one point, it definitely probably might have contained opiates. It’s Fernet-Branca. Sure, it’s a shade of brown we tend to prefer squarely in the realm of chocolate desserts or fine wood furniture. And, yes, it’s been […]
