Right now, you’re probably thinking to yourself “why the hell do I need a book on etiquette?” We thought the same thing. But this book is actually quite helpful in all kinds of awkward, and normal, social situations. It’s written by Peter Post, a man that gets paid a bunch of money to fly around the world teaching big wigs about etiquette. He’s also written five books, had a New York Times Bestseller, writes for the Boston Sunday Globe and is the great-grandson of the famed etiquettitian (we made that up) Emily Post. In the world of etiquette, she’s Enzo Ferrari. Essentially, it’s like getting engineering lessons from Enzo Ferrari’s great-grandson (once he exists), except it’s about how to properly behave.

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.
