Jazz Up Your Emmys Viewing With Cocktail Courier 

This Monday marks the 70th annual Emmy Awards, and smug, unlikeable hosts aside, it's always a great night of honoring the entertainment that's a part of our everyday lives—TV.  And even if you aren't throwing an Emmys party and are instead planning on watching it from the couch with your significant other in sweats (like you always do), you should do something special to mark this momentous occasion in TV history.

That's right—you should drink!  Ketel One has paired up with Cocktail Courier (and master mixologist Charles Joly) to create Radiance, a cocktail dreamed up specifically for Emmy night.  The best part? Unlike a lot of other cocktail boxes that require you to buy your own booze (damn liquor laws!), Cocktail Courier includes everything you need to make the cocktails. The Radiance Kit ($50), includes vodka, liqueur,  mixers, bitters, and the like—to mix up two bangin' cocktails at home.

7 Awesome Gifts for Tennis Obsessives

The US Open is winding down, which is all the more reason to remember your tennis-obsessed friend, who will likely start spiraling into depression after it ends on September 9 and they no longer get to immerse themselves in the glory of their favorite sport.

Cheer them up with a tennis-themed gift. And try to find something that’s not a racket or a bucket of tennis balls (they’ve got those in spades) or a super cheesy, Etsy-crafted knickknack like a wine glass that says “GAME SET MATCH” or some kind of play on how love is zero (Get it? It’s funny because it’s ironic! HAHAHA love is meaningless!). Never fear—we’ve rounded up cool and useful gifts for tennis fans that will help sustain them until the Australian Open in January. Read it on Parade.

6 Easy Ways to Amp Up Your Next Cocktail party

Entertaining at home is fun, but it can be a little trying. With all of the cooking, cleaning, and merrymaking you need to do to ensure the shindig goes off without a hitch, it’s no wonder why, when it comes to the alcohol situation, you tend to keep it simple and offer only beer and wine, and maybe a big batch cocktail you stick in a bowl with a ladle.

But now that mixology has outlasted the naysayers who originally dismissed it as a trend, it’s likely you have a bunch of guests who know way more about craft cocktails than they did five years ago, and because of that, they’re probably showing up to your party craving a pisco sour or a jalapeño margarita way more than they’re craving a Bud Light or a Pinot Grigio.

Want to give your guests a night to remember?  Amp up your cocktail game. Read about how to do it on Parade.

Knockaround Shark Week Sunglasses

It’s officially summer, which means it’s finally beach season again. You can knock yourself out buying all sorts of gear for your sun and sand escapades, but one of the most important things to have when you hit the surf is a pair of sunglasses. They not only protect your eyes from the sun, but make you look really cool, too.

While you may covet a high-end pair of the latest trendy sunglasses, when you’re heading to the beach (and beachside cocktails will be involved), you should consider a more affordable pair that won’t ruin your day if you, say, lose them in the water, or crush them when you sit down on a lounge chair.

That’s where Knockaround sunglasses come in—great-looking, good-quality sunglasses that are all priced at $50 and under; some are even an insanely cheap $10.

The brand just released its official Shark Week 2018 sunglasses ($35, knockaround.com), the fourth installment of an on-going partnership with Discovery, the folks who brought us Shark Week. The 30th anniversary of Shark Week kicks off July 22 but you can start celebrating now with these unique shades.

The glasses’ design is decidedly awesome, with shark jaws lining the lenses, guaranteed to get you compliments while you’re hanging out at the beach this summer. It’s the one shark sighting that won’t freak anyone out.

Even more awesome than the glasses themselves? A portion of proceeds from this years’ release will go to Oceana, the leading international conservation organization focused on protecting and restoring the world’s oceans.

13 Awesome Father's Day Gifts 

Dads come in all shapes, sizes and personalities (old, young, city mouse, country mouse, sports fanatic, techie—the list goes on) but there’s one thing they all have in common: dads are notoriously hard to shop for. That’s why when Father’s Day rolls around each year, we tend to flip out and buy a bunch of random items that he most likely doesn’t want or need. This year, let’s break the cycle. Buy Dad something he’ll actually use, or, even better, never knew he wanted until you gave it to him. Check out our picks on Parade.
