10 Everyday Carry Essentials: Happy Hour Hero

boozy everyday carry items

I wanted to mix things up a little bit today and throw together some must-have items for those nights when you want to toss a few back. We’ve got all the boozy essentials including whiskey, the glassware, some stogies, and all of the apparel and accessories to go along with it. You can shop the full collection or pick and choose your favorites below!

First up today is the Courage & Conviction American Single Malt Whisky which set out to rival the finest single malts in the world and put truly great American single malt on the map. It is aged in THREE core barrel types. The first is American oak bourbon casks which adds notes of butterscotch, caramel, and vanilla. I could stop there because those are three of my favorite flavors in whisky but it gets better. The second barrel types are sherry casks which include Fino, Oloroso and Pedro Ximenez to give this whisky brown sugar, spice, plum, and tart cherry.

The third barrel type are Cuvée casks sourced from European red wine producers. These casks are broken down, shaved, re-toasted and re-charred and this energizes the wood sugars to bring forth barrel spice, toasted pecan, and delectable red fruit. You can search Drizly for Virginia Distillery Co. Courage & Conviction to see if it’s available to ship online to your location. It’s made with 100% malted barley, aged for a minimum of three years in these casks, and the toasty summers and chilly winters of Virginia give this whisky a distinct flavor that takes years longer to achieve in the Scottish climate. It received a score of 91-points from Whiskey Advocate.

The OluKai Mio Li shoes have a perfect design for a multi-functional shoe. The drop-in heel allows you to wear these as a slip-on if you want but they’re a sneaker at heart and one you can workout in or wear on the boat. These have a dual-density PU footbed with gel insert and soft microfiber footbed which provide all-day comfort and the treaded rubber outsole offers excellent traction.

The Wills Knit Polo comes in four colors but the Smart Denim colorway here is made from a blend of cashmere that provides luxurious comfort. The cashmere wool is airspun into yarn in Italy for the best quality control and it has natural odor-blocking qualities as well as being highly breathable.

You can pair that polo with the Marine Layer Westlake Shorts which are made from a soft and comfortable mini-corduroy fabric constructed out of stretchy cotton. The 6.5″ inseam hits right above the knees, the perfect length.

Here we’ve got the authentic military P3 Shadow Aviators by Randolph Engineering which are made right here in the USA. These stylish aviators come with 4 different frame options, here we see the Matte Black, and they’re made with Randolph Engineering’s SkyTec™ Mineral Glass with Vector™ Anti-Reflective & Blue Wave™ lens technology. Each pair takes over 200 steps to make by hand and it comes with a hard leather case and a microfiber cleaning cloth.

Up next, we check out a unique everyday carry pocket knife from Deejo Knives which features a dope custom blade tattoo. These are some of the most customizable knives on the planet, they are super light, and ideal for everyday carry. They allow you to pick a unique ‘tattoo’ to make the knife your own as well as choosing the blade and handle features.

I’ve featured Whiskey Peaks rocks glasses on here throughout the years but the all-new Whiskey Peaks Mountain Decanter is stunning so I had to bring it to you today. It’s the perfect way to display your whiskey at home while you’re pouring drinks at home. It is made from 100% lead-free handblown glass and due to the nature of glass blowing this means each piece is slightly unique.

If you want to add some unique flavor to your cocktails at home then this Strongwater Orange Cocktail Bitters is the quickest and easiest way to do so. This is a fruit-forward, floral, and soft-spiced bitters that’s made with hand-peeled orange zest, spices, and black walnut. Delicious is an understatment and it’s made in Colorado (in case you were wondering).

We round it out today with the Meater+ Wireless Meat Thermometer which is a grilling tool I’ve used since the day it was released, and one I’ve featured here on BroBible in the past because I stand by how incredible the Meater+ is. Seriously, I rarely run my smoker without using the Meater+ because it helps me achieve a perfect temperature every time. the built-in Bluetooth repeater in the charger extends the range of the Meater+ to a whopping 165-feet. There are no wires whatsoever and you an monitor everything on the Meater smartphone app to make sure you never overcook your meat. If you treat yourself to something new today is should be the Meater+ Wireless Meat Thermometer.

Last up is the MultiTool – 4-in-1 Keychain Tool from Keysmart which includes a box cutter, phillips head screwdriver, flat head screwdriver, pry bar. This is a perfect everyday carry tool that will only run you $10 and it fits neatly on your keychain.
