The Do’s and Don’ts of Holiday Giving: Gifting Alcohol 101

It’s the most wonderful time of the year — the time for giving (and receiving) gifts. Whether you’re looking to surprise a family member, a boss, or simply surprise an old friend, alcohol serves as the perfect gift.

Giving spirits can be a wonderful gift during this year - especially ones that are delicious and easy to make. If you’re looking to pour a friend a drink during the end of this trying year, there are a few ways to make sure your gift receives the toast it deserves.

Do’s and Dont’s

Do: Consider their personal taste profiles.
If they love sweet and fruity, consider trying the Glenlivet 12 Year Old Strawberry or Avion Island Escape. If you think they like a hint of holiday cheer with their drink - consider our Johnnie Walker Spiced Apple Highball or Tanqueray Gin Cinnamon.

Do: Deliver to their door.
Now more than ever, people are looking for convenience (and safety!) in their drinking experiences with close friends and family.

Do: Support local.
With many businesses closed and many bars and bartenders out of work, it’s more important (and cooler!) than ever to shop up for people impacted by the hospitality crisis. Here at Sourced, we’re doing everything we can to support the people that used to help make our outings.

Do: Embrace fresh ingredients.
Fresh ingredients change everything — whether it be in your favorite meal or your favorite drink.

Do: Consider the crowd.
If you’re gifting to a household or office, consider gifting enough for everyone to experiment with a new drink. Our Sourced on Tap allow you to consider both small and large sizes of our draft cocktail infuser.

Don’t: Provide only one option.
We’ve noticed that people prefer either a clear spirit or dark spirit when raising a glass. Don’t make that difficult decision for your gift recipient. If you are unsure about your friend’s preference, order a holiday cocktail kit from Sourced that features one of each, so that there’s a drink for any taste.

Don’t: Just gift a bottle.
As great as alcohol is, some people aren’t informed on the art of making the perfect cocktail. Go the extra mile and be extra thoughtful by giving them full flavors for them to experience and enjoy individually or with the closest members of their tribe. Our cocktail kits come with a homemade mixers, batched together using fresh, whole ingredients (with no artificial preservatives added) that bring out the distinct flavors for your choice of spirit.

Don’t: Embrace classics but don’t be boring.
Enough said. Be creative. Now is the time to experiment with a new experience and new flavor profiles.
