Talk about effective advertising: These spirits ads knew how to make people buy, buy, buy

Admit it: There’s nothing quite like flipping through your favorite magazine and coming across a funny or downright cool alcohol ad.

What makes you want to buy a specific bottle of liquor? Is it more important that it’s made in the U.S.? Or that it’s of unparalleled quality?

We like to think we have very specific booze-buying standards. But we’re also suckers for a good advertisement.

Gordon's Gin Goes Big

Gordon’s Gin is a classic in its own right. We’ve seen dozens of vintage advertisements featuring various of the brand’s expressions (one of our editors even has an ad from a 1917 issue of LIFEmagazine). However, we haven’t ever seen a Gin & Tonic quite that substantial. We’re certainly on the threshold of purchasing our own bottle of Gordon’s.

Smirnoff Pink Lemonade Arrives Just in Time for a Normal Summer

Two shots of vaccine and one shot of pink lemonade vodka, please.

With the weather warming up and a few more million Americans getting jabbed with a dose of Covid-19 vaccine every day, there&aposs reason to believe that summer 2021 is going to be a fair amount more normal (a good thing, in this case) than the previous one. 

That calls for special summery booze, and Smirnoff&aposs release of a new, limited-edition pink lemonade variety of their vodka seems like it could fit the mood absolutely perfectly. 

From the palm tree and the radiant shade of sunset on the packaging, there&aposs no mistaking this for anything other than a good time in a bottle meant for capping off epic beach days. According to a description, it&aposs "infused with bright notes of pink berries and the classic flavor and certified colors of lemonade," and it&aposs also triple distilled to balance out lemonade&aposs namesake flavor with other hints of strawberry and raspberry. Starting with that kind of profile, you definitely don&apost need to be a certified mixologist in order to turn this 30 percent ABV beverage that into something special. 

In addition to the standard 750 milliliter 5th and a 1.5-liter bottle, Smirnoff&aposs also selling its Pink Lemonade as a 10-pack of smaller 50-milliliter bottles, which feels perfect for those who feel comfortable enough to get together and have a good time with friends, but don&apost quite want to push their luck by serving or swigging from the same bottle. 

So if you&aposre looking to lay back and sip on something boozy that screams summer. You could do far worse than reaching for Smirnoff Pink Lemonade. After a dark year stuck inside, nothing speaks to the optimism of the "new normal" like reaching for the brightest drink you can find. 

30 Thoughtful Maid of Honor Gifts That'll Show Your Appreciation

Wedding season can be quite the whirlwind. There are engagement parties, bachelorette weekends, bridal showers, rehearsal dinners, not to mention all the dress fittings, tastings, and seemingly endless decisions you need to make. (Who would have thought choosing paper stock for programs would be so fraught with indecision?) You may still have a million things to do&mdashlike creating a playlist of country wedding songs&mdashbut you also want to take some time to show appropriate thanks to your maid of honor&mdashthe person who has been right by your side through all of the above&mdashwith a unique and thoughtful maid of honor gift. (If you're early in the planning stages, don't miss these creative maid of honor proposal ideas!) Because she is your best friend&mdashpossibly even a sibling!&mdashyou already know whether she'll appreciate something sentimental, stylish, or downright silly, and these gifts thankfully run the gamut. (Some even playfully hint at your partner-in-crime's past&mdasha topic that, for the record, is absolutely off-limits in her MOH toast!) There are also quite a few personalized and monogrammed options, which kindly conveys that your gesture was hardly an afterthought. Consider coupling your MOH gift with a note that includes one of these quotes about friendship, or quotes about sisterhood, and you may just leave her feeling positively verklempt. (Perhaps she can use a new monogrammed linen handkerchief to blot those watery eyes.)

Unlike a bridesmaid's dress, she'll get endless reuse from a monogrammed clutch ($12 for personalization), and it makes for an extra fitting find for a beach wedding. (Besides, someone's gotta hold the bride's lipstick.)

This incredibly thoughtful custom illustration of you and your have-your-back bestie may just make her tear up, so wrap it in Kleenex, okay? (Choose from various skin tones and hair colors.)

The packaging of this dainty 14K chain pretty much says it all, and this Etsy vendor also offers pretty pieces for pretty much anyone affiliated with your wedding day.

