Gifts for the alcohol enthusiast

Wine sippy cup ($18.99)

Sippy cups are classy if they’re filled with wine

Wine sippy cup ($18.99)

Wine glasses are breakable, and red wine is super stain-y. The more wine is consumed, the more those two features become problematic. The Swig stemless wine tumbler solves those problems with a sippy cup-style lid and solid construction. Plus, it’s double-walled and vacuum-sealed, keeping beverages cold for up to 24 hours and hot for up to 12 hours.

Watershed Old Fashioned ($34.99)

For the bourbon lover who doesn’t like to fuss with making cocktails, Watershed Distillery offers a bottled Old Fashioned, pre-made with Watershed bourbon, bitters, raw sugar and Ohio cherry juice.

Available locally wherever Watershed products are sold

Carry-On Cocktail Kit ($24)

Unfortunately, most airlines do not carry the Watershed Old Fashioned. But you can upgrade airline alcohol with this carry-on cocktail kit, complete with recipe card, spoon/muddler, bitters, cane sugar and a linen coaster. Also available in Moscow Mule, Bloody Mary and other varieties.

Beer moleskine($5)

Remember that one beer you had at that one friend’s house? No? Me neither. But with the pocket-sized 33 Bottles of Beer journal, you can jot down the name, price and your own star rating while easily and quickly noting the character of the beer on the flavor wheel.

Wine aerator ($16.95)

You don’t have to be a wine snob to know that red wine tastes better after it sits and breathes. But who wants to pour a glass and then wait around for half an hour or more? This aerator/pourer from Vintorio attaches directly to the bottle and gives you a sufficiently oxidized taste right away.
