Holiday Gifts for the Booze Lover

December 18, 2012

So I have waited on this one the the last minute, I know, but there is still time.  Booze alweays makes a great gift either for the connoisseur for those who need it just to maintain with the fam.

here are a couple great ones to get.

Campari_Nespolo_300Campari Limited Edition Art Label 2012

Campari is essential to any booze hound that likes making drinks at home and  this bottle is part of a series of special labeling that will make your giftee want a Negroni on sight.

The new label reinterprets Leonetto Cappiello’s 1921 Spiritello print, and has been designed to bring a colourful and eye-catching twist to this classic, as well as a contemporary edge.


21457Russian Standard Gold Gift Box

Russian Standard Gold is a unique combination of classic vodka and carefully selected extracts of Siberian Ginseng, or “golden root” in Russian, adding vigor and vitality to celebrations.

The product packaging – with its sumptuously embossed gold foiled label and one-of-a-kind gift box – embodies the true traditions of Russian generosity and gift giving. This is what makes Russian Standard Gold an ideal vodka to celebrate the many golden moments in life shared with friends, family and colleagues.

Puerto-Rico-Caliche-RumCaliche Rum

We have reviewed this little treasure in the past, but a brief recap: Caliche is a Puerto Rican and solera style rum from Destileria Serralles, the only 100% sustainable distillery in the world, and was created by a joint effort of Roberto Serralles and Rande Gerber.

Take a look at the review and interview here 


HOLA! Tequila and Edible Cocktails

Microsoft Word - HolaTequila-Robin'sVersion.docYour gifts don’t have to be limited to the bottle.  This year two fantastic books were released that should be on every bartender and cocktail geek’s shelf.  Hola! Tequila by Colleen Graham is an in depth look at the world of tequila, how it’s made and some great recipes that go waaaaaaay beyond the margarita.

6a00e553b3da208834016766987adc970b-500wiEdible Cocktails by Natalie Bovis also a must have.  I find myself reaching for this book as much as I do the books by Dale Degroff and Tony Abou-Ganim.  Natalie created and compiled recipes from bartenders all over the world using homemade, fresh, organic,  and garden-to glass ingredients with simple and easy to follow instructions.  I get inspired (sips??) every time I take a peak inside.

Cheers and Happy Holidays everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!
