10 Everyday Carry Essentials: Happy Hour Hero
This collection of everyday essentials is all about kicking back, relaxing, and tossing back some spirits at home. Since bars are pretty much not an option nationwide still you can bring the home bar experience to yourself. I’ve thrown some apparel, accessories, and gear for you guys to choose from. You can shop the full collection or pick and choose your favorites by following any of the links below.
First up is the Islay Tumbler & Walnut Coaster Set which comes with two of each. These tumblers feature a modern aesthetic with the proper amount of weight thanks to the heavy-bottom design. The solid walnut wood coasters are a perfect pairing with these tumblers.
The Astorflex ‘Wakeflex’ Slip-Ons just hit Huckberry and they come in Tan, Brown, or Sabbia leather. This classic loafer is made using European leather with a 100% natural rubber sole that feels like you’re walking on a cloud.
This Finisterre Rugby Polo is a personal favorite of mine thanks to the versatility. It can be worn with shorts, jeans, chinos, and in all four seasons. This one’s sewn in Turkey and features a relaxed collar with a three-button placket. The reinforced cuffs retain their shape over time so this shirt looks great for years to come.
You can pair that shirt with the Howler Brothers Horizon Hybrid Shorts 2.0 which are a perfect pair of Spring/Summer shorts. These can be worn in the water, on land, at the tiki bar, or anywhere else you’re rocking shorts. They’re designed to look like normal shorts but with the performance of swim shorts.
When it’s time to crack a drink you can pour some WhistlePig PiggyBack Rye Aged 6 Years. Whistle Pig in Vermont makes some of the finest Rye Whiskey on the planet and at $49.99 this is one of their most approachable expressions. While it says ‘aged 6 years’ that is referring to the bare minimum of the blend which consists of whiskeys aged between 6 to 8 years with an average age of 7.25 years. On the nose, you’ll find vanilla bean, white pepper, and clove. The smooth finish of caramel will make you into a believer.
This 2-pack of Jack Rudy Aromatic Bitters is a must-have for your home bar. Artisanal bitters are one of best and easiest ways to elevate your home cocktail experience. You can use it to make Manhattans or an Old Fashioned and this set of 2 is currently on sale.
Here we’ve got the Timex ‘Beekman’ Watch w/ Cream Dial. The INDIGLO® lume on this watch face ensures you can still read it in lowlight conditions. This Timex x Todd Snyder collaboration was based on a 60’s Formula One style which I love.
This 2 Pack of Cigars (Classic) comes with a mild but flavorful set of stogies along with matches and a cigar cutter. I’ve ordered this and loved it. Chilling on the porch right now and burning one down is a welcome distraction.
We round it out today with the Leatherman Skeletool KB Pocket Knife which is made in Portland, Oregon. This is one of the best $25 pocket knives you’ll ever find. The 420HC stainless steel blade holds a great edge. The skeleton frame cuts the weight down of this knife to just 1.3oz so it is super light.
Last up is an item which recently came into my life, the Sonos One (Gen 2) Voice-Controlled Smart Speaker. We used to have Sonos speakers in the BroBible offices so I was pretty familiar with the brand but not this particular compact speaker. I’m here to tell you this puts out better sound than any speaker I’ve come across on the market and I’ve tested 20 to 30 of them over the past handful of years. The Sonos One compact design is useful for putting it on pretty much any surface in your house and it syncs up brilliantly with the Sonos app and your other speakers. It is humidity resistant (for the bathroom) and has Google Assistant + Amazon’s Alexa built-in. If you are currently working from home like I am then this is about to be a total game-changer for you.
