Presents are nice, presents that are alcohol-based are nicer. Give the gift that makes the holidays really cheery and bright. (Get it? We'll see ourselves out...)
Cooper & Thief Gift Set, $30
This was aged in bourbon barrels, and comes in a gift back with two rocks glasses—a nod to their aging process.
Don Papa Rum, $40
It's the first small-batch premium rum from the Philippines, and it's new to the U.S. With a rich, sweet style and fruity notes, your booze-lovin' friend will thank you.
Gummy bears (Available in Moscow Mule, Champagne, Old Fashioned, and Apple Cinnamon Manhattan), $4
These cocktail-inspired gummy bears are the perfect little somethin’ somethin’ for everyone.
Grey Goose x Away Cocktail Set, $55
If you happen to be in NYC, Grey Goose and Away Travel have partnered up this holiday season to give you a taste of Grey Goose's signature cocktails even when 30,000 feet in the air. You’ll be perfect set up to create 4 cocktails: Le Grand Fizz, the elegant Le Fizz, the late night accompaniment Espresso Martini, and the classic Martini.
Available at Away Travel Flagship, 10 Bond Street, NYC
Jameson Caskmates IP Edition, $30
Collaborating with a local Irish brewery, Jameson Caskmates IPA is finished in craft IP barrels, combining the smooth taste of Jameson with a crisp hop finish.
Volcan Cristalino, $60
Cristalino is the perfect tequila to make margaritas with, hands down. Called the newest form of tequila, the Tequila Regulatory Council (yes, that’s a thing) is expected to formally recognize this sub-section of tequila come 2018. Basically, it’s a clear añejo tequila. And with hints of vanilla and caramel, it’s delicious.
Putting together a drink at home usually ends with opening some wine or beer, because who even has these things? Well, now they will. Try the classic Cointreau, which is an orange liqueur…
...or St-Germain, which is a sweet liqueur made from elderflowers (perfect to add to Champagne-based cocktails)…
...or Chambord, an all-natural raspberry liqueur perfect for the holidays.
