What to Drink This Weekend: The Tommy Gun

The Tommy Gun was inspired by the fall/winter harvests in New York State. It’s made up of pear liqueur, bitters, Connemara, lemon juice, cane syrup, cardamaro, rye and Armagnac. The flavors of apple and pear combine with walnut to give it a rich, warming flavor. “We used spirits that compliment a nutty flavor while keeping the cocktail dry and crisp,” says Black Tail bartender Harrison Ginsberg. “A touch of connamara was used to bring in a subtle smoke note reminiscent of wood fire.”

The Ridge is a modern, slim, front pocket wallet, made to declutter the modern lifestyle. The main compartment is an expandable card holder, for any and all forms of plastic payment and identification. Attached to that is your choice of a money clip or cash strap for when old fashioned paper money is your best option. Being on the smaller, compact side means the Ridge doesn’t encourage the typical flotsam and jetsam acquisition of the traditional leather bi-fold, with its faded receipts and unnecessary cards. The Ridge re-evaluates your everyday carry and gets rid of the bulk.
