road-trip-900

It’s finally nice enough outside to warrant using some of those “sick” days you racked up at work on something other than playing hooky. Schedule some time off, send out a mass text, jump in a car (rented or borrowed) and hit the road. To where? Who knows. That’s up to you. Personally, we just need to get away from it all, so middle-of-nowhere Wisconsin sounds as good as Atlantic City. It’s hard to justify $400 for plane tickets anywhere these days, so split the cost of gas and Combos (only the pretzel ones) and get to it. Remember: it’s about the journey and not just the destination.

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.
