Jameson Black Barrel Irish Whiskey is an official partner of Movember again this year to help raise awareness for men’s health. Movember is the movement where dudes around the world grow a mustache in the month of November to raise money for health issues like prostate and testicular cancer and mental health. Yep, it can be a pretty ugly time with millions of guys sprouting porn staches, but its an incredibly important cause to help change the face of men’s health.

Jameson will donate $100 to the Movember Foundation, up to  $100,000, for every person who joins the Jameson Black Barrel Network from now through the end of Novmember 2015.

To get guys to join, Jameson sent out fancy pants shaving kits with top quality lotions and potions from Baxter of California, and is sponsoring free clean-ups every Tuesday at barbershops in New York, LA and Chicago.

In Austin, Jameson Irish Whiskey is co-hosting a Movember Shave Off  event at Whisler’s on Thursday, Oct. 29 from 6 to 10 p.m. The shave off features the “Jameson Barbershop” upstairs in Mezcalaría Tobalá, along with a special Jameson cocktail menu. There will be special Movember drinks including a Black Barrel Old Fashioned, Jameson Buck, Jameson Caskmates on the rocks and the Black Barrel on the rocks. No cover charge.

Get involved by donating money, growing a stache and drinking along with Jameson.

icenhauer’s makes a drink for Movember

I’ve been a strong supporter of the Livestrong Foundation and have raised more than $15,000 over the past few year’s to help people fight cancer. So when I saw that icenhauer’s has created a drink called The Hair Raiser  and will donate $1 from every one sold in Movember  to the  The Livestrong Foundation, I got pretty excited. Here is an easy way to support an important cause, doing something I love.

Movember is a fantastic movement that encourages men to grow a furry caterpillar on their upper lip to raise awareness for prostate cancer. If you weren’t aware that this is going on, its the reason you see otherwise clean shaven dudes trying to sprout “porn stars,” “handlebars,” and  the occasional “fu man shu.”

I did it a couple years ago and just can’t bare the disgusted looks I get when people see how ugly I look in a mustache. I’m glad I can lazily support Movember by drinking The Hair Raiser. icenhauers says the spicy, simple and fresh drink is sure grow some hair on your face.

The Hair Raiser

  • 1.5 ounce of Belvedere Bloody Mary Vodka
  • Cucumber slice
  • Jalapeño slice
  • Muddle both the cucumber and the jalapeño
  • Add simple syrup and fresh lime juice
  • Shake and strain over ice
