Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Erin Wasson may have covered numerous international versions of Vogue, snagged ad campaigns for brands ranging from Michael Kors to H&M, and starred as the face of Clinique, Maybelline, and more, but, when she's home in Dallas, she really just wants to be at her favorite hometown bar, drinking frozen, boozy Yoo-Hoos. She breaks it down for a recent Into the Gloss profile:

When going out in Dallas, I’ll probably be at The Double Wide hanging out with friends. It’s my kind of bar—no bells and whistles, no fuss—and a bunch of my friends DJ there in the evenings. They have a frozen Yoo-Hoo drink, oh man it is dangerous and has a shit load of booze in it. It comes out like a Slurpee machine. I also love The Grapevine. How many nights have I spent shooting some basketball, playing on the pool table there? It’s so nostalgic. These are the places I was hanging out at when I was young. When I'm there, I like to drink whiskey and ginger because it gets the job done.

All we're missing are the step-by-step Yoo-Hoo drink instructions.