In a perfect world, each of your bridesmaids would get one of these personalized market totes before boarding the yacht at your bachelorette party in the South of France. But in this world, a girl's gotta pay the florist. C'est la vie! Fortunately, more than a dozen yarn colors mean you can coordinate your MOH's cute carryall to your Big Day's color scheme.

Every friendship has a soundtrack, right? Treat your BFF to a mixtape of your best musical memories&mdashyou know, those choreographed dance routines, the karaoke late-nights, that spring break in Mexico&mdashthat she can enjoy the modern way thanks to the USB drive.

The Top 10 Very Best Cookbooks Every Home Cook Needs

In this day of the Internet, does it still make sense to own cookbooks? That&aposs a question I put to a group of my friends, all of whom are serious home cooks. The answer to my inquiry was a resounding “Yes!” from everyone. My next question, which should be obvious, was “What are the best cookbooks worth owning?” Not surprisingly, the responses to that question varied. The answers ran the gamut from old classics, like Julia Child, to titles from newer food stars like Mark Bittman.

This list is a roundup of the responses I received from seasoned home cooks, plus my own must-haves. Do you agree? Are these the best cookbooks? Which titles would you add as the most spatter-worth cookbooks? Make sure to leave a comment with your suggestions.

These essential businesses still bake cookies

Since the call went out for all but essential businesses to close during the coronavirus crisis, exactly what constitutes an “essential business” has been a point of public debate. “Are restaurants?” some wonder “Are bakeries?”



8680 Miralani Drive, San Diego


Uncle Biffs California Killer Cookies

650 University Ave, San Diego


Uncle Biffs Killer Cookies

150 S Solana Hills Dr, Solana Beach


The Cravory

3960 West Point Loma Boulevard, San Diego

Yes to both. At least that’s the government’s position, despite the fear and misgivings of some in our citizenry.

I’m not here to settle that discussion from any public policy standpoint. But I am here to say that cookies have been essential to my own well-being, while at home in isolation.

Okay, maybe not my physical well-being. Sugar and chocolate chunks aren’t the nutrients we need in order to survive a pandemic. But psychologically, turning off the news and eating a cookie has done wonders for my spirits.

It started with perhaps the best cookie I’ve ever tried in my life: a strawberry chocolate chip cookie from cookie and brownie specialist Caked.

The small bakery graduated from cottage kitchen, farmers market business last year to its own kitchen and counter shop in Miramar. Caked technically calls it a “chocolate chipped strawberry cookie,” but the point here is that the chewy pink cookie tastes like fresh strawberry shortcake with nuggets of chocolate throughout.

It’s embarrassing to admit, but after the first couple bites, I whispered to the cookie, “Where have you been all my life?”

Caked covers a lot of ground with its daily cookie selections, ranging from $3 apiece to $30 per dozen. Along with chocolate chip and nutty cookie variants, it features gluten-free options and cookies incorporating toffee, taro, ube, and matcha green tea. It’s one of at least three cookie specialists around town that remains open and serving cookies via take-out, by post, and (if you live close enough) restaurant delivery services.

Another is Uncle Biff’s Killer Cookies, which has been baking cookies in Hillcrest for 32 years! It happens to have opened a second location in Solana Beach, just about the same time non-essential businesses were ordered to close. This is a cookie company that does stuff like melt a piece of sea-salted caramel over the top of any cookie in a repertoire that includes things like an Oreo stuffed peanut butter chocolate chip cookie.

Biff’s isn’t signed up with any delivery services, but does offer its own localized delivery with purchase of a dozen cookies for $26.50, which includes three bonus cookies during the pandemic. It encourages pick up orders, though, because if you pre-order you may pick up your cookies hot, out of the oven. That also allows you to order a $13.50 half dozen, which includes a bonus seventh cookie.

The third cookie business I found is one of the county’s most popular: The Cravory Cookie Company, of Point Loma. It’s known for treats such as its almond joyous cookie (toasted coconut dough, sweetened coconut, toasted almonds, dark chocolate, and sea salt), and the cookie monster, a bright blue vanilla cookie containing crushed Oreos, marshmallow, caramel, and chips of peanut butter, chocolate, and white chocolate.

Depending how you order, a dozen cookies cost $20-28, whether you order 12 of one flavor, or put together a mix based on Cravory’s signature cookies, or it’s rotating monthly flavors. I found a $20 deal on UberEats, and before long had a nifty, and essential box of cookies at my doorstep.

