GRANDEZA? GREAT! EVENING MAGAZINE? DRUNK!

Marty Griswold

This video is a mess. These newscasters are messy. 

But the product they are sipping (way too much of...) is gold!

Watch the video to see grown newscasters act like fools. Then go order a cocktail; with Grandeza and thank the heavens your life didn't veer off the rails. If it had, you could have wound up as a Evening Magazine newscaster. And wouldn't that have been a kick in the pants? (NOT)

Now take another, longer sip of your deliciously-crafted. perfectly balanced Grandeza fueled cocktail and thank your lucky stars for the life you have and the Grandeza you are  drinking.

It doesn't get any better than this, eh?

WHEN YOU'RE ASKED TO DO THE TOAST....

...you damn well better have something rehearsed and ready to go, so you can have it trip off the tongue effortlessly without slowing your drinking down.

Here's mine. It's always a hit at every occasion. It may be lacking any holiday sentiment, but remember that most folks will be drunker than you... and will never question it. ENJOY!

BOOZE WHILE YOU LOSE!

As we head into the holidays, eating smart flies right up the chimney and cocktails flow in abundance (yay!). If you want to avoid the gym come January, try counting the calories in the glass versus on the plate. Happy Holidays!

FERNET CON COCA (FERNET & COKE)

Marty Griswold

Fernet and Coke, or Fernet con Coca, as it's known in Argentina, is basically Argentina's answer to Jack and Coke-one of those drinks that first-time drinkers cut their teeth on when they're first learning to make cocktails. And it's a good way to introduce yourself and ease your tastebuds into the wild flavors of Fernet-Branca.
