It’s that time of year again, the holidays! It’s party time! In this video men’s style, grooming, fitness and lifestyle expert, Aaron Marino of IAmAlphaM, AaronMarino, and Pete & Pedro goes over how to mix a drink like a gent so you can throw a stylish party and add to your gentlemanly skill set.

Three Signature Cocktails

  1. Amsterdam Mule – use a metal mug. Use the juice of 1/2 lime. 2 ounces of high quality vodka, which Alpha prefers Amsterdam Spirits Vodka. Add 1/2 ounce of simple sugar. Fill cup to top with ice. Pour in non-alcoholic ginger beer. Garnish with lime. Smack a spring of mint and add to drink.
  2. Dirty Martini – use vodka or gin, which Alpha is using vodka. Martini’s can be stirred or shaken. Shake it up! Make the glass as cold as possible. Fill shaker with ice. Add 2 ounces of vodka. Add 1/2 ounce of dry vermouth. 1/2 ounce +/- of olive juice depending how dirty you like it. Shake for 5 to 10 seconds or else it’ll get watery. Pour and garnish with speared olive.
  3. Gin and Tonic – light and refreshing. You need a glass filled with ice. 1 1/2 ounce of gin. Add tonic water and fill the rest of the way. Garnish with lemon and lime.

Cold showers are amazing for getting the juices flowing, help you shower faster, and have all sorts of health benefits. One benefit I love is getting my morning routines done quickly. They’ll help you speed up your morning routine because they promote efficiency as you want to get out quicker. To expedite my cold shower, I apply my shampoo, then wash and scrub my body with a loofah (you’ll get cleaner and exfoliated), wash my face/neck/beard, and then shave. The shower is the perfect time to combine tasks, and shaving is one of them. Just use your wash – it’s an incredible shave cream that’s quick, easy, and time-saving.
