This is not a drill people.
Every time an alcohol company launches another product, coffee, seltzer, whatever… the immediate reaction is, “is this real?” Yes people, Jägermeister Cold Brew is 100% real and it’s clocking in at a whopping 33% alcohol. Yes, you heard that correctly, 33 PERCENT alcohol.
Ok, this is certifiably out of control right now.
Just when you were starting to think that this whole hard seltzer craze might be losing some steam, just when you were starting to think that the reign of White Claw might be coming to an abrupt halt as the summer nights slowly fade into those brisk fall days, just when you thought that #WhiteClawSummer was inevitably about to fall victim to the cult-like unstoppable force known as “Pumpkin Spice,” White Claw says “hey, not so fast motherfuckers. I got an idea.”
The combo you didn’t even know you needed, and definitely the one that nobody asked for but we all probably should’ve seen coming… the new Pumpkin Spice White Claw.
1. Five O’clock Somewhere Jimmy Buffett and Alan Jackson:
Why we love it: What would Jimmy Buffett do? Anything he damn well pleases and you should too! The motto of the song is to relax and not to take life too seriously. The song is about a guy who blows off work to drink and have fun. Now I am not encouraging you all to quit your jobs. However, one cannot deny we have all been tempted to walk out of the office, sail away to the nearest Tiki Bar and have a Hurricane or two! Buffett and Jackson made day drinking something every American shouldn’t be ashamed of. I will drink to that!
Pour me somethin' tall an' strong,
Make it a "Hurricane" before I go insane.
It's only half-past twelve but I don't care.
It's five o'clock somewhere.
Your job is to ensure everyone is safe and having fun…not to be their caretaker.

Cosmo: Although, the origin of the Cosmo is still debatable, it is claimed to have been given birth in Provincetown, MA in the 1970’s. However, it’s popularity sky-rocked in the 90’s thanks to the glamorous, nympho-maniac Samantha Jones of Sex and the City. The show catapulted the pretty and pink drink served in a martini glass onto the map! Although, drinkers hate to love and love to hate Cosmos, they are synonymous with fun, after-work gossip binges with your girlfriends, sexuality and femininity. The Cosmo remains a popular guilty pleasure drink of choice in North America.
Cool Fact: In the late 60’s business men for Ocean Spray were looking for ways to market their drink to adults. They printed a recipe for an alcoholic beverage (of the same ingredients) called the Harpoon, on every carton of juice. This peaked the curiosity of bartenders. They experiment with creating drinks using cranberry juice. The rest is history!
