The combination of booze and other products is a time honored tradition. Like cheese, booze makes everything better. You can combine it with cake, j-e-l-l-o, hookah or chocolate in order to improve the base product. Actually, come to think of it, booze might be our favorite baking ingredient next to cheese. Chocolates filled with booze have been around for as long as we’ve enjoyed the taste of liquor, but they’ve never been as cool as the Helluva Caucasian collection from Twice the Vice. As if booze in your chocolate wasn’t good enough, Twice the Vice Lebowski’d everything about these chocolates. Apparently, in today’s times a White Russian is really a “Caucasian” (we haven’t tried this at the local watering hole…yet) so that’s where the name comes from. Each of the 9 chocolates (The Dude abides 9 times in the movie) also bears the familiar face of the guy takin’ ‘er easy for the rest of us. Part memorabilia, part liquor, part chocolate and enjoyable on Shabbos.

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.
