One of the reasons that I am a fan of Crown Royal is because of the work they do to help support the troops. Last weekend a star-studded list of former and current professional football players attended the Ditka & Jaws Cigars with the Stars party. As the premier spirit of the event, Crown Royal hosted a bag stuffing where attendees were able to pack CAMO bags for troops overseas as well as write personalized notes showing their appreciation. From former NFL linebacker Ray Lewis to current head coach Ron Rivera, athletes had the chance to give back to our service men and women.

Some of the drinks at the party are ones that you can make at home and enjoy responsibly.
