In case youre a rum, vodka, or shudder Everclear drinker, allow us to educate you about one of our favorite brands o booze. That would be Johnny Walker. This popular Scotch comes in a wondrously inebriating rainbow of labels. Red is what they call a mixing Scotch, which means you should drown it with ginger ale before you get your slurp on. Black is the standby fave decent on the rocks and superlative with whatever mixer youve got handy. Gold is great when frozen. Green, served neat, offers a whiff of peat moss as you slug it back. And the best of the bunch is Johnny Walker Blue. Its a premium blend that uses single malts aged up to 60 years. Each bottle boasts its own serial number and silk-lined box all for $200. Does your dad deserve anything less for Fathers Day? We think not. So were saying all aboard the good ship slur-a-lot for a special Johnny Walker Blue Label yacht event.
Yeah, this sounds like the kind of happening that a habitually wasted grain alcohol drinker shouldnt be allowed within 20 feet of, but lucky you, the folks at Johnny Walker dont know any better. To prove that, check this out: The event is free, its taking place aboard a 130-foot yacht docked across from the Eden Roc Hotel, and it runs from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Stop by and try to act classy. Oh, and get Dad an extra-special gift a custom-engraved bottle of Blue at no additional cost.
