Reebok Creates Predator Inspired DMX Sneaker

YES!!! You read that correctly! Celebrating the latest installment in the Predator film franchise, Reebok has partnered with 20th Century Fox and Extra Butter to produce a meticulously detailed cinematic collectible, dropping Friday, 9/14 on Reebok’s website.

Eerie iridescent soles conceal more than just Reebok’s patented DMX tech. Black out the lights to witness glow-in-the-dark graphics inspired by the film’s finale when water short-circuits the Predator’s operating system. A ghoulish ‘spine trophy’ souvenir hangs from the laces as a tribute to the original Predator film from 1987.

These shoes are legit and I am hoping I can cop a pair when they land in a few weeks.

Maker’s 46 Pomegranate Smash

2 parts Maker’s 46 Bourbon

1 part POM Wonderful® Pomegranate Juice

½ part honey

½ part fresh squeezed lemon juice

Garnish with pomegranate seeds. Add all ingredients to a shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously for 10 seconds. Pour over ice into a rocks glass.

Fancy Bourbon Punch

1 liter Maker’s Mark Bourbon

1 cup granulated sugar

Peels of 3 lemons and 1 orange

Juice of peeled fruit

Freshly grated nutmeg*

Combine sugar and citrus peels in the bottom of a punch bowl. Muddle together until sugar starts to clump together. Let sit for about 2 hours, (while not necessary, this does add a little complexity). Brew the tea for about 30 minutes, remove loose tea or tea bags and allow to cool. Add the juice of the peeled fruit, tea and bourbon. Stir. Top with champagne just before serving and stir gently. Top with freshly grated nutmeg and serve.

*If you can’t grate fresh nutmeg, don’t use the prepackaged powdered stuff. It will turn your punch into a paste. If fresh isn’t possible, garnish with citrus wheels or fresh fruit.

Deadpool 2 Is All That And More

Ryan Reynolds was made to play the role of Deadpool. Whoever leaked the first footage of Deadpool way back when (wink-wink) pulled off a genius move. Deadpool made us all laugh and feel funny in all parts of our body. It was a different kind of superhero movie.

I couldn’t wait to see the sequel and see all of the Easter Eggs in this film. The dialogue is fantastic and so is the action.

If you don’t believe me, just read the “synopsis” of the film! Deadpool 2 is a film you need to add to your collection.

Searching to regain his spice for life, as well as a flux capacitor, Wade must battle ninjas, the yakuza, and a pack of sexually aggressive canines, as he journeys around the world to discover the importance of family, friendship, and flavor – finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World’s Best Lover.

Smirnoff Celebrates The Fun Percenters

Smirnoff’s newest ad campaign called “Welcome to the Fun%” that stars Jonathan Van Ness, Nicole Byer and Laverne Cox alongside Ted Danson in hilarious short spots to tout the brand’s award-winning credentials, “Made in America” heritage, and encouragement of fun yet responsible drinking. The TV spots each depict different scenarios in which longtime Smirnoff partner Danson teams up with a fellow cast member to tout the brand’s award-winning credentials, “Made in America” heritage, and encouragement of fun yet responsible drinking, all ending with the tagline “Welcome to the Fun%.” The spots all share a humorous, playful attitude and give a nod to Smirnoff’s inclusive qualities.

So, what is the Fun%? The Fun% is anyone and everyone who wants to have accessible, unpretentious fun. It is the dreamers, doers and shakers who want it all, but do not want to pay too much– and they shouldn’t! In a world where we are all more money conscious and the power of FOMO is reinforced by social media, the Fun% is redefining what it looks like to have a good time with their own personal brand of scrappy, resourceful creativity. The new Smirnoff campaign showcases this with a range of diverse cast members, in age, ethnicity, gender, sexual preference, and background, and all of whom embody the Fun% in their own, unique way.

Budweiser Teams Up With Jim Beam For A New Lager

This week Budweiser and Jim Beam Bourbon released some every cool news. They unveiled their highly anticipated collaborative brew Budweiser Reserve Copper Lager. The new beer celebrates two all-American brands that survived Prohibition and have thrived in their respective businesses for a collective 365 years.

The third installment in Budweiser’s Reserve Collection, Copper Lager, will be available nationwide through the holiday season. Copper Lager is an American lager-style beer, brewed with two-row barley and aged on Jim Beam bourbon barrel staves. The charred American oak staves, which previously served as barrels aging Jim Beam for four years, create a toasted oak aroma, while the beer has a deliciously nutty taste with caramel rye and vanilla notes and the classically smooth Budweiser finish. The new specialty beer will be available in heritage glass bottles and on draught at bars across the country.

“We’re very excited to bring the highly anticipated Budweiser Reserve Copper Lager to beer and bourbon aficionados from across the country,” said Ricardo Marques, Vice President of marketing for Budweiser. “By working closely together with our friends at Jim Beam, we’ve brewed something truly unique that stays true to the incredible legacy of these two American icons.”

This year marks the 85th anniversary of the Repeal of Prohibition and both brands share unique histories of surviving the 13 years in which America went dry. The partnership between Budweiser and Jim Beam began in April as a cross-merchandising program and now includes Copper Lager, a uniquely innovative beer combining the heritage, quality and passion from both companies.
