A new year is here and new year’s resolutions are on everyone’s mind. It could be a year to stop bad habits, practice self-love more or achieve personal or professional goals, big or small. What matters most is it is realistic, sustainable, and helps one’s overall well-being.
Lessening stress is one great resolution to start 2022 with. And to get you on track, here’s a list of curated shows and quality Boozy deals available at your disposal.
1. Impractical Joker x The Glenlivet Founder's Reserve 700ml
Let’s start with the bad news. Joe Gatto, one fourth of the Tenderloins comedy troupe in the show, “Impractical Joker” has left the building. The show and its cast has been on the show since 2011 and garnered fans worldwide for their incredibly ridiculous and shameless stunts against each other and unsuspecting victims of their antics. Joe announced on New Year’s Eve that he decided to part ways with his show to spend time “being the best father and co-parent to [his] two incredible kids” after his split from his longtime wife. While the show will continue with the remaining members and real-life friends of Joe namely Sal Vulcano, Brian Quinn and James Murray, some of the Impractical Jokers were taken out of TruTV and HBO Max platforms after the announcement.
Celebrate Joe’s years of giving us comic relief with the Glenlivet Founder’s Reserve. The single malt whiskey is a special recipe whipped up as a tribute to the man behind the Glenlivet, George Smith. Awarded with the Gold Award in the 2021 International Spirits Challenge, the Founder’s Reserve is a top-grade smooth, creamy, fruity liquor with its pale gold shimmer. Nothing but the best to bid adieu to an old pal.
2. Euphoria x Hoegaarden White 500ml Can
If you’re still reeling for more Zendaya after watching Spider-man: No Way Home, Euphoria is the show for you. Taking a more serious role, she stars as Rue Bennet as a teenager navigating her way back from rehab in this American adaptation of an Israeli show with the same title. Together with other high school students, the group figures out how to explore their adolescent life: romantic love, friendship, sex, drugs, trauma and social media. Because of her stellar performance, Zendaya claimed the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series. Its second season just began airing this month so it’s not too late to start from its first episode.
Not feeling so euphoric after all that drama? Let all that go with a can of tasty Hoegaarden White. With a 600 year history to bat, the original Belgian wheat beer has been enjoyed by many people across generations and the globe. Its time-tested brew of coriander, curacao, and orange peels results in divine and refreshing flavors and aroma to the taster’s delight.
3. And Just Like that (Sex in the City) x Absolut Citron 700ml
Reboots are all the rage and the fabulous ladies from the Sex and the City are back on HBO Max. In Just Like That, Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, and Kristin Davis play our beloved New Yorkers Carrie, Miranda, and Charlotte as they figure out their lives, life in their fifties - past their glitzy and whirlwind thirties. While Kim Catrall did not return as our favorite vixen, Samantha Jones, there are new faces representing diverse backgrounds adding their own share of twists to the plot.
The hit-show revolutionized one cocktail and it is none other than the Cosmopolitan. Throughout the series, all four fashionable girlfriends are seen with this pink drink in martini glasses both daytime at a restaurant or in the evening at a bar. This sparked thousands of women across America to order one or maybe more of this sweet concoction. To make one Cosmo, get an Absolut Citron for your vodka. Enjoy the all natural and clean taste with lemon flavor at an equally irresistible price of less than a thousand pesos.
4. Single’s Inferno x Ruffino Riserva Ducale Oro 750ml
Tired of your scripted Korean dramas? Give Single’s Inferno a watch to see the latest reality dating sensation on Netflix. Blazing through to the top 10 most-watched Netflix shows on a global scale, twelve single (and mighty attractive) Koreans arrive on a deserted island looking for love. They can only escape the island or “inferno” by pairing up with another singleton anonymously. The lucky couples will go on a date and experience Paradise, a luxury hotel. Only there can they reveal their age and their profession. The 7-episode series wrapped up last January 8 so there’s plenty of time to get up to speed.
The show may leave you feeling uber romantic so sip your feelings with Ruffino Riserva Ducale Oro. Its aromas of cherry, plum, and violet will make you fall in love with this distinctive Tuscan wine. To top it off, this multi-awarded wine only uses selected grapes during its exceptional vintage years so you’re in for a very fine treat.
5. Attack on Titan S6 x Jameson Black Barrel 700ml
For manga and anime fans worldwide, January is the month to watch out for. Since the release of its cliffhanger episode back in March, the dark fantasy Attack on Titan is finally back on Netflix airing the second part of its final installment. Continuing from the last scene, Eren Yeager is in a full swing war with the Marleyans after the latter’s surprise attack on Paradis Island. After years of production, how will the show end and most importantly who will prevail? We can only find out at the finale.
Relieved to see some Titans gruesomely battling out and back in action? End your Monday evening right with both AOT screen time and a glass of Jameson Black Barrel. Placed in American bourbon barrels and Spanish sherry butts, this triple distilled Irish Whiskey boasts an irresistible aroma of butterscotch and creamy toffee fudge and nutty notes with spice and vanilla sweetness.
6. Demon Slayer S2 x Cinzano Prosecco 750ml
Demon Slayer (Kimetsu no Yaiba) is on its second season called Entertainment District Arc. The popular and bankable anime series follows Tanjiro Kamado whose goal is to save his only living sister, Nezuko, by finding a cure so she can be a human being again and not a bloodthirsty demon. Along the way, he joins the Demon Slayer Corps, an organization committed to fending off demons and by doing so, saving humanity.
The last two shows may be too gory for some so let’s end it on a brighter note with a sparkling wine from Cinzano in Italy. Perfect as an aperitivo, its Prosecco variant provides fresh and floral flavors with green apple and pear notes. Once consumed, complement your wine-filled stomach with seafood, white meat, and vegetables. Your tummy will be thanking you for the combo.
