Looking for the perfect gift for the cocktail lover in your life? I’ve got you covered.
I don’t know about you, but I think we are all missing out on in-person foodie and cocktail bar experiences this year so…what could be better than a gift that brings that experience home?
Here’s my list of top gifts for cocktail lovers, cocktail enthusiasts, and cocktail novices alike. They are all available at Neiman Marcus AND if you order them for curbside pickup Santa will bring them to your car (more about that at end of post).
These little babies are pure GENIUS. Carefully crafted from some of the best-sourced ingredients in the world. Imagine a perfect cocktail where you don’t have to measure, search for ingredients or follow a complicated recipe! These conveniently cubed cocktail mixers will revolutionize the way you craft a cocktail. Shake or stir one cube until dissolved, with a shot of the spirit of your choice, to make your own perfectly crafted cocktail.
A snack AND a cocktail? Sign me up. These gummies not only taste like your favorite cocktail, they actually HAVE an alcohol content! This box includes 10 5% ABV and fruit blend cocktail gummies.
Edible Glitter Dust
This is one of my favorites and the key to making your cocktails the perfect amount of “extra”. Smith & Sinclair’s Edible Cocktail Glitter Dust instantly enhancing your cocktails with shimmer and color. The edible cocktail enhancers dissolve in drinks to provide fruity flavor and a dazzling effect. All you need is a third of a teaspoon of this vegan-friendly formula to create out of this world “galaxy-like cocktails”.
I’ve shared with you before in my post “Five cocktail Glasses everyone Should Have in their Home” how double old fashioneds are my go-to glass for a ton of different cocktails. It’s the most versatile of all cocktail glasses. So when it comes to mixing up and lifting holiday spirits what could be more perfect than a festive double old fashioned glass.
We all have that one friend. No matter how many times you correct them, they will always belt out “Hold me closer, Tony Danza.” Embrace the hilarity of getting the lyrics to “Tiny Dancer” and other songs so wrong with these clever coasters. The cork designs come in two styles: classic rock and greatest hits. Classic rock includes hits like “I Wanna Hold Your Ham.” And then there are the greatest hits, with tunes like “Hit Me With Your Pet Shark.” Each set of six laugh-out-loud coasters makes a memorable housewarming or “just because” gift. Our suggestion: Use them to spark a round of mistaken lyrics karaoke.
Fun fact: This odd (and hysterical) phenomena has a name. The word “mondegreen” originates from a misheard bit of an old Scottish ballad.
They may look like candy but they are actually a an adult “luxury food”. designed to mimic the taste of your first sip of wine these tasty gummies are free from: gluten, nuts, gelatin (which makes them suitable for vegans) , fat, lactose and artificial coloring. And yes, and they are also free from alcohol. All this makes the wine gums more accessible for those with allergies, or if you don’t drink alcohol. Pro tip- they taste really great when you eat them while drinking wine!
Champagne and Wine Night Kits
These fun little kits contains everything but the booze! The Champagne Kit is an effervescent 10-piece set includes gold rimming sugar, two coasters, “Ring for Champagne” bell, two swizzle sticks, decision coin, gold-tone champagne stopper, champagne cocktail recipes, and metallic confetti. . Wine Night has 11 essentials to help you “wine down”- wine glass marker, two coasters, stain removing spray, “If you can read this, bring me some wine” socks, decision coin, three wine removing towelettes, gold-tone wine stopper, and gold-tone corkscrew.
