The holidays are all about coming together and celebrating, and there’s no better way to do that than with a drink. If the season’s kept you too busy to get out and shop for your loved ones, a bottle of alcohol is an always-welcome gift that’s sure to get good use:
This Italian light beer is a great transitional beer for those who stick to Bud Light a little too much. Its light flavor makes it great to enjoy in a tall glass and pairs perfectly with everything from fish to gingerbread cookies.
For Your Nephew, Who Won’t Shut Up About Studying Abroad:
Shochu is an alcohol from Japan that’s the next great thing in cocktail making. It’s slowly infiltrating American cocktail bar menus, and is the perfect way to tell Jacob that someone else has also been out of the country, too.
For Your Little Sister, Who Doesn’t Like the Taste:
This light, airy wine is sweet without being too sweet to have to put down. It also has a regulated alcohol content that makes it the perfect wine to enjoy throughout the night without having to send an apology email the next morning.
For Your Aunt, Who Is Now Jealous of Your Mother’s Gift:
This “cool” aunt needs to always be up on the latest trends, which rose is perfectly on point for, especially seeing as you don’t really remember if she drinks white or red. All she’ll need now for this lighter, more refreshing wine is a long straw.
For Your Grandpa, A Bourbon Drinker If There Ever Was One:
This bourbon, first made in Kentucky in 1840, is as American as it gets. It’s a little more rugged and tough than some of the more refined whiskies out there, but, just like grandpa himself, you love it just the same.
