No, not that Chuck Norris.

No, not that Chuck Norris.


So my friends are probably going to laugh because they won’t believe that I put this idea into ESM, but for the first installment of our “Blame it on the…” (insert libation here) series, I decided to write about a little something I like to call “The Chuck Norris”.

Essentially, “The Chuck Norris” is not a drink, but a series of drinks that you drink together in one evening:

  • Patron
  • Corona
  • Scotch

It took me a really long time to figure out a name for these mighty warriors, because I wanted something that had a western flavor, an american heritage and a killer kick. Hence, “The Chuck Norris” was born.

You can also call it “The Walker, Texas Ranger” if you want. Same difference.

Here’s how to use it in a sentence: “Honey, I think you better drive. I’m doing a Chuck Norris tonight.”


To create Essential Style for Men, mix 2 parts petrol, 1 part secret agent, 1 part rock and roll, 1 part hip-hop and a shot of tequila in a shaker with ice and vigorously shake for 20 seconds. Pour into a martini glass rimmed with explosives and have a supermodel serve for all your friends to enjoy.
