Upgrade your Apres Ski with this Shot Ski from Looptworks

Found everywhere from college basement parties to high-end ski lodges and bars, the shot ski is the ultimate weapon against friends who refuse to drink shots.

If you have a friend like that, or are a friend like that (like me), then the shot ski is the easiest way to get your light-weight buddies to down a vodka or two. It’s impossible to refuse a shot while shot skiing–if you do, you’ll end up with booze on your face. And liquor coated shame is never a good look

And while Jimmy Fallon may claim he and his wife invented the shot ski, the truth is, no one knows who is responsible for this delightful drinking apparatus. Which is a shame, because skiers and college kids everywhere owe him or her a debt of gratitude for creating a bar accessory with the sole purpose of making sure multiple people are forced into shooting high-proof liquor.

Looptwork’s shot ski ($150) is made, like all Looptworks products, from upcycled materials (in this case, an actual old ski) and features four rubber gaskets that hold as many stainless steel shot glasses. The ski can be folded in half for easy storage and comes with an upcycled carrying bag for quick and hassle free transportation–which is key when all you want is to get in a little drinking after a hard day on the slopes.

According to Looptworks, “The secure-shot-gasket-construction allows for easy placement and removal of stainless steel shot glasses, making it easy to wash and clean while avoiding broken glass. Upcycled in Portland, Oregon in partnership with Deviation Ski & Snowboard Works in limited edition batches, gatherings will never be the same again.”

And, you’re helping to keep materials that otherwise would have been discarded out of the landfill. Give yourself a pat on the back after you knock one back.

Get yours before the winter weather gives way spring, because it just seems totally inappropriate to do a shot ski when the outdoor temperature rises above freezing.

These are the 5 hottest peppers in the world
It's probably not what you think it is
Row of peppers

We love peppers for their spicy, sweet intrigue and character, for their ability to transform a dish with their signature heat and flavor. Poblanos, jalapenos, serranos, and even firey habaneros give us that bit of kick we need every now and then in our food, that fun little zing that makes our brow sweat a bit when we bite into a truly delicious chicken wing. But there's a certain personality that loves to push the limit here. A certain streak of what some might call insanity. This person loves to push that line as far as possible, taking peppers from an ingredient that provides a fun little kick to one that all but catches your insides on fire and sends you to the hospital in a screaming ambulance.

If you ask us, food is meant to be an enjoyable experience, not a painful one. But we're not here to judge. To each their own, we say. Live and let live and all that. So, if you're in the camp that loves to cross that line of insanity, then the peppers on this list are for you.

A new premium rum is being released, backed by Eric Winter -- the actor  starring on ABC's The Rookie. Palm Republic rum will come in both an aged and silver form, having been developed over the last two years to create a unique blend of flavors from across the Caribbean and Latin America.

"To me this is not just another celebrity spirit, this is a passion of mine for the past 20 years," said Winter. "I fell in love with rum when I went on my first trip to Puerto Rico with my now wife Roselyn Sanchez. It was then that I started to appreciate all of the different nuances premium rum had to offer. I mean this when I say it, the real star here is our unique blend of rum that is Palm Republic! As it should be. It's what today's consumer deserves in this flooded market of celebrity spirits."
