Whilst we may not be sipping on quarantinis this Christmas, pouring a fresh G&T ahead of our festive Zoom quiz, or rolling our the bar cart at noon on a Tuesday just because - we’re still just as into our cocktails as we were this time last year.
Whether your friends and family have been cocktail-shaking obsessed for years, or have only just taken it to the next level during last year’s lockdown, it’s always a good time to treat the cocktail lovers in your life to a selection of the best cocktail gifts around. From mixology books and Bloody Mary kits, to boozy cakes and beautiful barware, feel confident you’re buying something they’ll really love and use this Christmas.
1. The Bloody Box
As a handy, boozy, and delicious gift all in one, the Bloody Box comes with everything you need to craft perfect Bloody Marys from home. We have no doubt it’ll be a welcome addition to any cocktail lover’s Christmas festivities (but most importantly, to their morning after).
2. Pornstar Martini Gift Box
Take the fuss out of homemade cocktails with this pre-made bottle from Liberation Cocktails. We love their pornstar martini, which comes with a cocktail shaker and martini glass, but there are plenty of other flavours to try too, including their espresso martini and gin garden.
3. Classic Cocktails Art Print
