Watermelon, cucumber, and bourbon make for the perfect summer cocktail
Mix yourself a juicy, refreshing 52 Reasons cocktail to sip for the summer
52 reasons cocktail  1

Does anything say summer more than a great big slice of fresh, juicy watermelon? As a cool and refreshing snack, watermelon is a staple favorite for picnics and barbecues. But this fruit doesn't get used in cocktails all that often, which is a shame. While there are watermelon cocktail recipes out there, it's always a pleasure to see some more. And a new recipe from Eric LeGrand Bourbon called the 52 Reasons incorporates watermelon juice for a fruity, sippable summer delight.

The recipe calls for both watermelon juice (which is easy to make in a blender -- just blend chunks of watermelon with some water and a dash of sugar to taste) and cucumber mint simple syrup. The cucumber adds to the cool, juicy nature of the drink, and the mint adds some freshness. These balance with the spicy, sweet notes of the bourbon.

What you need to know before you bring wine to a restaurant
What is a corkage fee?
Person eating in restaurant with plate and white wine

A great meal is only as good as the wine being poured alongside it. Many restaurants tout impressive bottle and glass pour lists but sometimes you just want to bring your own special selection. Whether that wine is a favorite you've been cellaring for years or just a prized producer that's hard to find here, special bottles are often welcomed at restaurants, for a price.

Corkage fees tend to apply to higher-end wines, so while we have nothing against a good bargain wine, leave the Two Buck Chuck at home. The corkage fee alone could probably buy you a half case of that stuff. Instead, go with something great, as the whole point is to enhance the meal while still paying respect to the restaurant's wine program and use of its staff, glassware, service, and the like.

The incredible IPAs that belong in your shopping cart
Add these IPAs to your must-try list
beer

At last count, more than 9,000 breweries are currently operating in the US. That’s a crazy amount of beer being produced daily. And of those 9,000-plus breweries, a large percentage makes at least one (if not many) IPA.

Even if you were to drink a few dozen every day, you’d never find the time to try even a fraction of them. That means that if you’re a fan of hoppy, dank, and piney IPAs and hazy, juicy, and fruity IPAs, you need to pinpoint the ones that you absolutely need to try.
