Campfire-Weekend-final-soul

If there’s a better way to spend a few cool summer evenings than around a campfire with some food and a few beers, we haven’t thought of it. Of course, just walking out unprepared would be foolish. Assuming you’ve got all your camping essentials covered—tent, sleeping bag, full, face-warming beard—here are the items you’ll want while you sit around the fire.

Pappy-Van-Winkle-Hot-Sauce

Pappy Van Winkle is the name in bourbon. Bottles have sent drinkers on wild goose chases and left others with empty bank accounts. While we can’t help you procure any of that elusive elixir, we can bring a little Pappy into your life in another way. Pappy Van Winkle Hot Sauce is aged in actual Pappy Van Winkle bourbon barrels. The distillery teamed with friends at Midland Ghost to make this flavorful hot sauce, which features the latter’s prized first generation Ghost Peppers. After the sauce was made, it was left to age in barrels that once held Pappy. That means you have a sauce that’s rich, oaky, and full of flavorful heat. Use it on meats, veggies, or, if you’re a special brand of crazy, just drink it straight from the bottle. It’s that good.
