Just because you aren’t as dapper as Don Draper and can’t smoke or drink in your office doesn’t mean you can’t capitalize on the third best thing about Mad Men (Christina Hendricks is one and two) – a perfectly prepared cocktail. Put down your Vodka Red Bulls, your Jack and Cokes, and your beer because renowned food critic Fred Thompson is making bourbon cool again. We’re not talking passing fad (Uggs) cool, we’re talking vintage pocket watch cool. Thompson spells out everything you need to know about bourbon from its history to recipes for food and drink with pictures and instructions.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
