A tasty new seasonal beer from Ireland’s St. James’s Gate Brewery, it’s light, bright, and so drinkable. Turns out that the same yeast that makes a great stout imbues this beer with grapefruit, lemon peel, banana, and a hint of clove. Perfect for spring and summer shindigs.
THE BEST Drinks
As you can tell by their accents, the Imperials love tea time. ThinkGeek commissioned a weapon that annihilates productivity in the name of that sacred tradition. This ceramic set consists of a 12oz teapot and 6oz mug that can be stacked to look like the Death Star.
Sean Woolsey’s open-face home bar can hold 20 to 25 bottles, along with all of your barware, and up to 20 bottles of wine in the storage area. It’s made from powdercoated aluminum, with a black walnut pull out shelf for drink prep. Just be sure to mount it into wall studs!
While we’ve yet to taste Mucha Liga’s series of tequilas, this is one time when we’re willing to try a spirit strictly on the basis of its awesome packaging. Each bottle features a polygonal sculpt of a luchador mask. Bravo is a blanco, Canibal is a reposado, and Invicto is an añejo.

A drink connoisseur from Whiskey.com evaluates Fireball cinnamon whiskey with the same critical eye he’d turn towards any fine spirit. His flavor impressions start at 4:01. We appreciate his humble approach, but we still think this stuff tastes like Lavoris.
Fans of the Discovery show Moonshiners will want to grab a jar of Sugarland Shine’s sweet and aromatic concoction, based on Mark and Digger’s recipe for rum with real hazelnut flavor, and hints of vanilla, cinnamon, and honey. Tasty by itself, and spectacular in coffee.
A delightfully smooth, light, and slightly sweet blend of bourbon, Tennessee whiskey, and rye from the past three decades. It’s honey forward, with grassy undertones, and a bit of apple and spice on the finish. Sips easy on its own, and perfect for old fashioneds.
If there’s one bourbon we must always have stocked in our bar, it’s this one. A wonderfully smooth, perfectly balanced, and daily drinkable whiskey from select barrels of 8-to-12 year aged spirits. Its new bottle better reflects how special the spirit inside truly is.
Give yourself a boost of energy with a shot of espresso, any time and any place. Steamm’s hand-pulled 2oz. shots come from organic beans, have a touch of raw cacao, and are slightly sweetened with organic stevia or cane sugar. They’re super delicious with milk too.
In all honesty, we we’re pretty cynical about yet another pumpkin spice flavored thing, but Captain Morgan’s latest spiced rum concoction is truly delicious. You’ll want to sip this spirit all the time, not just in the Fall. Great alone, with apple cider, or ginger beer and lime.
Packets of small batch-roasted coffee beans. The packet doubles as a filter; all you need is a mug and some hot water to enjoy fresh coffee on the go. Libra uses part of its proceeds to donate water filters to indigent communities in Guatemala, where it gets its beans.
