Now that you have had a full week to get a handle on your mo, Canadian Club (Official Movember Sponsor) wants to present you with some flavors to savor later. Most are effervescent and quite refreshing with flavors that might surprise you. Hell, you might even get away of ordering one for your significant other.

A friendly disclaimer: Even the most badass ‘stache won’t make drunk music ok – you better know what you’re doing if you’re rocking two turntables or a microphone.

The Bandit

The Bandit

  • 1 ½ parts Canadian Club Whisky
  • 4 parts Club Soda
  • Lemon

This drink can really be summarized in one word – refreshing. It’s kind of like a mojito except with lemon and whiskey instead of mint and rum. You can taste the whiskey in the drink, but it really takes a backseat to the combination of the club and the lemon.

Burgundy

The Burgundy

  • 1 ½ parts Canadian Club Whisky
  • 4 parts Ginger Ale
  • Splash of Cranberry Juice

Let me preface this by saying that I’m not the hugest fan of cranberry, or ginger ale for that matter. With that said, I love The Burgundy. Burgundy, Burgundy, Burgundy. Here it goes down, down into my belly… It kind of tastes like a sweet, delicious cranberry kick in the mouth. Stay classy guys – order a pink drink.

The Flanders

The Flanders

  • 1 ½ parts Canadian Club Whiskey
  • ½ part sweet Vermouth
  • Dash of bitters

Well, this certainly seems odd, but, heh, who am I to question the work of the almighty Ernest Hemingway? The Vermouth really takes the bite out of the whiskey and infuses the drink with a number of herbs (except THAT one). It also happens to be the only one of the drinks that isn’t effervescent. This drink will put hair on your balls…even if it’s served in a martini glass.

The Magnum

The Magnum

  • 1 ½ parts Canadian Club Whisky
  • 4 parts Ginger Ale
  • Lime

One of the cliches of my profession is that to get information from a bartender you have to slip him bills of various denominations. Bills that you can’t afford with pictures of unfamiliar presidents and usually for information that isn’t worth it. Unless of course said bartender is holding the recipe to the Magnum. The Magnum is the yin to the Bandit’s yang, the missing lime half of the 7-up (or Sprite if you prefer) formula. In short, it’s effervescent, limey, and quite delicious.

 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.
