“This is a savory cocktail that represents a form of Argentine cooking,” says creator Jess Lambert, Head Bartender at Boleo in Chicago. This tequila-based cocktail, the Tanglefoot, contains smoked tomato water, raspberry-basil syrup and lime juice. “The tomatoes are blanched, skinned, pulsed and strained through a cheese cloth to produce a beautiful tomato water that is then seasoned with smoked sea salt,” says Lambert. Basil is macerated in a bright, raspberry syrup and removed. “The tequila adds a soft, vegetal base.” It’s a good move when you need a break from the Irish whiskey this weekend.

Every tactical gear manufacturer offers something in the way of a tactical pen, but they’re not all as robust as the TriTac from StatGear. It’s engineered from aircraft grade aluminum with an ergonomic grip and bolt action pen lever, and the included Fisher Space Pen ink can write in all types of conditions, from a light drizzle to a stint in space. Obviously, no tactical pen is complete without a carbide window punch, but the TriTac goes above and beyond, adding a 440C stainless steel, razor sharp blade.
