GrandLife and Kanon were gracious enough to invite us to one of their awesome pool parties in Southampton this last weekend. This one featured one of our favorite bands, The Rapture, along with the usual Hamptons babe-fest, cool kids galore, incredible shrimp tacos and lots and lots and lots of Kanon vodka (which, by the way, gave us zero hangover the next day – new go-to!) We would’ve been soured on the whole thing when the bus transporting us back to New York got in a minor fender bender, but we collided with a truck pulling a BBQ smokehouse on wheels that gave us pounds of chicken, brisket and ribs to take home as consolation. GrandLife indeed.
I’m waiting until tonight to drink this bottle of Moonshine from Kings County Distillery. A Brooklyn rooftop seems like the choice place since the moonshine itself is made in Brooklyn, at New York City’s Oldest Whiskey Distillery. I bought this bottle at Thirst but, you can get it in Manhattan at Astor Wines & Spirits and Park Avenue Liquor Shop if you’re interested.
The first clear spirit from the House of Rémy Martin. Bay Area and folks from Atlanta, you’re in luck as the soon-to-be-drank is coming your way in September. And for those wondering how to pronounce it, it’s “Vee.”
I’ve been using a Mavea water filtration pitcher for around a month, and I couldn’t be happier. As evidenced by the shot of my fridge, all I do is drink water, and this makes it delicious. The design is pretty rad too, with four rubber corners on the bottom for supreme traction and sleek lines all around. Mavea pitchers are made in Germany by the company who sold the Brita naming rights to Clorox years ago, so if you want some luxury filtration with no bleachy associations, look here.
From Gavin McInnes:
“it’s a variation of a drink we discovered in LA called the Mexican car crash, which is a half pint of margarita with a beer stuffed in it upside down, a Mexican pileup is a pitcher of margarita with 2 to 8 beers stuck in it depending on pitcher size, then you use 151 to light the bottom of the beers on fire. It’s scorpion bowl meets car bomb meets Mexico. (invented by Bryce Fanich)”
One of the best bars in Wyoming, if not America. I spent the other afternoon in The White Wolf watching Madhouse, drinking Budweiser, and eating pretzels. It was ideal, and the taxidermy kept me comfortable. Also to be noted is that Elvis, the alligator from Miami Vice is stuffed in here as well.
