SIMPLE IMPRESSIVE FESTIVE COCKTAILS / COCKTAIL GIFTS

Tis the season for impressive cocktails! On the surface, it's so much pressure, but be not afraid, for lo! I've got your back sistaz and brothers (Why, yes, I am watching Broad City while I type this.) The NYT has a quick, easy recipe for The Normandy, a Calvados-based holiday cocktail, and we've got the barware needed to pull it off - a mixing glass, muddler and strainer - bundled for $18.  The recipe also calls for a shaker, but you can easily just pour the cocktail over ice after mixing - volia!

If you're under-the-gun, we also have a full range of delicious small-batch cocktail mixers - choose your base spirit, add the mixer, garnish and serve! We've bundled this, too, with a jigger, mixing glass and spoon for only $22. Perfect for your holiday celebration/perfect as a gift to kick-start someone else's.

The recipe ingredients are simple:

  • Calvados (an apple brandy)
  • Sugar
  • Brown Sugar
  • Lemon
  • Cranberries
  • Granny Smith Apple

We've got holiday cocktail napkins, shot glasses, straws and highball glasses, too!

Thank you to everyone for such a fun, happy 2014. Have a wonderful Christmas, have a wonderful holiday season!