25 High-Protein Chicken Recipes for Weight Loss

These healthy chicken recipes are designed to help you slim down.

Chicken is so versatile and inexpensive that it probably shows up on your dinner plate at least once a week. And if you're trying to slim down, that's even more reason to load up on poultry. One 3-ounce serving of boneless, skinless chicken breast contains just 102 calories, while also loading you up with a whopping 19 grams of protein. That second part is important: protein-rich dishes help you stay fuller for longer in between meals, making this nutrient an important weapon in your weight-loss arsenal.

All this is why Prevention created more than 115 new recipes for our new weight loss guide, Slim Chicken! This 28-day plan integrates 20 to 30 grams of high-quality protein into every meal, the proven formula for revving metabolism, building muscle, and slimming down. The following 25 recipes prove chicken never has to be boring.

Surf & Soul Spot touches down in La Mesa

The first time I ate at Surf & Soul Spot, it was operating as a pop-up restaurant, serving fried fish and soul food select days per week at a church banquet hall in the southeast neighborhood of Mountain View. I knew it was only a matter of time before Surf & Soul would find its own place, and at the end of 2019 it happened.


Surf and Soul Spot

7229 El Cajon Boulevard, San Diego

I made plans a couple months ago to visit its new location, a small stand-alone kitchen on the western outskirts of La Mesa (7229 El Cajon Boulevard). The folk working the ad hoc restaurant had been a joyful and joking bunch, but being in a sublet church hall had meant Surf & Soul ownership couldn’t do anything to personalize the space. As much as anything, I was curious to see how it might decorate its own dedicated dining room.

Of course, events transpired to derail my visit, and when I finally made it back to pick up some take out, I found the new place fully locked down in deference to coronavirus: everyone in masks and gloves, with a table blocking the front door. My bagged order, paid over the phone via credit card, was passed across that table by the young woman working, and even if I couldn’t see the smile behind her mask, I swear I could hear it.

I could only peek through the windows to see into the pristine little counter shop, and its large painted waves breaking across the walls. Also on the wall is a framed Eastern Michigan jersey of Sergio Bailey II. Bailey was a star wide receiver at Olympian High School in Chula Vista before racking up 16 touchdowns and 114 receptions in two years for Michigan. The past two years he’s pursued football at the pro level in both the NFL and XFL.

He’s the entrepreneur behind Surf & Soul Spot, which acts as two different restaurants depending which day of the week you visit. On Friday and Saturday, think of it as the Soul Spot, serving up big portions of fried pork chops and chicken wings, along with sides of mac & cheese, rice & gravy, and smoked turkey collard greens.

Those sides aren’t available Monday through Wednesday, when it goes full Surf Spot, dishing up $15 baskets of fried catfish or shrimp (or those fried chicken wings). It’s the rare restaurant that makes me wish I could eat shrimp: first, to try its blackened shrimp and crab roll ($16) and even more so to enjoy its popcorn shrimp and grits with smoked turkey gravy ($14).

That sounds so good, I might have to ignore my shellfish allergy to return one of these days with an epi-pen and just live dangerously. This time around I settled for a safer bet: the fish hook sandwich ($12), featuring some of that fried catfish with slaw and garlic remoulade, plus a side of fries.

I would have enjoyed the catfish better with some of those soul food side dishes, so I’ll probably stick mostly to soul days in the future. But for those who love eating shrimp, I don’t know what to think. I guess you’ll have to eat at Surf & Soul Spot twice a week.

The Best Food and Booze Gifts for Men

Traveling can be difficult for a dude who loves fresh-roasted, fresh-ground coffee.

The instant stuff most people take camping? It tastes like watery topsoil. And hotel brews are just as bad.

To make life easier for the flavor-loving nomad, the roasters at Blue Bottle teamed up with the bag makers at Timbuk2 to create a fancy-yet-functional, go-anywhere coffee kit that packs in a hand grinder, pour-over cone, filters, whole beans, and mugs.

The only thing missing is the handlebar mustache. You&rsquore on your own for that one.

Guys who love full-flavored beer know that bottles and cans are lousy delivery systems. If you want the hop aroma to hit your nose, you need a cup with a wide mouth.

In your kitchen, that means a glass.

But for all other times, Avex&rsquos 20-ounce, stainless steel mug does the trick: It&rsquos insulated, indestructible, and&mdashfor barbecues and camping trips&ndashindispensible.

