It’s National Tequila Day so I figured I’d throw in some tequila recommendations today along with the usual Bourbon recommendations.
Tequila Don Julio ‘Limonada’ Cocktail
You know I had to throw in a delicious Tequila-based cocktail for National Tequila Day. This one was created by mixologist Ben Scorah for Don Julio and it’s perfect for drinking outside by the pool or chilling inside away from the world. The ingredients include:
1 1/2oz. Tequila Don Julio Blanco
3 oz. Cold water
3/4 oz. Fresh Lemon Juice (or 1 whole lemon)
8- 10 fresh mint leaves
1- 2 Tsp. Sugar
10-15 Ice cubes
Mix it up this weekend and thank me on Monday!
Drinking, Grilling, And Chilling
Up first is the Booker’s Bourbon ‘Boston Batch’. Four of the best Bourbon releases of the year are Booker’s Bourbon Batch Releases and the Boston Batch is the second release of 2020. This exquisite batch is made up of three different production dates stored in four different rack houses. 11% from 3rd-floor Warehouse 5 (7-stories), 33% from 5th-floor Warehouse G (9 stories), 27% from 6th-floor Warehouse H (9 stories), and 29% from 5th-floor Warehouse Z (7 stories).
7th generation Beam Family Master Distiller Fred Noe chose this history-making batch with his son, 8th Generation Beam Distiller Freddie Noe. Boston Batch has a rich light brown color and warm aroma of vanilla, toasted nuts, and rich baking spices. It checks in at a formidable 126.5 proof and is aged 6 years, 3 month, and 10 days. If you see this bottle on the shelf or online you’ll want to grab it fast because this one will be hard to find.

Tempo ‘Hungover AF’ Natural Hangover Remedy
Here we have one of the most exciting products to hit the market this Summer, something I’m extremely blown away by. The Tempo ‘Hungover AF’ Natural Hangover Remedy is the #1 hangover cure product available, hands down.
You just pop three capsules before bed and the Tempo ‘Hungover AF’ Natural Hangover Remedy goes to work with a blend of herbs, vitamins, electrolytes, and minerals to have you feeling like new when you wake up. If you’ve suffered any extreme hangovers at any point in your life then this one’s for you. Trust it!
Clase Azul Reposado
The Clase Azul Reposado sells for ~$75/bottle and I love the traditional Mexican style of the packaging with the blue-tiled bottle. This Reposado is made from Tequilana Weber Blue Agave that’s cooked for a minimum of 72 hours in traditional stone ovens before it’s aged for 8 months in hand-picked barrels. You can sip this neat or over ice and be in heaven.
MEATER+ Wireless Meat Thermometer
It’s officially grilling season, guys. You’re probably spending lots of time standing over the grill, just trying to cook meats and veggies to perfection. Unfortunately, we’re not all master chefs like those people we watch on TV. We require some help to whip up the most tender pieces of medium rare steak known to man.
MEATER+ — which is one of a few wireless, leave-in meat thermometers available from the brand — helps you keep track of what you’re cooking in real time, meaning you can precisely monitor the heat so not to overcook your food. Talk about a little added assistance, huh? And because MEATER+ costs just $99, you won’t have to break the bank to get a bit of grilling help.
Espolon Reposado Tequila
I know the artwork on the bottle of this 100% Blue Weber Agave Tequila looks familiar because this is seen on the shelves of craft cocktail bars across America. This tequila is aged for 3-5 months in New American Oak Barrels giving it a crisp but well-rounded and complex flavor.
Roku’s Most Popular Products
With Summer in full swing it might be time to refresh our home electronics. And in particular, Audio and TV products from Roku are the perfect gifts to yourself. Giving access to endless entertainment, offering premium audio, and doing everything with just a single remote, Roku is a must-have. Built to last and super easy to set up, you can start streaming your favorite shows right away. With over 500,000 movies and TV episodes right at your fingertips, Roku has all you’ll need while you stay home during these times. Plus, the Roku Channel has 100,000+ titles, including FREE movies and TV episodes, along with premium entertainment.
So upgrade your man cave, with Roku. Some of Roku’s most popular products include Roku TV, Roku Smart Soundbar, Roku Wireless Speakers, or the Roku Streaming Stick. All of which can take your entertainment viewing experience to the next level!
