Inspired Holiday Gifts for Cocktail Lovers

Alcohol in a Piñata

I admit that Facebook ads sometimes do work. When Nipata showed up in my feed, I clicked and thought to myself "GENIUS."  It's a traditional piñata filled with mini alcohol bottles. What a way to kick off a party!

They claim to be the #1 Adult Booze-filled Piñata. Sounds likely. I think the The Stay Classy Burrito (15 Bottles Pre-loaded) is a gift that will be a "hit" at your small family get togethers. Designed to withstand the power swings of inebriated adults and hold up to eight pounds of liquor. This piñata is designed for silliness. They use safe plastic bottles of liquor and candies, plus the hysterical NIPYATA!® Rules of the Game®.

Let's say you don't drink alcohol. Well, that's not a problem at the holidays -- Seedlip makes incredible distilled non-alcoholic spirits. I went to the Seedlip NYC launch party last year and thought the concept was clever. When put to the taste test I was convinced, non-alcoholic spirits are a trend that's here to stay.

Want to gift this? Try the Seedlip Sampler (3 Bottles) Grove 42, Spice 94, Garden 108 - 700 ML. For cocktail ideas try the Panoma. 

Panoma Ingredients

  • Seedlip Spice 94: 2 oz
  • Fresh Grapefruit: 1 oz
  • Fresh Lime: ½ oz
  • Simple Syrup*: ½ oz
  • Club Soda: 3 oz
  • Ice: Cubed

Panoma Directions

  1. Add all the ingredients except the club soda into a cocktail shaker.
  2. Shake & strain into a highball glass.
  3. Top w/ soda & add fresh cubes of ice.
  4. Garnish w/ a grapefruit peel.

*Simple Syrup: Warm equal parts water & sugar over medium heat. Stir until dissolved. Let cool.

Holiday G and T


I know some of my mom friends deserve a special cocktail. I wish I could meet my BFFs in person right now for a happy hour support group. If, like me, you can't meet your besties in person, I suggest a Drizly shipment and a zoom date. Drizly is an alcohol e-commerce platform that facilitates the delivery of alcohol. Think of it as Door Dash for booze. 

For this gift, come up with a custom cocktail and then send the Drizly gift to friends. All you need to do next is pick a date for a virtual cocktail party. Why not try a seasonal G&T: Add cranberry to your classic G&T to create a seasonally aware cocktail that’s also super refreshing. Head here to order.

New Drizly users can enter code HOLIDAY5, between 12/5 – 12/30 for $5 off or free delivery in valid states.

Holiday G&T Ingredients:


  1. Cranberry sangria spritzer cocktail
  2. Winter mule cocktail recipe
  3. White hot chocolate peppermint cocktail