Oh, and you can leave your bottle opener at home this mug has one nested inconspicuously in the bottom.

More Great Gift Ideas:

Yes, Lucky Peach is that hipstered-out foodie magazine. Yes, this cookbook includes more name-dropping than an Oscar speech.

But it&rsquos also loaded with quick-and-dirty recipes for DIY dumplings, kimchi pancakes, and braised chicken wings.

Buy this book for that person who can&rsquot stop raving about the new Szechuan joint they discover or for that looney who actually loves the flavor of fish sauce.

Even a cooler with wheels is damn near impossible to haul over rutty trails and sandy beaches. And that&rsquos why a backpack cooler is essential it allows you to schlep cold beer (and, uh, food, if you want) into some of the world&rsquos greatest drinking spots.

The IceMule&rsquos inflatable rubber walls lock in cold and make for a comfortable carry, and the XL size (30 liters) holds up to a case of 12-ounce cans with ice.

Forty percent of the whisky that goes into Highland Park&rsquos newest release (introduced in 2014) comes from first-fill sherry casks. That&rsquos twice as much as you&rsquoll find in traditional Highland Park 12, which translates to a much spicier, smokier expression that&rsquos perfect for a freezing winter night.

Plus, the slick black bottle is a stylish addition to any bar.

We like wines with a story, and Mt. Brave has one of the best. Consider: It&rsquos actually located on the side of a mountain&mdashNapa Valley&rsquos Mt. Veeder&mdashwhere winemaking ain&rsquot easy.

The terrain is rocky, the soil doesn&rsquot hold water, and yet winemaker Chris Carpenter overcomes these obstacles with a labor-intensive process to produce one of America&rsquos finest cabernets.

Raise a glass, and give a toast to winemaking&rsquos biggest badass.

Coffee. Beer. Soup. Lemonade. Vodka and lemonade. Whatever you might want to keep hot or cool, this sleek, gallon-sized, stainless-steel growler will get the job done without leaking.

You can throw it in your bag or backpack, or attach it to a bike carrier. It even locks in carbonation, so your beer will still have a head when you arrive at your destination.

This map doesn&rsquot quite have 50 open bottle cap slots, but it&rsquos a fun way to keep track of&mdashand show off&mdashyour favorite brews from every region of the country.

If you&rsquore into rye whisky, Whistlepig&rsquos one of the only names you need to know. In 2010, Wine Enthusiast gave the 10-year expression a 96 rating&mdashthe highest ever for a rye.

What makes it so distinctive? For one thing, it&rsquos 100 percent rye and 100 proof (most ryes clock in much lower on both counts).

The difference makes Whistlepig&rsquos version way spicier, more flavorful, and great for sipping or as a robust backbone to an Old Fashioned.

&ldquoYou sunk my battleship!&rdquo The simulated naval warfare game you loved as a child is back, but with shot glasses instead of pegs. Like beer pong, but more aggressively alcoholic.

Make your mornings a little more bearable with this TOMS and Chemex coffee brewer. It does more than just brew a mean cup of Joe&mdashfor every brewer sold, a person in need will receive clean water for 2 weeks.

Because who doesn&rsquot love tacos, right?

And who wouldn&rsquot love lobster tacos with sweet corn even more? Or how about cheeseburger tacos&mdashyeah, CHEESEBURGER TACOS? Or maybe pastrami tacos with mustard seed salsa?

Hurry up and order this book. Then wipe that drool off your chin.

Every wine review you&rsquove ever read talks about &ldquonotes of earth and leather&rdquo or &ldquohints of cassis.&rdquo If you&rsquove wondered how the reviewers&rsquo noses picked out all those different scents, this wine kit is your answer.

It takes time to teach your schnoz to recognize what&rsquos wafting out of your wine glass, but you&rsquoll sure enjoy your training.

Few distilleries in the world are as lauded as Japan&rsquos Suntory&mdashand their track record of producing flat-out, damn good whisky continues with 2015&rsquos Harmony.

The blend of malt and grain whiskies is smooth and light, with subtle hints of orange, apricot, and black pepper. When you&rsquore looking for a sweeter, mellower alternative to the usual winter spice and peat bombs, start here.

You like fine bourbon and Scotch. And like a true connoisseur, you enjoy them unadulterated by water or mixers.

