Jim Beam Devil’s Cut Whiskey

The so-called “angel’s share” is the whiskey that evaporates from barrels aging in the rickhouse. So it makes sense that the “devil’s cut” is that which remains trapped in the wood.

Through an extraction process, this whiskey is harvested, combined with 6-year-old bourbon, and bottled at 90 proof for a robust new take on Jim Beam. You can try it neat, on the rocks or mixed with cola, but some nights just call for a shot. Just say the devil made you do it. JimBeam.com/devils-cut.

Try: Gilley’s in TI.

Buy: Total Wine & More, $24 (750 ml).

Bruce and Eric Bromberg

By Max Jacobson

Bruce and Eric Bromberg acquired their love of food while accompanying their globetrotting businessman father on his travels, and we are the beneficiaries. The concept for Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar & Grill sprang from the original Blue Ribbon in Greenwich Village, N.Y., an eclectic restaurant that still offers terrific versions of matzo ball soup and fried chicken. Cosmopolitan CEO John Unwin agressively recruited them, and today, big brother Eric remains mostly in New York City, while younger brother Bruce has relocated to Las Vegas with his wife and children.
