The holidays are the most wonderful time of the year for many reasons, but chief among them is celebrating with the ones we love. And let's be honest, more often than not, celebrating means a license for liberal imbibing, and if you're not already adept at crafting a cocktail for yourself and friends, then hopefully you know someone who takes on that responsibility with great care and pride. That VIP is to whom this gift guide is aimed, and I can assure you—speaking as an enthusiastic (albeit amateur) cocktail hobbyist who revels in the minutiae of the well-prepared libation—these gifts are 100% winners. Have fun browsing, and add to cart with confidence.
