Looking for last-minute premium holiday gift ideas?
As 2020 draws to a close, we could all use a cocktail or two. Here is the perfectly packaged drinkable gift for the upcoming holiday season that is personalized for each palette. Our carefully curated list has something for the single malt connoisseur, sophisticated fashionista, and trend-setters extraordinaire.
PATRON x MM
Fashion fans everywhere will enjoy this boutique cocktail kit that includes everything you need to mix like a pro. PATRÓN and Muddling Memories have teamed up with fashion darling Olivia Palermo, to create a cocktail based on her forecasted 2021 fashion trends.
Elegant PATRÓN Reposado adds notes of caramel and oak to the vibrant pink ruby red grapefruit and bright yellow lemon juice, with a nod to spring florals with elderflower and chrysanthemums. Soft flecks of peppercorn and salt twirl around in the well-balanced mix, while the lime wheels act as buttons on a coat and can be layered in the glass to create an Instagram-worthy cocktail. Treat yourself to some much-needed relaxation and serenity while you sip with some “Tonal” palo santo in the air.
Included in the kit: Shaker, Jigger, Stirrer, Ruby Red Grapefruit Juice, Lemon Juice, Elderflower Cordial, Salted Pink Peppercorn, Dehydrated Lime, Dried Edible Flower, and 1 Sustainably Harvested Palo Santo Stick. MuddlingMemories.com.
Bourbon has been one of the hottest trends this year, and every bar should have a bottle of classic Maker’s Mark. The small-batch Kentucky bourbon was founded in 1958, and several gift baskets are available at SpiritedGifts.com.
Maker’s Mark truly got into the spirit this year by transforming the town square of Ripley, Tennessee into an holiday display. The Maker’s team created a completely customized display that transformed the small town of Ripley into a full winter showcase.
WESTWARD AMERICAN SINGLE MALT
Single malt fans will be impressed with the striking redesign on the highly-rated Westward bottle, and the liquid is for those that appreciate the finer things in life. Established in Oregon in 2004, Westward Whiskey is inspired by the culture, climate, and natural ingredients of the American Northwest.
Westward’s new visual identity was developed in collaboration with Pearlfisher, an award-winning design agency by working non-stop to capture the essence of Westward and its commitment to quality.WestwardWhiskey.com
