GolfBlogger’s 2022 Holiday Gift Guide: Food and Beverage
For some things perhaps a bit outside the norm for gifts, here are a couple of food and beverage items I have enjoyed over this past year. I for one would not at all mind finding jerky and pickle juice in my stocking this year instead of candy.
Confused? Read on.
Teacher’s Comments: Vodka, with a hint of vanilla and botanicals. Great in cocktails.

Fuzzy Zoeller has joined the growing ranks of celebrity distillers with his namesake “Ultra Premium” vodka. I’m not much of a vodka drinker, far preferring bourbon, rye, Irish whisky and scotch. But I do like a martini and a Mule, and Fuzzy’s Vodka was perfect for that.
Old Trapper Old Fashioned Beef Jerky
Teacher’s Comments: The perfect on-the-course food.
Read GolfBlogger’s complete Old Trapper Jerky Review
Old Trapper Beef Jerky is the perfect choice for an on-course snack. Jerky doesn’t melt like a candy bar, it is not messy, doesn’t really need to be refrigerated over the round of a golf for food safety and takes up little space in your bag.
Contrast that with the egg salad sandwich I saw one of my compatriots eating on a hot day this last summer.
Old Trapper is tasty and the protein rich snack offer sustainable energy over the round.
Pickle Juice Shots Review
Teacher’s Comments: I believe that it works to alleviate muscle cramps, but there is no way to be sure.

Pickle juice seems an unlikely panacea for muscle cramps but it may in fact be just what the doctored ordered. With a higher concentration of electrolytes of many sports drinks, along with additional vitamins and minerals, I’ve found that it absolutely works for me.
