Esquire published an interview today with Bill Murray, leaving us wishing we could party with the guy. Murray, along with his friend and famed actor/dancer Mikhail Baryshnikov, have invested in a new spirit called Slovenia Vodka.

Why vodka, you ask? Murray explained that his love for vodka began when he used it to replace wine at his annual Christmas party, and realized vodka yielded much better results with his guests. “The year before, people would leave at, like, two or three in the morning. With the vodka luge, they didn’t leave until five. The last two years I’ve had this luge. That’s how I like to drink. Out of a large ice structure.” Can’t wait to try it! Wonder how it stacks up to Suntory… Here’s some other stuff we loved today:
