The Essential Gift Guide for people who like to drink

‘Tis the season… for parties, for fun, for celebrations, and well, for booze. You know what I love most about the holidays after the decorations? White elephant gift exchanges. And they don’t even have to be the “weird” gift exchanges. The regular ones make me really happy too. And you know what always does well at a gift exchange? Booze gifts.

So today, I’m giving you the rundown of my favorite booze gifts - not only are they great gifts for a gender neutral gift exchange, but they’re also great host/hostess gifts or just generally good holiday gifts for people who like to drink.

Cocktail Books: Nick and I own The Savoy Cocktail Book and The Dead Rabbit Drinks Manual.

The Savoy Cocktail Book ($19.95) is a reprint of the 1930s edition, created by Harry Craddock who left the U.S. during the Prohibition and joined the American Bar at the Savoy Hotel in London. There he created some of the world’s most famous classic cocktails, including the Corpse Reviver #2, and popularized the Dry Martini. This book is particularly great for anyone who enjoys art deco or the 20s and 30s in general, and especially if they enjoy classic cocktails!

Fun Fact about Harry Craddock - he was born in Gloucestershire, but moved to CLEVELAND and worked at the Hollanden Hotel!

The Dead Rabbit Drinks Manual ($18.36) was created by the Dead Rabbit Grocery & Grog in Lower Manhattan - an American bar institution that has won practically every bar award worth winning, including World’s Best Bar and World’s Best Cocktail Menu. This book offers a modern take on classic cocktails, another must- have for any cocktail lover!
