Nashville Is Cocktail City

Move over, New York and San Francisco: Music City is also Cocktail City. Nashville has long had honky-tonks, dive bars and a Southern weirdness all its own. But now that it’s been deemed an A-list hot spot, the city has become as good a place for a fancy libation as for a PBR. Cocktail bars like Patterson House and Holland House Bar & Refuge are as creative as any you’ll find in bigger cities, and you’ll like their prices much more. Here are five boozy infusions inspired by Nashville’s best cocktail bars, along with recipes so you can create your own at home.

Breakfast-Flavored Booze. Finally!

Liqueurs that taste like bacon, pancakes and donuts are some of the most ridiculous things ever. So it was with a certain amount of trepidation that we pulled up to the business side of the highly recommended Mama Walker’s breakfast-fueled line of liqueurs. From Maple Bacon to Blueberry Pancake and Glazed Donut, these 70 proof, yes, 70 PROOF, flavors could be the kind of kick you need to end your day on a high note.

How We Stopped Worrying and Started Inhaling

Welcome to the dawning age of the vaporizer.

The widespread fervor for this delivery medium didn’t hit the general public until 2006, and it didn’t develop a full head of steam until, um, now, when almost anything that can be vaporized is being vaporized. There are vaporizers for THC and the weed it’s drawn from, vaporizers for insulin to treat diabetics, vaporizers for booze (the vaportini, anyone?), even vaporizers for chocolate and coffee. And there’s a host of vaporizing gadgets, like the increasingly popular, stealthy vapor pen — if you need a buying guide, look no further than High Times.
