For the second year in a row, I’ve teamed up with Jameson Black Barrel, a proud partner of Movember.  Since 2003, millions have joined the movement to help fight against prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and poor mental health. Together, we’re here to start bold conversations about men’s health.

In 2009, my dad was diagnosed with prostate cancer. A month later, he had surgery, began hormone therapy, and started the grueling recovery process. Fast-forward 7 years to the week after his 76th birthday: his prognosis is good, and the cancer undetectable. Cheers to helping men (like my dad) live happier, healthier, longer lives!


Since I can’t grow a bold mustache, I’m making a bold cocktail. And with whiskey, ginger, and lime the Jameson Black Barrel Whiskey Buck packs a bold, delicious punch! In fact, this may just be my new favorite cocktail.

This recipe calls for ginger syrup and I’d suggest making your own. It’s super simple and I’ll even show you how to do it. Here’s the recipe —> GINGER SYRUP.


2 oz Jameson Black Barrel

1 lime, juiced

¾ oz ginger syrup

2-3 dashes Angostura Bitters

Ginger ale or soda water


Combine whiskey, lime juice, ginger syrup, and Angostura Bitters in a shaker. Add ice and shake vigorously. Pour over an iced-filled glass and top with ginger ale or soda water. Garnish with a wedge of lime.
