SKYY Coastal Cranberry Vodka: What’s Thanksgiving without cranberry? Cranberry vodka that is. SKYY Vodka has included another fruity flavor to their collection of infusions. It is both sweet and tart and gives any cocktail a festive kick. Today, vodka cranberry is one of the most popular cocktails ordered at the bar, but the cranberry juice makes it quite the calorie booster. Instead of ordering vodka cranberry, serve yourself some cranberry vodka and you can have the same experience without the extra calories.
Call of Duty: Black Hops III: In honor of the highly-anticipated new Call of Duty video game, Black Hops Brewing Co. has created the world’s first Call of Duty craft beer: Black Hops III.

In just 12 months, they went from brewing in their own garage to partnering with one of the most successful video game franchises in history. Though it has a very dark color, it is still a light and refreshing brew, similar to a summery pale ale.
Death by Coconut: Death by Coconut by Oscar Blues Brewery is making its national debut this season.