These soapstone and marble &ldquorocks&rdquo gently cool your libation without watering it down.

It&rsquos the most utilitarian tool in your home kitchen, and the one you have is probably a beat-up POS your parents picked up when you bought your first place.

Time for an upgrade: This beautiful, perfectly balanced tool is handcrafted in Japan and a favorite among professional chefs.

Homebrewed beer is fine and all. But how many guys distill their own liquor?

From blindness-inducing moonshine to slow-sipping whisky, this beautiful still will give you something to do with your weekends once football season ends.

Maybe you&rsquore a fan of Dave Matthews, maybe you&rsquore not. But when it comes to his wines, Dreaming Tree, put the politics of your playlist aside and give this complex, affordable, and easy drinking pinot a chance.

Don&rsquot just take our word for it, either: The wine recently won gold and scored a 91 overall at the 2015 Critics Challenge International Wine Competition.

One of the highlights of 2015&rsquos releases, Pikesville&rsquos Straight Rye has already picked up two major accolades&mdashDouble Gold at the San Francisco World Spirits competition, and a 95 rating from the Ultimate Spirits Challenge.

The 6-year-old, 110-proof whisky clocks in at 51 percent rye, but contains plenty of bite&mdashand at just $40, it&rsquos a bargain. We enjoyed it neat, but you can also use it to make a killer Manhattan.

True chocolate aficionados aren&rsquot satisfied with supermarket sweets. Satisfy your cravings with six pure and intensely flavored chocolate blends inspired by traditional Mexican recipes.

The cinnamon, salted almond, vanilla bean, and fiery chilies will take your taste buds on an exotic adventure.

This 960-page cookbook weighs nearly as much as a human brain&mdashand has nearly as much knowledge stuffed into it.

Author J. Kenji Lopez-Alt Lopez, a prolific home cook and recipe writer at, drops his scientific cooking expertise to help you whip up better homemade pizza, bacon, omelets, cauliflower, grilled cheese, chili, and so much more.

Don&rsquot tote an expensive bottle of wine in a brown paper bag. This shearling and black pebbled leather wine tote helps the goods stay intact, with a little bit of flair.

Moet and Chandon has produced the world&rsquos most renowned champagne for centuries, but with the MCIII, the bubbly brand firmly enters the future. This prestige cuvee culls together wines aged in three very different &ldquouniverses&rdquo: metal, wood, and glass.

The result is a state-of-the-art blend that tastes as stunning as it looks.

A classy party requires a classy container for your cocktails, and this cool pineapple tumbler fits the bill. Bonus points if you fill it with a killer piña colada.

Buying beer isn&rsquot as exciting as actually drinking it, but we were tickled when we snagged one of these 60,000 limited-edition, handmade wooden crates from Budweiser.

Available only for the holidays, the boxes mirror the original crates that the Budweiser Clydesdales distributed post-Prohibition.

You&rsquoll get two pilsner glasses, 18 Bud bottles featuring authentic labels circa &rsquo33, and an awesome storage container after you quickly polish off the contents inside.

Frank Sinatra would have turned 100 this year, so to toast to the Chairman&rsquos Centennial, Jack Daniel&rsquos&mdashthe legendary crooner&rsquos go-to whisky&mdashcrafted this ultra-premium offering with a smoky, rich oak aroma.

The luxe gift box comes with a live set of unreleased Sinatra tracks, so you can sip and sing in supreme style.

Every guy needs a great bottle of whisky, so fetch one of the finest. While we love all of Johnnie&rsquos traditional labels, Blue is the most precious of the brand&rsquos reserves.

The rare, layered blend is powerful and smooth, combining sweetness and peppery spice for an outstanding experience. Bonus: Buy your bottle at and you can engrave up to three lines of text for free.

You almost feel bad shucking a bushel of oysters with such a gorgeous piece of craftsmanship, but for as striking as the Edisto is&mdashstainless steel blade, polished wood handle&mdashit&rsquos equally practical.

Most oyster knives are little more than cheap crowbars, but this handmade beauty instantly pries open and spreads apart stubborn shells with unparalleled ease.

When the mad men at Discommon sent us this burly bottle opener, they admitted it was &ldquonuts&mdashbut we&rsquore not prone to giving less than 100 percent.&rdquo Make that 200: This baby is painstakingly made from aerospace grade aluminum, and uses a steel coin with a chamfered edge to crack all caps.
