With the NFL season only a few days away, the time is right to stock up on tailgating necessities. We’re talking about bottled water and all the essential snacks, an easily transportable grill, a nice pair of Zubaz pants, the jersey of your favorite underrated special teams player, and a comfortable seat to sit in while you eat your weight in Buffalo wings and guzzle down pre-game tall boys. Don’t worry, though. You don’t have to make a beer-themed throne out of old thirty-rack boxes and hope that it stands up to random early-season sprinkles or spilled beers. That’s because, just in time for the long-anticipated matchup between Aaron Rodgers and Josh Allen, the folks at Coors Light are selling a majestic tailgate chair called the Chill Throne.

All about the Coors Light Chill Throne

And this is definitely better than the simple gravity chair you’ve been boasting about bringing to this year’s tailgate. This chair is more loaded with features than a seven-layer bean dip. First things first, your beer (or soda) will always stay cold thanks to an auto-chilling cup holder that is guaranteed to keep your favorite drink at a chilly 36 degrees. Who needs a novelty koozie anyway? Additionally, the seat has a built-in cooler where you can keep all your brews and suds. Did we mention there’s a can tap as well?

It’s more than just a place for your bottom to go and a cooler for your brews. Thanks to the in-seat charging station, you’ll be sure to get as many grainy pictures of the field as possible because your phone won’t die pre-game. It also comes with a speaker system to guarantee you’ll be blasting yacht rock (or whatever music you use to amp you up into a pre-game frenzy).

Other features include a 360-degree turning radius, so you never need to get out of your seat to enjoy the tailgate action. Simply spin around to see where all the voices excitedly talking about your majestic chair are coming from.

And if you’re worried about those colder months, the seat is heated.

But wait, there’s more! Would you believe that it’s also a back-massager and has a footrest made of stadium turf? Well, those are two more things this chair has to offer. Finally, there’s a flag holder so you can hoist your team’s flag to show your undying allegiance to rival fans.

After all this, you might wonder about the Coors Light Chill Throne’s portability. You might assume that it weighs 500 pounds. Apparently, it’s reasonably light and easy to move around — according to Coors Light, it’s even foldable. That is, as long as you have room in your car for it.

Now that we’ve hooked you, you’re probably wondering about the price, right? If you want one, it’ll cost you $750. These rowdy recliners are available beginning September 2nd. The problem is that Coors Light is only selling eight of these beauties (and giving one away in a contest). Once they’re sold, that’s it. If this chair is in your fall tailgating plans, you better hope you’re lucky enough to get one.

Why you can (and should) add bourbon right to your banana bread batter without cooking it first
Bourbon alcohol cooks out as banana bread bakes - genius!
Banana bread

Cooking with booze is one of the best ways to achieve a robust and delicious complexity of flavor. For any number of dishes, we braise, poach, deglaze, and sauce with everything in the liquor cabinet, from wine to tequila to rum, and our food is better for it. And while you may have incorporated beer into your cupcakes or poached pear in a simmering pool of red wine, you may not yet fully appreciate the flavor spirits can bring to baked goods. Banana bread is one of the most delicious, comforting, feels-like-home treats there is, and it's hard to imagine it getting any better than it already is in its mildly sweet, toasty perfection. Enter bourbon.

It turns out that splashing a bit of bourbon into banana bread batter can take Grandma's recipe and elevate it to something one might find in an upscale restaurant. Here's why.

The 11 best rums for mixing to turn any night into island night
Cuba Libre or a daiquiri — whatever your fav rum drink is, mix it with one of these top rums
Rum for mixed drinks like mojitos

As flexible as any spirit out there, rum is royalty among fellow spirits. Given its tropical heritage, one can argue it offers some much-needed breezy escapism as well. You may not actually be on a palm tree-studded island, but after a sip of good rum or an excellent rum cocktail, you can easily imagine such a thing.

Whether it's a tiki drink, Cuba Libre, daiquiri, Dark and Stormy, or something else entirely, the best rum for mixing comes shining through. The sugarcane- or molasses-based spirit, often barrel-aged for added depth and nuance, is the hero of many, many drinks. Not only that, but should you feel inclined to keep the beach bum spirit alive, you can even plug it into some of your other favorite cocktails. Next time you're making an Old Fashioned or Negroni, call up rum in place of bourbon for the former and in lieu of gin in the latter. You can thank us later.

The differences between bourbon and brandy, explained
Brandy and bourbon are quite different

Like most aged spirits, brandy and bourbon look the same. If you’re a drinking novice and someone puts a glass of bourbon and a glass of brandy side by side, you might even have a little difficulty figuring out which is which. Both are golden to caramel in color depending on the age. The two spirits also carry some of the same aromas and flavors, like oak, caramel, and fruity flavors. That being said, the two spirits couldn’t be more different.

A very different base
Bourbon is often referred to as America’s “native spirit”. If you didn’t already know it, this is a reference to its history and cultural significance in the US. It’s also a reference to the rules of bourbon whiskey. That being that it must be made in the US (not just Kentucky). While there are various other rules and regulations, the other most important rule is that, to be called a bourbon, the whiskey must have a mash bill of at least 51% corn. So, it’s a corn-based spirit.