Ilegal Mezcal’s Joven Mezcal
I had to throw a Mezcal in here, didn’t I? Purists would say that it’s blasphemy to include a Mezcal on the official day of Tequila celebration but Mezcal’s still gaining its foothold in the serious spirits world. There’s no better place to start than a bottle of the Joven Mezcal from Ilegal, they also bottle a Reposado and Añejo.
The Wellen Sun Hoodie
It’s hard to imagine comfortably wearing a hoodie in the dog days of Summer but that’s what makes this particular layer so great. The Sun Hoodie from Wellen is super lightweight and feels just like your favorite t-shirt but it protects you from the elements and harmful sun rays providing a UPF 25 sun protection rating.
If wearing a hoodie in the Summer heat sounds insane to you, you’re not alone. But that’s precisely what makes this Sun Hoodie so perfect, it’s built specifically to provide you with the comfort and protection of a hoodie in the heat. It comes in two colors, Navy and Beach Glass, and has a classic side gusset with a three-panel hood.
Chill And Useful Daily Essentials
I pretty much live in short sleeves year-round and that’s why I wanted to turn you gentlemen onto Tropical Bros. The Sailfish Hawaiian Shirt from Tropical Bros is made from a custom ‘super stretch’ Hawaiian fabric. This magnificent party shirt has a moisture-wicking outer shell, wood buttons, a classic front pocket, and it’s machine washable. Best part? This breathable short-sleeve buttondown is perfect for cruising around on the boat from tiki hut to beach bar.

Weatherproof Packable Backpack
Matador is well known for making some of the world’s best packable items and this backpack is proof of that. I have an earlier version of this backpack that I absolutely love and have used countless times throughout the years but the Matador On-Grid Packable Backpack is such an improvement on mine that I had to share it with you gentlemen and it’s only $60 which is a total steal for this backpack.
Essentially, this can be used as your everyday backpack if you want. The Matador On-Grid Packable Backpack has all the storage, strength, and comfort you want/need in a backpack but it’s a packable item that can be easily folded up into a tiny pouch no larger than a water bottle. This makes it perfect for travel and short trips where you might want to bring extra storage or want something that’s easier to bring along.
Adidas Terrex Bounce Hiker GTX All-Terrain Hiking Shoe
Just because life has drastically changed in 2020 it doesn’t mean we can’t still get out there and crush the hiking trails harder than ever. In fact, hiking and camping are amongst the safest possible forms of recreation right now so you should be actively pushing yourself to get out there on the weekends. This pair of Adidas Terrex Bounce Hiker GTX all-terrain hiking shoes is about to become your new favorite trail shoes.
They provide you with the support of a hiking boot but the comfort and weight of a hiking shoe. These shoes combine a waterproof membrane to keep your feet dry and lock out the elements with the Adidas Terrex Bounce sole that gives you maximum shock absorption and energy transfer. What this means in practice is you can hike hard all day and your feet won’t hate you because this shoe is actually working with you on every step.
Slub Curved Hem Tee from Forty Five
One of the best names in menswear, Forty Five, just launched a new subtle curved hem tee that does wonders for your body. The Slub Curved Hem Tee creates a taller, slimmer look which anyone out there like myself who have been battling slight weight gain in 2020 can appreciate. And in addition to making you look taller/slimmer, this shirt is insanely comfortable.
This new Slub Curved Hem Tee from Forty Five comes in seven colors for you to choose from: White, Navy, Graphite, Fern, Dusty Field Grey, Deep Sea, and Black. This tee is also made right here in the USA using a luxe textured slub jersey fabric.
Braun All-In-One Trimmer
The Braun All-In-One Trimmer is a truly spectacular innovation in men’s grooming. It’s a 9-in-1 trimmer that includes a beard trimmer, hair trimmer, ear and nose trimmer, body hair trimmer, detailer, and more. There’s no sense in having multiple grooming gadgets in your bathroom when you can roll them all up into this incredible one device.
This is a perfect gift for dad or present to yourself. Generally speaking, I know a lot of guys out there have let it go a bit over the past few months and this is a perfect way to get that body hair managed and looking fresh again. You can pick it up on Amazon by following that ‘shop now’ button below.
